In the last 25 years, I have taken over many failing businesses, and each time I took it as a challenge to see if I could improve that business. I am happy to report that my success rate is around 85 percent. I take a time tested step-by-step marketing approach and make sure every step is followed and completed - some of which I have shared through my blog and podcast, but I have decided to summarize them all in this book, so they are easy to find under one roof, so to speak.
Why a book about gas station business? Well, gas stations are in every street corner, they are a dime a dozen, but why are there so many of them? Since the economic meltdown of 2008, we not only witnessed the collapse of the housing market, but also the wave of small businesses that closed their doors forever. Look at your city, and I am sure you will find empty homes alongside many local businesses such as restaurants, gift shops, clothing stores, etc., standing there with empty windows and a "For Sale" out front.
"Great book for those interested in gas station"
This book is truly a summary of a few episodes of my podcast show. You may ask why would I publish it as a book, well after writing the first book How to Start, Run and Grow a Gas Station Business Successfully and starting my podcast, I have realized some people want fast and quick answers to six very common questions, they don't want to listen to a book that includes everything under the sun about the gas station business.
There have been a few major failures in my 25 years of business that I have talked about on my podcast show a few times. Admitting my own failure isn't easy to do, but I knew in order to move on, I would have to face my failure, deal with it and put it behind me. But more importantly analyze and pinpoint what and why I lost in those deals.
