Carla White launched her first app, Gratitude Journal, in 2008 and her life changed forever when it instantly shot up to #1 and was hailed in major news publications around the world—all on a meager $500 budget. She created a successful formula to bring app ideas to market faster and to take iTunes by storm—all without breaking the bank.
Today Carla runs her app agency Happy Tapper, where she creates life changing apps as well as offers consulting and design services. She is on a mission to show everyone how to find happiness through gratitude and giving back as well as motivating women to succeed.
