We are all at work lots of hours a day but we don't all work lots of hours a day. If we change our perspective and maybe our attitude, may be we can sell more cars.

We all have certain ways of doing things, but when it comes right down to it the best way is the tried and true method or what we like to call the process. Allowing our team or ourselves to stray and not be held accountable is the first step down the long road to mediocrity.

Knowing too much about the pieces of a car deal does not necessarily make you a smarter salesperson. Often times by knowing how much gross you have to work with results in less gross profit as you find it easier to take the path of least resistance and give away the farm just to get that "X" on the board.

Perception is reality! As professional we all need to stop looking out the window and start looking in the mirror. Do we like what we see? By just changing your mindset just a little bit and begin to believe we are professional at what we do can often times make a huge difference in what people see and how they perceive us to be. I choose to be a pro inside and out and you can too.

Your customer can not make a decision to purchase if they don't get a chance to see some numbers. By getting their permission to give you just 5 more minutes, you put them in a position to make an offer.
