HOA 45: Interview with Marc Benzakein
This was a fantastic interview with a few hiccups. We had a great time talking to Marc, but somewhere around the 13 minute mark we got cut off from the live Hangout on Air. We got back up and running in a couple of minutes and have edited the video to slice everything together. Marc stuck with us and accepted his bad luck and history with live Hangouts and we had a great time getting on and off track for the rest of the interview.
Marc lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where he spends as much free time as possible hanging out with his wife Jessica and being a general goof-off with the five kids in the house. When not doing that, you can find him working on WordPress creations and speaking about them at various WordCamps across the United States.
Marc discussed with us his family life, how he got into WordPress, ServerPress, and his involvement in the WordPress community. He also discussed his marketing ploy to grow his cult by offering free toasters and gave some great cult growing strategies.
