Lads and Lasses We Love – Steve McGarvie

Tell us a bit about yourself and what you do

I’m Steve McGarvie of Pioneer Luminum Ltd and I’m a bit of an allrounder. With wide-ranging experience I’m always able to bring something to the party, I mean table … Having said that, some would say that I’m highly skilled in leadership, communicating, influencing, consulting and negotiating. 

I’m focusing on trying to help others fill the financial gap that many face. Remember JAM back in November 2017 ‘Just About Managing!’

Tell us about your business

I’m looking for people that have an open mind, as I’m involved with a business that helps to compound a percentage of the savings of individuals.

Albert Einstein once declared compound interest to be ‘the most powerful force in the universe’! If you’d like to see how this works out in reality please get in touch. 

What are the most sparkly bits of what you do?

I just love helping people and seeing their delight when they’ve taken a leap of faith and got the rewards for it. 

What are the biggest challenges you face running your business?

None really, maybe just meeting more people …

What have been your biggest achievements and how have you celebrated them?

Surviving a massive operation on Paddy’s day 12 years ago; I celebrate every March the 17th with a pint of Guinness.

What are your goals – for yourself and your business?

I’m hoping to help 100 people in 2019.

What is your favourite place in the North East and why?

I think sitting on the terrace on a sunny day at the 19th at Close House, Heddon-on-the-Wall.

Who puts a Sparkle in your eye?!

Definitely the Grand kids’s … just lush!

A final Sparkly thought – what tips would you give to busy, hard-working entrepreneurs?

Try and work out the spare capacity in your business and how to tap into it; if you’re not sure how then feel free to reach out.
