Brian Lee

Brian Lee, who co-founded LegalZoom, ShoeDazzle, and The Honest Co., took the stage with our own Sarah Lacy on Thursday to discuss his experience building those companies, the Los Angeles startup ecosystem, and how a former lawyer came to sell diapers and women’s shoes.

Lee talked about his commitment to running both ShoeDazzle and The Honest Co., why competition is good for ShoeDazzle,  how he re-assumed the leadership position at the previously-flailing shoes company. (Whether ShoeDazzle was previously-flailing or just flailing remains to be seen.)

The full interview is available for streaming below. Our thanks to Cornerstone on Demand for sponsoring last night’s event and Santa Monica’s Real Office Centers for hosting it. We’ll be back with our next guess, Andreessen Horowitz’s Chris Dixon (who invested in PandoDaily personally), in New York on May 16.
