Key Talking Points 

  • Lists labor rate and prices on website
  • Menu board in the shop also lists prices
  • Be transparent- customers know what to expect 
  • Experiences as a woman getting car repairs- unfortunate situations occurred. Wanted to go to a woman technician and realized other women probably felt the same. Wanted to open her own shop where women and men didn’t feel like they were getting ‘ripped off’  
  • Went to school to be a technician- gets bored easily and wanted an engaging career. 
  • Took a local women’s small business startup course
  • Opened for 13 years- hired business coach 3 years ago. Felt close to being done after 10 years and needed support in a business coach. Hired a manager to run the day-to-day. 
  • Looks outside of the automotive industry for hires- hospitality
