What is Your Passion?

Over the years I’ve had the privilege to meet some amazing individuals. Some that were worth hundreds of millions of dollars and others that financially was challenged. I find it interesting that individuals I find impressive have common characteristics and have nothing to do with money. I remember the day I met John Bowling who had a big wad of tobacco chew in his mouth as he walked…See More

Why is this happening to me?

Several years ago, I wrote a newsletter titled “defining moments” when I talked about how our response to certain events in our life, define who we are as individuals. This was written back in 2009 when car dealers didn’t know if they were even going to be a dealership. Could they order cars and sell to the few customers wanting them. This is a time when the automotive industry was collapsing and…See More

Parts Inventory

Parts inventory may not be a sexy topic however, it could not be any more critical in achieving peak performance in your fixed operations. Many dealerships make the mistake of managing their parts inventories by the number of dollars instead of having what is needed. They believe aged inventory isn’t a real cost and they refuse to discount this below what they paid for it. Today I hope to challenge…See More

Developing Your Future

No one can see the future however, the decisions you make on a daily basis definitely develop the chances for failure or success. Kenny Rogers said in a song “You got to know when to hold them, know when to fold them” illustrating the same concept that the choices we make today develop our future. What we all need to understand is how to sort the clutter we get hit with every day and remove the…See More

Get Going

I wear a Fitbit tracking device that monitors how many steps I take during the day. One of the features in the Fitbit is when I’m sitting for a while it buzzes to encourage me to take so many steps to meet my goal for the hour. Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a similar product that monitored what we are accomplishing in our jobs? Words cannot express what a great joy it is for me to get an email or phone…See More

Are You Asking?

One of the things I’ve been able to do over the years is accepting the fact I’ll never achieve perfection. However, I constantly look at myself seeking areas for me to improve. Many times I share imperfections with the hope that others might learn from my experience developed over the years.  I started Fixed Performance over 15 years ago, and to this day I don’t have a sales department. We don’t make…See More

A Need for Good People

I have written and spoken extensively on the need for qualified technicians. This morning’s news says there are now more job openings than unemployed people nationwide. This means if every job opening was filled there wouldn’t be enough unemployed individuals to fill those positions. Many dealerships haven’t placed importance on compensating their teams well. As the employment levels continue to rise…See More

There’s a lot of discussion lately about who is the greatest of all time in basketball. The great players in any sport work diligently to perform to the best of their ability. In our automotive field, I’m sure we could discuss at great length who the greatest of all time would be as well. Most of us don’t consider ourselves working towards the greatest of all time in what we do. We should all constantly be working on…See More

The Real Reason to Sell Maintenance

In my advisor training, I talk about feature benefit presentations and review labor operation frequencies. The reaction of advisors is similar as I use their numbers individually to estimate potential sales by labor operations. They are amazed when we review just three labor operations that show their potential in excess of a quarter million dollars if they presented feature benefits to…See More
