Lee LeFever — CommonCraft.com | Co-founder
In this episode I talk to Lee LeFever, co-founder of Common Craft and author of the freshly released book Big Enough. I've been following Lee since my earliest social media (ad)ventures, and deeply respect the quality of Sachi (Lee's wife and partner) and his work, their articulation of purpose, and their deliberate commitment to designing a business that perfectly enables their quality of life.
We talk about the process of writing this important and timely book, Lee and Sachi's partnership, the dangers of success without direction, and much more.
