Not Your Father's Economy

Not Your Father's Economy

Hello Business Class Listeners and thank you for tuning into Wisco Weekly, and our latest season of the podcast. When I first started Wisco Weekly, I discussed primarily dealership customer experiences…maybe you were a car buyer and wanted to know better about buying or working with your local dealer, or perhaps you were the seller and wanted to better your processes to optimize the customer experience.   Then as the audience grew and my network grew, I became more interested in the mobility space.

As a child growing up, I bore witness to all of this and I recall every morning he would read the Investor’s Business Daily paper and review all stocks available to invest in.   Fast forward to 2021, this economy that we ...

Permission to ride eBike, Sir!

Permission to ride eBike, Sir!

Since the pandemic, eBikes sales have exploded with 3.8 million units sold in 2020, a 23% increase year over year. With more eBikers on the roads and the trails, there is also more novice riders who are unfamiliar with the 'rules of the road' and 'biking etiquette.'    eBikers can know the rules of the road by visiting their state's department of motor vehicle website, and can learn bike etiquette by riding with experienced bikers. In episode #178, learn more about the rules of the road per the California Vehicle Code and a former triathlete.   Notes  |  Resources Featured Artist: Hell or High Water by Southern Call |  Spotify   ***** Wisco Weekly *****By Automotive Executives, For Automotive Entrepreneurs Founder and Host, Dennis Wisco, takes his Business Class listeners through the culture and society of automotive business.
