Carla White is a designer, writer and business-MacGyver whose apps have been featured by Apple, USA Today, NPR, Oprah, Successful Living Magazine and many other major publications across the globe. She launched her first app, Gratitude Journal, in 2008 and it instantly shot up to #1 and was hailed in major news publications around the world—all on a meager $500 budget. Carla has created a successful formula to bring app ideas to market faster and to take iTunes by storm—all without breaking the bank.
Born to a farmer and a photographer, Carla inherited her dad’s work ethics and resourcefulness and her mom’s artistic eye. She was also born with an insatiable curiosity, which earned her an alphabet soup of degrees, but more importantly provoked her to travel solo coast to coast in a beat up Chevy (twice). She lived in California to learn how to surf (and failed) and Colorado to learn how to snowboard (and loved it). She got her first “big girl” job working for the Pentagon was also a translator for the 1996 Olympics. She’s since ventured to all corners of the globe, and lived in Europe for over ten years, and speaks multiple languages. Her life recently has come full circle and she now resides back in her home state of South Dakota with her husband, son, and dog. When Carla isn’t having adventures with her family, she enjoys yoga, running, and throwing a mean dinner party.
Today Carla runs her app agency Happy Tapper, creator of the apps Gratitude Journal, Vision Board, and Little Buddha, where she offers consulting as well as design services. Carla is on a mission to show everyone how to find happiness through gratitude and giving back as well as motivating women to succeed.
