Just finished up opening a store in the new Buck head, Atlanta area for my Job.  It's a beautiful location and during my time there I got to join the folks at the Ferrari Club of Atlanta.  It was the most amazing meet up to see all kinds of different models.  I even got to drive the New 2015 California F1, big thanks to my friends at the Ferrari of Atlanta especially Michael.  See pictures:

Gents,

I'm glad to hear you both are still at it!  It gets quiet in here... I enjoy the updates. 

David, do you have employees or are you by yourself?

Derrick,

I've been at it full-time since I opened up the doors. It has been very difficult, but an incomparable learning experience.

I tried to work part-time, but that proved too difficult with young children. Something is sacrificed...

David,

That's great, Are you full time or do you also have a job?  I have to say I have been at it for about 4 years while working and the hardest thing is to do both.

Hello Everyone!

I'm going into my third year in business. All I can say is WOW, have I learned a lot.

I can't believe how much you have to do and learn in order to run your own business. 

I wouldn't trade it for the world, however.

I'm gaining momentum on the marketing side, but I could always use some advice.

What has and hasn't worked for everyone in this group?

Hope everyone is doing well, it's been a while for me and I am still rocking away at the selling of cars.  I just hit my 200 th car sale and I am very excited about what's to come.  What's going on with you all?
