Cup o’ Joe: Why Bother?
Don’t Even Read This.
The economy is in the pits, There are no fleet/commercial vehicles anywhere in stock. Nobody will dealer trade any inventory: nobody has any.
I might as well hold tight, hang on. Take the OASIS tests required, and wait for brighter days…
ON THE OTHER HAND
SOMEDAY, there WILL be enough cab/chassis and cutaways to fill the needs/demands of fleet/commercial clients, of those vocations committed to building/repairing infrastructure.
I could get prepared, by studying the vocations that I find interesting, and seek to understand the best solutions for the units that complement their work in the field.
I might even get bold and ask my dealer principal to cover at least part of the cost of going to Work Truck Week. I know that, while there, I would find solutions that are being developed that make every vocation I serve even more efficient than was available on their older units.
Speaking personally, I went to my dealer principal some years ago and asked if the company would “scholarship me” to go to Work Truck Week. It was in Orlando, I live in Seattle. My boss advanced me $1,000 to help with air travel and hotel expenses. I have gone every year since then, covering my own costs.
I learned that much!
If you never go, you will never know how much you missed; you will never know what you don’t know.
See you there?
I hope so!
