Heather Payne, founder of Ladies Learning Code and HackerYou, proves you really can do whatever you want when you grow up, as long as you aren't afraid to take risks, do something completely new and really put your heart and soul into it.

Long description: 

I learned about Heather Payne after I took one of her Ladies Learning Code classes, and man is she one inspirational lady! She's one of the youngest female entrepreneurs I know, having founded both Ladies Learning Code and HackerYou in her 20s. If that's not impressive enough, she's also an angel investor and was named one of Canada's 100 Most Powerful Women. The fact that she's so down to Earth is pretty baffling, but she is. She's pretty much the whole package!

For this episode, we chat about how Heather took her idea of maybe one day being her own boss to full on turning her side hustle into her full-time hustle. I think this is something a lot of us can relate to, so it's very cool to hear from someone who has successfully made the jump from 9-5 with a second job on the side to successful entrepreneur in only a matter of a few years.

It just goes to show the power of actually taking action. I'm sure we all have ideas we'd love to realize, but most of us never do anything about them do we? We shouldn't be afraid to try new things and take risks, and I have a feeling I'm going to be taking a page out of Heather's guidebook very soon.

What Is Ladies Learning Code?

I seriously upgraded my coding skills by doing the Ladies Learning Code night classes, and it's a big reason I wanted to chat with Heather for this podcast. Coding was literally a foreign language to me, and the thought of being taught about it with a bunch of advanced coders terrified me. But Ladies Learning Code is a super non-threatening program that really breaks it down into something digestible. Honestly, without learning the basic HTML and CSS skills I learned in the program, there is no way I could have make rebranded my website into what it is today. So check it out, there are courses throughout Canada!
