Expanding The Business will take a different set of skills

Joe Marconi


28 years ago I made the choice to become a shop owner. For years prior to starting my business I worked hard to become a skilled mechanic. By the time I was 24 years old I was rebuilding engines, transmissions, solving the most complex electrical problems and became an ASE Master Tech. How did this benefit me when I went into business? NOT VERY MUCH!


How did this help me with expanding the business and creating a new business model? NOT AT ALL!


I opened in 1980 and after struggling for years it dawned on me that being skilled mechanically just wasn’t enough. I needed to become skilled with the mechanics of business.


I needed these new skills to design my new business model. I will outline my steps in future entries and share the process. One thing is certain; you need to have a business mindset to create vision for your company. You need to become a leader. Why? You can’t do it alone. You need great people around you to help you build your empire.


Stay tuned for more!
