    Re: 10 Year Autogeek Anniversary

    Congratulations Mike on your 10 year anniversary. I attended one of your training sessions in September 2010 and it was well worth the time and money. I have enjoyed your posts, articles, and books over the years and feel you have elevated the professionalism of the business. Thank you for all you have done.

    Congratulations, Mike!

    Thanks for showing me how a clay bar worked 9 short years ago - that 30 second tutorial in the Show Car Garage transformed my life!

    Dang. Incredible. Thanks Mike for elevating and showing how this is much more than a rag and a bucket. Your knowledge is amazing. Let's go for 10 more at least. I got 20 to retire. Lol! Good work Mike.

    Re: 10 Year Autogeek Anniversary

    Hey thanks everyone for the kind words.


    I hesitated creating this thread, I think the times are a changing, to quote Bob Dylan - in that - in today's America, people don't join a company then work there for 20, 25 years, get a big fat pension and retire.

    My dad did this, joined the Oregon State Police after serving in the U.S. Military and followed that pattern.


    With less opportunity to spend the majority of your working years at one place it just seems there's less value placed on any time invested in any one company.


    It's more fluid now days. I made a commitment to myself that if I quit a really great job at Meguiar's I was going to give this job 100% and I'm still giving it. Autogeek has treated me great since signing up with them and that plus loving what I do means never working a day in your life.


    p.s.

    I'm not really a Bob Dylan fan, never have been, not my style of music. But his song and that title of the song seem to apply. Just look at our society.

    Thanks for all your advice, lessons and support.

    I am in year 35 at two different companies (oncology/disease formulation scientist) with these last 13 years at company #2 and loving it.

    Keep creating knowledge and training others makes the extended same company ride worth it. And have fun along the way!


    Yes times are changing but the young rookies need great mentors like yourself.
