On the show today, I have the lovely Tara Reed. She’s the founder of Apps Without Code and she basically teaches people how to build apps even if they have no clue when it comes to technology (that’s me!). So, if you are interested in doing that, then you’re going to love the beginning of this session because she basically gives us a lesson in creating apps, which was amazing. Then, we get into the nitty-gritty of being an entrepreneur. This part of the interview inspired me so much.
I love having just honest, real conversations with entrepreneurs who open up about the truth of building a business. It is not a walk in the park, even though so many people make it seem that way (hello, Instagram!). It can leave us thinking, “What is wrong with me?” The thing is, it’s a rollercoaster for all of us no matter how successful we are. Like Tara shared in this episode, you have to enjoy the process; you really do. I’m so excited for you to listen to this. Honestly, she shares so much amazing stuff. Get ready to be inspired. Enjoy this episode.
