First and the foremost thing- "Finally you did it". Well to be honest, like the way you were slogging for the past couple of months, i anticipated this thing coming really soon and voila here it is. Well you really took care of all the aspect of details i.e on clients aspect, market aspect, various business sector aspects (to name some , financial, manufacturing, bio-sciences and supply chain) and you did an intensive study & research of global acceptance of financial organizations like Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs towards "U.S. Energy Trading". This is a new boost for global giants to set themselves to step to the another level of global acquisitions. All the research and information of various kinds and interests are very well scripted n posted. I believe this is one of the milestones that you have achieved and its going to take you places and get you richer dividends. So my good old friend this is just the beginning of a long professional and business journey. Any valuable help you want, you know i am just a call away. Really looking forward to see some new facts and analysis on the blog. Rest we will talk when we will meet. All the best and God bless ya.
