I was talking to a group of body shop owners the other day at a trade association meeting, and one said, "I'm not in the repair business anymore; I'm in the computer business!

In the song “Takin' Care of Business” by Bachman-Turner Overdrive, the band offers their prescribed formula for rock star success: "Get a second-hand guitar, chances are you'll go far if you get in with the right bunch of fellows."

 

Ron Bello, an up-and-coming stand-up comedian, has been working as an estimator at Mike’s Auto Body in Fairfield, CA, since November 2018.

In 2013, engineers Josh Melick and Assaf Arkin founded Broadly, a company that facilitates businesses’ success online through Facebook, Yelp, Google and NextDoor, while living in Oakland, CA.

Some deserving people receive donated cars to make their lives a little easier, while others use them to get better jobs and improve their situations.

Kristopher Muse, a metal technician at Mike’s Auto Body, is only 25, but he has been playing the bagpipes for 14 years and is a member of one of the largest nationally acclaimed bagpipe bands in the country.

As a part-time firefighter, a member of his town's Building and Planning Commission and an area marketing manager for asTech---a company that focuses on providing OEM diagnostics to collision repair shops nationwide---Eric Newell, 36, is adept at multi-tasking, to say the least.

With more and more consumers searching for body shops’ information online, it has become increasingly important for shops to clean up their digital presence.
