Happy Birthday!

Happy third birthday to... Forward View! That's right, we've been in business for a trio of years. As always, we recognize that we're blessed to work with our wonderful clientele. It's an honor to serve each and every organization that has entrusted us with a project, and we take this responsibility very seriously. Our philosophy: “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up” (Galatians 6:9 NIV).

Speaking of clients, we're excited to welcome Wealthbridge Financial Advisors to the Forward View family. The initial discussion with this phenomenal firm actually began on Twitter. (We mention the method of connection to reinforce the importance of social media engagement!) Forward View looks forward to a long-term relationship with Wealthbridge.

Our research was in the news once again in September. We don't just read the news, we contribute our analyses to journalists across the globe. In September, we were cited in two articles about the acquisition of Cabela's by Bass Pro Shops:

Thank you for reading our newsletter and for supporting Forward View during our first three years of business!

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.
