Any thoughts about a BHPH dealer who uses "Cash Basis" accounting and does not separate finance from the car company. I have shared with this dealer that this is not a healthy situation.
January 2013 Happy New Year to All
It has been some time since I have communicated with you and try as I may, it gets harder and harder to find the time to sit down and compose a regular message. I shall try and do better this year.
I thought I would start the year with one of my favorite topics, excuses, and my favorite response:
“There are NO Excuses”
I have heard most of the current excuses, used some myself, but the truth is, there are no excuses. Our business moves on, and regardless of the climate (weather, political or otherwise), we all have jobs to do. Yes, I will admit that Presidential Elections appear to cause goofiness for the last few months in the years in which they happen, and this past election was no exception. Additionally, the current political climate will most likely present some challenges, but our business must continue.
One of the greatest challenges I am forever facing with some of my dealers and managers is their acceptance of “Things as They are”, “Tolerating” things that should not be tolerated and “Failure to Act” when a change is needed. Don’t get me wrong, I am far from perfect, but one thing I see, over and over again are things that need to addressed and we somehow think they will fix themselves. Incidentally, they usually WON’T, and THERE ARE NO EXCUSES.
So as we move into 2013, I challenge you to be on the lookout for anything that has been tolerated, needs action or fixing or has just been done that way forever, because that’s the way we do it. In order to GET different, we have to DO different. No excuses, let’s JUST DO IT.
