    HOT TOPIC This is INSANITY!

    I've done Insanity. Man is it an a$$ whoopin! Usually run a cycle of it during the winter when weather doesn't permit outdoor activities. Keep with it, make sure you aren't too hard on your joints, and you will see great returns. P90X is great also and mixes in weights.

    I understand that is one of the fast ways to get a quick value on a business, but....there are too many variables to just be that simple. What about profit margins? What about property (owned/rented)? What about equipment/vehicles? What about a comparable business recently listed or sold...
