Justin Blaine

Used to pitch baseballs, now I'm pitching companies to acquire our clients.

Retired baseballer. Active father, husband, son, teammate. Making progress each day. When I'm not enjoying my family and AthletesTouch, I'm helping private companies understand their value and telling the story that makes a buyer or seller engage.

Soft surfboards to manufacturing fuel-efficient kits on planes. Educational software solutions to commercial chain link fences. Those examples sum up the diversity of our client base. The process of valuing and selling a business is typically very similar, even when results may be very different. We work with owners looking to exit or acquire other companies to grow. $10 million to $200 million in revenue.

    Pasadena Team Meeting

    So, who am I?

    And why would you listen to me?

    Well, I’m Lauren.

    Hi! I’m a mom-of-three, wife to an amazing man, business-owner, daughter, mentor, coach and terrible cook. Luckily eating well doesn’t require a chef’s knowledge.

    I played sports – all kinds of sports – growing up in Trail B.C., Canada, and found my path in softball.

    I am a 2x-Olympian for my home country (2004 and 2008) and know the meaning of “hard-work.” I have been exposed to some of the best training programs, nutritionists, and mental performance coaches and am excited to incorporate what I have learned.

    In 2016, with 3 kiddos aged 7, 5 and 4, I came out of retirement and pitched for Team Canada in the World Championships, earning my way to Bronze Medal.

    Through that summer, I had to wear many (many) hats. I had to wear the regular ones like mother, business owner and wife were hard enough to juggle – then I went and added World-Class Athlete to the list. No one gave me any more than the regular 24 hours in a day and I had to take care of myself, along with everyone else in them.

    I learned more about myself in those months than I thought possible and I know that if I can manage to juggle all of those things, then you can manage to juggle taking care of yourself too! I can’t wait to see you take charge of your life and live it on your terms.

  • Wall Street’s Endangered Species: The College Jock

    Member: Justin Blaine (Co-Founder)

    Great article discussing the transition in Financial Institutions to more Artificial Intelligence and how former athletes are seeing a shift in opportunities out of college. However, "They say the core attributes needed to make multimillion-dollar bets are discipline and quick thinking—two traits honed by sports. They argue those skills are still invaluable in the corporate bond market, where banks and other intermediaries take chances every time they hold securities as they look to match buyers with sellers. This is especially true in moments when prices swing violently." Check out the full article by clicking on the following: WSJ Article LINK
