I try to spend at least a little time each day reading forums and blogs from outside the auto industry because I think there is a lot to learn from other business communities.  Today, I found an interesting question up for discussion, and would like to pose the same to you.


What would it take for you to leave the auto industry?


More money? More interesting work? Better benefits, or hours?


And reversely (and I think I'll get more responses to this question than the previous),


What are the reasons you wouldn't leave the auto industry?


The community?  Your love of cars?  The thrill of the sale?


Regardless of how you initially got into the industry, I would argue that those that stay do so because they truly love something about their job.  Working in a car dealership isn’t for just anyone, so what is it about the auto industry that you wouldn't give up for the world, and what could a different industry offer you that you just wouldn't be able to turn down?

Ali, there are those who have a "job" and those who have a "career;" those of us who love this industry are still standing in our chosen career after these tough few years. there is no other career I would rather be doing, sure it's tough, but that's what I love about it. We get to create...we create a new horizon, a new frontier, and a new future.  In short, we create our own destiny every day we hit the black top.
