Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Donna Smith Fee, Director of Partnerships at Learnie, located in Salt Lake, UT, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

We are a microlearning app on both mobile and desktop. Our customers are anyone who learns better in bite-size offerings and in a mobile environment.

Tell us about yourself

I was a terrible student and will never divulge my GPA. Learning in a microlearning setting removes all of my barriers to learning, and I am committed to sharing that with others so they can achieve it as well.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I grew a successful real estate business in the heart of the recession. It's all about authenticity and relationships.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

It can be lonely as you are often working long after others have gone to sleep or left on vacation. :)

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Know who you are. It's not about the "Big Why" but rather who you are and believing you can do it.
  2. Start slow and don't overspend.
  3. Celebrate the tiny victories as well as the big ones!

Where can people find you and your business?
