Finding Joy Every Day

Joanna McFarland – Founder and CEO of HopSkipDrive Doesn’t Take ‘No’ for an Answer

Joanna McFarland on She's Got Moxie with Joy Chudacoff

You’re supposed to be picking up one kid at soccer and taking another to karate, and you have a business meeting at the same time.

My guest today is Joanna McFarland, CEO and Co-founder of HopSkipDrive – a ride sharing service for busy families to help get their kids where they need to be.

On today’s show, Joanna talks about how she dealt with getting hundreds of no’s in the startup process. She talks about HopSkipDrive’s business beginnings, how she and her partners decided to come up with a ride sharing app in the first place, how she overcomes challenges, and a whole lot more.

I think you'll find this episode super inspiring!
