THE FOUNDER’S STORY: When and how did you come up with the idea for the business?:
I came up with the idea right after I turned my freelancing business into a full fledge agency. It was after having to sift through so many lists to find resources and products I needed to help take my business to the next level. I was extremely frustrated at how much of my time it took to find the right tools.

LESSONS TO SHARE: What 3 key lessons from your startup journey you’d like to share with aspiring entrepreneurs?:
Wow, hard to pick just three. But here are some:
1. The beginning is rocky, lean into it.
2. Seek help from experienced advisors, even if the mentor is a book.
