Hater’s gonna hate

This article from The Drive does well to draw parallels from industry envy and how leaders suffer from envy in the industries they disrupt. He points out that he loves his car and Tesla is way ahead. He points fingers at all other car dealers and accuses them of not stepping it up. And points […]


Sentry Mode 2.0 (or 3.0?)
