SPOS #749 - Lee LeFever On Building A Lifestyle Business
I came across a useful video in 2004 on YouTube that was called, RSS In Plain English, by a company called, Common Craft. They used a whiteboard and paper cutouts to explain stuff. Lee LeFever was the founder (and maker) of those videos. Known as the "explainer video genre." In 2012, he published his first book, The Art of Explanation, and more recently, Big Enough - Building a Business that Scales with Your Lifestyle.
SPOS #748 - Seth Godin On Shipping Your Best Work
Seth Godin sent me an advance copy of his latest book, The Practice. I cracked the spine, and this book grabbed me by the throat. I found myself taking notes, smiling, thinking, reflecting, and finding my groove back. That's what Seth Godin does to me. Every. Damn. Time. Seth is the author of twenty books. Beyond his daily blogging prose, he has a great podcast (The Akimbo Podcast) and has been doing a ton of courses online that include marketing and podcasting workshops and his signature, altMBA.

Growing up as a Russian immigrant in West Texas, Olga Khazan always felt that there was something different about her.

This brings us to her new book, Weird. Olga is a staff writer for The Atlantic, covering health, gender, and science.

A great podcast. Crisp, intelligent questioning makes for a great listen
So much information packed into every episode and really great guests! I really enjoy listening to Six Pixels of Separation to hear about various businesses and different approaches, and Mitch is an awesome host.
Host says “Sort of” WAY TOO MUCH
Great content but the host says “sort of” way too much, and in many cases it’s contradictory to the points he trying to make. One time I counted and he said “sort of” 37 times in one episode. Considering he’s speaking 50% of the time in the interview, that’s a lot. This is very different than saying “um or like” because “sort of” is a phrase that sets up the point about to be made, which can reduce the validity of the point. Super educated guy but needs to work on this because it’s a bad habit and it’s very annoying.
