Work with Greg

Working with Greg around the campfire

“Success is a poor teacher. We only learn by making mistakes!”

This famous quote by Robert Kiyosaki helps Greg to console himself for the many mistakes that he’s made during his employment and business career.

Whilst he’s enjoyed both success and failure along the way, he admits to having learnt and grown most from his mistakes – all of which, he’s proud to say, have been honest ones.

Forty-odd years (some would say forty VERY ODD years) in sales, marketing and management – as well as several years of self-employment, have been very gratifying to him.

The most fulfilling aspect has been the many wonderful people who he has met.

To quote the great Zig Ziglar, “It’s the people that you meet and the books that you read” that helps shape a person.

Along his life journey, he’s met many amazing people – some of whom have encouraged him to pursue my current vocation.

Now, at an age when many people are considering retirement, he has a great zest for life and work because of the opportunity to be a source of encouragement to people who are looking to better themselves.

These days, he teaches people how to use Personal Franchising to create a lifestyle that is rarely available to those in the employment sector.

Personal Franchising is a business model that …

  • Enables people to work from the comfort of their own home – or from anywhere in the world for that matter.
  • Enables people to work part-time or full-time – the hours are completely flexible.
  • Requires no previous business experience.
  • Requires only a low capital outlay – which means low risk
  • Is non-discriminatory. Race, religion, skin colour, shoe size – or even belt size is irrelevant.

“I recall fondly the first time I spoke with Greg. He’s warm, friendly and you couldn’t meet a nicer bloke.

We met and started working with Greg last year. Greg is down-to-earth with a razor sharp wit.

Our agency works with Greg on a regular basis and he’s actually one of our favourite clients.

(Shhhh, don’t tell him though, as it will go straight to his head).

Greg’s fantastic sense of humour and professionalism makes him a true delight to work with.”

“Greg can do anything he sets his mind to – regardless, but with the help of others.

He is warm and friendly – but quick to anger, which quickly subsides leaving no residual resentment.

He is clean and tidy in person and in the house and always willing to accept extra work – even if he doesn’t oblige at once, the job is usually completed in time.”

Greg’s loving Mother
This ‘testimonial’ was written by Greg’s mother in 1976

“Greg Mickan is a semi-retired, over-rated, under-achiever with delusions of adequacy.

He is rude, dis-respectful, ill-mannered and emits a body odour that is reminiscent of ill-cared for farm animals.

Despite being as deaf as a post, he is, in fact a very good listener – one of his enduring qualities. He actually has great empathy and really cares for people.

A fun-loving practical joker, he enjoys taking the p155 out of his mates, but who also has humility when he is on the receiving end of a prank.

He has a wicked sense of humour. In saying that, he also doesn’t suffer fools gladly – and has been known to use ‘colourful’ language when his Internet or phone service is operating at less than capacity. (It’s usually his fault!)

Having known him for almost thirty years, I’m proud to regard him as a very close friend.”

“Without doubt, Greg’s major attributes are of honesty, reliability and an admirable sense of responsibility.

His personality is infectious and this is evidenced by the large number of friends that he has both within the Club and outside.”

“Greg is reliable and trustworthy with the natural ability to make lasting friendships very easily.

He shows sportsmanship and fair play in all he undertakes.”
