Q&A With Learn To Live CEO Dale Cook

Categories

Learn to Live was started in 2012 by Dale Cook and Dr. Russ Morfitt to offer online Cognitive Behavioral Therapy “CBT” programs for Stress, Social Anxiety, Insomnia and Depression.

Over the past five years, the company has taken off due to their entrepreneurial capacity and market timing.

Most recently, Learn To Live closed on $4.5m in new capital to “accelerate growth” as CEO Dale Cook describes below in our deep dive Q&A:

Are you having fun yet?

(Laughing) That’s a resounding yes! It’s been a tremendous amount of fun to start and grow this company. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done professionally…but also the most rewarding. And that’s because of what we do – support people who have mental health problems. The social value we provide is incredibly gratifying. I am having fun with that, but working hard, it’s terrific.

How long have you been working in tech for and what is your technical background?

When I started my college career, I wanted to be an accountant until I started taking accounting classes and quickly realized that was not the path for me. I then turned my attention to business management and computer science.

I enjoyed the programming classes a great deal and completed my degree in Management Information Systems at Iowa State in 1998. I joined Cerner Corporation as a software engineer after graduation which is where my professional career began. I have been in healthcare information technology ever since.

What are you focused on right now?

Thanks to Fueled Collective for underwriting our How I Work series!

 
What one word best describes how you work?

Purposefully.

What is your current device/hardware/office setup?

I’m a very confused technology user. I became a Mac/Apple gal in college and then married a PC user who has been slowly trying to bring me to what he refers to as “the light.”

I’ve made a slow transition to a Google Pixel…and my two co-founders are PC/Microsoft guys. I don’t think I can go back to Microsoft after OS/X on my computer, though.

What apps/software/tools can’t you live without?
