FREE ASA Northwest Mentor Program - Is Your Business Still Making a Profit?
By Brian Johnson, Immediate Past Chairman of the Board, ASA Northwest

The economy has been tough for many businesses, including the auto repair industry. Many of us have seen sales volume not only stop growing, but also decrease the last couple of years. Do you have vendors that you owe 60 to 90 days out?  Very likely, if your business was making a small profit before, it is not making any profit now. These are signs that we need to ask for a little help.
