Today my friends and colleagues, Bill D’Alessandro of ElementsBrands.com and Michael Jackness of EcomCrew.com, join the show to help me explain how the team at ECF Capital finally ended up choosing a deal to close on and the work that went into it.

Listen in as we touch on how the deal unfolded, sharing what we liked about the deal from the onset and why our familiarity with the company was very appealing.
