What can you do with a 2.5 hour car service appointment

You could go sit in the dealer’s comfortable lounge, drink coffee, and watch cable shows all morning. Or you could find a table in the showroom, connect to their Wi-Fi network, and:

  2. Brainstorm on your current business and decide what to change.

  3. Let your brainstorm produce a new video to send to your prospective clients.

  4. Video interview some of the dealer personnel who have great attitudes about how they got them.

“Things turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out.” John Wooden
