In this week’s episode of Extra Paycheck Podcast I am joined by Christopher Gimmer, an entrepreneur and the founder of Snappa.io
Christopher Gimmer wanted to make it on the Wall Street but decided to get an office job for the government instead. However this life didn’t last too long as Christopher knew that he wanted to be an entrepreneur and work on his own terms.
Christopher launched a few interesting online projects (that are still very active) but he realized that he wasted a lot of time on trying to create proper images for his online content. Hiring a designer meant another expense and sometimes several days (if not weeks) of waiting. How can a non-designer create great images? This is how Snappa.io was born. This awesome tools allows everyone and anyone to create great, professional images with ease.

Favorite quote in today’s episode: “You can read all the blog posts and listen to as many podcasts as you want but the experience you’ll gain from actually starting and launching cannot replace anything you’ll read in a business book”
