Podcast Interview – Live with Marcus Whitney

September 15, 2020

By: Lee LeFever

I write books and run a company called Common Craft. I recently moved from Seattle to a rural island. Here, I write about online business, book publishing, modern home construction, and occasionally, dumb jokes.

I first met Marcus back in the early 2000s. He was visiting Seattle for a tech conference and we hit it off. We lost touch for a while and I reached out to him a few months ago. To my surprise, he was also working on a book about entrepreneurship called Create and Orchestrate. His book came out before mine, but we shared a lot of the same concerns about publishing during COVID, etc. I recently read his book and found it to be a practical guide to entrepreneurship from someone who had done it. Among other things, I really love some of his core messages:

  • Entrepreneurship is accessible to anyone
  • You have to put in the work
  • Balancing important elements of your life is a key to success
