    Tessa Stowe, Happiness Path Finder

    Tessa Stowe, Happiness Path Finder

    Tessa Stowe wants to see a world where people know how to be happy and are happy most of the time, no matter what significant events have happened in their lives.

    An event or crises often causes us to "wake up" and realize that being as happy as we can be is urgent. The event or crisis that delivers this wake-up call could be something like the loss of a loved one, divorce/separation, illness, loss of a job, a financial crisis, or a natural disaster. Or it could be waking up one morning asking, "Is this it? Surely there must be more to life. What did I miss since I'm not as happy as I thought I'd be by now?"

    Tessa's goal is for no one to miss out on being as happy as they can be because they don't know how to be, or they are following the wrong formula. For many years she was following the wrong formula for happiness. She was doing all those things you are "supposed to do." She ended up being busy, stressed out and unhappy, and it almost cost her everything.

    Join our interview with Happiness Path Finder, Tessa Stowe, and discover:

    - What you can do to be happier
    - How to fit this happiness regimen into an already full day
    - How to get yourself to do those things that you know will make you happy
    - How you can access the benefits of happiness
    - Happiness is a learnable skill

    Tessa Stowe is the founder of "Saying YES to Happiness" and helps those who are ready to move forward and be happy after a significant event has sucked happiness out of them. Tessa does this by teaching quick, easy, fun, and effective happiness practices that you can fit into your day.

    Tessa is NOT a counselor, a therapist or a psychologist in happiness. Instead, her happiness expertise comes from two main areas: real life and extracting the gems from mountains of information and research by happiness scientists and scholars.

    Thomas Schmitt - Automotive Management Professional on Building Relationships Is Key to Managing a Successful Car Dealership

    Thomas Schmitt - Automotive Management Professional on Building Relationships Is Key to Managing a Successful Car Dealership

    In this episode, Thomas Schmitt, automotive management professional, discusses how building relationships is key to managing a successful car dealership. Thomas has noticed that many dealerships are still viewing customers as numbers rather than as people.

    Tom Chesser, owner of Solutions Plus made an appearance on this episode of Main Street Mavericks Radio. Tom provides custom-tailored solutions for business owners who need to gain an advantage in the market place. His slogan is "Solutions that put more money in your bank account."

    Thomas goes on to say that everything that happens in a car dealership is about relationships, from the customer to the bank to the dealership employees. In order to get happy customers, a dealership needs to show that they are willing to work with the customer. Because dealership management is so overwhelmed with paperwork, they don't have the opportunity to review how their sales team is making sales.

    Thomas has extensive experience directing multi-franchise dealerships from small to high volume scale and has been acknowledged for his superior ability to recruit, develop, train, and retains top talent across all areas of the dealership. As an award-winning management professional, he has a strong record of success in directing dealership operations to increase sales, profitability, market share growth, and CSI scores and improve used car departments. He has excelled in providing leadership, strategy, and visioning in architecting and executing successful turnarounds of several underperforming and down trending dealerships. His expertise encompasses multiple brands and price points, including Infiniti, Nissan, Hyundai, Kia, Honda, Toyota, and Chevrolet.
