12 Volt: Not All Business All the Time
Quick question: When was the last time you looked at your business’ profit-and-loss statement? Or Bank Reconciliation? Not the one generated by Quickbooks. The one by the accountant. You probably never have. That’s fine by me. You can measure your business performance accurately enough by the balance in the checkbook.
Besides, isn’t the reason most of us got into 12 volt in the first place is because it was a piss? It might have been killer sound quality, an awesome install, or a system with so much bass it vibrated your windows two blocks away. Whatever got you bitten by the bug, you chose to come into an industry where blending cool cars, music and killer tech is the norm. What could be better? Certainly not looking at spreadsheets.
The only thing better is taking a break from the everyday car and doing something extra crazy, like letting the installers go nuts on a light day and take on installing a system in a shop golf cart. A jetski. A moped. Or the manager’s kid’s Power Wheels Escalade (did you know that radio only pulls in two stations and Fisher Price has the audacity to charge $60 for the module? You have inventory in your stockroom that delivers 1,000% more for a few dollars more, your cost.). Somewhere out there I know there is a toilet on wheels with a system, but I have not been able to track it down.
