It was 1:35PM yesterday when I got the email: “New NextChapter Contact Form Submitted!” I figured it was one of my copy editor friends checking the site for errors and misplaced commas. To my surprise, it was an actual potential client! A bankruptcy attorney who found NextChapter online by searching “bankruptcy software” and after perusing the site, requested early access to become part of the beta testing group. I know that sounds like a bunch of Zzz… to many of you. But to me, it was music to my ears!
NextChapter’s new chapter began a couple months ago when I taught myself how to code. From there, things with the company have been moving quickly once again but in a different direction. Sometimes, you have to take a step back in order to move forward.
So today, a week after our soft launch…
I’m happy to announce the relaunch of the NextChapter website!
I built the site using Ruby on Rails 3.2 and customizing a Bootstrap theme using HTML/CSS. I couldn’t have done it without my friends at JetCode.They were a huge help when I was stuck on a problem and always there to push me along. I’m also happy that Adam has decided to become the lead software developer for NextChapter and that he was there to put together pieces of the site that I wasn’t sure how to do.
The video on the site was filmed and produced by Benji Robinson. He is building his video production startup here in Columbus and taking clients now. For any filming inquiries, he can be reached via email here.
Now that the site is launched, team is built, advisors are on board, company is incorporated, and legal documents are coming to a close, I’m looking forward to getting the application to our beta group for testing!
As always, thank you for your continued support and encouragement.
