Do better in business

By autotech-nic on May 21, 2024

AT contributor, workshop owner and trainer Andy Crook created The Garage Owners Network Facebook group to help garage owners become more successful in business, providing a free 15-minute training topic each week. These are based around one of the five pillars of business – Planning, Finance, Performance, Systems and Marketing.
Inside the group there are all the usual Facebook group features, but what sets this group apart is the strict no spam, no promotion policy.
A discussion area is somewhere where you can ask garage business related questions and get answers from your peers, without being spammed with product offers or self-promotion. The guide section contains over 60 videos and PDFs. These are transcripts that you can download and keep for future reference. The events section is where you can easily find the next event and any past training topics – there are over 100 topics so far, so use the search function to find any training on the topics you are interested in.
