Chris Unger is a Tough and Tenacious Texan. She's a Home Video Studio owner who is diligent to daily do what it takes to get customers and keep them. Running her business for three years now Chris shows no signs of slowing down. That's why Chris Unger is our Home Video Studio September Owner of the Month.

Chris has always had a passion for video. So much, in fact, that she studied film at Colorado Women's College and video production at the Art Institute of Dallas. She also attended The Film School of France in Paris. Ultimately graduating from college with a degree in Women's Studies armed her to began her "real life" education as a freelance woman producer and editor.

"I did it all," says Chris, "from shooting documentaries to production assistant to editing...and that's when cut and paste really meant cut and paste."

Like many of our owners who find Home Video Studio Chris spent time navigating the rapids of freelancing and never quite being able to get in control of her total business. "For instance," says Unger, "I knew I needed to advertise and market myself but knew I didn't have the means to do it the way it must be done. I knew I had to keep up with the latest trends and technology but was too busy working." The Tenacious Texan pressed on.

One day Chris saw an ad for Home Video Studio in VideoMaker and responded. Soon she realized one of our (and her) favorite sayings: You can be in business for yourself but not by yourself. She opened her studio a little over three years ago in August of 2008. Was it a good move?

"It's the best thing I could have done," says Chris. "I didn't have to reinvent the wheel. And I love the support. For instance, at our last Getaway we were given a step-by-step guide to marketing on how to add marketing activities in layers rather than just look at one big overwhelming thing that felt like a duty."

Chris routinely posts great weekly earnings. She has also won the Most Improved Award at the annual Hanley Awards and was nominated for a Hanley as well. Why? Because she gets out and does what needs to be done.

"My mother always told me that old saying 'Where there's a will there's a way' and that's my simple philosophy," says Chris. "I love meeting people and hearing their stories and then helping them tell that story. That's why I've always persued this business and why I always try to get better at it."
