This class ties together the learning from classes 1-4, in a model that will help you drive your valuation-multiplier significantly higher than the auto service industry average of 1-2x. We will begin by reviewing the key learning takeaways from the first 4 classes (so don’t panic if you missed a class or two), then weave them together into a programmatic approach to creating higher company value.
