What Dealer Members are Saying

Listen... We Get It.

It’s frustrating to leave the store and attend an event designed to help you grow, but you waste your time and money listening to nothing but “pay-to-play” experts disguising their pitch with glorified speeches and workshops.

You attend, hear a few things you like, return to your store and nothing significant actually changes.

What would happen if you participated in the same mastermind methods taught by Napoleon Hill and used by business icons like Henry Ford, John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, Elizabeth Arden, Mary Kay Ash, Jeff Bezos, and Elon Musk?

“One of the chief roles of any business is to render your competition irrelevant!” – David Spisak

That’s what you’ll do at Business Bourbon & CigarsWe work together during mastermind sessions to help each other accelerate growth and solve each other’s business challenges and obstacles – infused with bourbon, cigars, and fun.

What started as a group of individual car dealers has become a unified and unstoppable force for excellence. This exclusive event improves your leadership skills, client experience, marketing, sales, and profitability. 

Business, Bourbon, and Cigars – make the decision now to attend this exclusive automotive leadership retreat.

Space Is Extremely Limited

Business Bourbon & Cigars is a true mastermind format that works best in small groups.

Therefore, the mastermind roundtables are limited in number. This event will sell out quickly because current dealer members have first right of refusal and have already registered.

So, if you wait, you’ll miss your opportunity and have to hope seats open up for the next event. Apply Now!
