Incredibly PUMPED UP about today’s guest and, gentleman, Chris Savage who joins the, A Desire to Inspire with Manny Patrick show, who I met back in April, in Boston, Cambridge to be exact during a local entrepreneur night.
He’s the Co-founder and CEO of Wistia, an incredible online video posting platform that now has hosted up to 300,000 videos and has 300,000 customers worldwide, with nearly 100 people on their team.
Today, Chris is very people and community focused, and I saw him offering up tons of Entrepreneurship and business building advice to people there in Cambridge, that evening..
But, in the beginning days, they were running crazy lean, living with 10 people in a house, spending 15 dollars a week on food and sharing it amongst all of them.
Today it’s much different, Chris now regularly plays tennis, meditates, and works out even if he has a mountain of emails to attend to. He puts his family, friends and team first, and he’s willing to thoughtfully hear people out and build a really creative environment with the thrill he gets from his joy of teaching.
He likes to see people grow, when everyone in the team and the company is growing.
