Someone else’s vehicle to steal and nothing really beats keeping your vehicle inside your locked garage i am amazed at how many people use their garage to store a few dollars worth of junk that they really don’t want inside their house and leave sixty eighty hundred thousand dollars worth of vehicles in the driveway just put a sign on your lawn please steal

I know gm and i do they’ll use the next year to bring their own flavor to the electric pickup now for some musings with the trainer yesterday i took a stroll down memory lane with you and talked about the first new vehicle that i sold there was actually a little bit more to that story that i should share it’s important because it helped define the way i learned

To look at each customer and each relationship with those customers as i continued on in my career both as a sales consultant and as a manager it also helped define my career as a trainer when mr johansson picked up his brand new chrysler cordoba from me the day after i sold it to him there was a lot going on in those days the salesperson did everything no f

And i office so i was pretty distracted while trying to make sure i got all the paperwork right license plates on the car car cleaned and ready so when he showed up signed the last of the paperwork and walked around the vehicle i wasn’t paying as much attention to him as i probably should have been we shook hands he got into the car i immediately headed for

The office to drop off the paperwork and i really wanted to post that sale on the board as i was steaming through the showroom my mentor grabbed me by the arm turned me around and said you don’t want to miss this he walked me over to the window and pointed to mr johansson as he was driving out of the lot just as the cordova’s rear wheels dropped down onto the

Road from the sidewalk my mentor made a rolling wave motion with his hand and let out a very satisfied we stood there and watched the taillights until they disappeared then he looked at me and said now didn’t that feel great and he was right it felt awesome i watched every single set of taillights leave the dealership for every deal i made as a sales consultant

It became not just a ritual but a symbol for caring about and following up on each of those customers also try it make sure you aren’t missing out on those little things that make doing what we do so enjoyable and make our customer relationships last this is mike little reminding you that hey selling is fun go have a great day
