A Fun Place to Work

Can you have fun at work and be productive at the same time? Blinds.com sure does think so.

Now the entire Blinds.com team can strive to create magic for their customers as they continue their work to be the world’s number one online window coverings store.

Why Valuation Matters

The other day, a client asked why valuation matters. It seems like a lengthy process that is complex and differs in each case. You see, I didn’t respond in an elaborate explanation of the different methods of valuation. Instead, I start off by saying that life is very unpredictable. Have you ever experienced a life-altering
