    • Remember Shop Owners: Everyone Is Watching You

      Perhaps one of the most difficult things to do as a shop owner is to consistently present yourself with a positive and upbeat attitude. Let’s face it; your life is filled with issues; from bounced checks to complaining customers, to comebacks and employee problems.   But the fact is you are the boss and the leader of your company. And everyone is watching you. What you do and what you say is seen and heard by everyone. As the leader, you set the tone, the mood and morale of the shop.   If you are negative, everyone around you will be. One of the best ways to lead is to set an example by being positive at all times. I know this may be hard at times, but to walk around with a doom and gloom attitude will actually makes things worse.   People react to the emotions of the leader. It’s far better for the long term success of the company to have the people in your shop feeding off your positive energy, then being brought down by doom and gloom.

    • The Holidays; Take Time Off and Enjoy

      The Holidays; Take Time Off and Enjoy   As we begin holiday season, it’s important to take the time and focus on the things in life that we can never put a price tag on; family and friends. Too many of us get caught up in the day to day tasks of business and we sometimes forget what life is all about. I urge everyone this holiday season to set aside time for family, for friends and for yourself.   Put down the wrenches, put away the spreadsheets and reports and spend time enjoying the world around you. Your business and your work are an important part of life, but should serve to enrich your life, not consume it. Time is a precious, but limited commodity; let us not waste any of it.
