We see the road of the industry littered with people who weren’t willing to change.”  Screen Shot 2015-11-23 at 2.28.46 PM "We are feverishly working to reshape the customer experience that is much more focused on the digital world and the ability to transact a vehicle without ever walking into a dealership.” Screen Shot 2015-11-23 at 2.29.27 PM "Without a doubt the single greatest change to this industry has been the emergence of gen. Y-ers as a major purchasing powerhouse." Screen Shot 2015-11-23 at 2.29.40 PM

    Well said, Joe, and worth rereading on a regular basis! Another advantage of small-to-midsize city living is pace and competition. Living in NYC, LA and SF entailed a hectic pace, hallmarked by capital S striving, as one realized there were a ton of others doing what I do. Spending so much time in one’s car in SoCal meant much less time for quality pursuits and pleasures. A smaller pond with relaxed pace allows one to savor life and special moments.
