From Lawyer to Entrepreneur with Christine Ziebell
Christine Ziebell took the risk of leaving a known career as an attorney to start something of her own. In her journey of entrepreneurship she went from being a lawyer at a law firm to starting her own law firm. This gave her a glimpse into the world of entrepreneurship. From there she decided to take the leap to become a tech founder and start Intraboom. Through Intraboom she is helping entrepreneurs and business owners build remote teams through better communication tools, digital workplaces, and systems for better productivity. Their platform is helping businesses embrace the co-working and remote working in new ways. In the episode we chat about women in tech, co-working and digital workplaces, building company culture with remote workers, systems for entrepreneurs and business owners, using simplicity for success, and creating something from nothing.

Christine Ziebell is the founder of Intraboom. When designing Intraboom, Christine did something different. She didn't talk to engineers. She only talked to end-users to find out what they wanted in a system like Intraboom to do. In fact, there were exactly zero engineers and developers involved in designing Intraboom right up until the day we started coding. It's so SIMPLE because it was designed by normal people.
But simplicity is just one of the strengths of Intraboom. Another strength came a bit later. They realized that the world was changing, and that people (especially millennials) were starting to work more and more on their mobile phones. They wanted to get more done using their phones - not just monitor emails (while browsing through Instagram and Snapchat). So Intraboom built a similar experience. Just scroll down your feed, and you are up to speed.
They are the simple most user-friendly digital workplace for teamwork and projects out there. An all-in-one system that with zero configuration and no learning curve, that allows you to work anytime, anywhere, on your computer or on your phone.
Intraboom is headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona. Their team is a group of highly motivated an committed individuals, who will stop at nothing to provide the best possible service and to see their customers succeed.
