    How Do You Build An App?

    How Do You Build An App?

    George created Shebah, which is a (crazy successful if you don't mind) ride share app. She knows a lot about how you build an app, and so does tech wizard Sarah Moran from Girl Geek Academy. In this episode they'll tell you how you build an app. But more importantly, what is your Minimum Viable Product - the smallest and most affordable version of your idea? Eg, Jo is creating a 1 hour show each week, as her MVP for her radio station, Broad Radio. Get this right before you build an app, and maybe you won't need to spend the money building an app at all.

    Everyone's A Marketer

    A complete lack of qualifications hasn’t stopped Jo from forging ahead building Broad Radio. But she learned a valuable lesson when it came to her marketing plan. Turns out it’s more than a logo and a catchy slogan. In this episode, George and Jo are joined by the woman who was honest enough to tell Jo her amateur attempts at marketing weren't going to cut it, Chriss Mannix, Director of Soda Communications. Here, they talk defining your brand, how to be consistent and transparent, and where you should put your marketing dollars. Hint - it should include a professional!

    How To Get Money For Your Biz Pt 1

    People say you can make your dreams come true - all it takes is belief and hard work. Yeah, nah, that's not strictly true. You can't pay wages with belief. Or advertise your business or develop product. In fact, you can't build a business without money. But how do you magic up the $100K plus you'll need to get off the ground? George and Jo are joined by entrepreneur, CEO and finance expert, Shivani Gopal, from The Remarkable Woman. This remarkable woman tells us the first steps, including what to put in your pitch deck and what makes a good investor (hint, it's like dating - you don't jump in bed with just anyone!). George brings her expertise, having broken records raising investment for Shebah, and if all this finance talk is like a new language for you - Jo is right there with you!

2.5 million in the red

This should be called She did, so you don’t have to! The Sheba website financials show millions of dollars in loss so why would anyone take advice from this CEO?
