Talk about some of their dreams.
Talk about some of the things that they want to do to better.
Basically, humanity but a focal point on the people that they do commerce with uh.
They are always trying to find a way to navigate these waters and trust me anytime, that you’re navigating waters that are so vast and so huge.
It’s always better to have a crew with you and it’s just an honor to uh to be just sponsored by you guys, but also to be part of the family and having fun brewing these solutions, yeah charles! What’s going on with you! Sorry, no! What’s going on man um man, i tell you yesterday just reminded me of why i am i don’t know if anybody saw my post on linkedin um, but uh yesterday reminded me of why i’m in this business, why i love this business? Why i’ve been doing it for 20 years? Um, you know, got to in the course of a year, got to help a family achieve two huge goals that they wanted uh, so it just it pumped me up.
Uh, crazy, just revitalized me for probably another 20 years.
That’s like that that good shot of golf right.
You may have screwed up the entire game the entire day and then boom.
Something good happened.
You made that one good shot and all of a sudden, you can’t wait to get back out there again.
You know this: this business is so filled with uh with moments where negativity can seep its way in uh, but it’s so important that we continue to stay positive, continue to keep our mind on good positive thoughts and remember why we’re doing what we’re doing uh another Incredible car guy again big pop sorrel justin searle over here, he’s seen it all.
You know from from sales to management, to making sure uh to then be the vendor that takes on all of the understanding of what’s happening inside of the dealership climate and approaching solutions.
From that vantage point right i mean: what do you think? Did you get to see his video justin? Did you get something i’m not even sure if we’re connected? I just wanted to pick up my phone, but i don’t want to be ruined, so uh he’s going to be in the thick tank tonight.
I do know that right, charles yeah, charles you should get in there right and uh.
We are connected justin, uh, okay, yeah, so uh, but yeah check out my video.
I will for sure we’d love to have you in the uh in the think tank.
It’s a good time there’s a lot of things i miss about the car dealership, but one of them is not the name tag, don’t miss the name.
I’m waiting on my shirt to come in as soon as my shirts come in.
I can take off the name tag i gotcha.
I got it and i can take off the tie.
I hated that man, i don’t i.
This is my uniform.
Now it’s just it’s a hoodie every day.
So hey i hear you no another thing that got me pumped.
You know i was driving into work this morning and got some early deliveries this morning to do on some super duty trucks, but i got to think i was like man.
This is a five saturday month.
Yes, so yes hope everybody is setting up their saturdays.
Getting pumped up ready to go.
Uh hope their first saturday was successful, we’re fixing to roll into another one.
I mean i love five saturday months.
Yeah, you don’t get any better than that in the in the car business.
So it doesn’t happen that often no when you, when you sit down on that monday morning, meeting and say: hey, we’ve had a good few days and we have four full weeks ahead of us.
That gets all kinds of guys: jacked up, managers, motivated and also expectations to raise up right now now that you’re at that spot, it’s like that’s great.
Now we can actually reach for the moon.
We can reach for the stars.
We can go for bigger and better things, uh speaking of going for bigger and better things and making sure that we apply the principle to keep growing everybody, i’m going to get these solutionaries that are in the cafe with us to do what it is.
That’s first things: first, everybody.
Let’s forgive focus fly on three one.
Two three forgive focus focus fly and keep growing, keep growing, keep going.
Ah man, it’s so different without fred.
You know what i’m saying it is not good.
He probably could but he’s driving and i’m looking out for his safety and the safety of all those that are inside of the car, with him he’s probably watching right now, but uh.
We know anytime that you’re trying to – and you guys know when you’re trying to sneak in those those quick ideas or get that video shot and you’re sitting there in the car every now, and then you have this quick moment of was that safe? Should i be doing this yep right, i love my adaptive cruise control and lane keeping i’ll say that yeah.
I know i tell myself, i’m not gon na look at the camera.
Now i can look at the camera and the whole time.
I’m hey! Thank you.
Evelyn for posting that link uh to the video appreciate it.
Yeah cool cool yeah, so car gals, i’m not gon na be long.
This morning, i am inspired by the people that are inside of the cafe yesterday, watching charles and his passion inside of how he spoke of what it was that he did that day and how he was inspired after 20 years to get excited about what he’s doing Again, because of his experience with customers that you can tell that he loves, i wanted to encourage you all that the great news is that you have today.
You have the business that is in front of you and you have the dreams that are stirring up inside of your heart and inside of your mind.
But you have the chance today to approach your day with passion approach, your customer with passion, approach, your challenges with passion.
Just like you approach the relationships of those that are absolutely most intimate to you, whether it’s your spouse or your children.
If you approach those relationships with passion and with the joy that you have for life and for that connection, i promise you selling is going to be kind of the automatic part right.
It’s going to be very easy for that product to make its way in from one hand to another.
But what ultimately gets connected is that the hands of unity, the hands of of celebration, the hands of life get connected and we get to just enjoy each other.
Better, you know what i mean: it’s not the same when i don’t have my brother sitting here.
Next to me, miss him have fun, but at the same time i am so still connected to all of you all that are out there.
We are all still connected as brothers he’s with me right now and i’m with him on his vacation.
You know everybody’s having a great time, uh living life, and we stay connected inside of this constant consistency of a frequency that is the brewing solutions: lifestyle yeah, i’m loving it.
I’m loving uh getting the chance to talk to you guys, but again everybody approach your day with passion approach, your customers with patch with passion and if there’s no passion there, if there’s nothing inside of the tank, if that cup is just about empty, take some time Right go to the lake, go to the beach go where you need to go figure out where it is that you can absolutely pull out the most passion from your life, and i assure you, you’re, going to be enjoying your life way way better.
Regardless of what comes at you right, regardless of what attacks you, regardless of what may be seemingly against you folks, you can’t let somebody take away something that they never gave you okay.
So if your piece is in you, without their deposit, great you’d, be the one that deposits it whoa, you guys feeling me you got ta help me this morning, gotcha justin, anything left that you want to say before we head out of here and uh go about Just killing the day, no charles, it was great to meet you.

Yep i’ve been uh learning how to cook coffee in all different ways.
Right as we started to take this venture with eda from i say with cafe, she has challenged us to kind of get outside of the curic box, which is then challenged me to say.
Well, how can i just make this keurig better? How can i find a way to get the same awesomeness out of a curic and it is different, there’s different elements, but either way folks, there is a way to get it in the community and there is also a way to get it with any other way That you brew your coffee, so there is a cool way to do it with the pot too.
Do whatever you need it’s good, it’s delicious! It will give you confidence that it’s so contagious that it’ll make you consistent.
I’m telling you right there now! I’m excited! You know this drive is going to take a little bit of time, but i’m super pumped up about the family time on the beach i’m super pumped up about.
What’s going on in the think tank right now, the think tank is growing really fast.

I’m excited about it way better, but when everybody was telling me like hey, you know, what’s going down in the gulf right and i’m like fred’s supposed to be going there and he got like the last place, there was left to go there.
What are you doing? Three times because the first one got cancelled because after the first hurricane the place was still in damage, so they didn’t have it fixed in time for us to come.
So we had to find another place and it was hard because we had to find pet friendly, because you know jeff’s bringing brownie with them and yeah it was.
That was difficult.
We found one place we booked it.
Then then this came and it was like all right.
So then we had, then we had to get creative and you know we looked around and folks, it’s probably going to be the best vacation i ever had just because it was so difficult when you see when things just so.
You guys understand life when things are tough and you have to work harder for it.
They tend to have a big upswing.
Whenever you finally get to do it, it tends to be the best thing to ever happen.
You appreciate it even more so i’m excited i’m super pumped.
It was a change of schedule, but you know what, like i said: i’ve never taken my family to myrtle beach, and this will be a good time to go down there and check it out.
Have some fun eat some seafood chill on the beach? Oh hello, that’s right! Well, fred! You definitely deserve it.
You plug in uh.

What’s this little group of guys that’s here, this is just a small part of our of our whole fantasy teams.
I want to call it right and we’re just we’re going crazy with it, and it’s just going to be an amazing thing.
This voyage is like i told michael when we first partnered up like truly really partnered up.

Sometimes we need reminders.
Sometimes we need to look at the success of other people and seeing them come alive based off of the seeds that we’ve sowed um into their life and uh.
Sometimes you don’t even know where you’re sowing a seed.
You know there’s so many more people that are watching you in social media than interact with you, everybody just so you know you know not everybody’s gon na, like not everybody’s gon na share, not everybody’s gon na comment, but a lot of people look and sometimes they’re.
Haters and sometimes they’re people that are just absorbing it and really don’t know how to react to it yet, but eventually they get themselves out of the box.
They get themselves out of that and then they reach out and they start sharing.
They start putting videos out there.
They start letting you know what it is that’s going on inside of their life, but our culture is very good.
At sharing bad news, media has been used as a tool for many many years to share bad news and part of the bruin solutions.
Culture is to put a shock to that entire way of thinking and start to pour out positivity from the platforms that we have available to us, and i’m so thankful that i have this guy up here.
My brother right there and my brother up over there.
That is always trying to brew solutions, always giving love always trying to find a way to get the best out of each other.
I’m so thankful for you all we’re gon na go ahead and cut this off and let everybody go on about their day.
