CEO and co-founder of Wildfire

My co-founder and fiancé, Alain [Chuard], says to worry about the things you can change and don't worry about the things you can't. Our company operates on top of platforms. As those platforms change, that can have a huge impact on us -- either positive or negative. That can make things stressful. Plus, as we were growing, the economy created more stress. Alain would remind me that if it was something we could fix, let's get to work and fix it. If not, we're wasting our time with worry.
