I was but a young lad when my father bought our family’s first cell phone – a bulky, indestructible son-of-a-gun that has been posthumously named “The Rhino.”
But my dad, rest his soul, was not what you’d call “technologically inclined.” He butt-dialed a lot, and this was years before butt-dialing even became part of society’s lexicon. Ultimately, all that butt-dialing led him to curse [company whose name rhymes with “Boat-arola”] for designing a phone with such terrible battery life. (*Sometime in 1997, The Rhino suspiciously found its way into the trash bin – but perhaps that’s another tale for another day.)
My riveting life story is related to automotive consulting and CRM coaching, I promise. (Skip to the “4 Reasons Why the Future of Dealer CRM Consultancy is 100% Virtual”).
Adapting to new trends and technology can feel like a burden, especially for people who are very much set in their ways, like my dad. Shaking things up, blowing away cobwebs, taking breaths of fresh air: These are not mottos by which the “non-technologically inclined” live. We like things just the way they are, thank you very much. (Like father, like son, huh?)
