Can't we learn how to duck the hit? I am tired of getting hit all the time!

P.S @Jim I got an email back form Brent Hillyer he passed your message onto Ed for me.
Thanks Josh, you are appreciated. JIM
@Josh - There are quite a few automotive professionals who were making VERY high income levels based on performance based pay plans from 2002 through 2006... When the wheels started coming off the "Gravy Train" in the first half of 2008, there were some sales managers and ISM's that saw their income levels drop from over $20,000 a month down to $2,500 to $3,500 a month... Regardless of ducking or any other slick moves, the $2,500 to $5,000 monthly mortgage payments some of these people have would come around and blind side them!

The most income I have ever made in the car business was in March 2007, which was my last month working as an employee of Courtesy Chevrolet... For six months after that I was retained as a consultant to the owners, but their payments for my services were made to ADP Dealer Services. When the whole industry is taking shots across the board, it is unrealistic to think any individual is going to escape the carnage and duck all the hits... What I love about this clip is it points out what people in the car business truly need to embrace... The spirit of resiliency and creative problem solving.

$20,000 a month!!! Where can I sign up? But seriously, its a good clip and yes there are important parts in it that are relevant to any industry. PS I took the survey.
