It's really inspiring to hear how other startups get their companies started. I'm in the process of starting my own company and these kinds of posts really inspire me. How old is the CEO of hootsuite? He looks like he is in his early 20s.

Great interview! I'm a HootSuite user for a year now. It makes my life so much easier because I have several accounts that I use for personal and business. I'm using the HootSuite for BB and I think it's just amazing!

Ryan Holmes is brilliant. I have been using Hootsuite from the minute I found out about it. It is so helpful and such a time management saver. I use the mobile hootsuite on my blackberry all of the time. It is nice to be able to do everything remotely. Hootsuite helps make my job easier.

I always love listening to interviews with Ryan Holmes, CEO of hootsuite and how he came this far into his career with pure hard work and determination!! It is seldom we see people being so down-to earth and humble about their journey to success and I am sure that he will inspire a lot of youngsters to start projects of their own and emulate him!! I for one am a great admirer of this young entrepreunuer who has a lot going for him because of his commitment to what he does!!
