Just that way, she’s very smart she’s very who she is, but she’s man.
She has a lot to offer for you guys she can show you guys how it’s not just about in this business of car sales.
It’s not just about being able to sell cars.

Um chase has a unique story guys.
I can’t wait to share it um, you know he he can’t walk and he can tell you he’ll probably tell you the story how old that happened, but he doesn’t let that be a disadvantage.
Man he he definitely keeps working hard and he’s a local sales manager.
Now doing his thing doing extremely well and then there’s terrell, who works up in louisville, doing his thing, working at an amazing store, so i’m really cool and excited about hearing their story, but also about them coming up in the business together.
So we’re going to try to feature more people on those live shows, like maybe local guys that are doing great.
So that’s why i wanted to bring that up is the fact.
The reason why i’m bringing it up is that we would love to find more guests for that.
Now these we have the weekly sp spotlights that we do um.
Those were pretty book to head, but i still would love to find guests for that.
So if you’re interested please reach out to us, but we have opportunities for two to three times a week.
Somebody can come on a show, so we would love for you to come on, throw your little car guy coffee mix out there for people.
So everybody needs a different type of brew.
Your brew may be perfect for somebody that day to hear so they can maybe up shift their game a little bit right.
So that’s the whole point of what we’re doing here at the cafe with our coffee, with everything that we’re trying to do is we’re trying to up shift uplift and empower people, so they can keep growing.
Forgive focus flying doing anything that you take a piece of, and we want to make that as good as it can be.
So if you have something that you think would be wonderful comment in the comments below you know, comment right now jump in we’re.
Looking for as many people to come on here like we are trying to learn we’re trying to grow, so i know that you can definitely jump on here and give us some edumacation education education that we could use.
So no we’re real excited about that, and i think that that’s going to be a really good way to really get some more people in this car community.
To be part of this whole thing that we’re trying to do this whole movement so appreciate you guys for jumping on so watching and this week there is a full.
I mean full all-around connection, uh, a big variety of blend.
That’s coming together hit your chest.
For me, one time, everybody so the the last name of our guest literally points you to where it is that she’s always actually acting.
The way that she works from right, shannon ever is always finding a way to connect to people by penetrating the heart, whether it’s the staff that she’s working with or putting together the marketing plan and the the actual sales technique that drive the message home from marketing.
To actual delivery of a vehicle, so she has masterfully come together with many people all throughout the country and she’s, always finding a solution and just like what she’s doing uh with the people that she works with inside of her marketing company she’s helping other dealers put Together the full package, because most car guys are influenced by other car guys.
Sometimes you have to have the influence of a marketer um and a relationship builder that is able to fit that piece of the engine that will actually give it that that extra boost give.
It that extra little power right she’s, like a chip that you can put in there to give you that extra boost and uh what that does is paint the same picture of bringing these incredible other car, guys that are making big things happen inside of our communities.
Right they come into the cafe too brew up some solutions pour their variety into the blend you get to eat.
Some of that you get to drink.
Some of that you get to consume some great news, that’s going on with some great people and it reverberates inside of your life inside of your world.
No doubt and share that.
That’s what we want to make sure we do is share the the great news that all of you have, because eventually you’re going to get tired of hearing us yeah and that’s that’s it.
Even i get tired of hearing myself all the time you know like we, we have enough.
We don’t get me wrong, we’re always trying to grow so we’re gon na always share the knowledge that we’re learning.
So if it may help somebody it may not, but the point is if it just helps one.
It’s all that matters right.
So you know we’re going to keep sharing that, but, like he just said it can be a little tiresome to hear from fred lu.
All the time, though, we try to shake it up a bit.
We do we try to keep it.
We try to keep it fresh, but but same time by bringing in these guests by bringing you in.
I know that every one of you watching us right now have something that you could bring to the table.
There’s no doubt that’s just what we do right.
So please, if you want to come on, come jump jump in with us man we’re all about having fun we’re all about laughing.

All of the inspirational uh terms that you can just be a walking billboard to announce into the world that you’re exposed to um go ahead and get you some of that and uh make sure that you use think 10 to save you some money absolutely but uh.
Really we want to just make sure that you are out there being solutionaries you’re out there with the message you’re out there impacting the world, not just the the customers that you sit in front of the world needs more of you, everybody that you touch folks.
You know like sometimes it’s easy to walk through life with your head down, not paying attention to what’s going on with people in front of you, but pick that head up every once while give somebody a smile, sit, you know, maybe you know, look at them and Just give them a wave there’s something about that, even with the mask on folks.
I think we’ve been all wearing masks long enough to where we know when somebody’s smiling underneath the mask.
So when you’re walking by somebody give them a smile.
If you got like, you know, teeth that you’re not proud of what better time is it to wear a mask? You don’t have to show your teeth right to smile, but that being said, your smile is the most important thing you could wear all day long.
There’s! No doubt about it the most important thing she says she will wear the car guy coffee tomorrow, get you some post that for us, i’m smiling see that he’s smiling see.
You can see it it’s the eyes.
This is this right here i mean.
People know because i’m wearing it and i’ll walk by in like the showroom and i’ll look at them, a customer and i’ll smile, and they smile back so that i know that they know just like.
I know, they’re knowing you know just like.
I know they are guys.
It doesn’t matter.
Keep smiling doing that now this week is going to be a pretty it’s a pivotal week, pivotal pivotal it’s a pivotal week, pivotal pivotal week.
So this is the mid month right so in the car business mid month means you have basically two weeks left to go to make your month and make it finish it off strong.
So if you had a really successful first half you got to still match that.
To have a great month or you may fall apart, the key is making sure that you’ve run through this finish line guys.
So if i was to give you guys one tip today and i wanted to talk about that, is you know if you’re a leader on the floor, you can’t just let off the gas you have to let these guys know that there’s a great opportunity if you’ve Had your numbers now, if you haven’t hit your numbers, the same thing: there’s a great opportunity: i’ve seen people salespeople dealerships, make all their business happen within two weeks.
They’ve you’ve done it, we’ve all done it we’ve seen it so do not worry about it.
If your numbers aren’t there, the key is to keep grinding and keep working hard at it.
It’s there keep your guys motivated, maybe buy them lunch do whatever it takes.
Get your team motivated to finish this month strong.
This is a great time to finish strong, we’re finishing summer summer’s, ending we’re getting ready going to spring school, starting a little bit of more normalcy is coming around.
It is time for you to press that gas and just go for it, because if you don’t you’re going to miss out on a lot of opportunity, i mean you can lose.
You know you can.
You can lose uh momentum and going into the rest this year because of what happened.
A lot of people did a lot of people gave up, but those of you who haven’t kudos to you way to rocket through all this stuff, but the ones who have not.
It’s okay, man, there’s always more time.
Here’s the thing about life.
It doesn’t matter what you did yesterday.
It just matters what you do from this point on this moment.
The moment you live in right now is so important.
So if you take advantage of every moment that you have and just keep going and going and don’t stop and don’t look back, you can’t look back.
You always got to look forward.
Never look back! Take that rear-view mirror off, because no matter how bad it was.
No matter how horrible you did it’s all easy to fix again so fix it guys just remember to stay forward and keep moving.
Sometimes you have to recalibrate.
Sometimes you have to recount.
Sometimes you have to re-focus go ahead and focus with me.
Everybody go ahead and make sure that we get ourselves in line with what it is that we’re trying to aim at make sure that you remove the distractions that are stopping you from focusing.
You have so much potential that you can achieve.
If you just aim your power towards it aim at it, you have to be looking at it, but if your eyes are distracted by what is not actually growing, you you’re gon na find that the fruit you’ve been hoping for the fruit.
You’ve been praying for, didn’t.
Actually grow because the action didn’t take place because you weren’t focused on doing the action.
I know it sounds really simple.
Maybe it sounds a little redundant, but consistency is what grows.
Consistency is what the world operates on.
We turn at a consistent pace right.
Our rotation is consistent and that’s why seasons are nearly predictable.
You can tell when things are going to grow so just put that in your cup sip on it enjoy and keep brewing solutions.
Lou, you got anything to say, i’m glad you asked stupid guys.
We had to do that john, what’s going on good morning, my friend good morning, john man hey, it was good talking with you last week.
Let’s reach out.
Let’s talk, it looks like he had a good time.
The end of the week last week going camping.
I know that you’ve been doing that a lot man.
I would be doing it too.
If i had a big old camper like that and i in a big old truck, i have to use it all the time.
So we appreciate you jumping on this morning too um, but now we’re excited about the week guys just remember it’s not about what you did yesterday.
Just keep going forward.
Make sure that you put the work in because, like lou was talking about.
If you want to harvest, if you want to harvest what you s, what you planted when all that, then you have to make sure that you’ve done everything necessary.
You, water, your plants, it’s like taking care of yourself.
You got to do all these things to make sure, and sometimes it comes with pruning right.
If you want some great fruit to come, sometimes you have to prune it and if you want to cultivate something you sometimes it’s pulling weeds.
It’s not always just pouring out right, it’s pulling the things out that could be sucking from the growth, so take a good look at your plan.
Take a good look at what it is that you’re trying to accomplish and you’ll actually begin to recognize what it is that you need to keep feeding or what needs to be pulled away.
If, if you’re trying to really get some good fruit, there is going to be phases where you are pruning things off um the story of the vine dresser right, where we’re constantly being pruned.
But the pruning is for growth.
You don’t uh just getting the pats on the back, don’t always help you grow uh, it’s actually inside of correction, where you find out where your potential is to grow, how how mature you actually are, whether you are a pro or not.
You know, depending on how you receive correction, is always going to determine where your direction is going to go so as you’re hey as you’re, actually uh, going into the day find where it is that you can be corrected, find where it is that you can correct Yourself and and bring some new growth prune a couple things off that may not be producing or prune some things off so that you have room for exponential growth.
Okay, think about it.
Take a look at your planner.
I, like especially you it’s evolutionary he’s so right on that you know so guys as we go into this week.
You guys crush it as we go into the second half of the month.
Just remember, you have plenty of time to make sure it works, but just put the work in you can’t let one day pass by you’ve already.
If you didn’t have a successful first half of the month, look back at what it was odds are.
If you look deep inside, you know that you just weren’t doing what you were supposed to do.
If you go two weeks now, bad luck can happen, but i tell you bad luck is just same thing as regular luck.
Luck is you have something that you, by putting hard work in and doing what you’re supposed to do all the time luck happens.
It’s not yeah.
It’s perfect luck perfectly, but when you, but when you actually just like one of our shows, but when it what.
But when you give it bad luck’s the same way you make that happen, you think about the worst things.
You always look at the worst case scenario.
You’re always worried about the worst things happening to you.
Guess, what’s going to happen, the worst things so just make sure you focus on the good things, because the good things is what’s about keep that light going guys.
So you know i ain’t got much else to say folks.
I think i’m gon na hop off here and let you guys get this day rolling day to do and we’re just trying to encourage you so get you some great caffeinated conversations going be up, shifting and uplifting inside of the world that you’re at and make sure That you are operating at a pace that is at the top level of being contagiously, confident to where all of those that are around you are free and bold enough to shine to their brightest capacity.
You have today own it and make something great of it.
Carpe diem folks seriously it’s cheesy, as that sounds, do it seize your day.
Seize the moment.
Seize everything that you possibly can, except for your life, make sure that life does not end keep it moving right so guys.
