OWNING A powersports dealership is like walking up a down escalator while juggling and singing “The Star-Spangled Banner,” with people throwing rocks at you. As if that weren’t enough, someone decides to set fire to the escalator. Not a pretty picture — or an easy task.

Employee issues, insurance regulations, tax implications, building maintenance, bank negotiations, and OEM policies and procedures nag at your boss constantly. It’s a never-ending barrage of demands. If the guy who owns your dealership has lost his hair, now you know why!
