Decided to solve my own problem

Micheil Cathcart @Babaschweel

I came up with the idea for Checklist King while running a cleaning business with a friend. It was always tricky getting everything done correctly each time, especially when the customers requirements were so dynamic.

Coming from a programmer background, I decided to build it myself, as nothing else on the market at the time quite fit what I was looking for.

The lesson for me here is that building out an app takes a considerable amount of time. It was not my first rodeo, but I definitely underestimated how much juggling with my full time job and regular life it would take to wrap this baby up.
