    @YouTooCanBeGuru I don’t like using #Bridgetable because you’re getting better all the time! It sounds too self-deprecating to me. Like @VeriousSmithIII said you’re awesome!

    Look at Rainmaker. I feel like when we get the full REST API, then WordPress SaaS with white labelled interfaces is the next wave of ease for small biz
