found this website today. was looking for info on where everyone else goes for things like shop insurance, management software,suppliers,etc. started this business because i was tired of making the boss money while working long hours with little pay. also have a problem taking orders- especially from those who THINK they know telling those that do know. or even worse- because that's the way we want it done( when there is a better way to do it for both the customer and the tech) started wrenchin at 16 in a vw/porsche dealer. worked at a ford dealer for a while-ran an independent shop as a foreman/mechanic at 20. started my own shop at 25. became an ase master tech at 24...... have 4 bays,2 techs, wife writing at front desk/phones. and me in the back planning my next hunting/fishing trip. (did i do OK?)

Welcome to the site. You will learn a lot from the "old" guys on this site :) I look forward to learning new ideas from you and hopefully be able to offer some input, especially since I did the same thing you did.

Welcome to ASO!

 

I have a few questions for you az mike. How long have you been in business? What are your future goals for your business? AND, the most important question, are you happy with the way things are with your business?

Welcome to the forum. Do you find much time to hunt/fish? What type do you pursue?

we fish mainly for bass locally-go to no. states in the summer for a few weeks. we hunt deer,elk,turkey, javelina, & a few other game birds here. i go to texas for mule deer & aoudad every december. haven't found any place in texas to hunt whitetail i can afford. usually take about 3 weeks total for hunting- about the same or a little more for fishing. sidelined our racing for the last year due to lack of funds.
