With 2007 already shifting into high gear, there doesn’t seem to be any time for taking a breath and stepping back to look at the forest instead of the trees. Our goal has always been to bring to you practical information and perspective about the business of valuation.

A development that is likely to draw more and more attention is the idea of a “paper-less practice”. Read about – and learn from – one practitioner who’s already taken the leap. Is there a gender bias in the valuation industry? Read what three women have to say. Check out our tips on avoiding hiring pitfalls. As promised, we bring you the second installment on selling from a consultative point of view.

Our commitment is that you get more out of this newsletter than the time you put into it. We welcome your comments and suggestions for information that would be useful in your practice.
