    The First Social Advocacy Learning Community The Quantum⁵ learning sustainment process is best described as the first Social Advocacy Learning Community (SALC) ever built for automotive. Typical training relies on a human, from a company, to deliver the training and at best involves some online video to support initial training. Sometimes they select a dealership champion, which is code for requiring a good manager at the dealership to add a new job to their plate – training the team. The Quantum⁵ SALC, for the first time, takes long form training and breaks it down to snackable content, adds the energy of the Quantum⁵ AI engine, which is able to understand everything from learning style to human motivation and delivers the content journey. These content journey’s are fueled by enabling people to have fun, play the game of win and learn more, and allow people to access relevant topics versus forced topics and, most of all, have advocacy of when, how and how long they learn. For the first time, dealership team members will find a place that is for them and allows them to keep up their skills so they can improve themselves and their income.

    Success Comes with Al Salas

    Success Comes with Al Salas

    Automotive professional with a great track record the automotive finance and insurance industry. Skilled Negotiator, Business Planner, Retail and Sales Operations. Above all I value honesty, transparency and good will.

    After a long career as a F&I professional and a lot of soul searching I decided to start a new kind of F&I agency that focuses on relevant, specific and continuos training.

    F&I profits are more important than ever in todays market, and there is increased scrutiny from several sources for dealerships today.

    It was frustrating for me to see the lack of training and support dealerships and F&I managers are lacking from their F&I providers.

    That frustration evolved into a BURNING DESIRE TO HELP Dealerships and F&I professionals become their BEST through Continuous Training, Support, and The Best Dealer Participation Programs available in the market.

    Through F&I Direct every day we make a difference in how F&I is viewed.

    We promote an attitude of service, honesty, and high standards of performance that enables Dealers and F&I professionals to enjoy great profits and success in the Business Office with the best customer satisfaction.

    We don't pretend to know it all, but we sure know F&I.

    We stand by our training as one of the most complete and involved F&I trainings ever seen by most, and we guarantee it.

    Turn Adversity Into Triumph with Marcus Aurelius Anderson

    Turn Adversity Into Triumph with Marcus Aurelius Anderson

    Marcus Aurelius Anderson is a proud Veteran, Bestselling Author of “The Gift of Adversity”, TEDx & International Keynote Speaker, Mindset Coach to Leaders, CEO’s and Entrepreneurs, Lifelong Martial Artist, creator of the Acta Non Verba Movement and host of the Acta Non Verba Podcast. 
    While preparing to deploy with the U.S. Army Light Infantry, Marcus suffered a severe spinal injury that left him paralyzed from the neck down. After dying on the operating table twice, the surgeons saved his life, but told him he’d never walk or use his hands again. 
    After months of anger and suicidal depression, having no other option, Marcus started doing some brutally honest soul searching, looking for the lesson to be learned from his injury. Once he started seeing his Adversity as a gift instead of a curse, something miraculous began to happen…
    Marcus now speaks, inspires, and teaches others to use their Adversity as a catalyst to actualize their personal definition of success in every area of life and business. His message teaches us how we can use our own Adversity to make us into better warriors, leaders, entrepreneurs, and human beings to create a better world.

    Sales and Marketing Unified with Scott joseph

    Sales and Marketing Unified with Scott joseph

    What's my passion? Simple... I love to get sales and marketing to operate as a unified, high-performing machine.

    I started my journey in the automotive industry selling cars long before my car dealerships or J&L Marketing was even a thought. Today, my role is the same in all of the companies I'm fortunate to own and lead. I focus on innovation, strategic alliances, improving business plans and the overall vision.

    I've built teams who are passionate about what they do and work hard to stay a step ahead with the latest tools and techniques. They are constantly learning and testing, always applying their latest findings to drive game-changing returns.
