March News

In March, we initiated the next stage of our growth on the research side of the business. We officially launched the Sporting Goods Monitor research product, and we're pleased to announce that our distribution system has been upgraded with new technology from Harvest. We're one of the first research firms anywhere on Earth to publish research through the incredible Harvest platform, so we're also offering anybody a free three-week trial of the Sporting Goods Monitor. Our initiation report on Big 5 Sporting Goods was just published, and we're finishing up our analysis of Dick's Sporting Goods! On the consulting side of Forward View, we've completed the new website and logo design for Assistive Technology for Education. It's an utterly beautiful website if we do say so ourselves, and team member Jamie Brown truly outdid herself. In addition, the new Town of Clintwood website will be live any day now. You're going to love our take on the digital representation of Small Town USA. Our founder's photos are prevalent on the town's website, too. The Facebook page we created for Clintwood offers a preview of the town website:

Speaking of Facebook, Forward View now has our own company Facebook page: Hurry up and like us for small business insights, stock market commentary and news from Forward View! We promise to never post cat videos, though. Seriously, we have nothing against cats but find the cat video industry too competitive for our efforts to thrive.

Happy April to you!

Nathan Yates

Nathan Yates has been fascinated by technology and finance since he was young. He was the kid devouring the business section of the newspaper (remember those?) while others read everything else. Nathan believes that the American economy is built from the bottom-up, meaning that small businesses and local nonprofits are the foundation of our nation's success. These organizations are the lifeblood of towns and cities across the U.S. Unfortunately, most consulting firms overlook companies or organizations that don't have eight-figure budgets. Nathan thought Forward View Consulting should be different. And we are. As Lead Consultant, Nathan works with each client to deliver only the best financial and/or website development services. Nathan's years of web design experience and his business degrees ensure that professional expertise is brought to each project. Our network of contacts can offer additional specialized guidance if needed. Before creating Forward View Consulting, Nathan worked for an independent equity research firm as a Research Associate covering the industrial and energy sectors. This work involved preparing quarterly 15-40 page reports on multi-billion dollar corporations along with timely analysis of M&A activity and industry-wide news. He also managed research distribution and the company's online presence. Nathan also spent a summer serving as a local financial adviser's Research Intern. Nathan earned a Bachelor's degree in Economics and Finance from Southern New Hampshire University, graduating summa cum laude. He then earned a Master's degree in Finance from Southern New Hampshire University, where he was named the Outstanding Student in his particular concentration. Now, Nathan is an adjunct professor teaching economics and finance for his alma mater. In his spare time, Nathan enjoys fishing, reading, time with family and serving as a volunteer webmaster for the Clintwood United Methodist Church.
