Did you notice what was on the cover of our September 2018 issue? Recalibration, an important subject for sure. In fact, it seems like scanning and recalibration is all anybody in our industry can talk about lately. But when was the last time you recalibrated your business?

There is no doubt vehicles are getting incredibly sophisticated these days, but as a result, I feel like technical training has taken the spotlight and nudged out business training.

There is a need for all sorts of training in our industry, and BodyShop Business delivers it all, including technical. But we are BodyShop BUSINESS, after all. We can’t forget about oiling the cogs and wheels of our daily business to keep the motor chugging and churning out a profit.

I highly encourage you to read our story on recalibration this month, but might I also suggest that you check out Hank Nunn’s “Back to Basics” series? You’ll learn all about basic business skills covering financials, customer service, selling and more.

In this highly technical age where vehicles have become computers on wheels, we can’t take our eye off basic business management. And we have more of that content than anybody on bodyshopbusiness.com. Check it out!
