Opening up the program today was Regular Contributor Brian Kornfeld, Owner of PopKorn Apps. Brian saw an opportunity in app design to shave tens of thousands of dollars off of the cost of app development and took the entrepreneurial dive with PopKorn Apps. Brian has produced many apps and can get that idea to the marketplace for you. He spends the hour with us and shares some incredible information on how to monetize apps and also talks about some of the differences in mobile operating systems and how they relate to apps. He shares with us also the story of his entrepreneurial journey which began when he had an idea for app that he wanted to produce. While trying to outsource it, he was amazed at the incredible costs associated with the app production and worked to find a solution. That app was RhiKnow and he successfully built and launched that app on his own. The RhiKnow app, which is available on iOS and Android operating systems worked as a social network but with the ability to look for feedback and recommendations on different outings from people within your own sphere of influence. The idea was to get feedback from people you knew and trusted versus online networks that have feedback from many unknown sources. Brian advises if you have that idea, don’t wait. Get in touch with him today for a free discussion over a cup of coffee. Find him online at www.popkornapps.com or phone at 727-415-6705.
