Suzanne Vlietstra, Suzi Vlietstra: The Perfect Entrepreneur

BizSoup Podcast Radio Episode 064 with John DeBevoise

Suzanne “Suzi” Vlietstra calls herself ‘the original entremanure’ because of her lifelong love of horses and entrepreneurial innovation.

Competing with different types of horses over the years helped Suzi learn about her customers’ ‘stable personalities’ as she built her business which she sold a few years ago; now she lives at and runs a 60-horse boarding stable in Southern California.
