Coding is needed for an entrepreneur?


This is a question which every wanna be entrepreneur asks.
If I say “yes” I don’t mean that only Computer Science graduates may become a successful entrepreneur.
If I say “no” I don’t want to keep you away from bits and bytes.

You may find various entrepreneurs who don’t know anything about programming but rocking in their field. But, if you know it your life will be easy.

Imagine the situation that a great idea came to your mind, you want it to implement. But you don’t know that how much time will it take to get it realized.
Or, you hired someone to write a code for you, he delivered the code to you. It works fine but you don’t know that how does it work. After some days you realized that some small changes are needed, you have no options but to contact the developer again.What if he is not free? What if he asks for more money?

Knowing coding doesn’t mean that you must be pro in that. When you go to a foreign country, you can survive because you know English. Imagine that you know the basics of the native language of that country, won’t your life be more easier?

This is the same with coding, knowing coding doesn’t mean that you must be pro in that but the basic know-how of binary language is must.

I am sharing an example of one of my friends, he wanted to start a website to help students during the placements.
But, he didn’t know coding. After struggling and bargaining with freelance developers he somehow managed to get a website.
After sometime he realized that he must have used “drop down menu” in his website but he had already paid to the developer. Imagine yourself in his shoes.

I came across a very interesting tutorial to learn how to code. The beauty of this course is that it is specially designed for YOU the entrepreneur.
