As a business coach, it’s Greg’s experience as a business owner that put him in the position to be able to help small and medium business owners like yourself gain back time freedom and achieve real results.
Greg’s entrepreneurial spirit was ignited from a young age after watching his father build a successful property business. Passionate to emulate his father’s legacy, he became a founding member of the Dalby Agricultural College before building out the largest and most lucrative region for manufacturing corporation Incitec.
In the background, his father was pushing Greg to establish his own business. After many attempts, Greg went into partnership with his dad, buying a 50% share of a family-owned car rental company. But he hadn’t completed his due diligence. His lack of research saw the business go bust quickly and he and his father lost everything. It was an important business lesson and one he carries into his work today.
The failure of his first business venture wasn’t going to hold Greg back. He invested in a growing financial services firm and within three years expanded his territory from zero to 200 clients.
Driven for more, Greg procured his licence. He took on a partner, established Gunther Doyle Financial Planning and in less than six years merged with two other companies to create the largest privately-owned financial planning firm in Australia with $5M in revenue.
His dream, though, was to create a company that did not rely on him solely and in 2006, established Greg Gunther & Associates offering advisory services to business owners.
In 2013, former colleague, Joshna, joined Greg’s firm. Within two years the pair joined forces, rebranding the business to Your Business Momentum—a business consulting firm helping clients break free from the daily grind. In addition, Greg became the Co-Founder and Director of The Podiatry Hive; working with podiatry practitioners to build more profitable and effectively managed practices.
After years of helping business owners succeed, Greg’s has recently launched a co-authored book, Feet First that inspires and empowers small business owners to not only dream but to achieve their dreams.
