In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Venturer spotlights television host Alex Wehrley. Wehrley speaks about her family, growing up in a "cookie-cutter" suburb, and how her background has helped to shape her as an entrepreneur and businesswoman today.

Specifically, Wehrley cites her late grandmother as inspiration, who was bold, brash and unafraid of other people's opinions.
