Sponsoring this project allowed for focused energy around a "nagging" theme. Having the capacity for Rachael and Won to direct traffic on this project proved highly valuable. Hands down, it fully exceeded my expectations. Both Rachael and Won were dedicated, focused, and actively involved in the entire project.
