Early in July, Rand Fishkin, founder of SEOmoz, did an interview about the early days of his business and its trajectory to date. It’s a heartening interview with some very candid and revealing questioning from the interviewer Andrew Warner of Mixergy.

In Rand’s words “it was a very personal interview about the background of the company, but turned out to be a great experience”. He talks about the history of the company and some of the tough times he went through to get it off the ground.

At 60+ minutes, its a very long interview (I didn’t quite make it to the end…). But if you’re looking to build a business in the SEO space there are some thought provoking messages.

So I’d highly recommend you put some time aside and check out the interview here.
