Tech Founder at LFMore.comNovember 2009 - June 2010
In early 2010 I embarked on a solo journey to spec, design, build, and market a fully-fledged SaaS application all by myself. As an avid MMO player for many years I saw a very serious problem in the way people played MMO games. Most players would wait for hours sitting around at their computer gathering other players to group up with in order to achieve specific goals. This problem could be solved by planning ahead using a public website where people could create and manage groups. By planning ahead a leader could have a group all ready to go, or at least in better shape, at a pre-determined time instead of waiting forever. This was the most basic problem I hoped to solve with LFMore.com.
