Quick Tips for Improving Dealership Culture

Quick Tips for Improving Dealership Culture

Car dealers have a terrible reputation. It's such a negative experience for so many that people are electing to make a major purchase like a vehicle fr…

I have a bold prediction. The seeds for the end of the economic recession have been planted. You are living in the beginning of the end of the down economy. Let me explain why I say that. Everywhere I go, people are doing business. Restaurants are packed, stores are busy, bowling alleys have an hour wait for a lane, entertainment venues are packed and people are buying four dollar lattes. We are a spoiled society. Being spoiled help bring us into a recession nd being spoiled will help bring us out. As a society we simply don't like to wait for anything and that includes waiting for a recession to end.

Big dumb companies helped create the recession but it will be smaller, smarter and more agile entrepreneurs that will help bring us out of the recession. Entrepreneurs get busy, take risks, adjust quickly and keep taking action. Entrepreneurs are not limited in ideas, productivity or ability to believe in their ideas and businesses. Entrepreneurs truly understand the abundance of the world and don't live in scarcity based models of existence.

There is more money being printed than ever before in history and that money will flow toward value. Entrepreneurs create value and society willingly rewards them. Perhaps the world needed a wake up call to get busy again and learn a few lessons in the process.

When 911 happened we all watched TV in horror until we just could not take it anymore and the we simply went back to living our lives. That same thing is happening now. People are becoming numb and immune to the "sky is falling" media reports. No matter how hard the media has tried to scare everyone. People everywhere are noticing that they are still alive and that a bad economy won't kill them. So if you are not going to die from a bad economy you might as well get busy with your life and contribute to fixing the economy. That's exactly what is happening now.

Adam Smith and his theory of the "Invisible Hand" behind our economics looks smarter everyday. The economy is churning and more millionaires and billionaires will be created than ever before because of the recession. It's happening right now. You might as well be one of the winners. It's your choice. You can choose to win or choose to lose. Either way, the world will move on.
