In the early days, he/she showed single-mindedness and great perseverance, always intent on getting more sales, this to pay the bills and grow the enterprise. Now proud of a small, independent business, born out of blood, sweat and tears and having achieved success, he/she is now looking to take it to the next level or seeking an exit strategy and/or transition to the next generation.
  • Litigation – Mtre Gold says, “Just like with news media, the first step is to get the facts. And then, one needs to follow that up with good preparation, this to make your case as solid and complete as possible.”
