I went to the AAPEX & SEMA shows last month in Las Vegas. It was awesome. A chance to see the latest & greatest parts and products. I highly recommend the training that is available for shop owners and service advisors. The other shop owners I met were interesting and informed. They brought alot of great ideas to the discussions. Its hard to find this type & caliber of training.

      I have heard from a few shop owners, that they are afraid to send their techs to a training event because they fear that they will be recruited by another shop.  How do you feel about this?
      Perhaps it's time to sit down with your techs and see if all is ok?  People quit for a number of reasons. Should we get ahead of this, if this is a real problem these days?

      Most shop owners I speak to are having banner years. They are as busy as ever and booked with quality, profitable work. 
      With the uncertainty of the economy, will it last? Should shop owners prepare for a downturn?
