If I had a checkbook I’d be dangerous !

 
When I started in the Automotive Industry 25 years ago…..
I already had the drive to succeed…..
I had a full life up to that point…..
A life with no regrets-
I wouldn’t change anything if I could go back and do it over…….
I am a “baby boomer”
The 60’s…..
The 70’s…..
The 80’s…..
That was a hell of a time to be alive!
But…..
Sex and drugs and rock and roll as a mantra is unsustainable…..
Any one of the three will kill you eventually…..
Not to mention the fact they’ll keep you flat broke…..
So…..
Time to get serious about this car buying thing …..
And take over the world – right?
All I need to do is buy a car and sell it for MORE…..
Lather, rinse , repeat…..
Did I mention that I was broke?
If I only had a checkbook I’d be dangerous…..
Well……
I didn’t…..
But that’s the beauty of this business…..
You can MAKE one…..
You can do your homework, appraise a vehicle, know what to pay and know ABOUT what you can sell it for ….
If you only have $500.00 to start with, you can turn it into $1000.00…..
You just need the discipline to keep the $1000.00 and grow from there…..And before you know it…..
You’ll have that “dangerous checkbook”…..
 
 

This is the script

 
We’re right where we want to be……
This week saw our efforts turn into a sales rate of 91%…..
Wow…
Good way to start off the new year!
Now is the time to ramp up the effort…..
The spring market will be in full swing shortly…..
Time to make some MONEY…..
And…..
The black box we’re building got a new addition…..

It should be fun…..
We hope to get some to join us on our “Dealership Hacking” podcast coming in March……
 
 
Auctions here in the Northeast are in our annual ‘car drought’…..
Coming off a traditionally slow December, the consignment numbers are down……
But the demand is picking up…..
The buyers are coming out…..
Our live auction sales percentage is at 64%…..
We were able to chat with some exporter customers and update what’s on their shopping list…..
Now we are armed with more weapons as we brave the cold and snow at sealed bids…..
As we appraise each new offering on our cellphones from ACV auctions…..
As we head from stop to stop hunting for recent trades…..
 
 
Online attention to our listings on OVE.com is also picking up…..
Each individual listing is getting it’s share of views…..
Our sales percentage is at 27%……
As we dig out from yesterday’s Nor Easter, I find it amazing anything is selling…..
It helps to fuel the excitement…..
I gotta find more cars!
So…..
Are You Ready To Wake Up Everyday and KNOW What Every Car Is Worth ?
I thought so…..
 
Out for now…..
