About the Author
As an auto repair advocate, I’m on a mission to facilitate improved delivery of auto repair services by the auto repair industry. This mission includes helping auto owners learn how to find and work with the best automotive service and repair shops in their communities.Since 1997, my passion has led me to offer training and consulting services to automotive repair shop owners and their employees. In 2010 I added developing and optimizing websites to help repair shops brand and market their business. 2017 marks the addition of the Auto Shop Connection and Auto Owner Story podcasts and websites, along with the Dave Eastman blog.I’ve lived in the Boise Idaho area since 1980 with a few short stays away from Boise. In 1984 I married Jan, a Boise Idaho native. We have four children and eight grand children.
