ASOG Podcast Ep 45 - Are Ethics Black & White with Lauralee Schmidt of Schmidt Auto Care
Aug 02, 2021 Episode 45

Payroll day is approaching, the tax collector is calling, and your parts bills are due. Facing all that, you make your phone calls to sell the little bit of work you have in your shop.

When the customer asks, “what would you do?”, what are you going to say?

Are you going to give them an honest assessment and possibly end up with a small sale or no sale at all?

Or, are you going to try to talk them into buying everything on the estimate?

If you’re not doing the selling yourself, what do you expect your service advisor to do?

If they’re on the edge of making or losing a big bonus, how do you think they’ll react?

To have this conversation, we’re joined by Lauralee Schmidt of Schmidt Auto Care in Springboro, Ohio. 

Are ethical questions black and white or do we live in a world of gray? 

Join Lucas & David at AAPEX in Las Vegas, NV on November 2-4, 2021.
