1- Hello Cody, can you tell us a bit about yourself
I didn’t come from the traditional IT and programming background that most app developers come from. My background is Law and Business and that has been my primary career. I came into app development out of a passion that I have to help people learn more effectively, quicker, and with less effort. I do not believe that learning should be drudgery. There are many ways to learn very complex concepts and information that can be fun and engaging.

2- How would you describe “LearnLikeABoss” in under few words?
The vision and mission of LearnLikeABoss is to use the gamification of learning to help app users and learners of all types to be able to assimilate knowledge in ways that are fun and entertaining.

3- What are your focus areas and why?
My personal focus and consequently that of LearnLikeABoss is gamification. Like many CEOs, I get excited about what we are doing in the company. Our team of developers, our staff, and marketers, really everybody that works for our company are a family. We are people-focused both inside the company and outside since our goal is “people development” as much as it is app development. We want to help people be better and more knowledgeable individuals.

4- How do you differentiate yourselves from your competitors?
No other competitor really does things quite the way that we do. We are focused on using gamification trivia apps to deliver knowledge content. We are exploring many different avenues of gamification and some exciting projects currently in development, but most of our current app offerings are gamification trivia apps.

5- Where do you think “LearnLikeABoss” is making an impact?
We have over 100 apps currently offered between the Google Play store and the iTunes app store. We are targeting a wide variety of high-demand and problematic learning areas. Information and areas of learning that generally cause people difficulty. For example, we have training apps for SAT and ACT and many other standardized tests that people have to take for college and graduate school entrance.

6- What are some things that most people don’t know about your job?
We spend over 250 team man-hours just on content development for each of our apps and over 500 team man-hours on coding and working on the app architecture. We invest an enormous amount of time on concept development because we know that it will greatly impact the quality of our end-user experience. We want to maximize how much they learn and grow intellectually.

7- The learning world is very changing, where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
We have quite a few very large app projects in the works that, we believe, will make our company a major player in the gamification market over the next 2 years. We are planning big and have brought some very talented people on board in order to accomplish what we are envisioning.

8- And what were some of the biggest challenges you encountered personally?
One of the greatest hurdles that a CEO must accomplish is a synthesis or bringing it all together and seeing the big picture as well as making sure that all of the parts and personnel are working in synergy toward those overarching goals that only you as the leader have the perspective to see. It is not that they can’t see them, they just do not see them because they are focusing on their aspect of the organization. You have to make them aware and share the overall vision and inform employees about how it all fits together.

9- What are you most excited about at the moment?
We just finished publishing and launching our 100th app and we have about 30 more apps under development currently with a handful of others in the early planning and conceptualization stages. Every time we launch a new app, it is like a party for the development team. There are lots of high-fives and congratulations and we sit down and get started on the next app in the queue.

10- A last Word or final thoughts?
Launching LearnLikeABoss took longer than expected. It is always difficult when you set deadlines to achieve tasks and they slowly start rolling backward. It is difficult to hit a homerun every time that you are up to the plate. So, we learned to enjoy the singles and the walks in the process. Home runs might win a game, but the singles get you through a season and a career. Now that 100 apps have been launched, a new process begins. I’m looking forward to it.
