Hi, my name is Rick white with 180Biz and I just want to talk about one thing for today and that is modes.
You see, in your business there are only two modes. There's DO IT mode and GROW IT mode and the problem that I see all the time with auto repair shops is the fact that they are in do it mode 98 or better percent of the time. They are so much more comfortable with the DO IT part of their business versus the GROW IT part of their business. Now the first thing I want to share with you about this is the fact that you have to be intentional about creating time where you are in GROW IT mode. If you don't have that time set aside, then what ends up happening is you end up with the cycle of being really, really busy and then nothing and then really, really busy and then nothing.

During my video blogs each week, I’m going to come up with a word I want you to think about. Just something to start your week off right.
This morning’s word is EXCEED. Exceeding customer's expectations. Let’s start with a story.
About two months ago, Brenda went away for a week. So… Brandon, our oldest grandson, and I had a guy’s weekend.
We drove up to Washington, D.C. and went to an event called Marvel Heroes Live. We had two front row tickets. The show was 90 minutes of guys playing superheroes going after bad guys with stage blowing up, etc. Brandon had a blast.
