The Highs and Lows of Startup Life in Silicon Valley

Welcome to The Early Days Podcast - a show about the hustle, excitement, doubts, successes, failures, and the ups and downs of building a business from scratch.

Find us also on:

My name is Marin Gerov and with my co-founder Julian Samarjiev, we interview fellow entrepreneurs about their experience of starting and building businesses. We go behind the scenes and try to unearth what their early first days, weeks, months, and years were like.

Today’s guest is Tracy Osborn. Tracy is the founder of Wedding Lovely — an online wedding planning web app and wedding vendor marketplace. She is also the author of the HelloWebApp and the HelloWebDesign books. Find out more about those on

And if you head over to Kickstarter now you can check out Tracy’s updated version of Hello Web App — version 2 — and become one of the first people to get the ebooks, paperbacks, and exclusive video tutorials that will teach you how to build your first web app.

We had a great chat with Tracy about her experience growing up in Silicon Valley, the influences that shaped her path, and her first tries at entrepreneurship. We explore how she got into programming, her experience with Y Combinator, finding a technical co-founder, getting funding for her startup, and much more.

You can follow Tracy on Twitter or check out her website.
