One of the most admirable traits of Whitney Wolfe is that when she sees something she wants, she will go for it. She is someone who makes up her mind and pursues the goals she has set. The best thing about her is that she does not let people talk her out of anything she believes in. However, she does put every suggestion that is made to her into consideration. One example was when she was planning her next business. She has originally wanted to create a social network that is for women to make friends with one another and be positive to each other. Andrey Andreev has convinced her to start another dating app.
Whitney Wolfe was reluctant to start Bumble her dating app. For one thing, she did not see how it was going to empower women. One night, she was thinking about a rule in dating that she has heard before. The rule she has heard is that women should not make the first move. Once that thought came into her mind, Whitney Wolfe has thought about putting together a dating app that makes it easier for women to make the first move and find the type of dating partner they want. As a result, Bumble was created.
Whitney Wolfe has shown that it is good to be authentic. At the same time, it is good to be authentic and to give certain ideas and suggestions a thought. It is not just because Andrev has suggested it to her. It is ultimately because Whitney Wolfe has believed in what she was doing. If Whitney didn’t believe in the dating app idea, she wouldn’t have gone through with it. However, Bumble wasn’t just a dating app. It has grown to be a full social media platform for different purposes.
