 " MICHAEL YORK---What an amazing weekend!  

You not only connected with our people but you hit the emotional chord

exactly the way Jim Rohn did!  I've had lots of people try before, and no one

has ever connected with our group like that--until now.

You’re truly a gem and you are a legend...

I'm so glad for the day that we connected and I'm excited for the future…

AND we want to place an order for books.

So we'll get everything all caught up and moving forward.  

This team loved you!  

Thanks So Much, "

Michael, I continue to be inspired by your books and monthly phone calls. We started a new marketing program last Saturday. Our goal was not just to sell more cars but to increase gross profit. I had hope that we would see an increase of 3 or 4 hundred per car. I was shocked by the customer response, I could not have dreamedthat the response would have been so strong. In the last 5 days I have seen my average profit go up over $1,000 per copy...

Thank you Michael for being one of my mentors during my journey of 'becoming' National Quality Dealer of the year! You are an inspiration and a blessing. I'm Happy you were in Las Vegas to share in my celebration. Never forget that you are appreciated.

Michael, you have shown yourself to be an important component in the continuing reinvention of JanPak that began nearly two years ago…Your messages are well received, they in many ways reinforce our strategic imperatives (critical messages I believe is how you say it), and your interactions with the sales team have spurred many of them to rethink, refocus, change, and in some cases it’s already delivering greater results. Our goal of doubling our business (in the next 5 years) has a better chance of realization as a result of our UNCOMMON partnership… Last, I like you.

You’re a good person, a good friend, and a true professional. You have passed my test of being someone I can play 18 holes of golf with on a nice day. Myself and my team learn from your counsel as you do from us. The best relationships run two directions, not one way — our partnership is most definitely a two-way street that invites many worthwhile stops along the way… Thank you!”
