Current Trends for the Pawn Industry Hello to all
THE TRUTH ABOUT PAWNSHOPS
Tired of being scared in Your Pawn Shop Business?
First, I wanted to thank many of our followers for the wonderful feedback and responses from our recent blog titled:
“Seeing Negative Commentary about You and YOUR Pawnshop Business”.
AS indicated, many of us are being compromised mentally from some of the negative commentary about what skills you may or may not have, what YOU think is or is NOT important in your business and so on.
Well enough is enough!
I agree the Pawnshop Industry has undergone many changes over the past several thousand years of existence, and more importantly in the last 35 years or so with the advent of public money, the Internet, online E-Tailers, technology in general and so on.
People ask me all the time, “What is the Pawnshop business like in other countries”.
Whelp, much like this country, guess what, we are ALL in the business of selling money, and for any of you who know me or have heard me speak at many of the trade shows over the last 20 years or had our consulting services up close and up front, know that is one of my most common sayings.
Yes, we are the business to sell money!
Operating in today’s environment, yes, takes more dedication and sophistication as the competitive landscape for the Pawnshop industry has increased dramatically, of which I also agree with.
Trying to determine when, where, or what direction YOU should choose to help you stay on course, or improve the course you are on IS the challenge.
We can provide very easy, affordable, simple, go at your pace solutions without the hype, pressure, or painful peer pressure many are uncomfortable with dealing with in group settings.
If it’s group’s you think might work for you, we have that too with our Pawn Peer Focus Groups.

Here is a short list of our available online training courses:
PCG has said for decades:
“We are all in the Financial Business, and more than 90% in this industry world-wide, have very little understanding of their true Financial Performance and the Key Performance Indicators”.
PCG has become one of the industry’s leading financial analysts, as we have decades of data from store performances all over the USA and world-wide and know very well how the industry is trending in real time through our collective industry reach.
Many of our clients have advanced their businesses by having a better understanding of how the metrics affect their businesses and what they can do to further optimize the financial success of their businesses overall.
Too many are missing these key ingredients in the rush to attempt to build other aspects of their businesses today, by missing the key ingredients of true performance and what they mean to YOUR bottom line and sustainability.
