Don't Be an Answering Machine

While training a 13-store dealer group this week, I had the pleasure of meeting a salesperson and manager who assured me they were tip-top at taking sales calls. I was ecstatic. It isn’t everyday you’re brought in to advance dealerships in need of Internet and phone help and immediately run into someone that has such confidence in their expertise that it would (if I believed them) eliminate their need for any training. How wonderful. (I hope you can accept the…

When caught making a mistake or doing wrong, children will always look to point the finger elsewhere. They’ll blame it on a friend, a neighbor, a bully, or an instigator. They were just following someone else’s lead… even if they knew it was wrong. That’s their excuse.…

New Jeep Cherokee (a.k.a. Liberty successor): ugly or REALLY ugly?

As a confirmed car-guy (sorry, car-person just doesn’t have the cred), I am fairly opinionated when it comes to automotive design, and at the same time recognize that vehicles often look much better in person than in launch photos. Reference the new Mustang that I enjoyed much more in person than photos, or the Panamera that’s at least less ugly in…
