You Are Not Your Company | Susan Stevens at Wespire

In part one of my conversation with Susan Stevens, the founder and CEO of Wespire, she talked about how her company combines the interactivity of social media and the fun of game mechanics to help people live better.

In this second part of our conversation, Susan discusses some of the immense challenges of running a startup—especially as a woman and a parent. She also gives some important advice on how to develop a realistic path toward growth for your company—and it may not always involve you at the helm.
