Thank you for the connection, Ralph! I'm new here, as you can see. I'm looking to find more dealership clients to add to my roster.  I'm a voice talent with a pro studio, you've likely heard me before on national TV or radio.  Is there any way I can be of service to YOU?

Best regards,

Hi Ralph, just saw a great vid Jasen Rice did and I wanted to share it on Linked In, but I didn't see a LinkedIn share icon. That's about the only flaw there is on this great platform.

Sorry to hear about your hospital stay.  I would have written sooner but I've been "busier than a cat covering it up."  I went to the emergency room last August for "hives," (1st time in a hospital in over 40 years) and after they detected a "skipping heart beat," they put me in IC for a day and then a regular room for a day and a half.  The staff there was as good as to be expected, but the six doctors who gave me about 30 seconds each, appeared to just be looking for a "billing."

I was sure of it after I received a $37,000+ invoice for the 2 1/2 days, and no one ever told me what caused the hives!  I've had the erratic heartbeat for about 10 years, but it's never bothered me, and after I read the negative effects of the meds they prescribed, I pitched the bottle.  My only suggestion to you would be to seriously research everything they prescribe for you.  I just finished a thorough physical with my new Dr. and she told me OK on not taking the prescribed meds on my newly diagnosed AFib, but raise my daily "heart support" aspirin from one 81mg tablet to four a day.

Now, to my second reason for writing to you.  Long ago, I suggested a possible "dictionary" of the latest IT acronyms, but don't need it now as I've found several sites to handle it.  However, what I hope you might do now is create a post listing the professions, by number, of the ADM membership.  No names, just categories and counts.  You know, like 24/7 chat, 200 members.  I think it would be real informative for everyone, but if you have a reason not to make it public, how about just emailing me a list.  I'd love to know!

Thanks, and stay well, Brian

Thank you Ralph for adding me.  I look forward to learning as much as I can again.

Hey Ralph. I would like to add a great dealership on your site. Is it ok to just leave a comment about them and add a link with it?

At 3:26am on May 15, 2015, Ashley Weidner said…

Thank you so much for adding me to your community! I have learned so much from ADM and I am so excited to be a Pro Member. :) I have a huge amount of respect for you and look forward to meeting you. I would love to view your itinerary if you have one posted somewhere so I can plan a trip. Again, many thanks.

In every dealership, it’s the BDC agents and salespeople who speak with more potential customers than anyone else and in today’s harsh economy, customers are typically demanding, constantly in a hurry and usually want information right now. Let’s face it… when you blow that call, they don’t call back and say, “You want to try again?” YOU DON’T GET A SECOND CHANCE TO MAKE A FIRST IMPRESSION!! For any salesperson, your phone skills can be the difference between making more money and, well…not.
