WordPress CEO runs a billion-dollar company with no offices or email

Even if you aren’t familiar with what WordPress is, or use it to publish content on the internet, there’s a good chance you’ve visited a website that runs on it — and probably within just the past 24 hours.
That’s because WordPress — an open-source content-management system — powers an astonishing 25% of all websites today.

I recently spoke with Matt Mullenweg, the creator of WordPress and CEO of Automattic, the company that offers a range of products and services for WordPress users.

Automattic is valued today at over $1 billion.

Matt joined me for a wide-ranging conversation on my podcast, in which he shared his aspiration to capture the 75% of the internet that WordPress doesn’t already manage.
