Economic Engine

I've always pictured the economy as an engine, possibly because most of the men in the Yates family are mechanics. If the economy is an engine, then money is the gasoline.  An engine requires more than gas to run, though.  Our economic engine requires air in the form of reasonable regulations and laws to encourage commerce and fair transactions.  Companies form the pistons of the engine while economic development/business support agencies lubricate the motor.  What's missing?  The spark!  Entrepreneurs, engineers, scientists, business leaders and universities are the engine's spark plugs, and no power is generated without them.

Forward View is focused on adding fire to the economy's spark plugs!  Managing your company's fuel (money) is key to future business success, and we work hard to keep every piston moving and producing power.  We look forward to kicking your organization into a higher gear!

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.
