As it turns out, working toward your legacy is the best way to yield massive gains as a General Manager in any business, but specifically in a car dealership.

In episode 126 I’m joined by Car Veteran, Jim “Alpha Dawg” Ziegler who shares the activities that a General Manager should be doing each week in order to promote positive growth in the store.

“Success isn’t about the money you make, it’s about the legacy you leave.”

But why is that so important to understand? Well, working towards your legacy provides purpose to your day-to-day efforts. The vision of your legacy determines how you interact with and lead your people. Your legacy outlines the criteria for holding your vendors accountable – all factors that contribute to the general success of your dealership.
