Back to Work

I haven't had much time to update this blog recently. Ten years ago, I started a career in the car business. Three years ago, I sold what I thought would be my last car as I transferred to a segment of the dealership that didn't involve the actual selling of automobiles. Two years ago that department was closed and I was out of work. One week ago I re-entered the workforce as a car salesman, in the branch of Internet sales.

Things have really changed since I last sold cars. Banks don't buy deals as much as they used to, and dealerships have drastically reduced inventory. Many of the ultra cheap used cars have been sold for the metal or turned in on the cash for clunkers program, where they will be crushed and sold for scrap.

I believe that by maintaining a high level of professionalism, and working harder (and smarter) than I ever have in my life, I will be able to achieve a modicum of success.

I had left the sales world due to the lack of sales, which was in large part due to the economy. I have returned because the economy isn't exactly offering a lot of other jobs right now.

50 hour work weeks don't allow a lot of time for posting. However, I love blogging and reading blogs, so this blog will not be going away. I still plan on posting, it just can't be as frequently as what it was in the past. And it's not a bad thing to be working and making money again. The last week has done wonders for my self esteem, and besides that I was getting tired of eating hot dogs and chicken livers.

Thanks Alex. I do plan on updating the site regularly, and there will still be an advertisement or two.
