Have you heard about the “no code” movement?
It's about using powerful software tools to make all sorts of other software without being a coder. This empowers creative people to make things that were once impossible without knowing how to code or hiring a developer.
Before we sold off our website software business lines, “no code” was always one of the benefits we sought to deliver. As a non-technical founder myself, I wanted to empower non-technical writers and other content creators to do more with their websites without code.
Now, things have opened up even wider into actual product development. That means a new generation of entrepreneurs are able to create powerful 7-Figure Small businesses that sell software and software-based services without investors and even employees.
Listen in to hear more about what “no code” can mean for your business. If you’re able to solve an audience problem with a software solution, you could be on your way to creating a product you never imagined you could on your own.
Down below, Kat delivers selections from around the web, including budgeting tips for solopreneurs, taxes for freelancers, the power of personal networks for digital business, what “thought leadership” really means, and more.
