We had a big vision, but no strategy to get us there.
We had no real idea of who our clients were, let alone how to reach them.
Our products and packages were either non-existent or poorly put together.
We almost had to give up because of the constant lack of cash and frustration.
Our personal relationships were being affected and we were living a life burnt out and constantly chasing the NEXT SHINY PENNY.
In one word... IT SUCKED!
But our vision was powerful enough to drive us forward during some challenging times.
Transparency is the core value of our business, and this is why we will not promise you that running your own business will be easy, actually, it will be the opposite and challenges will happen daily.
What I can tell you is this:
Purpose will get you moving. Strategy will get there.
We are now in our 4th year of business, and generate six figures in sales per year.
The last 3 years of running GTeX has been a roller coast ride of personal and professional development, mistakes and lessons, money earned and money wasted.
Not only have we invested a significant amount of money into our personal development, we have invested 10’s of thousands of pounds into:
Marketing and Branding
Social Media (we’ve invested so significantly in this, it’s best to keep it separate!)
But year after year we have doubled the size of our business, and now we want to share with you some of the lessons we have learned.
