Dear readers,

I’ve spent the last twenty years working on behalf of small companies in the resource sector, helping them raise money, helping them build their identities, and especially helping them get their stories in front of investor looking for quality investments.

In the process of doing that, I’ve seen some companies grow into multi-billion dollar enterprises over a few short years, and I’ve watched others burn through their Investors’ hard earned dollars like a Texas Tornado and leave nothing in their wake but heart-ache and misery.

Over time, I’ve developed the ability to recognize the key characteristics of companies that are going to go the distance, versus, those that are going crash and burn.
