Welcome back to How To Build An App!

This week we’re sitting down with another founder of one of our earliest app builds!

Doug Cartwright is the founder of The Daily Shifts, a personal development platform and media company with an online course, workshops, personal coaching, and a mobile app.

The Daily Shifts app helps its users build healthy daily habits with growth challenges, daily mindfulness prompts, and instructional tools.

The idea came to Doug as he was going through a rough patch in his own sales career and he started doubling down on personal development.

He noticed that the more he focused on meditation, eating healthy, and daily goal setting he not only felt better, but his sales career started to expand.

After developing a morning routine that worked really well for him and his sales team he started thinking about how he could turn it into a company.

And then the idea hit him — it’s a simple, intuitive, and beautiful app that people can use each day to make small changes and small “shifts” in their life.

The Daily Shifts was born.

In this episode of How to Build An App, we’ll be walking you through the creation of The Daily Shifts app.

Included in the discussion is insight about the importance of communication within your team, managing timeline and budget expectations, and how to build excitement and momentum behind your idea.
