I'm having this difficult-to-describe pain with managing my life. I've tried GTD tools such as Trello and Todoist, and at our company we have a CRM (HubSpot).
All these tools are great at what they do, but I feel like they always leave gaps. GTD tools lack an awareness of the relationships in my life, making it difficult to get the context I need. And I don't want to put all my personal relationships in our company CRM.

Everyone runs a business. If you're an employee, that business is yourself. Interviewing was sales. Your salary is your pricing. You only have one customer, and the service you're selling may be generic enough for you to have millions of competitors. But you're still a business.
I think this is becoming more true every day. And personal life and work start to blend, especially for entrepreneurs.
I have conversations with friends in a plethora of ways, such as Slack (many groups), phone, SMS, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Facebook, forums, etc.
In an ideal world, there would be an app/a system that tied them all together and knew what happened where and what conversations I had with whom. And kept all my contacts in sync, and all my todos and resources were related to the right people, calendar events, etc.
Have you solved this problem? Or do you know someone who has? I would pay for such a service.
