What If It's Not Your Call? A Twitter With Questions...

With the immenent closing of many competing dealerhships accross the nation, this question seems appropriate: "What do you do when it's not your call?" As in, when it's not your decison to make, what's the best way to influence the outcome? Who's ear to you speak to? How do you make sure you're represented fairly? I know there are many dealers that feel they got the short end of the stick in the form of a letter stating they were out of business.

I try to apply things in a downscaled version to my life and career, and I can't help but wonder if there's an "out of business" letter in store for me in days to come. A forward thinker and idea pusher, I think I do an outstanding job, but do the right ears agree?

I decided to take the initiative to put myself in the best situation possible from where I sit.
My parents raised me to be respectful, and I always wanted to make them proud. Their encouragement pushed me to be better. The same with my high school and college coaches. I am learning more and more that in the workforce, you have to be that voice for yourself.

So many of us have the ability to spin our industry on a dime if we continue to push, encourage, and educate each other in venues such as Twitter. Set Tweet Deck, or another application that allows you to combine some of your social networking site updates. Continue to post things that have helped you, and ask for help.

Tweeting can help. There's a lot of junk out there, but if you can filter it out and focus on your colleagues, it's invaluable.
