Today we get to go back in time and hear all about the origins of MeetMe from the app’s co-founder Catherine Cook Connelly. Catherine founded the company in 2005 while she was still in high school (total #girlboss!) Back then it was a website called My Yearbook and, in this interview, we talk all about the creation of that original platform and how it has transformed into the MeetMe app that you know and love today.  Catherine shares some of the top successes and struggles in those early years of building the platform, and her advice for entrepreneurs. We also talk about the decision to add live streaming to MeetMe, what are some of her favorite live streams to watch, and her own personal experience with live streaming.  Catherine also shares what she feels has been the best part of creating MeetMe and why live streaming has only made that better.  If you want to catch one of Catherine’s streams, find her on MeetMe as CatherineC ! *make sure it’s the account with the official MeetMe tag  Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/streamwars/message
