Today is THE DAY! The Five Nineteen Collective is officially open for business. A few extraordinary people have offered their talent, kind words, + support to get us here. Mr. Willie Kinard, you are an italicizing superhero! Thank you for lending your copy editing talents to the cause. To The Librarian, I am still amazed that you were able to take my thoughts + ideas and formulate them into actual sentences! Much obliged, Librarian, much obliged. Nat, gracias for encouragement and high five on the html hookup. Huge thanks to Ethan for hanging out at 3 a.m. while I agonized over fonts + textures. Your 2 cents made all the difference!
The secret to getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one. - Mark Twain
When it’s time to plan + execute, I am geeked! It brings me joy to help others else accomplish their goals. I excel at it! It’s one of the factors that made me successful in my freelancing career. It’s a completely different story when it comes to doing something for myself… When I decided to start The Collective, it was understood that there would be no room for procrastination. Taking Mark Twain’s advice, we rolled up our sleeves and got to work! It took long hours, liters of caffeine, and lots pixel pushing but we made it. Today we thank you + celebrate the official launch of the Five Nineteen Collective (and our founder’s birthday)!
