I really want to be a good CEO. I want to push myself to do this for a lot longer because I learn so much from the process. I think that by forcing myself to deal with all these employee challenges will also make me be a better founder for when I eventually start another company.
Today’s guest was coding by 8 years old, starting her first business at 12, dropping out of high school at 15 and then launching her primary business, at 19.
Jessica Mah the CEO of inDinero is joining us today. The Y Combinator seed accelerator called her the “closest thing they have to a female Mark Zuckerberg” after graduating with $1.2M in funding from them and she’s also been featured on Forbes 30 Under 30. inDinero provides accounting and tax services for small businesses and while it’s on a streak now, the company went through some growing pains after it first launched. In 2012, Mah fired all of her staff and started over. But by 2015, she was on the cover of Inc. for skillfully rebuilding inDinero to over 200 employees with an even better business model. We talk about:
- So who is Jessica Mah? I’m serious. How can we be more like her?
- The steps she took to bounce back the business after clearing house in 2012.
- The advice her immigrant parents are giving her now to help her put life in perspective and make the most of her 20s.
