    FREE LIVE TRAINING TODAY! Yeah, I know right now that you're probably busier than a mosquito at a nudist colony right now - but as you know, that's coming to an end when the kids head back to school - just like it always does in September. (Please don't be fooled into thinking that 'this year is going to be different', because it's not. History always repeats itself). TODAY (Wednesday July 17th) at noon EST I'm hosting a free live masterclass training to help you prepare => and potentially totally eliminate this and any future slow periods forever. There is no cost and no registration required. Just show up here in this Facebook group prepared to learn. If you can't be with me live, no problem. The training will automatically be recorded and available for a few days. Just come back to the Facebook Group any time 24/7, day or night before Sunday at midnight. I hope to see you there!

  5. CLICK HERE TO JOIN THE SUCCESSFUL SHOP OWNERS FACEBOOK GROUP [transcription] Could Auto Repair Flat Rate Be Dead? TECHNICIAN shortage today is real. Last study that I saw said, for every eight shops that’s looking for a technician, there’s only one tech available so I know many of you watching this are experiencing that same thing. And I’ll also say one thing that I found: most technicians, when I mention flat rate, their cheeks kind of pucker up. They hate it. Why? There’s risk. They’ve been burned before. So often in the technicians starved market, what’s a shop owner left to do but put technicians on hourly or even maybe salary? And what that leads to is, really what I’m going to call an “uninspired performance.” Why? They get comfortable, they’re able to pay their bills without exerting a ton of effort. So what’s a shop owner to do? The answer I’ve uncovered recently in my shop is to have a Win Number. For every single employee. See one of the truths I discovered in my 30 plus years of being a shop owner is that often we don’t get the most out of our employees because we never really sat down and told them what we expect. I know that’s been one of my mistakes. So one of the things that I’ve done recently is I’ve given each employee a weekly Win Number, and that’s why it’s so important. For example, I recently sat down with each of my technicians and shared with them their Win Number. What do I mean by win number? What I expect out of them in parts and labor production for each employee. The numbers are based on my desired technician cost as a percentage of sales. It’s worked so well with my technicians that I now sent it out and established that win number with both my CSR and my service advisor. I’ve got to tell you the results have been incredible. Not only are my sales and profits up through the roof lately, it’s led to believe it or not, happier employees. Why? They drive home at the end of the day or at the end of the week knowing that they hit their goals. Knowing that they’ve contributed to a successful week for the shop and that certainly led to a happier shop owner! So, let me leave you with a question. Does each and every one of your employees on your team clearly know what you expect of them? If your answer is not a resounding YES, it’s time to put a pencil to paper and figure out each team employee or each team members weekly and daily Win.

  9. Fellow shop owners and entrepreneurs, Over the last several months, I've spoken to hundreds of shop owners and managers who have all seemed to have a different issue in their shop, resulting in slow business (or sometimes, no business at all). These issues seem to range from not enough car count, disgruntled employees, inability to turn a profit, can't find a good tech, high turnover, marketing isn't working, and the list goes on. For most of these shops, the conversation I've had with them has either been able to assist in solving their biggest problem, or at the very least, steer them in the right direction. I wanted to take this topic over here to AutoShopOwner and generate a better understanding of the biggest problems that shops are having right now - whether they are based on season, shop placement, or circumstance. Please leave your reply below and I am sure that I'll either be able to help, or steer you in the right direction.

  15. Getting back to the topic... do NOT encourage your customers to give you Yelp reviews as Yelp has had a long-standing view that reviews should happen organically (without any encouragement). Unfortunately, getting the 'organic' reviews is difficult because most folks simply aren't in the habit of posting them. Think about it... How many times have you been thrilled with the service you received at a restaurant or other place of business, yet you never took the time to write a review. They, just like you, deserve the public 'high-fives', but they rarely happen on their own. In my view, you must take a proactive approach if you want to get more and better reviews.
