  1. In a few upcoming episodes, we're talking about new access restrictions and what we face as an industry. So let me ask this question - what would your reaction be if you lost the ability to obtain even basic data or perform simple functions like a relearn without VSP credentials?
  2. We all have this idea starting out that owning a business is the same thing as having the keys to the building, turning the lights on, and getting to work....in our case, getting to work fixing cars. But as most of us have figured out by now, it's not what it seems from the outside looking in. In my business, one of the toughest challenges I've faced is creating a culture that I can be proud of. Conveying to our people the WHY behind the what. While it took years to build, a realization I had no clue what my "WHY" was, and a number of missteps - in the past few years the cultu
  3. This week David and I had a chance to sit down with a legitimate celebrity. CEO, Shop Owner, Technician, and YouTube Extraordinaire Carolyn Coquillette. We talked about technician training and whether or not EVs will spell the end of our industry as we currently know it. Want to get a glimpse into the mindset of a CEO? One that started as a tech and became a shop owner before leading a successful software company? Then don't miss this episode! https://www.buzzsprout.com/1182755/8041803-asog-podcast-ep-23-thinking-like-a-ceo-with-carolyn-coquillette You can also fi
  4. I do like my snap on tools, autel is really looking like a better value right now in my opinion. We end jumping between autel and snap on for most daily task, the autologic drivepro and programming laptops have been a huge lifesaver in many ways too!
  5. Many of us were once techs, but now hold the management role within our facilities - and as much as we'd love to say we're as technically proficient as we once were, the reality is technology is changing SO quickly that it's tough at times to stay on top of it! Scan tools are being released at a dizzying pace, and the features required aren't what they were 5 years ago! In this episode of the ASOG Podcast, David and I talk with Brandon Dills of Jarhead Diagnostics about just that! Brandon shares his scan tool choices and what tool, if he could choose only one, that he would pu
  6. Did you know there was an organization working behind the scenes to make sure YOU had the access you needed to properly repair the cars in your shop? An organization which works with the auto manufacturers and the tool companies to help improve the challenges we all face daily? While this organization isn't for shop owners, their efforts directly impact our effectiveness! If you'd like some insider information, and a perspective from someone who truly has the ability to see what's coming this episode of the podcast is for you! In this episode Robert Silverstein and I are
  7. It's that time of year again folks! VisionKC is coming up right around the corner. And that means that the annual ASOG dinner is ramping up its registration efforts! The dinner is open for all to attend, regardless of membership to ASOG and all proceeds go to the ASOG scholarship efforts! ASOG will bring another lucky shop owner with 3 years or less in business to VisionKC. This will be the 3rd scholarship the group has provided, but it certainly won't be the last. We look forward to providing scholarships to events all over the country, and working to ensure scholarship winner
  8. Who's attending? We will be there with our team! I know there's folks coming from all over the country. I saw that Carm will be there as will Frank Butkus-Leutz. Would love to meet some of you! www.asteshow.com
