Reasoned Debate – How We All Do Things Is Slightly Different

Your approach to things may differ from how others do it, but that doesn’t mean it’s wrong. You may need to have a reasoned debate about the merits of your approach rather than dismissing it because it is not mainstream or the echo chamber says you are wrong. Even if your methods don’t align with…


We Hear Stuff!

What do we do with the ‘stuff’ we hear? Are you writing down those learning moments? Are you creating projects or goals from the new ‘stuff’ you hear? Do you remember any of it? Do you have a digital assistant to help you collect all your thoughts and incoming ideas? Since starting the Remarkable Results…


We May Have To Get Messed Up Before We Can Step Up

It’s often said that we must hit rock bottom before we can rise to the top. In life, there are times when we may need to experience challenges and setbacks to truly understand the importance of moving forward. Finding ourselves at our lowest points can be a wake-up call, prompting us to reevaluate our choices…

Hey Carm, Thanks for all you do in the Automotive World. I love listening to the Podcasts and the insight that is brought out every episode. I just started listening about a month ago and every time I've taken some great insight to use going forward.  Andrew Jansen

Carm, I want to thank you again for the service that you provide to our industry. We have needed someone for many years to gather the best in the industry with the idea of mainstreaming thoughts and processes that will make our hobby, obsession, passion or whatever fancy word we use as an excuse to keep ourselves in the bays instead of the boardrooms, the true profession that it is and you, my friend, have done just that. You and your weekly guests have inspired quite a few I am sure and I find myself looking forward to every podcast as well as trying to make myself available to join in live on Fridays.  Kevin Bartlett

Hi Carm, I’ve been meaning to tell you, thanks!

I’m not sure you realize (or maybe you do) how important what you do for the automotive industry is. Your podcasts have become a very meaningful part of my training. So much so, that if I have a question about anything in our shop I find myself searching for answers on the Remarkable Results website. Just this morning, during the Town Hall Academy, I picked up a few tips about our business insurance that I need to discuss with our agent.

Keep up the awesome job you’re doing. Best Regards,   Nick Modesti

Good morning Carm!
Well, I took your advice, called my local Boces, and was received with open arms! I first spoke to a very excited principal, who passed my number along to one of the instructors. After several phone conversations, Jason (the Boces Automotive Instructor), came and met me at our shop. Great conversation, fantastic interaction, and end results are that I am joining the advisory panel, helping them change the curriculum, and am becoming a twice a month "guest speaker" for the first and second-year classes.

We are beginning to figure out an internship program to help the students achieve their required practical work hours as well as figuring out how to plan shop tours/field trips to help introduce the kids to real working environments and situations so that they don't go blind into the real world ! Super excited. Jason said that I am the first person that has reached out to them that he knows of in the two years that he has been teaching there.

Thank you for your encouragement in doing these things! I really look forward to having some positive input on these kids and helping ng guide them to being successful. But it's a big country, with a lot of counties and schools and opportunity! I am glad that I am reaching these kids at the high school level. They also have an adult Ed class that I might get involved in. Go team !!!   Kevin Eckler

Thanks again for your podcasts Carm, I really enjoy listening to them and they absolutely help me to run a much more professional business.   Eric Mileham 

You are doing a wonderful job and you're setting the bar as a resource to better the industry. Sincere thanks. You're dedication is valued and appreciated by more than you know. Maryann Croce

The Podcast is Like a 40 Minute 20 Group.  Andy Bizub

Carm, I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your podcasts. I am an outside salesman for a NAPA jobber in Pennsylvania. I've been in the business for we'll over 25 years, starting on the counter and progressing through most every position at one time or another. One of the stores I worked at was supplied by your former warehouse. Your podcasts inspire me to help my customers (wholesale and retail) in any way I can. They also help me prepare for my future.

I'm currently back in school pursuing my Bachelor's Degree in Business Management with the goal of one day being an auto parts store owner and listening to the shop owners talk of their successes and failures really helps! I was browsing around your website hoping to find a list of books that have been mentioned on your podcasts. I usually listen to your podcasts while driving from customer to customer and am unable to jot down a book title when they are recommended. I did re-download Town Hall Academy 043 "Book club" so I can listen to it again this weekend for the recommendations from that podcast. A dynamic list of books on your website would be an awesome addition (just a suggestion - the website is pretty awesome already!). Thank you for the amazing content and keep up the great work!  Jay Woodford

I just wanted to drop you a quick email and give you a big thanks for the Advisor Role Play podcast! It was awesome! I used it last night for my team sales meeting. Keep it coming!   Gary Pontious Jr

I just wanted to drop a note to say thank you.  I just found out about you from my coach, Mike Kost from Elite about 2 weeks ago. I haven't been able to stop listening, and I have been so encouraged by tour podcast and all of your terrific guests.  I am a 16-year shop owner, started in this industry about 30 years ago pumping gas.  Made a TON of mistakes along the way, and many times have been ready to hang it up.  But by the grace of God, and with the help of good people along the way, I am still here.   Thanks again, and keep it up!     Daniel Winter AAM CMAT-L1
