We all have this idea starting out that owning a business is the same thing as having the keys to the building, turning the lights on, and getting to work....in our case, getting to work fixing cars.
But as most of us have figured out by now, it's not what it seems from the outside looking in.
In my business, one of the toughest challenges I've faced is creating a culture that I can be proud of. Conveying to our people the WHY behind the what.
While it took years to build, a realization I had no clue what my "WHY" was, and a number of missteps - in the past few years the culture of my facility has begun to develop....and in many ways, it develops itself now through the amazing team we have in place.
This episode of the podcast is titled "How to keep talent from leaving" but in it's entirety this episode is much more than keeping talent from leaving... It's some of the fundamentals one of the greats of the business, Dwayne Myers, uses daily in his business.
I know David and I both gained a ton of knowledge from this chat, so take a listen and let us know your thoughts on culture and going a step above for your staff.
It's also worth noting that those of us who are patrons got quite a laugh out of what's become quite a running joke with David - It should be noted that this is the first time David hasn't edited out the jokes about the banner or the beaver......
Speaking of patrons..... We'd love to have you as a patron of the channel. It's the patrons who make the podcast and all of the great offerings within ASOG possible. It's the subscribers and those of you who like or share the podcast that has shown us the hard work is worth it!

One of the best ways to attract and keep great talent is being a well-equipped shop. There’s nothing more frustrating for a good technician than not having the right tool to do the job properly.
That’s especially true of diagnostic equipment.
But, what is the right tool? There are so many options out there, it's difficult to know what the best value is for repair shops today.
To discuss this David & Lucas are joined by Brandon Dills of Jarhead Diagnostics.
Make sure you listen out for Brandon’s pick for THE scan tool to have right now in your repair shop.
Find out more about Brandon at https://www.jarheaddiag.com/.

We are in desperate need of techs. I tried Indeed and was very dissatisfied with the "talent" they sent us. I am considering Find A Wrench they post on Indeed as well as Zip Recruiter and some 90 other companies as well as social media. Has anyone tried them or ACT Auto Staffing?
