Six Pixels of Separation Podcast

Welcome to episode #742 of Six Pixels of Separation.

Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation - Episode #742 - Host: Mitch Joel. I've been following the Big Think videos since they first started. Always fascinating perspectives, insights and stories from real leaders in business, life, entertainment and beyond. The truth is, that I knew nothing about the Big Think story. Until now. Victoria Montgomery Brown has built and run Big Think for the last 12 years (along with her co-founder, Peter Hopkins). It's become one of the leading digital media knowledge company, making people and companies smarter and faster. The company wasn't a venture-funded tech darling, born and raised in a Silicon Valley incubator. It's a scrappy, creative, labor of love that was born in a New York City bar, and raised in a rented closet in someone else's office. It's had to fight for its existence most of the time. And now, Victoria is not only telling the story, but taking her life lessons to help other female entrepreneurs get started. Her just published book is, Digital Goddess - The Unfiltered Lessons of a Female Entrepreneur. "This book is about dealing with the way things are, even when you don’t like it, and being yourself, even when it seems like a drawback. It’s about sucking it up, making the hard choices, and dealing with the consequences. It’s about being honest no matter what is going down," according to Victoria, who has been called, “the anti-Elizabeth Holmes.” Victoria prides herself on being nothing like the ill-fated Theranos CEO.
