Show Notes

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] In the future of automobility, cars will still play a major role. While the technology and engineering of cars will fit the modern needs of society, the process of buying a car and adhering to all state, federal, and private business compliance will still exist. Cars will need to be registered with the DMV. If financing is in place, then appropriate institutions will run credit and extend loans. If the buyer purchased a warranty or an insurance product, then the dealer will service. Long-time and self-retired General Manager, Derek Manis, gives Wisco Weekly an insider look into the process of finance and insurance, or better known as F&I, of the car buying process. During F&I, customers sign contracts and have the ability to purchase additional warranties and insurance products, like GAP or key replacement, tire and wheel replacement, ding and dent removal, and a host of other products. As Derek eludes, this is a process that needs some cleaning up in order to optimize the customer experience. Tune in to hear an insider's perspective of the finance and insurance process, and the next time you are buying a car, take heed of Derek's advice. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Leadership Lessons in Automotive (feat. Mike Cavanaugh, Max Digital)

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Today's guest was literally raised in the car business. He started working in the business with his father at a very young age. Later, he joined the Marine Corp. and was taught the leadership skills needed to succeed in the automotive industry. Rather than going into detail about my guest, it would be best to hear from his recommendations: Kurt Jensen, Chairman at Soldier's Angels, says "Mike is one of those rare people that does this crazy thing called 'tell the truth' and lets the chips fall where they may." Steve Atanasovski writes, "I saw Mike develop into one of the best directors in the company and take a team that was struggling to perform prior to his arrival, to one of the top districts in the company." Rasheedah Page touts that "he has an all-inclusive approach to leadership that his team members really respect and respond to." And Cathy Bush, who was Mike's teacher when he pursued his MBA at Northwood University, raves about him and says, "Mike's emotional intelligence enabled him to effectively challenge others and himself in exploring a number of business topics. His ability to self-assess and seek feedback helped him to grow as a leader." Having received his Bachelor's and Master's degree from Northwood University, he currently  serves as the Executive Vice President of Max Digital. Here to share his experiences and best practices on leadership, men, women, and children, please welcome to the show, Mr. Mike Cavanaugh. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row] ...
