Hi – thanks for dropping by the Measurement Doctor site.
Care to connect further… let’s chat on Twitter @GeorgeGill
<< yes that’s me… George Gill
A husband, father of three, son, brother and a passionate serial entrepreneur
(combined it’s what makes me who I am).
And if you’re interested, I’d like to tell you my story…
I’m truly a lucky one. I really mean that. When I look at the young people (of yesterday & today), I’m amazed by the percentage of people that have no idea what they want to do with their life.
Although, my journey has taken me from my early beginnings of owning retail stores, to today owning multiple companies in multiple industries, one thing has always remained the same – I’ve always wanted, known, and loved running businesses. Figuring out their nuances of how to make them work and then analyzing & strategizing to make them work even better.
I thrive on overcoming challenges, and doing what so many consider too risky – “to be an entrepreneur”.
That being said, I’ve also been known to frequently proclaim that ‘I really don’t know what I’m going to do when I grow up’.
I think this speaks to my inner child side (strong and healthy), which quite bluntly I hope hangs around for a long time to come.
… back to my story:
From the meagre age of 10, I knew that I wanted to run companies. And by age 19, I’d opened my first retail store. I could go into the long and frankly interesting story of the challenges of making this happen, but we’ll leave that for another time as we continue to get to know each other.
From that point on – of opening my first company – I’ve never looked back. I’ve lived and learned a lot in the 25 plus years that have followed… but I wouldn’t be here today without numerous challenges, successes, failures, and most importantly growth from the vast lessons acquired along the way.
In fact, it’s challenges and failures that have given me the biggest growth. They’ve been the inspiration for most of our products, services – and interestingly enough – the companies I’ve founded and operate today. Leading me to here… where I now focus the majority of my attention; helping businesses and entrepreneurs grow their ventures personally and professionally.
As it happens, our full service marketing service company GILL Solutions evolved out of our own challenges in a changing marketing landscape. We needed to adapt and grow or perish and fail.
After much study in the area of success, and crystallizing the difference between lucky and unlucky, I found that “measurement” was a key ingredient. As a result; the Web Analytics Training Programs were developed, along with the Measurement Doctor Podcast, and our YouTube Tutorial series too. These are just a few ways to help other businesses understand and apply measurement to their business(es), so they too can reap the many rewards.
The list of solutions doesn’t stop there, nor limit itself to just online.
Do you ever get upset with your cell phone provider? Yup me too! And knowing there had to be a better way, we developed our Cell Phone Management Company, GILL Technologies. Providing what I felt to be the ultimate combination of best user support, reduced plan costs through optimization, and improved reporting for measurement and accountability… and all of that at an enterprise level too.
So this is the way I roll so to speak.
I’m fascinated in discovering what makes things work, identifying how to push myself and others to grow personally and professionally, and revealing the often tiny differences that explode, creating major results.
My hope is that the Measurement Doctor site becomes a source to guide and motivate you, and as a result grow your business to unbelievable heights. Along the way, I hope we can get to know each other better too.
So leave me a comment, join our community, and let’s all build the lives & lifestyles we dream of!
