I bought my first company in 1981. It was a four-employee courier service in Seattle and over the years I grew that business into the largest messenger service in the State of Washington. Along the way, I found I enjoyed business so much that I started or purchased over twenty other companies in various industries. I did all that even though I was chronically underfinanced. That was possible mostly because I focused on creating a strong work environment where all the employees were motivated and engaged. During my first 25 years of usiness ownership, I created hundreds of different bonus programs to reward the employees and propel the businesses forward. In that process of trial and error, I discovered the Eight Essential Elements of the Perfect Bonus Structure and in 2008, I decided to wrote my first book "Bonus Your Way to Profits!" I followed that up four years later with "The Ultimate Motivated Employee" and in 2018, I wrote my latest book, "Express Exec - A novel approach to outrunning the pace of change". Today, I am President of US Dispatch, my little messenger firm all grown up, MetroGistix, a unique delivery service for niche clients, and Creative Consulting Corp, which offers management training to clients.. He spends his time managing the delivery company and writing more, consulting and speaking on his favorite topic, how to create a productive and engaged workforce.

Better to find that out now before you spend years in futile exercise. Gary believes that many employees work hard and fail to get recognized for it.
