Daminion Blog

Interviews with successful people

We decided to launch a new blog rubric: Interviews with successful people.

Yes, I realize we are a software company and this is not a typical blog topic for companies like ours, I think many of you will enjoy reading the real world success stories.

We’ll interview successful people, entrepreneurs and small & medium business owners, because Daminion Server is designed for small businesses and small creative teams.

I hope you like our idea.

Below is a list of 20 questions we provide to those being interviewed. They select the questions they want to answer. If you have any suggestions or wish to suggest new questions, we welcome them!
