#24: Starting a Mission-driven Company with Ryan Naylor
Welcome back to another episode of the We Live to Build podcast.
Our guest today is Ryan Naylor, an American entrepreneur based in Arizona.
He’s currently the CEO and founder of VIVAHR, a startup created off the back of a horrible Shark Tank experience because he vowed to go deep and discover who he wanted to be moving forward.
Before Viva, he started and ran a marketing agency, a job board, and a watch company.
Ryan’s story is full of ups and downs, and I know you’ll enjoy this humbling journey.
Let’s give a warm welcome to Ryan!
