Martha’s Interview with Austin Business Journal [video]

Image

Martha Stewart sits for an extensive interview to share her thoughts about business and entrepreneurship. Colin Pope, the interviewer, says that, of the 20-plus interviews he’s taped, this one with Martha is the all-time most requested. The video is 45-minutes of pure Martha fabulousness. Enjoy!

From the Austin Business Journal:

This is an entrepreneur who has amassed a reported net worth of $638 million as she built one of the world’s most recognizable brands, so I was eager to sit down with her last year and extract some business intelligence for aspiring entrepreneurs.

The conversation ran the gamut — from mistakes made in her startup days to how she markets in the digital world. She got in a few laughs about her prison stay, but I was pleased to be a part of almost an hour of straight business talk from someone who rarely goes on about corporate strategy.

In this video, a relaxed Martha is interviewed by Bravo TV’s Andy Cohen. (Yes, Martha dutifully answers the “Shag, Marry, Kill” question!)  I’m alway amazed at how even-keeled and relaxed Martha is during interviews, given all the is going on at MSLO these days. After so many years in business, she seems well-equipped and able to weather ANYTHING that comes her way. Go get ’em, Martha!

Fun stuff, right? Read Martha’s thoughts on the interview, and see photos, on The Martha Stewart Blog.

Surprise Judge Martha Judges TODAY Viewers’ Birthday Cakes

Martha made a surprise appearance on the Today Show this morning, to act as judge for the show’s homemade birthday cake contest. Martha’s criteria for judging a cake’s success: 1) Creativity/originality; 2) beautiful design; and 3) taste. Later, she added that, of the three, taste is the most important. I love this segment: Martha, while friendly and encouraging to all contestants, takes the tasting and judging of the cakes VERY seriously. FOMs: How nervous would you be in Martha was tasting YOUR cake? I would freak!

BTW, if you’re brave enough to do so, you can check out classic birthday cakes, with mouthwatering photos as well as recipes, on Martha’s website. WARNING: Do not click if you are hungry! You have been warned! 🙂

Martha Stewart on choosing one final meal: “Probably good, fresh eggs…delicious salad from the garden”

Martha seems so relaxed in this delightful interview with Piers Morgan on CNN. In this clip, she discusses what she’d eat (and drink) for her last meal. Of course, we FOMs already knew that eggs were Martha’s favorite food, right?

From CNN.com:

“If I was very hungry and I was told that I only had an hour?,” she clarified the question. “I probably wouldn’t be thinking about eating, Piers, but…”

“What would you start with?,” wondered the host.

“Probably good, fresh eggs. Delicious salad from the garden,” Stewart shared. “Boiled, scrambled. Just a really good farm butter.”

“And the main course, what would you have?” he followed up.

“That’s my main course,” she concluded.

Martha talks rap music on The Talk

Love this clip from Martha’s May 14 appearance on The Talk. Martha brought some goodies for the show’s hosts and dished on, of all things, rap music! Seems Martha is not only friends with many rap stars, but is a fan of rap music herself! In the interview, Martha claims that she herself cannot rap–but I ask you FOMs: Do ANY of us believe Martha couldn’t rap if she set her mind to it? I’m certain she’d be excellent!

From YouTube:

Martha Stewart visits The Talk’s New York studio and reveals her secret love of rap music: “I love Eminem, Kanye West & I tried rap with P. Diddy.” Go M-C Martha!

UPDATE:

According to Rolling Stone Magazine, Eminem has revealed that he is working on his new album just days after Martha urged him to do so! That’s right, Martha’s command over the rap world is slowly becoming evident. Martha speaks, Eminem jumps–that’s how she rolls! In all seriousness, Eminem has announced that he is starting to work on his first solo album since 2010’s “Recovery”; news that will no doubt please Martha, a fan of rap music.
