Key Takeaways

AI & Automation

AI is transforming how we create solutions.

Artificial intelligence (AI) has become a significant force in our lives, particularly through our mobile devices. AI can predict our routes and provide traffic information, making it a useful tool for automation and more. 

Representing one specific type of AI, ChatGPT has gained popularity because of its ability to generate content. However, there has been a backlash due to concerns about copyright infringement.

Despite this, companies like InspiringApps are finding ways to integrate generative AI capabilities into products, creating more targeted solutions for consumers.

We need to approach AI implementation thoughtfully.

Overall, AI presents both opportunities and challenges for businesses, and it’s crucial to approach its implementation thoughtfully.

While some see potential benefits, others worry about job security. For example, starting out as a copywriter in this space may be challenging, as entry-level positions could be affected. 

Large companies initially reacted with fear to ChatGPT, but now they are seeking guidance to understand the technology better and implement best practices within their organizations.

Building an Inspiring Business

Complex business challenges are no match for inspirational leadership.

In his chapter of the new book, Brad discusses the challenges and importance of growing a successful company and cultivating a winning culture. He emphasizes the need for a strong team and a solid organizational structure.

The concept of “team” is crucial to Brad. He has found that having a cohesive leadership team and solid continuity across all roles in the organization is essential. InspiringApps invests in meeting its team’s needs and involving everyone in decision-making, making it a great place to work and keeping turnover low.

Brad also addresses the idea of creating cool stuff for clients versus building a real business. He shares a personal story about being “slapped with a backhanded compliment.” In this experience, Brad came to realize the need for long-term sustainability and formalizing roles for success.

InspiringApps is as nimble as a startup but as mature as an enterprise when it comes to app development capabilities. As the company continues to grow, the team recognizes the importance of understanding its strengths and bringing value to clients, whether they are startups or large enterprises.

Entrepreneurship & App Development

“Despite having many business degrees, I’ve made many business mistakes.”

BRAD WEBER, CEO | INSPIRINGAPPS, BOULDER CO

Brad shares his experiences and mistakes, hoping that others can learn from them. He believes that learning from both “triumphs and goofs” is valuable.

  • Growing a company is fraught with risk.
  • Cultivating a winning culture requires an employee-based team.
  • A flat org structure will only take you so far.
  • Create cool stuff for clients or build a real business.
