Gary Brose bought his first business in 1981 and enjoyed it so much he started or purchased over twenty more during the next thirty years. Most all of his companies were labor intensive, service oriented, and fast-paced businesses.

Finding himself chronically underfunded, Gary soon realized that he needed to find ways to increase employee productivity in order to stay in business. To that end, he began earnestly experimenting with bonus programs and management techniques designed to enhance employee engagement and motivation.

It was in 1984 that Gary bought his first computer and learned firsthand the lessons of change. Over the years, Gary built his companies up, ever mindful that the business world was not only changing rapidly, but the pace of that change was increasing as well.

Today’s small business person has to wear many hats, read constantly, learn new skills, and help his employees do the same in a never-ending battle to stay ahead of the pace of change.

In 2008, he wrote Bonus Your Way to Profits and in 2012, he penned The Ultimate Motivated Employee. Feeling the need to further massage those management techniques he espoused, Gary wrote Express Exec in story form, teaching business owners and managers how to take their shot at taming the pace of change.
