5 Down

"There is nothing noble in being superior to others. True nobility is being superior to your former self" ~Hemmingway

5 years ago I took every dollar of my remaining money and started Texting Base. I let my phone get cut off so I could pay the state fees.

I believed in one thing more than the idea...I believed in me.

Since then a few lifetimes have passed. The product currently has more lines of logic than 3x the sentences in the bible. It's a monster.

We haven't been out to the public for 18 full months and I could not be more happy about where we are heading.

This journey is just getting started...

No matter how bad things seem, always believe in yourself. No one can keep you from what you work for if you don't let 'em.
