Success is not a secret, it is following a system with Fiona Yue
Fiona is the Director of PGY Consultants, an accredited consultant with The Proctor Gallagher Institute that was established by the legendary Bob Proctor and Sandy Gallagher. Fiona originated from Northern China and came to Australia via Edith Cowan University over two decades ago. She holds an MBA, is the Managing Director of Merino & Co, the largest merino wool products and luxury knitwear manufacturer in Australia, and enjoys investing in many areas.
Having run multiple businesses, Fiona felt she never knew why she succeeded outrageously in some and failed miserably in others until undertaking the Proctor Gallagher program. She says “Success is not a secret. It is in fact a system. For all my successes I have been following the system unconsciously and for all those failures I have been working against the system. Now with this system, I have transformed my results in every area of my life and it’s my mission and passion to help others do the same.”
