Show Notes

Welcome back to How To Build An App!

This is part 2 of our conversation with Josh Nielsen, the founder of Zencastr.

In last week’s episode we talked about Josh’s back story and how Zencastr came about, so if you haven’t listened to episode 30 yet, check it out!

It’s a great episode where Josh shares his own personal experiences of struggle, rejection, and failure on his way to success.

This week we’ll be continuing the conversation, delving into some more of the nitty gritty details of the process.

This episode focuses more on the importance of building a dynamic team, learning to delegate, and pivoting to overcome issues that are out of your control (like the COVID pandemic).

One more thing, a lot of our listeners may not have a technical background and that can present its own issues when you’re trying to start a tech company.

In this episode, Josh addresses how a non-technical founder can successfully run a tech start-up so stick around for that!
