I respect people that can admit when they made a mistake. You're probably right 90% of the time, but for the other 10%, be an adult, say you're wrong, and fix it.
My advice, whenever a problem pops up, start in the mirror, and work out from there. Recently, I knew that two of my

First let me tell you the back story….
One of our clients was evaluating P2xRM and
Also around that time, another company selected P2xRM because of their unique subscription model. Dynamics 365 was full of features they would never need, yet still would have required extensive customization, making it completely out of their budget.
