Circa CEO On Overcoming Obstacles: 'Why Not Try To Solve It Yourself?'

Matt Galligan, co-founder and CEO of Circa, a recently launched news app, joined HuffPost Live Monday to discuss his philosophy when it comes to problem-solving. His approach, he said, is inspired by his grandparents.

"Whenever they had this problem that they couldn't solve, they kind of just built something and did it themselves," he said of his grandparents, who were farmers. "I found inspiration in that in the sense that if you get a problem and can't find a way around it, then why not try to solve it yourself?"
