Confidently Launch & Learn with Sheena Allen
Have you thought of a few good ideas that you wanted to develop but not sure how to make it happen? You let the idea evaporate because you felt that you needed experience or knowledge in a specific area and not sure where you should have started. Today I want to encourage you not to let the perception of lack of resources stop you from turning your idea into a tangible reality. Spend time on social media platforms, at Barnes & Noble, and surfing the internet for the answers and resources that you need. I recently had the opportunity to chat with Sheena Allen the Founder/CEO of Sheena Allen Apps. Sheena created and launched her first app idea without any direct or specific tech industry knowledge that has in a few short years become a thriving and successful tech business for her that she has had no formal training for.
Episode ten of Career Tipper blog’s podcast, The Confidence Conversation features Sheena Allen. Sheena started her company as a senior at the University of Southern Mississippi. She started the company from a random idea after having a long receipt after leaving Wal-Mart. To date, Sheena Allen Apps is home to 6 apps (Dubblen, Orange Snap, InstaFunds, PicSlit, TwtBooth, and Words on Pics). Sheena Allen Apps currently has over 3 million downloads and counting. Tune in and listen to Sheena chat about how she is confidently establishing her presence in the tech world. She also shares how she chooses her business partners and the development team that work with her. She also reflects on her lessons learned along the way to date. In addition to the dynamics of her success blueprint that is inspired by what sparks the passion within her to pursue her goals without the need or desire to copy others.
