    Imagine Pristine in its early days, a start-up company with amodest daily newsletter sent by fax from a Bronx, NYbasement apartment to a single customer! Certainly, humblebeginnings, wouldn't you agree? Just nine short years later,Pristine now serves tens of thousands of clients with free andpaid subscription education and market intelligence on adaily basis. We grew by treating each and every client as wewould our own family, providing knowledge, support, and

    encouragement on the way to self-empowerment. After all, isn't that what educa-tion is all about? For every student of ours who goes on to surpass the masters, webeam with pride. And that's why we often speak of our clients, as well as ouremployees and associates, as part of the "Pristine Family." We never forget thatyou, the client, are the reason for our success; and we are grateful for your continued support and loyalty.

    We are extremely excited about recent developments. In February, weacquired Digevents, Inc., a leading edge company in the production and distribu-tion of live and recorded online content. This purchase has truly catapulted us intothe world of media. We now produce and present online courses (both live andarchived) and CD's of our own material as well as that of other leading educatorsin our field. We've expanded our on-site education and venues as well, providingmore than 200 seminars and workshops throughout the country and abroad peryear.
