Working Too Hard? Make Your Shop Work for You! What Do YOU Want to Learn From ATI to Make Your Business More Successful?
by Sara Eisenberg
Running a shop today is not easy. It’s not like the “good old
days” when the shop owner owned the shop and the land it was on,
did repairs and ran things alone (or with a family member
helping), and knew every customer personally. Today, it’s more
likely that a shop owner is paying high rent, leasing equipment,
has unsustainable staffing costs and high taxes, and doesn’t
personally know most of the customers. It’s a very different—and
much more challenging—world.
Of course, it’s not all doom and gloom. There are shops that are
struggling and there are shops that are wildly successful. There
are shop owners who are involved in every aspect of the business
and shop owners who manage and delegate. There is no “one size
fits all” solution to run a successful shop. And Matt Winslow of
ATI knows that.
You’ve heard of ATI—it’s one of the leading automotive management
coaching and consulting businesses in the world. They’ve helped
thousands of shops of all sizes, in all markets, learn how to
improve their operations and their business. They have saved
countless shop owners from financial ruin. ATI offers hundreds of
seminars each year to help shops turn things around.
Matt Winslow is one of ATI’s senior advisors and has this piece
of advice for shop owners: “Stop running your business by
accident. Run it by design and make the business work for you.”
It sounds simple, but running a business is challenging. There
are many tools and technologies available to make shop management
simpler and more efficient. Matt’s work with ATI focuses on one
of the simplest tools: the profit and loss statement. If you
aren’t familiar with yours, and if you don’t know your
“break-even” point—you’ve got some work to do.
Whether your shop seems to be doing fine, is struggling or is on
the verge of closing, Matt has advice that can help. We produced
a webinar with him to give you a taste of
how ATI can help you. Planning ahead will lead to success. So
look to the future with both your business and what you want to
