The Absolute BEST rental car bus driver was in Atlanta, GA, he had an incredible radio voice and dynamic personality. He made the best of his day and shared his Enthusiasm. He also played the best 1970’s Soul Music. You couldn’t help but have a little pep in your step, walking out. And just think about it, he did this ALL day long. And as you walked out of the bus, he would say, Have a Blessed Day.

“You can tell a good salesperson by the volume of their music.”
I used to say you can always tell a good salesperson by the volume of their music! Motivation.

You will be amazed at how in a matter of minutes, you are up dancing or in a better place.
