Your Big Domino of the Note Business

Cash Flow Expo is only one week away but before we get into any of that we have to ask you a really odd question... ...Do you remember as a kid spending hours carefully stacking dominos one after another in a row until at some point you knock over the first one and watch them all fall down?
