Featured Studio Owner

Peter and Sharon Galluzzo
Home Video Studio - Apex

Date: 02/12/2009

(Apex, NC) What began as a project to produce a few videos for their church five years ago has turned into a passion for video production for Peter and Sharon Galluzzo - February's Home Video Studio Owners of the Month! "Peter has found his calling," says Sharon, who handles all of the marketing and most of the sales for Home Video Studio - Apex. "He is truly a changed person who loves what he is doing completely!"

That passion for excellence has helped the Galluzzos succeed quickly since launching their business in June 2008. "Despite the downturn in the national economy," reports Sharon, "we've seen a steady growth in our business. I think it's because we're dedicated to the mission of HVS and we practice what Robert (Hanley, Founder and CEO) and the home office staff keep emphasizing."

The Galluzzos didn't just jump into the video business overnight. They spent the better part of three years researching and thinking about their new venture, and they chose HVS because they recognized, in Sharon's words, "the superior home office support." But more than that, Sharon says that she and Peter experienced first-hand the "family atmosphere that Hanley has created with HVS. "I was pleasantly surprised," she says, "to find a sincere willingness to share information, techniques, and solutions from other HVS franchisees." She recounts a story about one of her customers who was having a problem with a DVD. Sharon called another HVS owner who solved the problem on the phone for her in a couple of minutes. "That's the kind of support we really appreciate!"

Sharon also points to networking as one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences. "Oddly," she confesses, "I worked in marketing and Public Relations prior to starting our business, but I didn't realize the potential of networking the way HVS does it. It's been an excellent experience for us!"

Both Sharon and Peter describe their business as, first, a service to others. "Sure, we want to make a profit as all businesses do," she says, "but the fact that the work we do often brings such great satisfaction to our customers is more than just icing on the cake - it is the cake!" The Galluzzos look forward to building their business to a point that both of them can work full time in it. They want to be known in their town as the "go to people" for all video services. And they are certainly off to a great start.

Show 'N Tell: A first glimpse

"Tammy and I came to a Show 'N Tell Saturday. The initial conversation was Robert talking about what it is to be a Home Video studio Owner. Of course we'd listened to the CD's over and over in our car for a couple of months. I think Then we had the presentation and we signed right there at the end of the presentation."

"Our Show 'N Tell Saturday was on May 11, 2002 - Mother's Day weekend! We were already operating our own video business, but we wanted to run it at a higher level with better equipment. We needed a plan and a system like the one offered by Home Video Studio. If you're thinking about HVS, you should go to Show 'N Tell Saturday."

Here's what we'll cover at Show 'N Tell Saturday.


MAKING MONEY
The number one thing we'll cover is making money in the video business. I'll cover pricing video as well as collecting the money. What's the difference between a $500.00 video and a $5000.00 video? Are you leaving money on the table? I'll teach you how we do it! Oh... what about a $30,000.00 video?
ADVERTISING & MARKETING
This is the great unknown for most people who attempt to enter our industry. How do you get business and find clients? I'll share with you.
TRAINING & SUPPORT
I'll cover our 12 month and 21 day in person training program in depth. How do we take you from where you are now to where you want to be? We are very good at this as long as you can take that first step and get to Show 'N Tell!
STUDIO EQUIPMENT
You'll be in my studio all day so we'll definitely get into the nitty gritty on equipment and gear. How will you outfit your studio? Do you have current equipment that can be used? Maybe and if so that will save you some money.
FINANCIAL GOALS
Home Video Studio is a short cut to success. You may be looking for both financial success and creative achievements - money in the bank and an Oscar! We make no promises except to put you in an environment with others who have the same vision. Our mission is to help you achieve success as you define it.
CREATIVE GOALS
Not everyone is out to make a fortune. Home Video Studio is a very fun and exciting business and lifestyle. Want to turn your hobby into a real live functioning studio? We can do that for you. Want to get your family involved in the business? We'll help train them. This is a very family friendly business.
TRANSITIONS
We'll discuss transitions and getting started. Going to quit your job? Come out of retirement? Convert a 401k? Will you work the studio part time until you can go full time? We will start designing a plan for you at Show 'N Tell Saturday.
FUNDING
We are experts in funding and financing. If you need us to help you find the money we would be happy to. It is easy to convert a 401k or IRA with zero penalty. Many people do a refi or a home equity loan. There are other avenues as well. One of the things we do on Saturday afternoon is cover financing. It's not that difficult. If you need consultation on funding call us.

We suggest you bring your spouse/partner to our Show 'N Tell Saturday. That's our treat. You'll know a whole lot more about running a Home Video Studio by end of day on Saturday!
