Steve Young was born in Myanmar (Burma) and moved to the Bay Area at the age up 6. In elementary school, he sold cassette tapes to my classmates, an experience which would begin his entrepreneurial journey

Throughout his corporate career, he continued to pursue side hustles. In 2011, he learned how to code in Corona and his first app hit #8 in educational games. Though he was making a few hundred dollars a month, he had no idea what to do next

In 2013 Steve started the App Masters Podcast, allowing him to network with and pick the brains of the top people in the app industry, a decision that changed everything for him and set him on the path for success

Today Steve’s app PR agency, Runway.bz, helps clients to get featured by Apple and maximize their exposure and results. Steve stopped by episode 16 to talk about app marketing, entrepreneurship and finding your unique path to success

Steve Young

Founder at AppMasters
I started building apps in 2011 and my first app hit #8 under educational games. I started making a few hundred dollars a month, but had no idea what I was doing. Then in 2013 I decided to start a podcast so I could pick the brains of app creators that I admired including the co-founder of Shazam, Tapbots, Crossy Road, etc and that changed everything.

Now I run an app marketing agency where we’ve helped 8 clients get featured by Apple, 5X downloads with ASO, and get coverage on Techcrunch, Mashable, Venture Beat and other major publications. I also write about apps on The Next Web, Entrepreneur.com, and on my blog AppMasters.co.
