Would you do anything different?

Recommended Posts

Come on then...… you are at the start of your trade career, in hindsight would you do anything different.

I wish I had gone into retailing vehicles instead of just trading much earlier in my career!

Anyone else???????/

you cant go straight into retail unless you are a finance assistant (ie not a proper motor trader you are just buying and selling a commodity)

the real work starts by buying and trading on and increasing what is usually minimum start up funds

this is why most of us proper motor traders started dealing from home after buying from main dealers /auctions peoples homes fettling and either trading on to an established business or reblocking to catch jo bloggs his missus and his cute daughter with no bra:lol: (can i say that)

once you see that theres more money in retail if you can be arsed to do the detail its the next progressive step

next step is car has fault can you repair yourself or pay to have it fixed

its all down to time management versus funds versus diminishing returns

so theres no answer really

i started dealing very early in my life but buying cars from the block back then with proper proper dodgy full mots unknown till driven away by the way was a real curve ball learner as i had no one to learn from the mistakes had to be taken on the wallet

selling cars in my younger days was a good way to meet new potential females, I started off with Corsas and small hatches in my earlier twenties and it was a great resource, made sure my customer service was always on point:lol:

I am now getting married to a girl whom I sold her first car to :)

But plenty of them have careers outside of politics. Which i feel is a good thing. Nothing wrong with living in the real world like the rest of us. Apart from that very odd 'rees-mogg', who is like a character from a Dickens novel, and sits on a £100millon fortune?
