How To Avoid Committing The Worst EBITDA Adjustment Mistakes Before Your Liquidity Event

"For success in life and business always go the extra mile" - Jeffrey Feldberg

Jeffrey Feldberg is the co-founder of Deep Wealth. The M&A journey for Jeffrey began when he said "no" to a 7-figure and "yes" to mastering the art and science of a liquidity event. Two years later, Jeffrey said "yes" to a 9-figure offer. During the process, Jeffrey increased his company value 10X.
