"Hey J.D., This is something even I understand, at least in principle. My primary business has nothing to do with internet communications (email, social media, website content, etc.). However, the type of customer communications we do are…"
"Ok Big Tom, I'm sold. Except I've got a buddy who says no Marine is a "former" Marine. He says "Marines are Marines for the rest of their lives," much like R. Lee Ermey proclaimed in Full Metal Jacket.…"
"Attention: Anyone who sells anything. I get lots of sales and motivational solicitations and would never repost anything unless it was "outstanding." The following message truly is outstanding. It's from S. Anthony…"
"Hey Paul, Thank you for your candid, confident and concise answer. As to your question, "Where Saturn is today?," in orbit around the sun where it belongs. GM's always had a problem with names, as witnessed by such natural…"
"Kudos to Joe Tarell for delivering the kind of "flat earth" post that got our members riled up enough to comment en masse, which proves that when the s*** gets deep enough, they will respond. Reviewing it all today, I noticed Nate…"
"Your response to this post, either written or just kept to yourself, generates only one question that, to me, is totally intriguing. But, please let me preface it by acknowledging the "one-price" owner/management advantages…"
"Hey Paul, I'd never make a personal attack on you. (I don't even know you and I'm way too conservative to waste time doing it. I always associated personal attack as kind of a liberal thing.) But, I am interested in "The…"
"Reflecting on this post since commenting yesterday, I arrived at the office today, noticed all of the responses, and then tried to put the most positive light on it I could. I haven't read any David Ruggles recently, and his…"
"Trying to read this post almost made me physically ill. And, when a pro like Jim "the Alpha Dawg" Ziegler arrives at the same conclusion about you not being credible, well, it surprises me that you even bothered to post period.…"
"Well-spoken and a real "Labor of love" J.D. Congratulations on your first year. Honestly, can you actually name anyone who wouldn't have bet on your success? I do disagree with your 6th point as most would be…"
"Good afternoon Richard. Nice post, but I need some clarification. Was this post suppose to be directed exclusively at dealership management? From a rep's point of view, I'd recommend most everything you propose, but do it for yourself.…"
"Subi, Prior to responding to you, I read your bio (as I most always do with those I'm interested in enough to read) and noticed you worked with J.D. Rucker, whom I've never met except on ADM, but who's well established with excellent…"

ADM is a Professional Network, describe YOUR Value Proposition... "Why should anyone do business with you?"
I'll make more money for them then I'll cost them, and I'll never once mention a selling price or utilize any type of giveaways, such as coupons, discount cards, etc.
What will YOU contribute to the ADM Community?
Extensive background in developing and producing highly personalized customer follow-up and referral enhancement, first for myself for 20+ years and then for the reps and management of a small group of elite SoCal dealerships for 20+ years. Prior to that, I gained notoriety as a Limerick Poet and I'm credited with such classics as "I once knew a man from Nantucket" among many others. My one sentence business description "elevator speech" is: "We believe everyone enjoys hearing nice things said to them, and we genuinely love helping people say them."

I am so happy we didn't lose you and your excellent participation in the ADMPC... It is important that we get different opinions and perspectives, because it is the debate, the discussions and the arguments in favor of various positions that makes this a PROFESSIONAL network first, and a social network second. Not all of us may always agree with your comments and perspectives, but that is EXACTLY why your contributions are so valuable to this community. Thank you for all that you do to keep commentary lively and far from becoming dull.
