Hi, I’m Tim Shaffer & I am a business coach.
I help business owners make more money & gain control of their lives and their auto repair shops.
My Dad bought Dale's Service Center in Davenport, Iowa, back in 1977. I grew up in the auto repair industry and didn't think I wanted to make this my lifetime career. I went to college to study business management and marketing, but as fate would have it, I circled back around to work for my Dad. In 2007, I bought the business from him.
Over the years, I have served in every role within the business. I've been a technician and a service advisor. I have built systems to help automate our processes and make them more efficient. I am an owner who has had to deal with numerous challenges. I have lived in the trenches and I feel that I have earned my hands-on MBA in Automotive Business from what I have learned.
I am a firm believer in coaching, and I've received mentorship from coaches and training groups since 2000. I remember the first day I learned what a coach did, and I knew that someday, I would become a coach myself. Fortunately, Chris Cotton, a man whom I have known for several years, helped me to realize my dream of coaching others.
I am excited to help other business owners grow their business and make a positive difference in their lives. Currently, I want to help shop owners successfully get through the current uncertain times caused by the COVID-19 epidemic. I want to help them be profitable and successful. Over the long term, I would love to hear people say that because they worked with me their businesses are stronger as a result. I look forward to the opportunity of working with you because I believe we are stronger together.
