I’ve been a fan of SquaredUp since I installed it the first time.. Easy to use, and gives you an amazing and featured Dashboard.
During the last 6 months, SquaredUp has released a Coffee Break series on their youtube channel. I thought I would share this session with you guys, so that you can be inspired and maybe learn something like I have.
