Current Trends for the Pawn Industry Hello to all
Ladies and Gentlemen in Pawnland!
As we quickly approach the ending of yet another year, I wanted to take this opportunity to give praise and thanks for yet another very blessed one for PCG and our growing global client base.
Recently my son, Justin Whitehead graduated from college this year with honor grades that exceeded a 3.9 GPA and delivered up one of the greatest gifts a father can receive which was witnessing his son roll across the stage and grab his diploma, setting the stage for the next levels in his life. Proud of you Justin!
As I grow older I remain amazed at how fast the years begin to burn by and words my long passed grandfather once said to me still resonate in my ears today.
“Son life is like a roll of toilet paper, the closer you get to the end the faster it goes!”
2014 represented an amazing year for PCG as we have expanded into a number of new markets nationally and internationally. Most recently we have added groups from the United Kingdom, Russia, Ukraine, Cambodia, Philippines, New Zealand, Curacao, and Mexico with some other additions working in Malaysia, Indonesia and Australia.
Earlier this year our consulting travels took us to Cambodia, Philippines and to New Zealand to work with our kiwi’ friends and family down that way with a little Big Rich and Kamaaina Loan in Maui on our way back in.
As far as our year is concerned we have a number of significant events and activities behind us. This embarks our 4th year of our now famed “pawnbroker peer groups”. We had travels last year to Canada and Colombia with our groups, with stops this year with our members in Arkansas and in Dallas Texas. For 2015 we will be rolling into the beautiful island country of Aruba along with the Sarasota / Bradenton areas of Florida to work with other group members.
The groups are shaping up to be truly business and life changing events for our group members as we all strive to enhance our businesses through engaged examination of all of our operations whilst constantly sourcing for “Best Practices” at all times. Many of our peer members have also developed lifelong friendships and business fellows in which they can lean upon at any time as a result of the social networking and more that is evolving from these activities.
Earlier this year PCG hosted a new level of our “Work Shop” series in Ft. Worth Texas to an over-subscribed crowd and also delivered up a new round of high-level, interactive activities previously not witnessed to a mixed crowd of PCG participants from around the country.
For 2015 PCG has a host of new programs we will be introducing such as our “work shop” series which will continue with several stops around the country.
PCG is actively involved in developing a new “trade show” format for a wider spectrum of industries to participate in. These programs are to collaborate with and to educate a wider mass of folks on a variety of “Best Practices” along with new and innovative techniques in trade show educational formats all geared to propel our businesses further than we may have envisioned in a collective fashion. These programs coupled with a wide array of vendors and other service providers who wish to collaborate with PCG will make these productions educational and will pack a host of other benefits to participants and supporters.
It has been a wonderful year for us over here at PCG and to all of the many followers, supporters, and family members, from the bottom of my heart thank you all for your continued support, it means so much to us here at PCG and we WILL continue to deliver up the best of the best for our growing global community.
For the brothers and sisters of the Christian tribes, a very Merry Christmas to you all and all of our brothers and sisters of all other tribes, yes Happy Holidays, Happy New Year and see you all in 2015!!
