#BuckFiftyADay: Selling Cars

A year ago I was trying to sell cars. Sad as it sounds, the only call-backs I was getting when applying for jobs on craigslist were from car dealerships. So, finally, one day I took the job from the dealership that offered "training." I spent a week memorizing a script. The dealership was transitioning into being a "one price" shop. For those who don't know about this stuff, "one price' dealerships put the price of the car on a sticker on the windshield. No negotiation. No haggling. I thought this was perfect for me. I'd sell cars simply by being an honest, nice guy, the kind of salesman from whom I'd want to buy a car. I memorized the script and went to work. About two weeks in, we were getting slaughtered by dealerships that negotiated. We quickly reverted and I was a down-and-dirty car salesman. I lasted two months.

Hey, it's SI's former "hockey writer" -- the one who nearly caused Crothers to quit when you told him the news. How can I reach you?

The website is looking bit flashy and it catches the visitors eyes. Design is pretty simple and a good user friendly interface. http://prettymotors.com

I concede, I have not been on this page in quite a while... notwithstanding it was another bliss to see It is such an imperative subject and disregarded by such a variety of, even experts. experts. I thank you to help making individuals more mindful of conceivable issues. Car Dealership Logan

I recently lost my job at a mine in Western Australia and was unsure what to do next as I couldn’t find work anywhere. While looking online for jobs I stumbled upon adult webcam sites. I read that even as a guy I could make enough money to support my young family. So I joined and gave it a go. At first I was shy and only made about $60 usd a day but then once I became a little more relaxed I was making about $120 usd a day. Then i asked my wife to join me on cam and our earnings exploded. We are now making over $2,200 usd a week from cams. They have saved everything, our house, family, car, everything..... I wouldn’t recommend it for everyone but for us it fixed all our money problems. Only people that have been in our position will understand what it is like.
