You used to work with a friend, maybe in a basement somewhere. You had fun. You never gave a lot of thought to your workflow, your payroll, your phone lines, or any other of the hundreds of little things involved in a business. But then you got a couple of clients or customers, then a few more, then before you knew it your two-man operation in a basement is twenty-five people in six thousand square feet of office space. Can you still work the way you used to? Can you still have fun? Do you have to start writing inter-office memos? Are you going through these problems right now and you don't know what to do? Or do you have all the magic answers you want to share? Come talk with a couple of guys who have been there. Eric Smith is the President and CTO of UnWired Nation, a startup that has gone well beyond the startup stage. Allen Mendelsohn is the VP of Plank, a web design agency that went from a couple of people just two years ago to an always-increasing number of designers, programmers, integrators and managers. We've lived through the growing pains, but we're also still suffering them. Let's talk about some of our solutions, and hopefully we can all put our heads together and figure out how we can all grow up.
