Hi Everyone!

I’ve just been informed by Jordan that Collis has agreed to do an interview with us on the upcoming Marketplace community podcast! If you missed the last one, don’t forget to check it out and also subscribe to the podcast!

So, as you can imagine it’s quite the honor having him with us on the next episode and we want to be sure we do it right!

My question for you all, is what kind of questions would you like to see asked? I’m open to ideas, but please try to keep them on the topic of questions for Collis, not feature requests (send those to support!) :P

What questions would you want to hear asked now that we have this amazing opportunity to chat with the one and only Collis?

Thanks for any feedback you guys and gals can provide!

Cheers,

Drew

PS Did I mention you can/should subscribe to the podcast so you don’t miss the upcoming interview yet? Well you should! :bigsmile:

Questions I’d be interested in hearing asked:

  • What was his first ever job? (was it being a retail slave like most of us!)
  • Where does he see envato (as a company, brand and icon) in 5 years time?
  • How many new sites does he have up his sleeve over the next 12 months? (and can we know about any – apart from WebDesign Tuts!)

Thanks for asking, Drew! :D

1. When are we going to be able to buy (or get free?) your autobiography? :P

2. When starting envato, did you have any idea you would be so successful? What were your inspiration to continue, and overlook failures?

3. How many assistants do you have? :D :P
