Learning to prioritize things

Once of the biggest challenges I think with this project is figuring out honestly where to start.  A lot of the work in the coming months will be focused solely on flushing out the guts of the application.  There's been so many hands in it over the years and now it's...

It's an absolute pleasure to write this post.  In 2014, we started building out a small business specific CRM called SecretCRM.  It would eventually be renamed to TealCRM.  This was a project that was started at my company Eligeo.  We wanted to create a product...
