Since we started in November of 2009, dietSNAPS has grown by leaps and bounds each year. We now have over four thousand users and we’ve gone from two partners, Laurie and I, to four partners with the addition of Lexy and Carman. We went from an idea to conception to growth and reaching so many and we have loved hearing from each and every one of you how dietSNAPS has changed your life.
This week, we also changed our tagline: from, “Tracking your diet just became a SNAP!” to “Changing lives one picture at a time!” and we couldn’t be more thrilled. What was a simple tool to help others lose weight and reach their fitness goals has truly become something so much more – something that changes lives! At the heart of it, we all just want to make a difference in this world while we’re on this Earth, and by sharing your stories, your breakdowns and your breakthroughs and each milestone that you reach, you give back to us each and everyday in letting us know that we’re making a difference.
Now, to the future: We have so many wonderful ideas for dietSNAPS. It would be premature to lay it all out in detail, but please know that we have heard what you want and we want to give you that and more. We are currently in production on a fabulous new update AND an Android version (finally!), but our plans and ideas go well beyond the app. When we say more, we mean MORE!
We’ll get there either way, but we’d like to ask you to help us get there a little faster. We’ve thrown our hat into the ring in the Mission: Small Business grant competition being sponsored by Chase and LivingSocial. They will be giving twelve $250,000 grants to small businesses throughout the US and we’d love to be one of those twelve.
The first step is for us to garner 250 votes – and that’s where you come in. We need your vote.
To vote for dietSNAPS, visit https://www.missionsmallbusiness.com/. Once you log in with your Facebook account, you will come to a screen that allows you to search for us. In the “business name” box, enter dietSNAPS (all one word)…no need to enter city or state. Our name will pop up and then click VOTE!
Also, you can vote for as many companies as you’d like, so if you have any other friends competing for the 12 grants, you don’t have to choose – choose both, choose ‘em all!
Thanks for all of your support! We truly couldn’t do this without you!!
