 Ms. Saleh is the author of a few non-fiction books and one commissioned, Dating and the Pursuit of Happiness (DRM Net Inc., 1998), which helped people understand their personality “type” in a relationship and provided practical advice for pursuing a happy, fulfilling love life. Her last book, It IS All About You (Balboa Press, Hay House, 2018), which addresses lifelong questions in the search for meaning.

Key Talking Points:

  • Grieving- experience loss (person, job, business, etc), shock, denial, anger, depression, acceptanceGrieving is not a linear process- goes in and out of all stages of grief
  • Separating yourself from what met your needs that is now gone. What do you do next?
  • Losing a job- grieving about the job and the people they worked with
  • No set grieving timeline- find strength and consider what you can offer to a prospective employer?
  • Networking- most helpful during the grieving processReach out to people for comfort, advice, support and brainstorm next career change
  • Develop a marketing plan for yourself 
  • Always a positive and negative way too look at everything in lifeOpportunity to reevaluate your career- how happy have you been? Is this an opportunity to pursue something else that you would enjoy more? What jobs are related to what you were doing?
  • We all have something to give, you have value, you have worth- what are your talents? What are your strengths and gifts? Self-analysis- sit with someone who knows you/used to work for/colleague/peer and listen to their input 
  • Tony Robbin’s website DISC assessment, Clifton Strengths Finder Test, Birkman Test
  • Support of your spouseLean on them and accept support, don’t hide the loss of job because of ‘failure’ mentality 
  • Acceptance and mobilization- move forwardMeet with someone for coffee, talk about your ideas

      Key Talking Points
      Developing customer experience- the customer is more willing to pay more if the experience meets the criteria to warrant the price. Customer service is different than the experience. Big things are expected (fix the car and have some complimentary amenities), what about the little things (using first name basis, water bottles with logo in the cup holder when ready). You need to have the entire team involved. Treating internal (employees) and external (customers) with high value. You don’t need money to be kind and nice to others. How does the building look? What is the smell when walking in? How are employees dressed? Do they have nametags? When organizations were asked to rate their quality of Customer Experience, 80% believe they are delivering a superior experience. This is compared to only 8% of customers who believe they are receiving a great Customer Experience  GLUE- giving little unexpected extras    Number one priority is to treat customers like kings and queens- they are the most important person that day.  Relationship business- want customers to keep coming back the rest of their lives, they are not an interruption in your day You’re being compared to a customer’s last great experience (inside and outside the industry). What is a good experience for them? Ask them! Technical knowledge means nothing to customers- they don’t know and want to know when the car will be done. Technology won't replace the experience a customer gets, it is a tool.  Overpromise and under deliver- customers remember that more than the price of services What’s your favorite restaurant? Is it based on price or comfort and service? Every customer will talk about a good or bad experience to others You make sales with conversation, not email or texts Don’t chase money, money will follow with exceptional service “We don’t fix cars, we take care of people” Raise your standards and communicate them to your team, doesn’t happen overnight. Have a plan and procedure until it is engrained. Make everyone accountable with clear expectations.

      Hope all are doing well, I have been absent for a while , life gets in the way at times. I have ask you guys questions many times and the answers have always been superb. This is not a question more like a huge decision I have to make. 
       My store was built in 1958 , just a square building with 4 outside bays across front with large roof system  and tech shop we added 10 years ago in the back with 5 stalls and 3 lifts. I have been there since I was 15 years old and now I am 60. We have always been squeezed with our corner lot, well 2 weeks ago the business next door which has 290 feet on the highway plus a very old body shop and a very old house that is liveable came up for sale. I have a contract on the property for 250k. But dang I wish I was 50 and not 60 years old. It lays out perfect where I could add 2 more open stalls and give anoher tech 3 new stalls down the side and tons of parking, I have none. We are busting at the seams,I need the room. no parking heck I cannot get all the work out of there daily. I can get some residule income from the one house, already had 2 guys ask me about rent on it. We have just had a huge brand new county jail built 2 blocks from us, Prettiest jail I have ever seen ,LOL, anyway guys I am having a hard decision on pulling the trigger , one thing is my age second thing I assume those  5 bays will help my bottom line tremdously. As you know with that comes a few more employees, new writer and probaly 2 new techs. Maybe I am apprehensive because I have never expanded like that. Has any of you guys done this or better yet gone through it, if so tell me the good the bad and the ugle. My employees are great but I will need at least 1 writer and 2 or 3 oil/tire/ tech trainy. Techs are hard to find today , I never thought I would be stealing other techs from other stores but I guess it is the way of th world. Any advie or help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks Guys, David

      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?
