“Over the years that I have been involved in the dealership world, I discovered something. I found that some dealers were in a never-ending, all-consuming stream of struggle, day after day, while others seemed to be successful regardless of what happened to them or their dealership. It made me wonder, what separated the thousands of successful dealers we have worked with from the ones that could never get ahead?” says Sara Hey, VP of Business Development and speaker for BCI.  “Our team spent a year, taking an in-depth look at this, and what we found were seven proven habits that all of these dealers exhibited. We knew that we had to find a way to share these with any dealer who was willing to put in the work.”
