In his book, Outliers: The Story of Success, Malcolm Gladwell frequently mentions the “10,000-Hour Rule,” which asserts that the key to success in any field is having performed a specific task for over 10,000 hours. Many professionals who offer business valuation services, do it on a part-time basis. We are full-time business appraisers and 5 of our 8 professional staff members have in excess of 10,000 hours of business valuation experience. Our team draws from experience and knowledge gained in over 2,500 valuations of closely-held businesses, pass-through entities, professional practices, and intangible assets to provide independent, unbiased determinations of value that are based on objective, well-documented information and analysis.
