When I first met George, I was in the process of inheriting the family business which has been established in the Sydney suburb of Surry Hills for over 40 years.
At the time, we were a small retail shop selling old and second hand furniture. I was looking for help because I wanted to change the direction of the business into a custom designed, high end retailer and had no idea on how to do that.
I had no plan, no goals and no concrete vision. The day to day running of the business was hectic. I was completely time poor, I was doing everything myself, yet it felt like I wasn’t accomplishing anything or moving forward. I was stuck working my life away, day and night, including weekends. I didn’t have time to really go out or see my friends all that much and on top of it all, I was taking a small wage that really didn’t justify the effort at all.
Working with George, I got clear on my vision and set about putting it into motion. In only a few months, the business was unrecognisable. The old furniture was gone, replaced with new modern pieces and the layout, merchandising and frontage was completely transformed
With George’s guidance:
Since working with George:
Working with George is easily the best thing I have ever done. It wasn’t always easy or fun, in fact George constantly pushed and held me accountable to follow through and perform at higher and higher levels. However, the knowledge, guidance, mentoring and support are second to none, and I couldn’t recommend him highly enough!
