Episode 33 - You're Never Gonna Keep Us Down

(Psst…there’s promo codes for some upcoming auto dealer conferences at the bottom of this!)

We made it one-third of the way on our journey to episode 100. We’re on the path. We’re IN process.

It should be no surprise to anyone in the automotive industry that things are changing…again. As a matter of fact, if you don’t understand and embrace the nature of the change, it might be a great time to find an exit. The truth is, it’s not just automotive, it’s life.

Today we talk about being committed to the process, because that is where it really goes down. That is where mindset matters most. It is where perspective is the difference between winning and losing. You know… CLARITY.

We talk about this and some interesting developments from the Cars.com UX which takes some cues from dating sites in the never ending search for the perfect process of searching for a new car.

Thanks for being a part of the process with me and the rest of the Dealers Compressed community.

The goal is the road.

Here is my current itinerary:

October 21-23: Driving Sales Executive Summit, Las Vegas : (Speaking on the 21st at 4pm)
PROMO CODE: DALYVIP for $100 off!

January 24-27: NADA Convention, San Francisco: (Speaking: Time and location TBD)

DID YOU KNOW that the Dealers Compressed Podcast started as a creative visual production around the book “Like I See It”. We created it independently to give auto dealers an accessible way to engage the book and hopefully spread the timely message to their staff and others in the industry. We hope that YOU will use it in your dealership!

It’s engaging.

It’s FREE.

Its right HERE!
