We here at Tomo have been working quite diligently in getting this app out and to the public. With that said, we are proud to announce the start of our kickstarter campaign. We've got some awesome prizes so please give it a look!
This whole project is such a learning experience for us and for me especially as the founder. I'm learning a tremendous amount each day about the product and about it's potential users. As I speak to people, I become more convinced that this product is needed and people could really use a helping hand when it comes to saving money. What's unique about Tomo is that it fosters a sense of community around a shared goal. Even if that goal isn't really yours per-say, you're still invested in someone else's success. When your friend succeeds you succeed figuratively and literally since everyone has saved the same amount of money. I've gotten lots of great feedback and if you're reading this and want your voice heard, please take a few seconds to send me a note. I read everything I get so your voice will be heard.
Lastly, I want to talk about development. Development on the app is coming along and has officially started! I'm super excited about this because it quite literally is a dream come true. I remember when I first got to New York with $40.00 and a dream to make something of myself. Yes, it was literally $40.00 as that was what was left after I bought my plane ticket here. I came to New York for two main reasons. The first was to prove to my family and to myself that I could make it here in the Big Apple. To prove that I was worthy to be called a New Yorker (I was born in New York but grew up in the south) and I wasn't going to leave until I made my mark. The second was because of a lady. Things don't always turn out as we plan, but the moral of this story is to never give up and to go after what you're passionate about. Don't let the flame go out. When I die, I don't want to have left anything on the table. No stones unturned, no idea untried. That's what Tomo represents for me. Join me in this adventure as we move closer to it's reality.
