UK Mentor / Investor
Gary Seeny spent the first 30 years of his working life committed to toy retailing, starting out as a ‘Saturday Boy’ and climbing the corporate ladder to become both multi-site area and general manager. Gary’s particular passion was to unravel mess and the challenge of sorting out poorly performing stores whilst building great teams.
After years in retail, Gary was truly fed up with travelling up to 1000 miles a week, staying away in hotels and not seeing enough of his wife, children, family and friends. Exchanging hours for money wasn’t working for Gary.
Gary was at a life crossroads so as he and his wife had always loved music, they decided to set up a Yamaha music school together. Within seven years, Gary’s school had become the fastest growing Yamaha music school in the country and he loved to inspire young people. But hard work was taking its toll and it had become a JOB, working 24/7.
Thereafter, Gary and his wife sold the business and are now full-time property investors, thanks to Gary’s Training & Mentorship with Legacy Education Alliance, Inc. (LEA). Gary now works on a property portfolio of Buy to Let houses and HMOs. Always requiring refurbishment, Gary relishes in a property’s transformation, as well as the creativity required to maximise space and has a keen interest in new and innovative building materials.
The greatest gift for Gary is that now he gets to spend much more quality time with his wife, enjoying lots of holidays and having coffee together all over the world.
