“The overeducated are worse off than the undereducated, having traded common sense for the illusion of knowledge.” Naval Ravikant
I saw this quote and it was a good reminder that we have to be careful in the automobile business to not let data be the only decision-making factor to determine a strategy for each used car in our stock portfolio.
I’m constantly reminding my audiences that every used car is different and has to be fully evaluated as the unique beast it is.
Your skill, your knowledge, your experience, and good common sense play a major role in your success.
Never sell yourself short. Then on the other hand never sell yourself on being too smart.
Software is a tool and a guide that should help point you in the right direction, but at the end of the day, it’s your decision making that’s going to make a big difference.
Show me someone that “gets” the car business and understands how to analyze data, and I’ll show you someone managing a used car department that’s rocking.
Rock your used car department by using common sense and technology. That’s all I’m gonna say, Tommy Gibbs
