Object Detection Error w/ 6 lines of code, pls help!

Mr. Olefenwa,
I have followed the steps listed in your article “Object Detection with 6 lines of Code” and continue to get the following error: TypeError: object of type ‘NoneType’ has no len()
I am using custom objects (250 pictures in total) and am running the code through MacOsx terminal
When trying to run the code through google collab as you suggested the code did not compile at the last step so that is why I am using terminal, also successfully ran “Object Detection with 10 lines of code” through this platform.
Thank you so much,
