You may have been wondering what has been going on with AutoShopOwner.com this week. Nothing but messages and errors saying that the site is down. Yes, we have been down all week, since Sunday morning.

 

In a nutshell, our server where AutoShopOwner.com resides, had a fatal hardware malfunction Sunday morning. The hard drive crashed and up until now, has been mostly unrecoverable. Fortunately, we were able to revert to a backup of our site that we had. The backup however was also incomplete and from an earlier date, so we opted to wait and do our best to recover ALL the data, up to the point of failure.

 

We are confident that this has now been done to the best of our ability and have decided to open AutoShopOwner.com back up. This is pretty much the worst case scenario for a website, which is why it is so important to back up data. Even with management systems in your shops, you most likely have a backup in place and are checking it periodically. Hard drive failures are unpredictable and can happen any time. You can only protect yourself by having backups of your data.

 

We apologize for the inconvenience and hope that you missed the community while it was down.

      For the first time in a VERY LONG time, I see a lot of positive news with regard to labor rates.  More and more shop owners and managers are crunching their numbers and increasing their labor rates to better ensure their companies achieves a profit and also to be able to pay their employees what they deserve. 
      Profit is needed in order to build for the future and to be able to attract quality people. 
      I really think that this is perhaps the best time in our recent history to revisit your labor rates and bottom line and adjust your rates accordingly.  
      Have you adjusted your labor rates recently, or plan on it?

      As a former auto shop owner, one of the things that kept me up at night was not knowing enough about all the labor laws and human resource regulations.  
      How do you keep up with all the changes to the labor laws and human resource regulations in your state?

      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?

      According to studies from Northwestern, Birdeye, and other companies, people are most influenced by reviews with an average rating of 4.2 to 4.5 stars out of 5 — making this the ideal average star rating for purchase probability.
      Having all 5-star Google reviews can work against you.  People may not trust a company with all 5-star reviews. No business is perfect, and you cannot please everyone. Also, people make mistakes.
      Having negative reviews is not the end of the world, in fact, it may actually help your business.

      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.
