"Forget the Past: Focus on the Future"...sometimes easier said than done. The past is familiar and comfortable. We can also get hung up on our past mistakes, which hinders us from moving forward.

Show Notes:

  • Don't be afraid of change, what we did in the past or how we did it may not work today.
  • Take care of yourself and let go of old habits. Be healthy and reset!
  • Service advisor is now 4 different jobs: customer service rep, parts manager, service manager
  • What is your break even point? It's not the 'cost' of the service advisor position, the biggest expense is what you are currently doing and what you could and should be doing.
  • Everyone hates change, but the only constant in life is change- lean into change.
  • Hiring top talent vs. Creating top talent- Are "A" technicians made?
  • Have grace when someone makes a mistake
  • Don't get analysis paralysis. Don't let past mistakes stop needed changes for the future.
  • Doing something is better than doing nothing.
