Here's just one comment from a past participant:

"Without training, a garden center staff feels guilty when making a profit. Even worse, they feel the owners are raking in the money after a busy weekend in May.  Percentages, turns, profit margin, and GMROII were simply different languages the team didn't understand, but not after Steve Bailey's financial training.

Every manager, including office managers, attended last year's workshop, and what a difference. The team came back charged up with knowledge on how to put profit on the bottom line. In 2020, we increased gross profit by 1.2% and a net profit 9% over our record the year before. The team had no fear of raising prices when the product came off the truck worth more than the original retail.  

Steve and his team are master teachers of all things financial. The team came through each session energized, speaking the same retail language and having fun. The Group financial workshop is training the will keep on giving for years to come."
