Hi! We are Naomi Hirabayashi and Marah Lidey. We are entrepreneurs who cofounded Shine Text, a cool daily text experience to help you be your best self at work and life.
How it works is that each morning, Shine Text sends you actionable tips and content around confidence, daily happiness, mental health, or productivity.
We were inspired to start the company when we were colleagues at work. Leaning on each other for support, we became aware that our feelings of not being qualified for our successes stemmed from false beliefs about ourselves.
We realized so many people struggle with the same feelings, yet we often feel like we're the only ones. Through Shine, we want to scale the support we gave each other to as many people as possible to elevate important conversations around living intentionally and being your best self.
