    PCG Pawn Peer Focus Groups

    PCG has our dates set for our Spring meeting of our Legendary Focus Groups as we will be descending down to Lake Charles to visit Claiborne and Cindy’ Self’s store, CC’s Pawn Superstore in Lake Charles LA for an up-close and upfront examination and critiques of their operations!

    Are you interested in taking part of the most revolutionary
    game-changing way to enhance your business acumen, your performance of
    your operation(s) and make more money while developing close, lifelong
    friends and relationships with others in your industry while studying
    their business models as well as yours up close and up front?

    PCG is forming new groups now!

    The Group participation provides a number of opportunities to gain knowledge from the collective of the groups in real time up close and up front. The PCG focus group we have now, has more than 400 years of collective wisdom from the members in this group.

    Groups are geared to explore the brutal honesty of what you may be doing right, or wrong in the eyes of the collective.

    Groups are limited to no more
    than 15 (store or company) members – This is to keep the groups tight
    and not overly burdened with too much participation.

    Members can bring up to 4
    members from each operation to the group meetings unless other
    arrangements have been made. Teams that are being critiqued, typically
    bring in all or most of their supervisory personnel when the live
    critiques are going on during our sessions that occur post the store
    tour aspects of group participation.

    Members create lifelong
    relationships with other peer members, these relationships carry well
    beyond the focus group participation themselves. The network expands for
    all members and having the collective available for questions or
    concerns provides a wider range of access for all members and
    participants on real life day to day issues affecting you and or your

    Many members of our current
    group have become good friends and the open channel dialogues amongst
    the members in the groups is priceless.

    Groups meet two times a year in a member’s market area – typically spring and fall

    The focus groups themselves primarily function as follows:

    • Meet two times a year in member’s market area
    • One-day store or store tours (Bus groups or other)
    • One to two-day group sessions held in the member’s market area (hotel or conference center)
    • Case Study of the member(s) store(s) and or market
    • Operational critiques from the members provided on site
    • Examination of Operators’ Best Practices
    • Examination of the Financial Metrics – Key Performance
      Indicator analysis and more – see how you compare or are improving to
    • Personnel – Examination of the team, structure, performance and more
    • Bonus & Compensation Systems – Examination of performance pay and other forms of acknowledgement or compensation
    • Competitive Strengths or weaknesses
    • Group Discussions and Other participants speaking and or
      presenting at group gatherings to constantly expand relevant subject
      matter for the benefit of the members of the group – Ideas, topics, and
      other matter presented at each group gathering for future meetings

    All members sign a participation agreement, new member petitions must receive a 70% majority to vote to get into the group.

    PCG protects ALL members and their respective market areas. (25 mile radius current protection rules in the members participation agreement)

    Members must not be in
    competition, not planning on competing in member market areas, nor may
    members poach personnel or impede any member’s operations or market
    areas in anyway.

    PCG charges an annual fee of 5K for the administrative duties required to produce and organize the group gatherings. Other fees for participation include the pro-rata share or expenses for producing each event at each gathering. This would be for the meeting spaces, travel for PCG, meals, buses and or transportation, guest speakers, or other related production charges. Typically, these expenses run about $500 per attendee per meeting.

    PCG does organize all of the hotel spaces, meeting spaces, buses, schedules, guest speakers and or presenters, chairs all meetings, and agendas for each gathering that occurs twice a year.  

    AS indicated we are putting new
    groups together now, if you would like to be considered for joining one
    of our groups for a life changing activity for you and your business,
    contact me directly.

    Once your market has been
    placed, no more participation within that market will be allowed to
    participate in the focus group that encompasses that market.
