How a Camera and Hustle Created a $30 Million Empire with Joel Holland
Get ready to be inspired. I want to bring this week's guest onto the show for a while now. Joel Holland is the founder and CEO of VideoBlocks, the first subscription-based provider of stock video and audio, with over 100,000 customers in the television and video production industry, from NBC to MTV to pro-sumers and hobbyists looking to enhance their video projects and productions. There's a lot indie filmmakers can learn from Joel. 

In 2013, VideoBlocks was ranked the 32nd fastest growing technology company in the US/Canada, and the 2nd fastest growing technology company in the DC region by Deloitte for the Fast500, for achieving 7,000% revenue growth over the past 5 years.

In 2012, VideoBlocks was named the #4 Fastest Growing Media Company by Inc. Magazine, and made the prestigious Inc. 500 list. 

For his work with VideoBlocks, Joel has been named one of the "Top 25 Entrepreneurs Under 25" by BusinessWeek Magazine, "Young Entrepreneur of the Year" by the United States Small Business Administration, and "Entrepreneur of the Year" for the Greater Washington DC Region by Ernst & Young.

In 2013, Joel was recognized on the Inc. "30 Under 30" list: He is the definition of the word "Hustle." Sit back and enjoy my conversation with Joel Holland.
