ONTrac Hits Major Milestones
Updated: Sep 16, 2020
How effective of a "goal app" company would we be if we didn't have our own SMART goals? Not very. Well, the good news is we definitely have SMART goals as a company, and I'm truly excited to share that we have hit two major ones this month.
Launches on App Store for Pre-order
The first goal that we hit earlier this month was launching ONTrac on the app store for pre-order. More than that, the bigger meaning behind this launch is that we completed the beta version or minimal viable product (MVP) version of ONTrac. Though it's only been a few days, we've already started to get some early pre-orders for the product. If you're interested in pre-ordering ONTrac, you can do so by clicking the Apple App Store pre-order badge below.
Adding Diverse Co-Founders
At the heart of any company are its people. The "seeds" of any startups are its co-founders. If your co-founders do not reflect the passion, principles, and vision of the company that you're trying to build, then the people that they eventually hire are unlikely to as well so it is crucial to get the co-founders of a new company right for the company to succeed. The right people create the right culture, and the right culture creates powerful brands. We are pleased to announce that we have finalized our founding team, and we feel strongly that we have the right skills, passion, and vision to achieve our mission of helping people live happier, more balanced lives by simplifying the process of achieving their life goals.
