Hello, all!

Just wanted to say hi..

It's been a long road... Been in this business 24 years.. Owned my own shop (5 bay) for 13 years.. Realized going from an driveability auto mechanic/tech to a business man took some business education courses (Passion doesn't always cut it!)

Hired both ATI and Management Success over the years (Edit this, please, if we aren't supoosed to name drop) so I believe I have a handle on the ever-changing marketing aspects of the business.. Love to share my ideas and receive new ones from others..

Gonzo how big is that bass in your avatar?

That I'm afraid to say is a small one... I think it was about 4 lbs. It came out of my pond in front of my house. I've got a 4 acre pond on my property. I've caught two bigger than that. Both close to 9 or 10 pounders... I'll have to post some pictures of the pond. You can link to my wifes website, I think she has a few photos there.

 

I'll post some here this weekend. It's the best part of living out in the country... (out of town that is) private fishing anytime I want. 5 minutes from a golf course...5 minutes from resturaunts, and a billion miles from the shop.... ah... the serenity...

Gonzo, Where did you catch that bad-boy??

      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?

      There seem to be mixed opinions on what Business System is the best. And also, not all business systems fit a particular repair shop model.
      There are a lot of new players in the past few years: Auto Leap, Protractor, Teckmetrics, Shop Boss, Shop Monkey, and more.
      Are you happy with your system?  What features are important to you?
