How to find a successful shop owner to shadow?

Recommended Posts

We started a shop about 2 months ago and I'm looking for some wisdom from the experts! How do I find a shop owner willing to share their wisdom?

-How would I find the successful shops?

-How do I approach them and ask?

-Would would be willing to let someone shadow you?

-How much time do you think is fair to ask for?


A little background on me: I started a same day delivery service with my wife 8 years ago, we sold/merged to a larger outfit, I stayed on and then I started a garage to maintain our own fleet of 30 vehicles (not as a business but at cost), then opened a separate auto repair business to further leverage our resources that we already had in place (tech's, experience, tools, etc).


I fully intend for this venture to be very successful. I have dreams of duplicating the system and developing entrepreneurs in house to go start their own shops as a franchise.


Any thoughts/advise are much appreciated. Our shop for those interested is called "That Auto Shop". We only have a facebook page so far: http://www.facebook.com/thatautoshop


Thank you! Scott Kristiansen
