I think too many of us go into businesses on a wing and a prayer. I believe you can model any business. I may be wrong, but that’s what I believe. Typically I start with the industry data, cut it up year by year, segment by segment, focus on the basic industry you are in. Look at what ecological and other social changes that impact that industry. Where will they take it?— Patrick Quarcoo
