Extreme Diver Interview – Jan Goldsworthy

As I have mentioned before, I love doing in person interviews! They’re the best. So a couple weeks ago I came over to the shop and low and behold Jan and Mike Goldworthy were here! Now they live in Texas so really to catch them if not on a trip is definitely not easy but I was able to. I got interviews from both of them and we had everyone there that day rolling on the floor laughing with the answers! See this is why I like in person interviews. Maybe I should start videoing these interviews… hmmm… probably not. Anyway this is another one of those a little birdy told me that someone’s birthday is in May, in fact this week… so what a perfect time to share Jan’s interview!
