The Mindset of Top Performers: Embracing Compliance

However, even for those already meeting certain requirements, there are additional steps to take.
Taking Action: Internal or External Resources?
David explores two options for dealerships to achieve compliance: using internal resources or seeking external help. While some dealerships may have the expertise and capacity to handle compliance internally, most will benefit from partnering with professionals who specialize in this field. He encourages dealerships to act swiftly, as demand for compliance experts may rise closer to the deadline.
