Leaving radio on in the shop?

Recommended Posts

I was talking a few months ago to an old-timer who has been building race engines for 50 plus years and he mentioned something about never turning his radio off in the shop. I am wondering if anyone has ever heard the significance or reason behind this? You could bearly hear the radio was on but thought it was interesting.

      It's no secret that prices are going up around us. From food, gas, insurance, taxes, etc.  This is another reason to sit down and crunch your numbers.  Review your expenses line by line and see what increases you have had in the past few months, and the past year or so. 
      Then,  make price increases in labor and other areas to ensure you are profitable. The long-term success of your business depends on it. 
      What have you seen in your area with regard to increase in expenses?

      Think you're too young to start planning for retirement? Think again! 
      How many times have we heard about a shop owner that had an unfortunate accident, serious illness or even worse, death?
      Make it one of your goals to starting planning for your exit, and for life after auto repair, no matter how young you are. Create your exit strategy. Speak with an attorney, a financial advisor, a business coach.  Make sure that not only you, but your family, will be taken care of should something catastrophic happens. 
      Life sometimes throughs us a curve ball. Be prepared!

      In the 4 decades as a shop owner, my number one way to have a smooth running shop is to surround yourself with the right people.
      I am interested in hearing from other shop owners. What's your opinion on how to run a smooth running operation?
