Once upon a time (when I was much younger), I was rebellious and wanted nothing to do with the family business. So I packed my bags & went off to college. A few odd jobs later, I was searching for a better way to make money while going to school. That’s when I got a job at a nearby Toyota dealership and caught the bug real bad.

I was only 19 years old and thought I knew everything so I quit school to make money in the car business. And all of this happened without my father’s knowledge!

I went from making $80,000 a year to minimum wage and I was really discouraged…but in hindsight that was the best thing he ever did for me. I am glad my Dad didn’t give me a free ride. My mom and I have a joke that I have worked out of every office in the dealership at least twice.
