Q: What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning ?
A: With every new day comes fresh thoughts and new challenges. Getting started on these gets me up in the morning. I’m running 2 businesses as well as being TheSaxMan so there’s always lots to get on with. For @ActiveArtistsAgency its working with new & existing clients, planning events and travel logistics and building our amazing family of artistic talent! For @SaxuallyActive we are writing a piece of music for each piece of art and planning “SaxParties” all over the world.
Ben Barnett – “If I could choose anything I would want the power to stop famine, animals going into extinction, global warming, the ability to clean the plastics out the ocean in one quick swoop.”
Q: What would be your super power?
A: Having a super power would be awesome. I would love to be able to fly or hold my breath for hours and be like aqua man as I love the ocean but I think if I could choose anything I would want the power to stop famine, animals going into extinction, global warming, the ability to clean the plastics out the ocean in one quick swoop. Basically, my super power would be to help save our amazing planet and everything on it!
Q: Who is your inspiration?
A: I’m inspired every day by all sorts of things! Humans, animals, Mother Nature and more. I think if I had to quote someone for inspiration it would be Walt Disney. “If you can dream it, you can do it”
Q: What’s the most interesting thing you’ve read this week ?
