As we gear up for Memorial Day weekend, it's time to fire up the grill, kick back with friends and family, and soak up the summer vibes. But amidst the barbecue and relaxation, let's not forget the true reason for this special day. As you enjoy the long weekend, take a moment to pause and reflect on our military heroes. Raise a toast in their honor, share stories of their bravery, and express your gratitude for their service. To all our hardworking shop owners, we hope you take some time this weekend to relax and recharge. Whether you're hosting a backyard barbecue, hitting the beach, or simply kicking back at home, may your Memorial Day be filled with laughter and good times.

Do you have a job or do you own a business?
"If your business depends on you, you don't own a business - you have a job..." - Michael Gerber Does that resonate with you? It's a statement that challenges us to examine our roles as business owners. Are we truly building something that can thrive independently of our constant presence, or are we stuck in the cycle of working in our businesses rather than on them? Here's the reality: Many entrepreneurs find themselves trapped in the day-to-day operations of their businesses, unable to step back and take on the role of a true business owner. But it doesn't have to be this way. There are steps we can take to shift from being an employee in our own businesses to becoming true business owners. The first step is to delegate and empower others. This means building a team of capable individuals who can take on tasks and responsibilities, allowing you to focus on strategic planning and growth. Trusting your team and giving them the autonomy to make decisions is key to freeing yourself from the day-to-day grind. The second step is to systematize your business processes. By creating standardized procedures and workflows, you can streamline operations and reduce reliance on any one individual, including yourself. This not only increases efficiency but also ensures consistency and reliability in your business operations. So, ask yourself: Are you truly a business owner, or are you simply running a job disguised as a business? Take the steps to empower your team and systematize your processes, and watch as your role transforms from employee to business owner. Let us know how it works for you!

What Are Your Plans This Weekend?
As the weekend approaches, it's natural to start dreaming about how you'll spend those precious days off. For some, it's a chance to unwind and recharge, while for others, it's an opportunity to tackle projects and make the most of their free time. Whether you're planning a relaxing getaway, catching up with friends and family, or simply enjoying some well-deserved downtime, weekends are a time to indulge in the things that bring you joy. Picture this: a leisurely Saturday morning spent sipping coffee on the porch, followed by a scenic hike in the afternoon and a cozy dinner with loved ones in the evening. Or perhaps it's a spontaneous road trip to explore new places, with nothing but open roads and endless possibilities ahead. Whatever your ideal weekend looks like, there's no shortage of ways to make the most of those days off. But here's a thought to ponder: What would those plans look like if your shop was fully staffed? Imagine having a team of dedicated professionals who can handle the day-to-day operations, allowing you the freedom to truly enjoy your weekends without worrying about work. Would you spend your time differently? Would you take more time for yourself, or perhaps pursue new hobbies and interests that you've been putting off? It's an intriguing question that invites us to consider how having a well-staffed shop could enhance our quality of life outside of work. So, as you look ahead to the weekend, take a moment to reflect on your plans and how they might change if your shop was fully staffed. Whether you're dreaming of adventure or craving relaxation, one thing's for sure – having a reliable team behind you can make all the difference. Here's to weekends filled with joy, relaxation, and the freedom to pursue your passions. Cheers to making the most of every moment!

What can a business coach teach you?
A business coach may seem unnecessary, but do you ever find yourself feeling like you're stuck in the daily grind of your business, with little time or freedom to pursue your passions outside of work? What if there was a way to break free from this cycle and create a business that operates smoothly, even without your constant presence? That's where a business coach comes in. They're not just there to offer advice – they're there to help you transform your mindset and approach to business, so you can build a high-performing team that can take your business to new heights. If you want a real business that operates without you, you need a high-performing team of self-managing employees. With the right staff in place, you gain freedom, and you can’t place a price on that. Without a good team, you’re tied to your business and you can’t grow. There’s no freedom or money in that. You’re stuck on the front counter or turning wrenches forever. Many business owners put their heads down and ignore the hard work of learning how to attract, develop, and retain high-performing team members. This approach leads to burnout, inconsistency, and a quick return to old patterns that keep them stuck in a rut. Instead, adopt a simple yet life-transforming mindset learned from a coach: The owner sits in the box. The coach is on the field. The players play the game. Start by asking yourself 3 - 5 times per day, “What role am I playing in my business right now at this moment?” and see what the answer is. You can set an alarm on your phone and carry a small notebook around with you to record the answers. Do this for a week and then review where you spent most of your time. The results will amaze you.
