By Entrepreneurship Stories with Arvind Chaurasiya
It's common to hear about entrepreneurs who made some decisions that left them nothing to lose but still they built a thriving startup, boosting the ecosystem, solving problems and giving jobs to many!
These stories are inspiring in their own way; but to me, it's even more inspiring to interact about people who hustle every single day to make things better!!
Sharing stories and learning from stories is incredibly powerful because they're real life.
Hi, I'm Arvind Chaurasiya and I bring positive, motivating and inspiring entrepreneurship stories for you.
I welcome you everyone on this platform called "Entrepreneurship stories with Arvind Chaurasiya" on this episode we have a very special guest a Global leader, Educator, Co-founder and CEO of global service in education MR. Greg Perry so let's welcome and hear him out
Arvind Chaurasiya : Hi Greg welcome to this episode called Entrepreneurs with the stories with Arvind Chaurasiya.
Arvind Chaurasiya: First would like to know about you
Greg Parry: Sure yes yeah my name is Greg parry and I’m Australian i first left Australia in 2008 first working as an international head of school in Dubai then moved on then I moved on to India where I worked in Mumbai setting up an international school there and then my wife and I launched our own company we set up and operate international schools in different parts of the world on behalf of investors and developers so we've lived and worked in six different countries now and been involved in projects across about 15 different countries I’ve actually travelled to 59 countries in my lifetime so very international and yeah very and focused on setting up and operating schools
Arvind Chaurasiya: Tell us about your venture/company

Arvind Chaurasiya: I would like to know more about what made you start Global Services in Education
Greg Parry: Well, we were both very successful as principals we were very successful at
operating schools and I guess over time we were meeting business people who wanted to uh get involved in the education industry but they didn't have the expertise we also came across many examples of people that operated schools but didn't know how to do it and I often like to tell the story that I love restaurants I love eating beautiful food but that doesn't mean I should operate a restaurant and unfortunately, on many occasions, we have entrepreneurs business people that are seeing the profits that can come from education without really understanding the industry so that's the niche or the gap that we satisfied that demand some people describe us as being like hotel operators just like Sheraton grand Hyatt four seasons uh an investor usually wants to invest in the space but they bring on an expert to operate it for them so that they can maintain and achieve the high quality
Arvind Chaurasiya: yeah absolutely okay whenever we you know like youngsters they start the business right and they get into the entrepreneur entrepreneurs generally right they have always a problem of mindset so would you like to say something about that mindset that that will help them to you know grow and go get going with their entrepreneurship career.
Greg Parry: Sure i know that a lot there's said about vision and mission and having dreams but it really is very important you have to have a dream you have to be really passionate about something that's bigger than yourself and it needs to be something that's quite lofty something that's beyond your reach you need to be excited about it you need to be passionate about it you need other people to say you can't do it it needs to be something quite distant and i think that's really important and you need to be motivated um to be honest many entrepreneurs will tell you stories about maybe people telling
