How are you using your experience and passion?

Gregory: I’ve learned a lot along the way about antiques. There is a lot of furniture and home décor that has been discarded and I’ve learned to restore it and give it a new life with my own spin. I’ve always been interested in design. I’m a maker, a designer, a collector. I like to take all these things and mold them into one neat little package that is Good Medicine.

What did you take away from your experience at Build?

Gregory: I joined Build Institute to get a better financial understanding of my business. However, the support from the community and hearing everyone’s varying ideas really opened my mind up to learning a lot more about owning a business.

How do you bring new life to furniture and home décor?

Gregory:  There are some objects that don’t need any help and they can be left alone, but there’s a lot of stuff out there that gets discarded. It’s got great bones and I hate to see it be thrown away so I reupholster it and refinish the wood. It really gives me a close connection with each individual object and ups its game. It makes it contemporary and something really unique that no one else has.
