Steve And Jean Case Redefine Success At Aspen Ideas Festival (VIDEO)

WATCH: Former AOL CEO, Wife Redefine Success

Thought-leaders gathering in Aspen this week have turned the conversation to the Third Metric -- how success is not simply about the cash in your pocket or accolades on your wall.

Case Foundation CEO Jean Case and her husband, former AOL CEO Steve Case, shared their Third Metric with HuffPost at the Aspen Ideas Festival -- a gathering of international leaders discussing innovative solutions for some of the world's most pressing issues.

Taking a cue from the Third Metric conference, which urged people to define success as empathy and wisdom and not just money and power, Jean Case measures her success not by what she has but rather by what she can give back.

“At the end of the day, I'll speak for myself, I hope I leave more than I took," Case, whose foundation invests in people and nonprofits creating social change, told HuffPost Live. "The greatest joy I get is the opportunity to work with others and try to make a difference.”

Steve and Jean are joining HuffPost from the Aspen Ideas Conference where they delivered a panel entitled, "Be Fearless: How Big Ideas, Experimentation, and Failing Forward Can Change The World."

This video is part of a series of interviews with speakers, attendees and panelists at The Aspen Ideas Festival, produced by The Huffington Post in conjunction with The Aspen Institute. For more videos from the series, click here. For more information about The Aspen Institute, click here.
