Forums: The Power Among Us


Recommended Posts

They say experience is the best teacher. If this is so, there’s probably enough information among automotive shop owners to fill a library the size of the Empire Sate Building. Each day, shop owners conduct business in the trenches of automotive service and repair. They make tough, real-world decisions. If someone has a question about running an automotive business, there’s probably a shop owner out there who knows something on that topic. It’s time we profit from this knowledge.

 

If you have ever been involved with a networking association, a twenty group or a local business council you know the power of brainstorming among your peers. But what if we take this concept and expand it over the Internet to thousands of shop owners? What you would have is a network of shop owners around the world who can share and exchange ideas and best business practices. This is what AutoShopOwner.com is all about.

 

Did you ever have a question about labor rate, or technician’s pay? Or what about advertising ideas or issues on customer service? How valuable would it be to you to be able to find out what other shops are doing around the country? Why not tap into the greatest resource available today…. your fellow shop owners. AutoShopOwner.com has now made all this possible through its online forums.

 

I have no doubt that once you have experienced the power of online forums, the automotive business world will become more exciting and rejuvenate your company.

 

Here’s a list of some of the online forum categories we urge you to participate in:

 

• Paying Your Techs

• Entrepreneurship, Owner’s Responsibility

• Family, Recreation, Personal Growth, Building Wealth

• Marketing and Advertising your Business

      When I started my auto repair shop in 1980, it was typical to work at the shop 50 to 70 hours a week.  More than half of that time was working on cars. I kept that work pace for over a decade. I know that many shop owners of my generation did the same thing. 
      That's all changed now. And for the better.  More shop owners today understand that their leadership roles are critical to their success and the best strategy for the welfare and development of their employees. 
      Jump to the link below for a few quick stats on the different roles of today's shop owner.
