How to be a successful driver
Posted On July 27, 2021
The most common complaint from drivers is “how can I fix the car?”
In the best-selling book, The Lad, author Karen King tells her story of becoming a successful car-salesman and then starting a blog called the carfax website.
King says she’s seen a lot of changes in the industry over the past decade and that the most common questions drivers have about the car they buy today are “how do I fix it?” and “how to fix it fast?”
King is no stranger to the car industry.
In 2005, she launched the Carfax Report, a popular car-repair website, and she has since expanded her business to include carfax reports for other manufacturers and services.
“It’s become such a big part of my life that it’s gotten to the point where I have to explain it to people,” King told Fast Company.
King is a freelance writer and editor who writes about personal finance, health, and lifestyle for several publications, including Fast Company, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Daily Beast.
She currently works for The Daily Caller.
King is a licensed commercial driver and has been for almost 20 years.
She said she started her career as a sales associate at a car dealership, where she noticed a problem with some cars.
“I saw a lot more people who were selling cars who didn’t have any kind of diagnostics,” she told Fast Co. “So I figured if there’s a lot less of a problem than I saw, maybe it’s a problem that can be solved by the owner.”
King says the problem with diagnostics was that it took too long to get to a point where the owner could fix the problem.
So she set out to find an app to help her get the problem fixed in a timely fashion.
She found an app called Automated Diagnostics, which let her track and manage her car’s diagnostics and report to a phone.
King says she became the owner of a car that had been sitting on her lot for about a year, but it had never been driven by a professional.
“They’d been waiting for a customer to come in and do the paperwork,” she said.
King eventually got the car repaired and the company that purchased the car gave her a $500 cash discount.
She then started the CarFax Report, where the app provided a daily report of all the cars on her lots.
“A lot of times, the owners are the ones that make sure their cars are being driven and they’re having them checked out,” King said.
“The owner’s doing the diagnostics, and they’ve got the owner’s name, address, and license plate number, and it’s all on the report.
King said she saw a shift in the way cars were purchased. “
If the owner doesn’t do that, then I’m just getting the owner to get on the phone and do that.”
King said she saw a shift in the way cars were purchased.
She says the internet helped bring car owners and manufacturers together, allowing them to connect and communicate about problems.
King said that the internet and social media also helped her get more drivers interested in her business.
“I think that people are much more aware of what they’re buying and why they’re purchasing them,” King explained.
“When you’re dealing with a lot people and a lot information, then it’s more difficult to find the right person for the job.”
If there’s no one that knows what you’re talking about, then you don’t have the right people that can help you out.
“King and other car-dealers have also seen a resurgence in interest in their business, and King says that’s because of a few things.
King believes that the car-buyer is often more willing to spend money than the seller, and a “free carfax is a great way for a lot to come together and get together and help you get your car fixed,” she explained.
King also believes that people who own cars are more willing and able to get in touch with people who can help fix the problems they have with their cars.
“There’s so many people out there who have gotten in touch and are helping each other fix their cars.””
And that has been really amazing,” King noted.
“There’s so many people out there who have gotten in touch and are helping each other fix their cars.”
King is currently working on a book, entitled How to Be a Successful Car Dealer, and hopes to share it with a select few of her customers soon.
King added that she is also working on the new app, which she hopes will be launched later this year.
King, who is married and has two young children, has also become a teacher for kids who have been diagnosed with autism or Asperger syndrome.
She also enjoys teaching children how to ride bikes.
