That makes sure that everybody is upshifting uplifting each other to forgive focus and flying they’re focused on where it is that the company wants to go and they can help you achieve that, plus we team up with these great solutionaries that have been doing things elite man.
We think about that.
We have so many.
We have so many partnerships right now and each one of them have such great value.
You know, i know we talked about our sponsors here a few moments ago and when we did, you know you guys, you guys saw from our hearts how much they mean to us as people, but their companies.
You know, and we express that also is how great their company’s companies are.
So you have to understand that what you get with car guy coffee when we come in and we can we ever get that opportunity to sit down with you you’re going to get going to change your life.
Oh my gosh, it’s you know how you ever had that i remember being at some dealerships in certain parts of the country and that coffee that coffee ban come rolling in they had all these different coffees, different shots, and you had like you want the jamaican.
You want this, you want that yo.
I guess yes and yes, right triple shot, quad shot.
Let me get all that and you just turn yellow up here, but i remember they had all these different brews in these different styles and they were just so whatever you needed.
They had and that’s what we were going to bring for you like you know, you need a double shot.
Well, man! Let me get you a double shot of this f this.
You know elite f5, oh by the way elite.
If i, if you mix in a little bit elite five, would you take a single shot over here? Oh, you need just just a single shot of exo gloss up in this mug right here, but you need a little flavor dash i’ll get you some! Oh of this dealership toolkit you throw that in there, but then to follow up with that.
Once you guys get settled in after a few months.
We need to make sure that we get think that group up in here doing their thing all right, because what they can do is they could bring in that flavor to make sure you retain all your customers they’re going to get into your database and make sure That it’s done right.
So that’s! What i’m talking about, i think ad group is is what i it’s like trying to explain to your kid: hey, listen, there’s food at home! You know what i mean.
We don’t got to keep eating out yeah.
You know what i mean: there’s just food, that’s really good food that we’ve intentionally purchased for the cooking.
You know what i mean and we paid a price to get that and it’s there it’s going to be better than anywhere else.
In most case scenarios, let’s go ahead and think about that and go dig into, and i don’t want to call my new customers.
Well, my old customers right.
No, you call you got so many customers in the cupboard you need to go ahead and think about that.
Put that in your cup sip on it and uh, and look at your your business as understanding that there’s so much that you’re sitting on that you can dig into.
If you have the right team of people helping you do that.
But again so many solutions that are brewing out there and we want to know how you’re doing it, what what is it that you’re doing to help farm your actual customer database give us some tips and tricks.
We got some ideas.
You know we also are going to be doing a featured spot every week.
It’s going to be – and i don’t know the exact title yet, but we’re going to introduce every week a a highlighted car person out there and this that we believe is doing it on social media being being a solutionary being the type of person that other people Can look up to laugh at even bringing light when it was so dark in this business we already have a nominee he’s already.
I’ve already told him who he is so we’ll be announcing that i’m gon na be setting up yeah it’s gon na be great guys.
So, like i finished watching one of his videos – and i’m like come here – come here come here.
This guy’s got this guy he’s hilarious and i’m sitting there cracking up and some of them she gets another one she’s like i guess i got ta be a car guy and it’s like yeah, you got ta, be a car guy to get that shoe, show shoot.
Sure i’m hilarious and then i’ll go watch it again man.
I can’t wait to announce it.
Sorry, we’re excited! So you know season two is coming around.
We have all these new guests we’re bringing in new things that we’re gon na be dropping every week to introduce starting the first week of season.
Two we’re going to be dropping that same series that we’re talking about there.
That person is going to be putting a video out we’re gon na use that video in every show have some fun with it.
You know we’re gon na.
I need to get matt damos rolling on his mentor moments.
I got ta get him rolling.
I know he wants to do them, so we just got ta.
Make it happen.
Live correspondence is what dj saying you need a lot of correspondence out there.
We already have that in the bruin, my friend, that is in the pot brewing up as we speak.
That’s going to be something that we’re going to do.
I really want to provide that for some people that i know i want to send them out doing some stuff.
You know i i like being here at the cafe.
I i’m not much.
You know on trying to always be somewhere else, i like being here, so i obviously the more people that could be out there helping out the better, so we’re pumped up about that, but we all got michael offline too.
What’s up my friend, hello, my brothers hashtag cgc season, two hello, my brother, hello, brother, hello, my friend, yes, yes, hello, focus, fly and keep growing.
I mean i don’t think anybody’s put that combination together.
That’s the first! That’s a good one! I like that, if i’m gon na write this down rita, what’s going on rena watts, how are you doing tonight hope you’re doing? Well, you know uh.
You know we’re about to probably hop off here in a second, so we just wanted to come on drop.
Our first live of the year uh.
You know we have some great stuff coming up on thursday we should have.
We should have some kind of brew going on.
I got to get the time corrected on it.
Hopefully we can get that worked out.
If not we’ll make that work out, i’m sure i can get somebody, but i can promise you thursday, we’re going to have a live show for you.
That’s going to have a guest so who that guest is, i’m not sure a hundred percent, but either way we do have some episodes dropping this week either way so you’re gon na have some right now you need to make sure that you do get you some Of the brew, that’s out there for you guys, um.
We have some incredible solutionaries, like michael offmyth from elite fi parts who has helped us to launch into the elite stratosphere of uh solving transportation problems for our customers uh.
We are so pumped up about that, but all the way from down under we are also connected with mike michael julie, is everywhere right now, every time i look at and go some place, i’m like this guy is smartly jumping over the ocean, and i love it Because it shows everybody that hey look pretty consistent videos out every single day, all the time.
That’s the key folks.
I don’t know if you all know the ancient ancient car guy coffee secret.
What i do is, i can put out the video every day.
That’s what i do and that’s how i’ve been breaking it and that’s what i’m going to keep doing folks, i’ve committed to another year of doing quick, brews, lot, walks, etc, etc.
As long as we both shall live now, what i am going to be doing for real is i’m going to be working on really strong, changing it up a little bit the way, i probably do it.
I might even step away from the live video for the quick brews um just so i can do some cool editing with them.
I haven’t been able to do that for a while.
So i think that the live was really good for me to really get my uh, and this is probably a good tip for all y’all out there, though the live was a good way for me to get used to talking on the fly.
Having pressure of having to go through those words and to settle for the stumbles, you know, because when you’re recording yourself, you could stumble and say ah stop.
I’m gon na wipe the whole thing and you’re all over a good piece, but it doesn’t matter.
It’s just one stumble, so it’s okay, so it’s actually helped me a whole lot.
I think, with my video techniques and the way that i record and how i record how i act in front of a camera and all that, so i think that i know that i’m ready to do it, and so i’m excited about trying to do it.
A little bit more different and catered for how i want it to be.
I can add, like different, like how we got stuff down here right now.
I can do all kinds of extra stuff going on it’s cool, doing it on these things here, and i probably will record it on this, because i can do these little, but then i can take it, use it on splice, which is a great app for you.
Folks out there, if you’re not using it for your phone editing splicing, so that’s money for real, so i can do a couple spots for you dj.
I love you dj because everybody’s like i’ll, do this for you i’ll! Do that you know, and i don’t blame you i’d want to do it for the car guy coffee podcast too, we’re a lot of fun, and you know what you never know brother.
We we may have to reach out and get you to do something like that.
For me all day long, so, let’s see what’s going on live correspondence, doing well saying hi, because i knew you from louisville my hometown.
That’s right! Thank you.
I appreciate you for coming on live is next level it’s.
It is like.
It is next level uh your cards, that’s right, uh! It is next level, it takes practice and it’s work.
But honestly, it’s just once you do it, you just do it.
You just go with it and just don’t no regrets no.
No regards no regards no regards regards yep.
They were great, it’s not easy yeah.
I appreciate that you know they’re not easy, but they’re.
I tell you like.
I said it’s helped me grow leaps and bounds in one year’s time.
You know being able to do those videos, it’s fun, because these, like memories, are starting to pop up, and i could watch videos when i first started and all this stuff and see your growth yeah.
I see the growth and i see the things that i wanted to happen happen.
You know and all that type of stuff.
So it’s a lot of fun.
I see the go cards.
I’m just kidding because we’re going to see it go cards yeah you guys did.
It was pretty incredible because we both were horrible, the whole game and then you guys wanted them.
Okay, i stopped watching every time i started watching it just probably lose in the lead.
I’m gon na go watch dishes.
That’s right! Kentucky got their win.
The other night, which is exciting.
Mr dante allen had seven three pointers: local kentucky boy come here.
His dad actually went to high school at my high school dante smith’s, which is really cool.
So he it’s pretty neat to see him pop up through his dad threes like that, too, is like crazy, like a scoring machine.
So it’s really neat to see that happen, but he’s much taller than his dad is right.
I know what that’s like yeah.
Well, i don’t know what it’s like to be taller than you did.
I do i’m not taller than my dad and i was smaller than my me and my brother.
Both my dad were like what’s up dad yeah my dad’s, like five nines, we’re both like i’m six one ish and my brother’s like six, two six three, so who else is uh total on your side, my all my dad’s brothers, my dad’s, a short one, he’s Four brothers he’s the oldest and he’s a short one.
Everyone else is six foot plus.
What i’m excited about is on the tour list of my siblings.
I’m the i’m the big kid you know when some manuals, that’s what i’m talking about nice yeah from i went to down here in north hardin out here in kentucky what what north hardin high school we’re the north heart trojans.
So that’s what i’m saying so many people wait.
I wait for yours, especially as of recent.
You have been the most consistent trying to catch it when it’s live, and i appreciate that you know um means a lot.
You know, folks, if you guys want to catch it.
That’s that’s what i’m going to start doing is i’m going to start pre-recording them and then i’m going to have it where they’re going to be released every day at the same time, so you know when to expect them and i think that’s one of the hardest Thing with doing it live sometimes i get too caught up or i can’t record so if i, but if i put it on a schedule, then i have to make it happen, so i could record it some other time real, quick boom boom boom boy.
You know in case i so i could record stuff, but i was like i can’t do.
A lot of somebody might walk in it’s kind of awkward, blah blah blah.
So you know i’m trying to make it work, so i think it’ll be better.
I’m gon na try to make it like where it’s like one o’clock every day and i think i’m gon na add a couple more videos.
I think i’m gon na do two more videos a day.
I just got ta figure out what it’s gon na be.
I don’t wan na overdo it to where i can’t figure out content because man, it could wreck your brain, but you know i’ve overcame that.
I don’t even worry about that.
Together, yeah i got ta just think of something set it up.
Maybe i i don’t know.
I’m about to figure that out, though it’s gon na happen by season two.
When season two starts all kinds of stuff: [ __ ] shifts.
