This was such a neat interview because while we were emailing back and forth, JB Lexington signed a deal with a publisher! Dreams really do come true. You can check out more on Twitter. Now, to the interview!
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I loved to draw growing up, everything from realism to abstract. So naturally I thought I wanted to be an artist. That didn’t happen, I guess now the artist in me has manifested itself through words.
What do you do now?
Right now I run a construction company. I project manage, I people manage. I like to think I dont micro manage, I think of it more just wanting to have control of everything I do. Lol
I’m giving you a super power that will make your biggest dream come true–guaranteed. What’s going to happen?
Wow. Thats a loaded question. Do I answer like Miss America and say I want to end poverty and have World Peace or do I tell you that with the super power that will grant my dream come true, I want my novel to become a best seller and then end up on the red carpet on the night of the screening for the film adaptation of my book. Its a toss up really, what do you think 😉
Did you ever give up on your dreams?
Never! I may mot have seen them through just altered them to be more realistic and possibly with greater reward.
What advice do you have for people who are trying to decide if they should chase their dreams?
I would say be true to yourself. Nothing in this world is unattainable if you work hard. You appreciate your rewards in life so much more if you earn them. Self entitlement is a cop out. Be proud of who you are and never apologize for what you want in life.
If you could have any super power in the world, besides what I just gave you, what would it be?
I would want to be able to talk to animals. How cool would it be to have a conversation with your cat or dog?
