Web Application Developer

Joshua Davidson, Chop Dawg

 

So what will we learn today

 

People use and need Apps to balance their business, family and life Joshua is a Web App Developer, & Founder of Chop Dawg

 

How does Joshua help Startups, entrepreneurs, business owners?

 

Joshua founded Chop Dawg in 2009 when he was just 16.

 

Super Monkey Ball was one of the most popular apps back in 2009 when Chop Dawg started out as a web design firm by 23 the company now provides entrepreneurs who have mostly non-technical backgrounds who need someone with the technicals needed to develop web applications.

 

They have over 180 startups clients and if I interviewed these clients they would tell me that Joshua is the go-to source for turning their web app ideas into actual products.

 

How does he do this through a variety of services, like web development, mobile development, user interface design, branding.

 

Some of our trusted friends in our Listenup audience are non-technical entrepreneurs but they have great ideas that may need crowdsourcing or outsourcing or need to hire a company like Chop Dawg and founders such as yourself

 

Our listeners want help turning their validated ideas into a reality

 

Let’s jump right into your personal story so people can get to know Joshua better

 

Tell us a little bit about your background and how it ties in to how you are helping people today.

He says, in the beginning, you could either label him either the most technical, non-technical person or flipping it around the most non-technical, technical person. His talent was building things that other people care about.

He recommends thinking about issues or problems you are dealing with to think about ideas for a business.

Tell us how you got started in business and what should be done in the first 30 days of business

Our last guest John Richards spoke to us about the importance of failing faster and pivoting early – looking back on your own startup what would you have done the first 30 days to startup better

On sales: Sell to those who want to be sold to. Sell on why my team is the best, educate them

Chop Dawg’s goal is to help entrepreneurs build their product that solves real-life problems, and then help them scale it.

 

What are the reoccurring themes that you experience as an entrepreneur that you can summarize for the benefit of other aspiring, startups looking for help and resources to either startup, and grow a business or get experience as an intern or find a job.

What do you think are the most common mistakes other startups or entrepreneurs or students interested in business make that delay or prevent their success?

Can you give us some of the essential understandings entrepreneurs/students need to have the proper mindset to deal with the daily challenges they face?

How successful are you? Joshua discusses his revenue, costs, and number of clients. He is even focusing on virtual reality and wearables.

 

How did you get featured on MSNBC, NBC, Fox, Technically, AOL, Mashable, EliteDaily, Huffington Post, CBS, the Examiner, and the list continues to grow! (And now, Listenup Show!)

 

You see many startups on the rise in incubators for example, Y Combinator, so when did the light bulb finally go off where you connected all the dots and saw this serious market opportunity to go beyond just doing web design and development for clients.

 

Was it like clients were just reaching out to you and your team? How did you get the media to cover the company ?

 

Q: How do you take those idea or concepts and build them for the client – what’s your process? crowd funding through kickstarter or indigo is a quick economical way to validate physical goods and products but how about apps / digital assets

 

Entrepreneurial education is important yet you decided to drop out of school – after only a short period of time –

 

Discuss the story of the drummer of Metallica to motivate, inspire.

Josh talks to us about education resources available to the startups entrepreneurs.

 

What type of revenue were you earning at that time?.
