As you might have derived from the title, I am at work on a snowy February morning in 2021. We here at ASM Auto are a new shop trying to establish ourselves in the automotive field. The last thing we needed was 12 inches of snow! Now I am not going to turn this article into a bitch session. Instead, I would like to tell you about some of the things I am grateful for. First of all: I have an opportunity to write this blog. Second: I did not break my back shoveling. Third: we have some fantastic neighbors who have been in business for many years and remember what it was like just starting out. They took it upon themselves to plow our lot. That was the true definition of what it means to be a good neighbor.
With all the things that happened in 2020, it is important that people can still rely on a good neighbor. We have had our struggles with opening an auto repair shop in late 2020. Some may have said it was not the smartest idea. However, all of us here at ASM Auto wanted an opportunity to do things a little differently. We wanted to be good neighbors. That means putting forth the extra effort that makes your customer feel special. Now, like I said, it has been a struggle, but the response we have received from our customers has been extremely uplifting. In times that are difficult, if you look hard enough, there is always something to be grateful for. I want to end this with a THANK YOU! to everyone who has given us the opportunity to work on their vehicles, to the owner Aus who has taken the chance on this operation and given us the ability to do the things we knew would be received well by customers, and to Leaf Flooring who took care of the lot and saved my back!
