We had the good fortune of connecting with Chris Turner and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Chris, do you have any habits that you feel contribute to your effectiveness?
Waking up early, getting a quick workout in has been crucial for kicking the day off right. It’s imperative that I communicate with my team and let integral members have the authority to delegate, collaborate, and have the freedom to run with our initiatives once the framework is established. Surrounding myself with team members who are positive, driven, and have a good work ethic has genuinely become the root of our success.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Sawyer Twain is a luxury furniture & home recreation company that started by catering to a niche of customers shopping for high-end game room furniture. Our products are not necessarily for just a billiard enthusiast, but rather the casual player who’s looking to fill their space with a beautiful marquee statement piece that will also bring generational fun to family and friends. As we’ve evolved, we’ve brought on more partners in the home furnishings space, which has allowed us the opportunity to cater more to the wants and needs of our clients.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Red’s Beer Garden for lunch and some craft beers, a walk along the BeltLine to work off our food and take in some local art, followed by a quick cut through of Piedmont Park on our way to the High for some more culture. The night wraps up on top of Ponce City Market for one of the best views of Atlanta and some dinner at 9 Mile.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Everyone that I’ve worked with has had somewhat of an influence on my story. It isn’t easy to pin down one exactly. No matter the interaction, positive or negative, each person we have done business with, from our team, and everyone I’ve met along the way has helped to shape my story. The short answer is- a shoutout to those in my life who have driven me forward; each of these interactions is essential.
