Shutting down

Scott Ramsay @scottramsay

I've decided that I'm going to drop this project. It was alot of work, but sadly I've more passion in more recent projects and don't see me personally being able to scale it much more with the limited time I have.

Sometimes it's okay to drop projects so it gives focus on others!

It'll be archived in my graveyard of failed projects. You live and take these learnings forward to new!

    Hey Scott - I’m interested in the product/space (no pun intended). Happy to discuss options if you’re looking to get the product off your portfolio. Let’s chat.
