Over the weekend, you get a call from your brother. He is currently working for a large restaurant chain in their management training program.
“Hi, Lee,” you say. “How’s everything in the sandwich business?”
“Good,” he says. “Great, really. I’m calling because I need your financial brain.”
“Sure. What do you need?”
“Well, now that you have completed these financial projects, we are looking to expanding into other industries and companies. How can you apply financial analysis techniques to other corporate or business situations? What opportunities do you see?
“Okay. Sure. Let me think about this first, and I’ll call you back after this next week is over. I’m working on some time-sensitive things at Apix, and I want to be able to shift my focus.”
“That’s perfect,” he says. “I’ll clear my calendar for next weekend so we can get together—whatever is best for you.”
“Okay! See you soon.”
