This is a typical day in the life of a typical car salesman.
- Arriving at work
- Getting on Facebook and posting your status
- Drinking coffee with your co-workers
- Having a meeting (if your store actually does this)
- Checking your news feed while you wait for an “up” ( a customer)
- Drinking more coffee
- Switching to Instagram
- Checking the news feed on Instagram and comparing newsfeeds on both
social media sites… making sure nothing has changed.
- Complaining about not making enough money
- Going to lunch, returning from lunch ( 1/2 hour late)
- Griping about how slow it is
- Catching an “up”
- Cutting the customer loose without a “turn over” to management (he was a
flake anyway; he was just looking)
- Calling some old friend at another dealership to compare how slow it is there
- Waiting for another “up”
- Re-checking your feed to see how many responses or likes you got since
- Watching the clock, wishing your shift was over
- Drinking some more coffee
- And finally, thankfully your day has come to an end (as you leave 5 minutes
- You are heard telling some other salespeople that you may have to find
another job if this one doesn’t hurry up and pan out.
Don’t be a typical car salesman!
Whether you are new to the business or a veteran, it can be easy to get sucked into the vortex of mediocrity. Mediocrity is a symptom of a deeper issue. For instance, if your typical day looks like the one above you are comfortable in your circumstances. Being comfortable destroys success. If you want to excel, you need to get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself. That’s why I created the $0 to $100,000 Fast Car Sales Training course. However, if you’re not willing to challenge yourself you won’t grow. Are you ready to level up? Are you ready to improve your game?
