When I started SchoolStatus nearly four years ago, I honestly never gave a lot of thought to what our company would look like in 2016. Frankly, at that point, we were just trying to get a concept off the ground and make the occasional payroll. Over the past few years, we've spent a considerable amount of time discussing the kind of company we'd like to build.
