I've been self-employed or an independent contractor for all of my adult life. I've been an entrepreneur since I was just a kid. Now I'm pulling all that experience from various fields together to develop a new software product that will become the leading edge CRM solution for small businesses and individual salespeople. Why? Because the software that currently exists is cumbersome, difficult to learn and to use, and it doesn't do a whole lot for the user. My software will be something unique in the world of CRM - actually, in the entire field of software!
