Curious to know people’s planning systems. I’m a paper planner at heart, but in this practice, there’s so many tasks and sub tasks for each client matter and each task may be in various points of completion (to do, waiting on, in process, etc.). I’ve toyed with excel sheets, word docs, paper planning, Trello, Notion, etc. and nothing seems to ‘stick.’ Thank you!

Collecting data on a potential entrepreneurship idea for a marketing CRM of sorts. What I have found is that most ppl in marketing do not have a specific tool that they use in order to coordinate and connect with marketing agencies. For ex. I was working on a webinar and needed to work with a few diff agencies to draft up creative and copy assets. Everything was done via email/docs. Would have been nice to have a CRM to organize and bring transparency to coordinate the project. How about you?
