Are you under-living your life?

By Ron Henson on Jun 8, 2013

Are you under-living your life?

 

How do we release all of the potential inside of us?

 

1st: What is potential?

         First Nature: What you inherited through the genes passed down to you from your parents, grandparents, etc

 

         Second Nature: Everything you have learned. All of the knowledge, skills, the habits, all of the information you have stored, is a part of your potential.

 

         Third Phase: Very simply, your inner desire, your aspirations, your goals.  Something inside of you that wants you to become more than you are.  The most important factor in this is EMOTION.  You can have a desire to do something, and you can have the abilities, but you can’t seem to get yourself to do it.  YOU CAN’T RELEASE YOURSELF.

                  WHAT ARE THE THINGS THAT ARE HOLDING US BACK FROM ACHIEVING MUCH MORE THAN WE ARE CURRENTLY ACHIEVING?

Expect more, be more, do more, achieve more......in life and in your career!

  • Breakouts In Your Back Pocket - How Podcasts Can Educate Your Team All Year Long

    With what is affectionately known as "Conference Season" in full swing, you can hear a lot of talk about "which conference are you going to? As I type this - the DrivingSales Executive Summit is under 2 weeks away.  It runs October 12-14 at the beautiful Bellagio in Las Vegas.  I'll be there -- and if you're going (why wouldn't you? seriously?) - make sure you look me up - I'd love to say "hi!" With an agenda chock-full of the best and brightest both in and out of the industry, this is a "can't miss" conference. (In a bit of shameless-self-promotion - if you are going to DrivingSales, make sure you clear your schedule for Monday at 3:25 PM & swing by my breakout session with my General Manager, Andy Guelcher to learn how Dealership Culture Directly Relates to Profitability). But what happens after "Conference Season" is over? Where do you as an automotive professional turn for cutting edge information? One place is the quarterly DrivingSales Innovation Guide. But if you're anyth...Read post

  • Grass roots advertising

    This year we decided as a dealership to become more involved in events in the community. We came up with a budget for this and jumped in! We are sponsoring the local auto race track and participating in other events in the community. We have participated in 5k events as well as relay for life. we try to do one event per month. We feel that this grass roots adveertising is worth so much....not to mention that it is nice to be involved with events that are good for the community.  We also tie this in to our social media efforts as well. We always have some type of game that people can play and win different prizes.  I am looking to the driving sales community for more ideas for this type of marketing. ...Read post

  • Good Customer Service?

    Is your car dealership doing everything possible to keep your customers satisfied and happy?  Now, more than ever, your reputation for building relationships and retaining customers may depend on your company’s focus on providing the very best customer service. How is good customer service defined?  There isn’t a clear cookie-cutter answer to the question on what makes up “good” service, however bad service is easier to define.  In your dealership, an extended time to receive a price on a vehicle, a phone that goes unanswered, or an email inquiry that takes hours, not minutes for a reply, could fall in the category of poor, or at least less than satisfactory customer service. And something as simple as giving the customer upfront, factual information the first time could mean the difference between a good customer service experience and a bad one. Would you believe that failing to properly respond to a customer could haunt your car dealership for years to come? Accordin...Read post

  • Has chat really jumped 75% in two years?

    ~~The number of car dealers with live chat software on their websites has jumped dramatically in the past couple of years. According to dealermarketshare.com, about 37% of the 34k dealer websites had code from a chat provider, up more than 75% over 24 months. This increase can be attributed to many factors, including greater consumer acceptance, word of mouth at dealer meetings and conferences, more aggressive marketing by chat providers, and a growing number of providers joining the market. (see full graphic at http://www.carchat24.com/blog/automotive-business-news/live-chat-auto-dealer-websites-skyrockets-sold-units-still-primary-measure/ ) Quality of service provided through chat is critical, but dealers also want to choose a vendor based on how well the chat product helps close car deals – and there is a significant difference in performance. So how do dealers know which provider to choose?There are several ways to perform due diligence. These include: Discussion and vendor revi...Read post
