My business solves the toughest computer performance problems for organizations of all sizes, particularly those with corporate servers. We’re not just good at it; we guarantee spectacular results. And it is all done through computer software products that live up to our trademarked Set It and Forget It style.

One of the best discoveries I made about the Hubbard Management System was the technology of Public Relations. This was a huge eye opener for me. There it was – I had stumbled on this and suddenly lights went off and I understood how to use PR to gain agreement, cooperation and support. I also understood how to use it internally. As a result of using just one aspect of Mr. Hubbard’s administrative technology, we have been nominated as a Top Work Place in Tampa Bay for 4 years in a row, and 2016 has been our most prosperous year yet. So my advice? Try it – you won’t be disappointed!

Prior to utilizing the Hubbard Management System my practice was very difficult to run. The profitability was almost non existent. The staff were impossible to manage and difficult to keep productive. I saw 40 patients per week and worked 50-60 hours per week. Now, thanks to the Hubbard Management System, I see close to 400 patient visits per week and I work on average eight hours per week in the practice. We went from almost going out of business to having a practice in the top 3% of podiatry practices in the country. Running a business with the Hubbard Management System is a joyful and fulfilling adventure. It is an adventure in which you are in control – you determine the expansiveness of your visions and you have the confidence to turn that vision into reality.

My brother and I actually acquired the business in 1992 from its original founder, because it was so far in debt. The company had about 5 employees, very little work, virtually no assets, and over $100,000 in debts. It was a nightmare, but after implementing The Hubbard Management System, we were able to pay off those debts and grow from those small beginnings to 5 offices around the country. We have worked on some of the most historic places in the US, like Lincoln’s Birthplace, Teddy Roosevelt’s ranch in ND, Presidents Hayes, Harding and McKinley’s houses, pre-revolutionary homes in Maryland and South Carolina. My advice is to implement the Hubbard Management system as fast as possible, and get control over your business and your life!

There is no way I could have done what I have without utilizing the Hubbard Management System. I built my company from the ground up with no capital injections to a thriving company with 195 staff and a leader in its field. I found the articles of Mr. Hubbard quite easy to implement because I have a core group of executives who are totally on the same page with me. The long term benefits of implementing various Hubbard Management System principles have been growth and understanding how to grow. And it actually works!
Gregory A. Winteregg D.D.S. graduated from the Indiana University School of Dentistry in 1981. He gained valuable experience in leadership as Class President for three years. He set up a private practice in a small farm town and by applying the Hubbard Management System he was able to place his practice into the top 4% of all practices nationally. He has been the partner in one of the largest international dental practice management training companies for over twenty years. In that capacity he has lectured to tens of thousands of doctors and their staff on the most workable system of business management technology. Today, besides lecturing and writing regularly on dental practice management, he spends many hours helping raise funds for charitable organizations.
I learned that Mr. Hubbard had done exhaustive research on the subject of marketing and developed seven points that create an effective ad. I learned those seven points and incorporated it all into what I was promoting. Within six months, I went from five or ten new patients per month to over forty! All in a town of only ten thousand with eleven dentists!
Then, learning how to get patients to want what they need (instead of just what insurance covered) I found myself becoming so busy that I had to get an associate. The rest is history. So yes, this was the best decision I ever made!

I discovered Mr. Hubbard’s administrative writings in 1988 and started U-Man Belgium. This company grew so fast, that at the end of 1989 we hit the $1 million range; in 1990 we hit $2 million and in 1991 we hit $3 million. We achieved that extraordinary growth by implementing just one of Mr. Hubbard’s articles, entitled: The Structure of Organization – What is Policy? Since then, I have traveled the world to train tens of thousands of people on the Hubbard Management System and have seen those same results over and over again. It became my passion and dedication, so I can highly recommend it!

The first thing to realize is that there is are standard procedures in the field of management. The Hubbard Management System provides these – and more. I am always surprised to see how little is known about management and you can see how few businesses actually survive longer than 5 years. We see our clients expanding through those procedures, and hitting top production levels. There is a standard technology in running and expanding a company that’s tried and true, highly effective in getting you and your staff fully in the driver’s seat and taking all the guesswork out of achieving your goals. So highly recommended!
