Thanks for taking the time, Chase! As a freelancer myself, much of your workflow makes a lot of organized sense to me. I think it flows well for anyone who tends to work multiple large projects at one time. I’m very interested in seeing how it plays out for you over time.
I wonder how easily this model could be adapted to use Google Docs folders. The tight email/task integration isn’t there, but it could be combined with something like Producteev.
