"Bobby...thanks for the encouraging words. A consistent attitude of thanksgiving and gratitude is a struggle for me. I can't do it. Moment by moment dependence on Jesus is the only answer for me. As you see, I am also working on that... Ron "

A man had a brain tumor removed and was being discharged later that day.  He needed some powerful healing drugs for his recuperation,  As my companion carried one ice chest full of drugs and I the other to the patient's room, it…See More

Some Other Ideas - Change is Easy. Transformation Makes for Long-Term Success

If you're a dealer not satisfied with current performance, these ideas may be useful. Honesty and Ethics RankingsA November 2010 Gallup poll asked consumers to rate the level of honesty and ethics of various professions. Nurses, military officers and pharmacists were at the top. Lobbyists and car sales people were on the bottom. (See graph below) There are many highly honest, ethical and good dealers in the business, yet these polling results have remained consistent for years. …See More

Past Experience - Power or Prison

Posted on March 18, 2011 at 8:32pm 1 Comment

I was fortunate to sit in a dealership advertising planning meeting. Participants included the Dealer Principal, GSM, Internet Manager and representatives from the ad team.

Thanks for signing up Ron. I look forward to our talk next week. Please pass this site on to the other guys. I need their votes. We've made up a lot of ground this week but are still 26 votes behind. Remind them that after they register, they must still go back and vote.

Take care,

Dave
