6.1 Management Team Gaps
The only significant weakness in the GFX management team lies in financial analysis and accounting principles. We intend to address these critical issues in the following ways:
- Continued business relationship with Ron Lamb, CPA, located in Cushing, Oklahoma, to provide accounting services and financial counseling. Ron has handled our financial affairs for over five years and has an in-depth knowledge and historical perspective on our financial needs and goals.
- Personal study in financial analysis and basic accounting principles.
- Identification of, and participation in, local seminars and/or classes in financial analysis and accounting principles.
