In this season, I take a trip down to Nashville to learn about the city's vibrant startup and entrepreneur culture. In each episode, I speak in depth with someone who founded a company there. My goal is to learn about their story and how that led them to starting their company.
Ashlee Ammons is the co-founder and COO of Mixtroz, a mobile app that event hosts use to help event attendees meet and network with one another at their event. In the interview, Ashlee discusses her very interesting career journey and how that ultimately led to her to start Mixtroz with her mom.
And just a quick disclaimer before we jump in. We talk about breast cancer screenings and physical health during the interview. And I'd like to be clear that I am not a medical professional and have not received any formal medical training, nor has Ashlee. Any type of information I provide (or Ashlee provides) is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice or treatment. So if you're seeking medical advice, please consult your doctor. That being said, according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, "adult women of all ages are encouraged to perform breast self-exams at least once a month." So women, even young women, don't wait until it's too late. Get your breasts checked.
I pasted a link in the show notes to breast self exam instructions on the National Breast Cancer Foundation's website. You can find the show notes for this episode on the Stories website, which is thestoriespodcast.com.
