Here are some of my favorite comments on our website from last week’s True Story, which was my back story: Triumphs and failures, and the difficult decision to sell my dealerships. By the way, if you have missed any of the previous stories, they are all here on a new special page:
I have read just about all stories that you have published and this one #37 hits home in many respects because I was there during those years. First, I can fully understand the reason for selling out your dealers because of the given circumstances, but what I learned here is that you were able to take a bad situation and turn them into good ones. Great leaders like you, make decisions to ensure the wellness and future of the organization but I know that it was not easy for you to have reached those decisions. This is because you are a person who sincerely cares about the people and customers. I have always admired your passion, leadership, love, and respect for others and for serving well our communities. Thank you for creating this show and for all of the things that you and your Team do to help our communities make informed decisions when buying their automobiles. There is no show like the Car Pro show. Keep the great work Jerry.
You operated one fine dealership In Prestige Ford. Miss having the opportunity to stop by and visit but times change and we all have to move on with our lives. Continued success with your radio shows as it’s obviously your passion.
I really appreciate your openness Jerry, it’s eye-opening and inspiring to read your story. I’m an Englishman living in Italy, and have been listening to your show since I came to Italy five years ago, taking long walks and enjoying your banter, and learning things along the way, thank you:)
