Join Me as I outline my plan for expanding my shop


Recommended Posts

I started my blog last week, Joe's Blog. It was suggested to me that I share my experience of constructing a new building, which will add 4 bays to our existing 6. I will outline the entire process, starting from 2 years ago when I first had this vision to expand. We broke ground just last month. The events and struggles were a real eye-opener for me and I hope you get both enjoyment and valuable information from reading about my project.

 

Please join me while I re-create the journey from conception to construction.

Thanks to all for the positive response to my expansion. I will update my blog this weekend and as soon I can I will start to post photos. The foundation for the building was completetd last week so there is not much to see at this point, but It might be fun to watch the project unfold.

 

So stayed tuned for more info and photos

 

Thanks, Joe

      Did you know that 70% of change initiatives with new programs/systems will fail due to a lack of leadership commitment?  I want to focus on mentor/mentee and apprenticeship programs, which are most critical to our industry’s survival.  You can lose your way without processes, procedures, and accountability to mold your apprentice into your shop. Too much talk and not enough action is the breakdown.  Luckily for you, my guest, Marc Brune, has a program focused on helping businesses develop entry-level technician mentoring programs with the tech shortage in mind.  Marc Brune, Business Development Manager, mentormentee.com  Key Talking Points
      3 key people- manager, mentor, mentee People are looking for a plan and someone to help along the path Preparing for business before entry-level candidate comes on board- do you have the right culture for a positive mentor-mentee atmosphere? Who will be the best person to step in (manager) and mentor (can multitask) Mentor- teaches not only automotive but also speaks the culture of the shop  Mentoring vs. teaching- teaching is 1-way street, and mentoring is a 2-way street Assessment- 15 different categories, ranked in order of importance Educate- set expectations for each role Execution- have mentee and plan Plan- having a repeatable plan  Online course specific for each role- 3 hours each Facilitating growth- offers ASE task lists used in ASE accredited program Soft skills- customers are a part of your business Setting goals- mentor and mentee can set specific goals with dates and be able to adjust   Recruit- “the important things are never urgent, and the urgent things are never important.” Have the recruiting mindset.    Execute- daily on the job training plan for mentees and track progress Analyze and reward- get the data flowing on how the mentor/mentee progressing. Build incentives for growth with both mentor/mentee. Don’t let your mentors go red in their pay. mentormentee.com

      If only we had a crystal ball to peak at the next 5 years. As a shop owner, you might still be booked out 2-3 weeks, but with gas prices, inflation, the great resignation, interest rates, and new and used car costs, what do you need to pay attention to in the short term to continue to be profitable and relevant?  Chris Cotton, AutoFix Auto Shop Coaching, Chris Cotton Weekly Blitz Podcast Hunt Demarest, CPA, Paar Mellis and Associates, Business by the Numbers Podcast Joe Marconi, Executive Council Member, Elite Worldwide.

      Your employees should be your greatest strength. Invest in THEM to secure their future and the future of your business. Connect the dots with their goals and the company’s goals. Don’t ignore the people in your shop. Don’t get complacent. Productivity, efficiency, and effective labor rate are the 3 most important numbers in your business Systems, operations, and procedures. SOPs will set you free! Important to train the whole team on “what right looks like” so that everyone is rowing the boat in the same direction. It’s not about the one, it’s about the all. TEAMWORK makes the dream work. The automobile service industry is undergoing a literal revolution. The boomers are increasingly aging out, the number of independent competitors is shrinking fast, being a future top-shop will require much more business sophistication in the future, and the third-party investor feeding frenzy has begun. Smart owners need a strong business strategy, steeped in their legacy and exit strategy, to lead through these changes rather than just playing catch-up. Baby boomers retiring- 80-85% aren't worth making a private equity investment Shop owners coming from outside the industry- thinking from a business perspective  Elevating the industry through training and coaching Profit vs cash- cash brings personal spending habits into play, preserving cash Will it slow down? It matters what you do during the good times that will help you survive the bad times. Don’t let car count carry you. Redefine who you are and honed in

      The word OSHA makes many shop owners cringe. 
      I was lucky enough years back to have my insurance agent suggest I perform a voluntary OSHA inspection. A private company did it at the time.   
      They found tons of violations; some we knew would be flagged, but most we did not. 
      Have you ever had an OSHA inspection? And what can shop owners do to protect themselves?

      There's a lot of talk these days about a 4-day work week.  Some discussions include the entire shop only being opened for 4 days, other discussions talk about rotating employees to work only four days, while the shop remains open for 5 or 6 days. 
      I am on the fence about this. I do see the benefits, but it's not as easy as some may think.
