Sales is a true skill most do not possess. To me, it's more than a skill; it's an art form. Same as digital marketing. If you're paying $5- 10k for digital per year and not seeing results, a lot of that can be due to not leveraging the digital with the physical presence and hitting the streets. Digital has made people lazy. e operators who hit the street and still set up meet- ings to meet physically to complement their digital and all other marketing are the ones that win. e hustle is a puzzle…each piece is a fraction. 7/7/19: Fired Driver Wins Lawsuit For Avoiding Bad Weather Duty Nicholas MK: I agree with the driver. Safety is the number one goal. Not only for the driver and passengers, but for the com- pany as well. Shame on the company. 6/19/19: New Jersey Operator Adapts To Client Desires Nathan Spears: One of the classiest oper- ators I've ever had the pleasure to work for. Also one of the coolest accents I've ever heard. Estonia-meets-Jersey. Only in America! 6/15/19: Blacklane Rebrands To Showcase Chauffeurs Darren Buster Howell: Blacklane wants their vendor vehicles to be less than two years old, but the rates they offer affili- ates are more than 10 years old. I'm sure they don't pay their drivers enough to afford a decent suit, nor are they trained chauffeurs. No matter how you package it, it's just another Uber type service. Franklin Lasprilla: ey look great, but pay garbage. So eventually they will be forced by human nature to settle for subpar owner-operators. Good people that value their work don't give themselves away. Ad- ditionally, who wants to do business with a company that doesn't value or respect you enough to pay you a suitable fee? 6/7/19: Does The NY DOT Share Blame For Deadly Limo Accident? Eli Darland: Whatever government agen- cies do not perform their safety duties as written in law should be held as criminally negligent for unnecessarily endangering the public. It shouldn't take an accident to reveal the culprits when a simple audit would do. State governments are formed to protect the safety, health, and welfare of the public and they must be held accountable for the taxes and fees they collect in trust for services promised. Sam Rubin: Unfortunately, this is a common issue. In Utah we have tons of illegal operators with no DOT#'s for DOT required vehicles, cities that could care less, and an airport that's not even aware of multi modal passen- ger transportation. Something needs to be done. Unfortunately, Utah is a small market in the National Limou- sine Association's eyes, so we don't get any assistance or representation.
