Key Talking Points

    • Virtual bookkeeping- software is accessed virtually, receipt management via email/scanner/text
    • CPA/Business Coach/Bookkeeper- “Where the magic happens.” The bookkeeper gets financial reports ready and organized to pass along to the CPA and has communication with the business owner and coach on weekly/monthly reports. Are there variables that are affecting your bottom line? Is it your culture? Is it an employee?
    • Know the breakeven point- know how much money you need to generate to pay the expenses. Two types of expenses – fixed and variable. Fixed expenses - constant every month like rent and mortgage. Variable – vary from month to month but are usually fairly predictable, parts cost, labor cost. Know all the expenses, including what to pay the owner.  Example: Shop A has expenses of around $50k per month. we know parts/labor needs to be around 50/50, so we know we need to sell 25k in parts and 25k in labor.
    • Do you make a profit on parts and labor? Parts profit needs to be parts 50% markup. Labor profit needs to be labor rate/labor costs at 70%.
    • Review the cash flow- #1 killer of any business. What is happening to my cash, where is it going? Why isn’t it all on the P&L? The statement of cash flows brings those two reports together and shows how much is coming and how much is going out. Net change in cash- if it’s negative then the business is spending more cash than what it’s bringing in
    • Have a cash reserve- equipment breaks, sales dip, employees need to be hired, natural disasters. How many months should a shop have? 3-6 months

      Key Talking Points
      It started month 1 of the pandemic  Brand names won’t risk quality  Every day is a new challenge for manufacturers  When is it back to normal? Recast the question “when does it get better?” Improving fill rates and collaboration up and down the supply chain Data planning is essential for forecasting and making better decisions  Allocation- always have the “recipe”  Pricing- packaging costs, inflation, supply/demand, raw material pricing by SKU. More questions are being asked which requires more pricing knowledge and transparency.  Container pricing- $1,500 to 18,000. Airfreight has also increased.  Economic trends- travel is increasing It’s a demand problem not a supply chain problem- it is a good problem, heavy dependence on the automotive industry.  Connect with the show:

      Key Talking Points
      No prices over the phone- This can be challenging at first. Giving prices can be wrong or misleading depending on the vehicle. Instead explain why prices can vary, ask them to come in first, explain warranty, DVI’s, rental cars, etc. Vet the customer- are they looking for the cheapest price? Not every customer is right for your business. Performing the best digital inspections so your customers don't have to google anything and be consistent. Continue to simplify the writing so someone who doesn’t know anything about cars can understand and learn about their vehicle. Add “what happens if you don’t do XYZ” Write and edit inspections/customer reviews with your whole team for team buy-in. Getting customers to fix their "old" cars- list pros and cons of getting new/used cars. Make the investment and let them know the vehicle will be maintained properly, the laundry list won’t grow and be behind. Selling Maintenance- oil changes, fluid changes etc. It is an easy win once everyone has to buy in for selling maintenance. Educate customers on why fluid changes are important. Cheaper to change fluid than change apart Making customers feel confident about repairs- texting DVI, lifetime warranty, “what to expect” card at dropoffs Connect with the show:

      The future of the aftermarket depends on having an apprentice program at every shop in North America. The more you know and hear apprentice stories, the closer you are to start you own.
      Link HERE to all apprentice episodes.
      The Panel: Garrett Geisler, Shop Foreman, Dynamic Automotive, MD Ricky Shontere, Apprentice Graduate, Technician, Dynamic Automotive, MD Dwayne Myers is a partner in Dynamic Automotive in the greater Maryland area. Dwayne invests time in the industry with the Auto Care Association and serves on the education committee with CCPN (Car Care Professional Network). Dwayne was recently honored as one of only 17 outstanding individuals that qualified for the prestigious 2017 World Class Technician Award presented by The Auto Care Association and ASE. He is very passionate about hiring and sustaining a strong and engaged team. Listen to Dwayne’s previous episodes HERE. Key Talking Points Create the environment you desire- businesses don’t run themselves, people (leaders) run businesses. You don’t always get what you want, but you always get what you choose. Are you choosing to be in the weeds of business every day or do you want your business to run without you? Determine what you value and your culture will follow. Transitions in the business- be an owner, you hired employees to do a job so let them. Train them well so they can leave, but treat them so well that they don’t want to. Don’t micromanage. What I’ve learned- learn from everyone no matter what their status or level is. Everyone learns based on their experience, knowledge, and skill. Allow people to grow, owners are often the biggest obstacle. Think about the vision, cast the vision, and let your employees make the vision. lifted burdens- watch people grow from where they are to where they want to be.  Don’t create more work for you as an owner, grow employees. Employees who lead- should be taught the responsibility they have of leadership no matter their position. They will continue to grow. Your business is only as strong as the weakest employee. They need to reflect your values.  Your responsibility as an owner- coachability, valuing people, mentors, communicating vision Leadershift- based on the 15 laws of growth written by John Maxwell. 15-week course for employees of businesses. Grow employees in their current roles. Owners choose who their leaders will be based on current behavior. Leadership is learned, everyone has the ability.
