The Game Face

August has been probably the slowest month I have seen so far.  Although i have only been in Sales for about six months, I can tell when things are bad.  And this month is just bad. Our building is undergoing a facelift, and this week they finally put the front face of the building on, and I must say it looks awesome.  I am convinced that the contruction played a big role in this month's inactivity. Now that we actually look like a dealership again, I have high hopes for September.  I did a…
