Probably not. I distinguish between a friendly ongoing relationship with customers and the relationship that I have with friends.

Money changes hands, it's business.

The Reace and Tammy model had shop work abailable after the original purchase. They had a legion of word of mouth sales with money going to ambassador owners on a regular basis. Brand loyalty was developed, they put on great rallies where help from owners was welcomed, they were generous with swag bags and prizes for the “bingo” games. Sent boxes of goodies to many rallies and on and on. Total immersion seemed only natural to them and their congenial staff. I don’t feel bad “being on my own” when it comes to repairs but it’s hard for me to think about some owners being able to do work the old “ Escape” was happy to do.

And none of that, from either direction, is contingent on what happens to the company they no longer own, right?

My understanding

Nothing is forever.....and nothing lasts.

And so it goes.

LinkedIn keeps sending me those types of things, sometimes for C-suite executive positions thereby demonstrating that they clearly have no clue as to how extremely limited my abilities and my tolerance for interaction with others are.

But, my real concern here is - do you think they fired Karl for not having enough hair?!? Will there be a lawsuit? Inquiring minds want to know!!!
