About Travis Rowland

I am a technology evangelist. Check out my LinkedIn: <a href="" target="_blank"></a> Travis Rowland is a self-taught software entrepreneur that is familiar with failure. The ideas are constant and he often finds similar ideas being executed by others on or around the same time he begins to pursue them. The biggest challenge for Travis is being solo, there have been very few times others have had the willingness to join him in his ventures because his ideas are grand and require an enormous amount of work; nonetheless, Travis does not give up heading toward his dreams. When Travis fails he gets up and tries again. Travis is currently looking for investors and networking contacts so he can achieve his dream of an internet SAAS (Software as a Service) creative firm; a firm that develops low-cost solutions that both improve people's day-to-day lives and similarly help others to meet their personal, financial and business goals.
