Home Video Studio - Apex

(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.
