"After traveling to 75 countries I become frustrated with how much of a pain it was to figure out what to do when arriving in a new place. There are great tools for flights and hotels but the process of figuring out what to do was time consuming and outdated. I was wasting a lot of time figuring this out for myself so I decided to solve this for myself and create the app I always wanted. - Konrad Waliszewski (@gokonrad) is the founder and CEO of TripScout (@tripscoutapp) a mobile app that allows you to have local and authentic self-guided city tours. Its local guides curate a list of sites and provide engaging audio guides on an offline map with GPS  so you can navigate around the city without using your data or international roaming plan. Users can customize their map by adding additional points of interest like restaurant recommendations from friends.  Each purchase benefits local causes around the world. "Its our mission to leverage our travels and business to make the world a better place." - Q: Konrad was there some advice you received that influenced your entrepreneurial journey? A: My father was one of the leaders of the Solidarity revolution that overthrew communism in Poland. He would tell me how in America I didn't have any excuses for creating the life and work I wanted. In order to pursue their dream they had to topple the Soviet Union - a seemingly impossible task at the time. But me I just had to do it. No one else was controlling my life so therefore any and all limitations were self-imposed. This inspired me to take responsibility and work hard to create the life and work I wanted.  Q: Do you have a piece of advice to give other entrepreneurs? A: Simply focus on how you can add value to others. This perspective applies to every interaction with customers partners and employees. If you do that things usually have a way of working out. by cereal_entrepreneur Local Guides, A Piece Of Advice, Flight And Hotel, Communism, Gps Navigation, Soviet Union, Us Travel, Mobile App, Poland
