Podcast Interview with Mitch Joel – Six Pixels of Separation

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.

Before this interview, I had never had a discussion with Mitch, but we’ve been connected online for over thirteen years. It was so awesome to finally be able to talk with him.

This interview is interesting because it goes into the early stages of Common Craft videos, why they became popular, and what we did as a result. I respect Mitch’s perspective, as he’s a successful entrepreneur who has seen all sides, from big to small.
