“You don’t need to be the biggest. What you need to be is the best. And the question is, What are you called to be the best at?”
— Troy Duhon

And Troy doesn’t only sell cars across a large network of dealerships. He also gives back to communities, currently feeding over 4000 people per day and building orphanages around the world, through the Giving Hope Foundation. This activity helps him build relationships with partners, retain employees, and create a “purpose for the profit.” Troy Duhon brings incredible mind, heart, and soul to our industry, and if you implement what you hear on today’s episode, you’re sure to create value in your automotive career.

Episode Highlights:

  • How to train and incentivize employees to compete with Carvana and rental car companies by buying cars “off the street”  
  • Why the chip shortage will end with OEMs paying more money to the chip manufacturers (Troy’s been talking to OEM CEOs)
