The Business Side of Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Health

Carrie Hemphill made a bold move in planning the Digital Marketing Strategies Conference. She brought in inspirational speaker and fitness expert Todd Durkin as a keynote speaker to a theater full of knowledge hungry dealers. Yet Durkin appeared well received.

Automotive retail has always been a draining business, but there used to be down time. Many of those in attendance remember the days of waiting for the next up. Today, there is always a bundle of additional things that can be done to improve sales and profitability. More than ever, it is all to easy to neglect one’s mental, physical, and spiritual health. It certainly didn’t hurt that Durkin gave the kind of energetic and candid presentation that retailers tend to embrace, but the subject matter certainly seemed to hit a cord.

How do you maintain your physical, mental, and spiritual health? Is what you are doing now sufficient for the best decision-making, work efficiency, and quality of life?

Lindsey- thank you for the post, and I am so happy to hear that Todd Durkin had such a positive effect on you and other attendees at DMSC. Your last two questions of this post say it all, and I think that everyone should take a moment to answer them, and more importantly, act on them in order to better themselves and their business.
