It took me over 13 years of generating more than a million dollars a year in sales, working seven days a week, and still having no money to realize I was doing something very wrong in my business. I’ve learned the hard way that I didn’t have to do it all by myself, that I was charging much less than I should, was lacking leadership skills and many other mistakes.
But I sought help, got coached, and learned how to run a business properly; I made myself obsolete in my own company, and now I do the same thing for others.
In this episode, we walk hand in hand through my journey into the automotive industry that started thanks to a shady service advisor that tricked me into paying for something my car didn’t need. We explore the details every business owner should consider when hiring, retaining customers and associates, advertising their business, and more. We also introduce the concept of internal customers, and we look at why we treat our external customers better than our employees when they have the same importance.
The automotive industry sees itself as a silo; we do things together but ignore what other industries are doing. That is one of the many beliefs this podcast came to debunk; we plan to have guests from several industries sharing their knowledge, expertise, and value.
So buckle up, start your engine, and join me on the first episode of Maximum Octane, where together, we can learn how to be better leaders, run a successful business while still having a fulfilling life, and most importantly, happy internal and external customers.
