Scott Weaver from Superior Auto Electric … the world knows him as Gonzo from Gonzo’s Tool Box. He is published every month and shares his brand of knowledge and humor on ‘Gonzostoolbox.com’. No doubt if you earn your living on the service side of the aftermarket; you’ve either been to his site, read his articles or his book Hey Look, I Found a Loose Nut.
Listen to our original episode HERE and get the back story on Gonzo and get a few laughs to boot.
This episode builds on his special sense of humor and view of the challenges we all face in business. Some of our talking points are:
- Dealing with bad checks.
- How customers steal their own car without paying.
- How to insure you get paid.
- Never go for a payment deal when asked to put ‘half down’ on a repair.
I’m sure none of the above has ever happened to you.
There are more than a few life’s lessons here and just the kind of stories almost everyone who has ever turned a wrench can relate to … all bundled up in a few laughs.
