Episode 73-Get reminded of your upcoming bills

Episode 73-Get reminded of your upcoming bills


There’s actually something much worse than receiving bills – it’s forgetting about them. It’s not a problem if you already budgeted for them or if you still manage to pay on time, but if you don’t, you get penalised which costs more money. This is why my guest, the founder of GetReminded, Tim Nicholas, sought to help people like you and me remember any upcoming bill. Tim shares his personal experiences that inspired him and his partners to launch GetReminded. He explains how the app works, who it’s for, and how clients can avail of it. Tim also discusses the unique challenges involved in setting up and growing a start-up app.
