Que tal, Senor Natural. You hit it on the head when you mention the power of a positive mindstate. Helping to create a culture of "positive awareness" is key when it comes to us producing for our dealerships. So often negativity can become a cancer that spreads quickly, but we sometimes fail to be "aware" that positivity can be cultured and shared with the same (if not better) result.

We have evolved something, here in Quincy, that I think you would be proud of. Have a great month, amigo!

Mr Natural, I am new to this site. Not 100% sure how to get a direct message to you. They do not make it very easy on this site. I own a vehicle transport company that caters to high-end dealerships. Perhaps we can discuss this at your leisure? Feel free to email/call anytime, or (954)644-3731.

There is no such thing as a $200.00/month payment.

Posted on May 14, 2013 at 4:24pm 2 Comments

Back when I started in the car business in 1979, I remember all kinds of people coming into the dealership and looking at $15-20 thousand cars.  There were many of them then. In 1979, the desired payment I heard most often was $200./month.

I remember when we heard this we'd look at each other and wonder what this otherwise solid looking citizen with good credit had been smoking. Back then, just as now, $200. per month…
