After Ben Marks visited the Atlanta Magento Meetup my client was re-invigorated to get his website launched. He had been trying to get Magento 1 CE launched for 2 years, but his freelancers were not able to pull all of the pieces together. Serendipitous, I sat beside him at this event. After some research, I assured him I could get his site from where it was to fully launched within 20 hours, and train him to self manage all of his content.
We did it! He launched back in the Summer of 2017 and has been receiving a few orders. Many months later, he keeps us on retainer to continue to train him how to use his system and enhance the site as he moves along. We are nearing a complete relaunch of the site with Shipper HQ, Amasty Payment / Shipping for Customer Groups, and lots of Magento Configurable products for his apparel products.
