All Thing D’s Kara Swisher recently sat down with Groupon’s CEO Andrew Mason via Skype for a video interview. If you’ve been following the coupon king’s journey you know they’ve hit some pretty big pot holes and since their IPO last November, the company’s shares have plummeted more than 80 percent (MSN).
As Swisher points out the past year has also been tough on Mason who has stood steadfastly by the company as it has taken a beating. Mason says that he loves Groupon, that the company is his life. But the sometimes goofy CEO faces some tough decisions ahead and he may be running out of time to steer the giant Groupon ship back on course.
