Help I've Fallen and Can't Get Up

If you want to get rich on the lot today just listen to a few “consultants” that consider themselves “gurus.”Like millions of Americans did when Tom Vu told them how to make real estate millions in his free seminar that was used to sell the more expensive seminar. We have a lot of Tom Vu's in the car business today and while they’re not as entertaining (and don’t go everywhere with 5 gorgeous women in bikinis) they’re professionals at taking dealers’ money. “Do you think these girls like me?…See More

Help Me Understand

Posted on August 8, 2013 at 12:00pm 8 Comments

Over the last 20 months I've become more in tune to what people are talking about publicly and most specifically that of my contemporaries. While I wish no ill will upon any human (or animal) there are a few things I just can’t wrap my head around.

Keep Turnover High in Your BDC!

Posted on August 1, 2013 at 4:58pm 0 Comments

It's how you man (and woman) those seats and how the turnover is calculated that will add directly to your bottom line. You need product specialists talking to your potential customers and following up with sold customers. Who does the customer have the strongest relationship with…
