It is all about debt.

It is all about debt.


Are you tired of working like a mule and don't see a way out?

Are you tired of always working, missing your family, and your debts keep growing?

Would you like to know why you are always working and never getting ahead?

If you do, read on, but let me warn you, once you know, you cannot put the knowledge back.

It is all about debt.

It all begins with our ancestors settling down. In the beginning they were hunter-gatherers, then they learned to grow crops in small gardens, from small gardens to large planting fields.

Large planting fields require water; planting large fields are very risky endeavors. For example, if there is a drought (it doesn't rain) the fields may not produce any crops! On the other hand, if you have a plentiful harvest, other tribes may come to steal your crops, so you need security people to protect your harvest.

The academics tell us that all this began to be recorded in Mesopotamia about over five thousand years ago. The people in charge of the administration were the priests, it was them that broke the sacred trust and have cursed us with endless wars and debt.

Since ancient times, people have chosen smart people to be our priests, it is believed that they would be smart enough to protect the people and help the people survive famine, natural catastrophes, and whatever destruction Nature would wreak on the people.

The tremendous problem is that priest are people too, and they are susceptible to greed just like anyone else. It is unfettered greed that has led priests to break their sacred vows and oaths to be faithful and condemned all of us to endless wars and death.

See, after a bountiful harvest, the grain would be pooled into the temple's granary, it was the duty of the priests to care for this grain for the community, but not being happy with their pay and having all that grain just sitting there being cared for took a lot of work to keep it safe from spoiling and vermin, they came up with the idea of the people offering to God precious metals as sacrifices/offering. The advantage of storing precious metal like Gold or Silver was that they didn't spoil and did not require as much work to keep them safe as the grain did.

But their greed would not be satisfied, now they had lots of Gold and Silver stored just sitting there so they came up with the idea of lending the Gold and Silver, charging interests on the loans based on the same precious metals. The problem was that as they lend out the precious metal it would leave the temple's safe and if there was a famine, they would not be able to buy grain from other places because the precious metals had been lent out. In other to a appease the people, they would kill someone as a sacrifice to the gods.

So in their greed they came up with a clever solution to that problem, they would lend out the precious metal by receipt, that is to say, they would give the borrower a receipt stating they had a certain amount of precious metal in store at the temple's safe. This way the precious metal would not have to leave the temple's vault. To their delight they found out that they could safely lend up to 10 times the amount of Gold or Silver stored in their vaults!

There is a big issue with this exponential lending though, if there was a famine or catastrophe people would run to the temple to claim the Gold or Silver, but since there was only a small fraction of the metal lent, the people would riot when they could not get their share of the precious metals.

Again, greed let them came up with with a very ingenious solution to their problem, instead of lending receipts for the precious metals, they would lend out bookkeeping entries on their ledgers, this way, people didn't have anything physical to claim, they could charge all the amounts they wanted and charge the interest without having the people panic and show up at the temple to riot.

This has created a monstrous problem for humanity, their system must keep creating debt exponentially to function and the more the debt grows, the more the people have to pay in interest with their labor. This in effect has made slave of us all over the world. The only solution is for the people to understand how the system functions and to push back by not letting them steal their labor by the priests fraud.

In this day and age, in order to conceal the scam, the priest are called bankers and lawyers, but they are the same people that long ago starter to rob our ancestors.

It is through the adjustments of the interest rate that they control how fast they rob all of us. Push back, put clauses in your contracts that let you fight back and not let them take your wealth without a fight.

      What are the 4 words I'm tired of?  "It's a leased car"
      I don't know about you, we don't fold when someone says to us that they are driving a leased car.  No matter if you own your car or lease it, the car has to be safe for the road and for the occupants. 
      They other day, a customer told my service advisor, "I don't believe in ever changing the Cabin Air filter, it's a lease car and leave it alone." My service advisor replied, "Sir, can I at least remove the dead mouse from the filter?"  (See photo below)
      Lesson: You got to point out the WHY!  
      And yes, he not only authorized the cabin filter, but also paid us to remove the blower motor to clean it out and completely sanitize the car. 
      How do you handle customers that tell you, "It's a leased car"

      Looking for ideas or suggestions maybe something that has worked for other shops.
      Again we are a small rural shop, out of the main town about 10 miles. We have several tow companies in the area that will haul by our shop & take to another shop. We mainly do tires but are able to do light mechanic work like brakes, alternators, batteries, starters, etc, etc. I know some customers may request to take it to another shop but I also feel that we are an option that gets over looked & the tow companies may make a little more buy driving on by. 
      My Question is does anyone have a program that they are working with a tow company to bring cars to the shop when a customer does not have a preference. We have a loyalty program that I thought for every dollar the customer we will give the tow company the same value in points. Do we offer to pay the tow bill upon del so they don't have to mess with? How do we know if the tow driver is bringing to us on his own or the customer requested? Open to ideas & maybe it is what it is.
      Thanks

      At the Ratchet + Wrench Conference last month, I met Charlie Marcotte, owner of Amerian Pride Auto in Virginia and the founder of Family Service Day. After doing a little research, I joined the organization.
       
      Family Service Day originated in 2009 with a Williamsburg, Virginia based company, American Pride Auto. The idea was simple: offer support to single parent families and deployed military by offering the gifts and talents we have been given, the ability to repair vehicles, for free. There are really no limitations — if you have desire to make an impact in your community, Family Service Day is a great way to get involved.
       
      Getting involved in your community is the best way to make your shop stand out as the business that cares about people. Plus, it will get your staff involved which will boost morale. You can reach out to your vendors for help with parts and also get major businesses in your area to help sponsor the event.
       
      Shop owners, I recommend that you find out more about Family Service Day. Below is a link for more information:

      This has kind of been a hot topic here lately...how do you guys deal with family and friends? I am trying to run a business, as are the rest of you, how do you deal with people wanting "friend discounts" or family not paying their bills. It seems I try and separate business and personal relationships and in the process end up being the "bad guy". How do you deal with close friends as customers and try to give them a deal but not go out of business by them expecting it every time? Do you just not do business with family or friends?

      I started a business idea & funded everything to get the business going. It has boomed faster then I expected, i still own & run the shop from the outside but I have 2 family members that have grown the shop from the sales & service from the inside & have been paid a weekly check plus sales bonus checks above any local shop. I have the idea that over the long haul I will recoop my investment & time. I have told them the more we grow the more you will earn pretty simple plan. The company continues to grow every month so I'm not worried about location & all the other things that go into what is my business worth. My question is if I would sell to 1 of them how would I figure a fair price. Mind you I personally have yet to gain a profit from the business myself. I draw a small check but it goes toward bills that it took to get the company started that came out of my own pocket. My quick simple thought was Equipment+Inventory+ (Net profitx3)= Selling price to walk away. I would like to know others I feel I should gain on taking the risk & putting my personal family finaces on hold, but also feel I don't want to cause family issues that I was trying to cheat a family member that would say the business would be nothing without them.
      Thanks
