Episode #73: Not in the people business? Think again…with Les Schmidt

Is your business in the people business? If you answered ‘no’, think again. According to my guest Les Schmidt, every single business is in the people business.

Joining me on today’s show is Les Schmidt – an auto repair business expert who started his business at the age of 25. He sold his business 7 years later and has since then been managing auto dealerships for the last 26 years. His specialty is in customer service, effective communication and empowering people and believes these three elements have been at the core of his success and the incredible results his business and the departments he oversaw, experienced.

Today, Les is going to share key insights to help you build a successful business through the relationships you build, including:

  • How to make good income, anywhere, anytime,
