  • Fish Stink From the Head
    Wednesday, May 1, 2019 12:00 AM
    ETE REMAN’s founder, Sam Loshak, is known for his many insightful and pithy statements. We’ve regularly refer to his statements as “Sam-isms.”
    One of Sam’s most frequent reminders to ETE’s leadership is “fish stink from the head.” What Sam means is that the worst smelling part of a dead fish is its head. But what Sam really means is that most problems within a company can be traced back to its leadership. Since you’re reading this, odds are that you’re a leader within your company. Odds are, I’m talking about (and to) YOU.

  • Reman U: Fire Your Center Manager
    Monday, April 1, 2019 12:00 AM
    I know that’s a strong title, and an unfair one without qualification. I promise I’ll explain in detail just after I tell you about my last trip to Chicago.
    My wife and I took our two older daughters to Chicago for two nights of fun in the city. We interacted with the trendiest brands – we stayed at the Waldorf Astoria, dined at RPM, took spin classes at SoulCycle, and went to see Hamilton. And fun it was!

  • Not All Customers Are Good Customers

  • If You Like It Put Your Brand On It
    Friday, February 1, 2019 12:00 AM
    Our name is on a lot of stuff: stickers, hats, shirts, lanyards and, of course, pens. It’s also on some pretty niche stuff: Klement’s beef snack sticks (“Nice to Meat You”), VIN decoding mouse pads, beer mugs, bobble heads – and we come up with new, interesting stuff to brand all the time, partly because our favorite customers, vendors, and even our own employees really like cool, new stuff. Who doesn’t?
  • Tools for the Excellent Manager

    I use the word integrity as opposed to honesty when talking about advertising because technically and legally an ad can be honest but at the same time can lack integrity if the offer is too difficult to understand, has too many hoops to jump through, only applies to a product in very short supply or one in which the offer has an end date that a consumer doesn’t have enough time to respond to. If you are looking for examples you can find them in many of the newspaper, coupon book, radio, TV or internet ads you see every day.
  • Performance and Racing Can Help Your Bottom Line Perform
    Friday, February 1, 2019 12:00 AM
    Gone are the days of easy profits in the transmission rebuilding industry. Cars of today are complex and more difficult and expensive to diagnose and repair. The quality of manufacture is the best it’s ever been; longer-lasting transmissions, longer factory warrantees and lease intrusion all mean less available work for the shop.
  • Making a Bad Choice the Right Way
    Thursday, January 3, 2019 12:11 PM
    This is a bad Reman U. I mean it. It hasn’t been thought through, agonized over, contemplated, speelchecked or proofreaded. I didn’t have a blinding insight nor did I have one of those everyday experiences that suddenly feels like an analogy for good work/life decisions. What I do have is a deadline, a commitment – ultimately, a promise. I would rather sign my name to a bad Reman U than break a promise. So, this is a bad Reman U, but maybe that’s a good thing.
