I believe you know of my affection for the Women In Auto Care organization. Ever since I attended my first conference I’ve come to value the work they do to connect, empower and mentor women in our auto care industry. And something you may not know their incredible work with educational scholarships … this year to the tune of $65,000. More on that inside the episode.
