The Greatest of All Time

There’s a lot of discussion lately about who is the greatest of all time in basketball. The great players in any sport work diligently to perform to the best of their ability.

If Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes

In a world increasingly picking up speed, passive leaders have never been more vulnerable. Recent history has demonstrated in business it’s no longer so much a matter of the big eating the small, but the swift eating the slow. Obviously, this dynamic puts the careers of those content to wait for things to change on a leadership endangered species list. You know what I mean—those content to wait for:
• A better product: “Once the ‘X’ or ‘Y’ model gets here we’ll be rocking.”

Game changers understand the difference between hard and smart work, and in fact do both. This episode from Dave shares the truth about hard work so that you can end your days feeling energized, motivated, and accomplished, rather than unfulfilled, depleted, and frustrated.

It’s because, at a 75% gross profit margin on labor sales, this department offers, by far, the greatest incentive to increase sales. That was then, and many dealership owners and managers looked at service gross potential that way.

Choosing a Car Shipping Service

Everybody makes a move at some point in their lives and it is not as easy as it seems. It is like a big project, which requires so much attention and expenses. Moving without your vehicles is not possible because you need them at every point in your life. Most importantly, you cannot depend on car hiring services for very long at another place. So you need to transport your own car, for which you need to hire car shipping services.Car shipping services are easily available throughout the country. Search over the internet and you will see that there are hundreds of companies providing this service. Companies are offering car shipping service both locally and internationally, which is great for people who travel more locally and globally.So, the next main target is selecting a few companies that would provide you the best rates along with premium quality services. The companies are eager to gain more customers because it benefits them. On the other hand, you should also look for the same set of benefits when it comes to hiring the services of the companies because you are paying for it.In order to get the most out of your hard earned money, you will have to put in maximum research for the task and ensure you are confident about the processes of the selected company. You need to be vigilant because you are handing over your vehicle in the hands of unknown people.Car shipping services are divided into two main categories; covered and uncovered. With the covered services, the car is transported using the best security measures in case the weather turns harsh or other contingencies arise.The other option is the uncovered car shipping services. This service does not include premium security measures. These services are offered at different rates and you can choose according to your budget. There are not so many differences in the kind of services in both secure and unsecured car shipping services.To make the experience of using the car services a more reliable one, look out for other necessary details like insurance, federal licenses and other important documents. All car shipping companies are required by law to get themselves registered with the federal authorities. Check out if the company you have selected is registered or not. You need to ask the company to show you the licenses they hold to run the business.As always, you will want to try and get the best price you can. Get quotes from the companies that you have found that you can trust. That being said, you don't want to just hire the cheapest service and end up with a company that doesn't provide adequate service for you and your car.for more info, You can learn more about car shipping at our website at https://hyperdel.com/auto-shipping-carlsbad-ca/   See More

The Greatest of All Time

There’s a lot of discussion lately about who is the greatest of all time in basketball. The great players in any sport work diligently to perform to the best of their ability. In our automotive field, I’m sure we could discuss at great length who the greatest of all time would be as well. Most of us don’t consider ourselves working towards the greatest of all time in what we do. We should all constantly be working on being the absolute best we can be and in essence be the greatest of all time for ourselves. If we were constantly doing something that made us better we would all find improvement. The point is nothing happens by accident.  LeBron James isn’t in the discussion to be the G.O.A.T of basketball without an immense amount of effort. He is so focused on being the best possible basketball player possible he refines his skills constantly. He is a student of improvement in every aspect of his life. Be honest and ask yourself if you are working diligently to be better. Have you evaluated your individual skills and challenged yourself to improve technique or process that will elevate your performance? I challenge you to start today setting new higher standards for your performance. Do this for yourself and become the greatest you of all time!

Content Doesn’t Have to Be Scary!

Great content comes in several forms. However, many people think of content as just the written word, such as blogs and articles. For those who aren’t writers, or don’t have the time to write, this can seem like a daunting task.It’s tough coming up with ideas and, even when you do, explaining your idea in writing, rather than speaking about it in person, can be difficult. Well, I have great news for those of you that feel that way. One of the most popular forms of content today is also the easiest to produce. It can also be the best way to get your message to your audience in your own words –and that is video. Video content plays well across all publishing points. Your website, YouTube and other social media channels see increased engagement and studies show that these days audiences prefer video content. As a result, publishing platforms give video content increased reach. Here are a few pointers that can help with developing video blogs: Appearance – Many would tell you to follow the adage, “Dress for Success.” In this case, however, it’s more important to be yourself. To be at your best, you should feel comfortable when presenting. If you normally wear suits, that’s fine, but if you’re a t-shirt and blue jeans person, there’s nothing wrong with that. Dress in whatever way you usually present yourself to your customers. Setting – One of the most important things to consider, but which tends to get overlooked the most, is the background. Everything in the video tells a story about you including the background. Ensure that the background is visually appealing but that it does not have so much going on that it is distracting. For example, a blank white wall behind the speaker versus a visually pleasant background such as an outside setting does make a difference in the impression the video makes on your audience. Be sure to do a test and see how things look. If you are at your desk is it clean or are there piles of paper lying around? Or, does that plant in the background look likes it’s growing out of your head? Lighting – Be sure to have appropriate lighting while filming. This doesn’t mean you have to invest in studio lights, but simply that you’re well lit. If you have light coming from behind you, it is likely that that you will appear dark, or simply a silhouette to your audience. Light coming straight from the front could make you appear washed out. Side lighting (depending on the setting) is usually best. Of course, nothing beats nature. On a nice day with a good background, natural lighting can really make you shine on camera. Sound – Last, but not least, ensure that the sound quality is good on the video. This can be achieved with an inexpensive lapel microphone that plugs into your smartphone (if you’re filming using one), a desktop microphone, or, if you have the budget, more expensive wireless lapel microphones. There are many options to choose from, regardless of what equipment you choose to film with. Simply ensure that your audience can hear you clearly and that you are not muffled, do not sound distant or have an echo. Don’t let content scare you. There are many ways to produce educational, thought leadership content both written and with video. Of course, something else to consider is utilizing a mixture of both. This is the best way to increase the chance of your content being devoured by your audience. Whichever medium you choose, content can be the simplest, most effective and least expensive way to get you and your company in front of your audience on a regular basis.See More
