When it comes to shop consultants there are loads groups that talk a good game, but Nick and Robert help you make it happen. They have enabled me, coached me and given me the confidence to grow my shop into the business I have always wanted. From the start of our collaboration they have coached me through purchasing the business, laying down the ground work of systemizing my shop, & helped me train my staff into the professional team they are today. The Shop Management Alliance offers weekly topics covered for Service Advisors as well as business owners to continue growth and teach the background required to operate a safe, viable, law abiding professional business, not just a shop. The other owners in the alliance are all on the same boat together, often sharing ideas & policies as well as marketing that have all been proven to be successful by actual shop teams. With over 220 years of combined shop owning & managing experience this collaboration has made my life easier as well as more fun, freeing me up to be an owner, not an employee. I am ever thankful to SMA for helping me achieve the business I have today and look forward to a profitable future helping me as an owner change the lives of my staff as well as growing the appreciation to our industry.
