When asked top three business lessons learned, Pat replies the following:
Determine what your values are and don’t waiver even if it means losing business. Your name and reputation is attached to every job.
Fail Fast – new ideas don’t always work. Nurture and give it your best efforts but know when to cut the strings. There comes a time it doesn’t make sense to continue down the path.
Focus on growing your inside team and your outside team. Growing your inside team includes diversity and understanding everyone has different strengths and talents. Understand each individual’s strengths – utilize, appreciate and grow them. It is also import to focus on your outside team, meaning build a team of professionals to support you– attorney, CPA, financial institution, and business coach.

You could say I was born into fashion. My earliest memories as a toddler include helping my beautiful mother in either of her two chic, yet classically in vogue dress shops which she owned. My mother passed this passion on to me causing me to study and graduate with a college degree in fashion. My early work experience in a high-end clothing retailer gave my imagination the opportunity to run free. At nineteen I began selling men’s suits with all that comes with it. The position and training I received gave me a true understanding of how to “style” a man. Within my first year I was out selling the top sales person with 20 + years’ experience. After a couple of years, I was given that same opportunity with women’s fashion which I sold and consulted for several years. To round out my professional experience I worked and trained with the best in cosmetics “Lancôme Paris” who provided extensive training in skin care and makeup application.
Many of us spend thousands on an education, yet when that is applied to the “real world” we do not understand why that does not take us where we want to go with our careers. It takes seven seconds for your manager/clients to decide how qualified you are, how well you manage, how hard you work etc.…. it isn’t by your education or your resume. The first thing you WILL be judged on is how you are dressed and groomed. This includes how they perceive your confidence through your body stature and baring. I truly believe that we are all handsome/beautiful human beings, there is no formal education in how to define YOU that is where I come in. Your image is VERY PERSONAL, I am here to help you “define it” and make it work for you instead of against you. I want to help you and your organization make that first impression count.
I am so blessed to be married to a gorgeous “Image Defined” man that rocks my world every day. I have three beautiful children and two of the cutest grandsons there could ever be.
Anthony Barney, otherwise known as Tony, is the second generation owner of the family owned business Advance Manufacturing Technology company, located at 839 South 3600 West in Salt Lake City, Utah. AMT, as they are commonly referred to as, has experienced exceptional growth over its two family generations, including exceptional growth during the Great Recession. What makes AMT unique and different than any other manufacturing company is that it is built upon the integrity, innovation and hard work of Tony, his brothers and especially upon their parents. Their father started the company literally in their own back yard doing custom jobs with his own hands. Now they are approaching $10MM in annual gross sales and continue to grow each year. When asked what was the secret to their success, Tony said, “its all about helping people find what they are passionate about and supporting them in their personal talents.” Being a rocket engineer by trade and at heart, Tony truly understands the power and importance of building a company upon moral ethics and upon the shoulders of competent and trusted employees. “When you have three shifts running 24/7 you realize very quickly that you can’t do it on your own and that you have to depend on others. I’m so very grateful to have such an amazing team of employees who make this company the success that it is.” When asked what was one of the highlights of his tenure as CEO, Tony responded with tears in his eyes, “It was when my parents came home from serving an LDS mission to find that their 3 sons had grown the business to significantly bigger than what they had left before their mission including expanding the corporate offices to 10 times the size it used to be and having my mother tell us how proud she was of us three boys.” To earn a mother’s praise like this, there is truly nothing greater in this world. We were honored to sit at the feet of Tony and to learn from him as he taught us about how he and his brothers and parents had created such a wildly successful company. To read the full interview of this interview, be on the look out for the book where Tony and others like him will be spotlighted through Wells Fargo, Business Minds R and D and the U of U’s research.
