My customer, Bhas came in to have his second oil change done. While waiting he came in to use the invitation for test drive which I emailed him? he test drove the 2013 Mazda Miata and liked it. And we gave him a trade in value on his 2012 Mazda 3 at $12500. But he was on his way to his appointment and could not show him all the numbers. Hope we could get him back soon.
You have hidden treasures:
Today message at lakewood was beautifully described By Joel Osteen that everyone of us has hidden treasures that may come out at any moment. He described how our today’s distinguished guest Susan Boyle who had struggling life since child birth and even the doctor who helped deliver her told her parents that they could not expect much from her. But at the age of 47, she lost both her parents and unemployed, she then participated the singing competition that shook the world. And now her music CDs were sold millions of copies. What she did before the opportunity to participate in that singing competition was
: always sang at her church and at home to entertain her sick mother and kept believing that the best is yet to come. And one touch of God’s favor had taken her to a place that she never dreamed of before.
Lakewood, 20 sept. 2013
Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it for me.
I used to hear this from Mom and Tony Yeung, ( my friend who was a big businessman )too. If you have the chance and the capacity to help somebody who is really in need, do not think twice, please help him. It may not be in the monetary term, it may be your time or your encouraging words. You will be rewarded abundantly.
Joel Osteen gave an example during his sermon his dad John Osteen gave some funds to a neighboring Hispanic church who lacked of funds in the middle of its construction. Since then, Lakewood church has been receiving donations from everywhere.
We ended up this month less than what we targeted. We were not doing right, relaxed and accepted that September was slow. We did not do the deal like we used to do when Steve first came in to Mazda. We let the customers leave without being quoted the best we could do. We started with the Internet quote without the destination and the last week of the month we changed it again because many customers complained that it was deceptive.
Today,, Thursday, 19 September 2013 after calling and confirming my clients’ appointments, I went to HPD, Permitting Center on Washington Ave, to have my sales license renewed. When I got there the lady in charge told me that they required a background check/finger prints since 3 September 2013. I was given a form and get it done at A MorphoTrust USA office. As soon as I got to my office I went online to set up an appointment online with MorphoTrust. And it just so happened there is an office within walking distance from my office, Russell & Smith Mazda. There was no more slot for today so I set one up one for Friday, 2:40pm. I went there today at around 4:45pm just to verify the document they require Fast Finger Print Pass. To my surprise they helped me today instead tomorrow because the other two appointments they were expecting had not showed up yet.
Today, Friday, 20 September 2013 I got to the HPD, Permitting center at 1:56pm and checked in to apply for the sales license renewal, the lady checked my background check report and they had not received the full report yet from MorphoTrust, USA. So I have to return one more time.
Tuesday, 24 September 2013 I went again to the HPD, Permitting Center on Washington Avenue, Houston and did not take long and got my sales license renewal because they had received the full repot now.
Cost for the finger prints online $42.64 and the sales license renewal is $60. Hope this article will help save time for those who need a sales license.
At around 10:45 am today, Wednesday my appointment Maggie showed up. And she decided to get a 2014 Mazda CX 5 Touring White with Black interior. So I showed the deal to Mica and told him that I had to match our competitor’s price which was about $200 loss and for a dealer trade one she would pay our cost. Mica said who gave that price to me. I said Steve normally would do that and Santos took it over and searched for a dealer trade. While he was searching, I told him that she would take the one we had but had some additional accessories that would leave us about $550 loss. So Santos worked on the one we had on the lot and Maggie agreed on it but her husband wanted to take the roof rack off. So Santos confirmed with the service advisor that it could be removed. However after being removed it left two holes that we had two replace two bars on the roof and would cost us another $100. So we ordered the parts and would come in in two days’ time because the bars are too long to be overnighted.
The service advisor learned a new lesson now that when we take off the roof rack it would leave
Two holes that we have two replace two new bars.
Erick, First Time Visitor to Lakewood Church
Sunday, September 8, 2013 when I was walking from Lakewood parking Lot to the sanctuary, I was approached by a young korean, who lives in Brisbane, Australia, and he asked me the direction to go to the sanctuary. So I took him. Since he was first time visitor so we had the privilege to be ushered to the front seats. He was in Houston because he participated in a Golf Tournament. He was familiar with Lakewood, he met Joel Osteen in Sydney, Australia and watched him on TV as well. He is active playing guitar in his church. After the service I asked him if he would like to shake hands with Joel Osteen, he said yes. So I took him to queue by the book store . While he was waiting for his turn to meet Joel, I got him a book, I Declare, by Joel Osteen so that he would have something autographed by Joel, he was very pleased. After that we walked to Cafe Express to have some coffee. We had a wonderful chat. He told me how his father was healed after attending David Yonggi Cho’s healing service and his father was unchurched then.
