Getting them was hard enough, but now you have an even more difficult task in front of you: deciding which one to accept.
This is a complex analysis that will require years of data, math skills, and top-notch spreadsheet wizardry, so fire up Excel right now and learn how to create the model that you’ll need to make your decision.
