I don't know the 'best' strategy to take in creating an FMP database for my cleaning / maintenance business.
Background: Over fiftteen years I've built my business into forty or so clients, mainly homes and a few small offices. Inspired by the successful implementation in the 1960s, and beyond, of the South Koreans to "Work smarter, not harder" I decided to create a FMP database focused on being knowledgeable in helping my clients maintain all aspects of their homes.
The Problem: I'm not sure if I should attempt to build an FMP 'solution' myself, given the complexity of such a task, or purchase something created by one of you and incur the up front and probably on-going costs.
My skill set: If Mark Osborne skills are 10 then mine are 2. I put in a lot of time several years ago and things fell apart once I got into creating relations between files/databases.
So following the Korean motto to 'work hard at working smarter' a light went on that said:
John.... before you invest 100's of hours on creating a FMP solution for your clients (something at which I might fail) you should ask this knowledgeable community of FMP developers: What, in your opinion, is 'the best' strategy and based on your replies the 'best' tactics will be, if not obvious, at least clearer.
