  • PCG Dates for Executive Leadership Camp III May 14 – 16th

    Ladies and Gentlemen in Pawnland!

    We have our 3rd Executive Leadership Camp coming up and we are filling up FAST!

    For those of you who have attended our last camp or camps, this one also promises to be one of our high-lights this year out of the 7 book reviews we will be doing. This camp will be featuring the book “Smart Moves Management” written by John Thedford the founding principle of the highly successful pawn chain out of Florida called Value Pawn. John built this company to 70+ stores before selling this highly profitable and world class organization to EZ Corp back in late 2008 for 120+ Million Dollars.

    Mr. Thedford utilized the best tools, the best resources and the best management approaches in the world today to build this highly successful organization. The book Mr. Thedford published a few years back featured the high-lights of the winning combinations and practices that his organization utilized to build an award winning operation providing world class service and results.

    Some years back I had the opportunity to work with John and his organization and after witnessing their inner-circles and operational mantra’s I discovered the BEST multi-unit Pawn Organization that was in existence in the world today in their operations.

    As most of our subscribers know, Mr. John Thedford along with his other founding partner of Value Pawn, Mr. David Johns have been producing their highly successful book camp programs in conjunction with PCG to offer our clients and followers opportunities to network with the masters, spend time analyzing, listening to and working in workshop environments to see what it takes to be the best of the best.
