The following quote has been our guiding principle:
"One piece advice I would give to people just starting up that I wish knew is that success is less about the idea and more execution. Don’t wait until you have the great idea or have refined all the plans, just get something up and start iterating." - Ben Hatten
Knowing nothing about web design or development, it has been a challenging process to facilitate discussions and lead a team to reach milestone. Hours of brainstorming sessions on key requirements, mock-ups on whiteboards, creating specific feedback through Powerpoint illustrations, to a final implementation on a live site - and this is just the beginning! (Having team members in different cities forced us to be creative in our communication efforts).
A victory-dance is in order for Team SoJo. We pushed hard to make it this far and are excited about the possibilities moving forward. We hope you stick around for the ride!
Invites will be rolled out to closed Beta testers in stages over the next week. We will be Beta testing the site throughout the Summer, so if you have not yet signed up, you can do so here and preview a work-of-art in the making. Big thanks to those who supported us and shared feedback to achieve this milestone.
