Entrepreneur, local car dealership owner John Hiester releasing first book


ABOUT THE LOSS OF MY FRIEND AND COLLEAGUE. BILL WAS A BRILLIANT SCIENTIST AND MENTOR TO MANY. NOW HE IS A PUBLISHED AUTHOR. THE BOOK IS CALLED, WHY JACOB MATTERS. THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO VISIT WITH US. WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE TITLE. AND JACOB WAS A REAL PERSON. JACOB IS A GUY THAT WE HIRED. EVERY BUSINESS CAN RELATE TO A JACOB. IT IS THAT GUY THAT CHECKS EVERY BOXSTER CAREER MINDED, ARTICULATE. WE ENGAGED HIM. HE WAS SUCCEEDING. AND THEN HE TURNS IN HIS NOTICE. WE PUT A LOT INTO THE PROGRAM THAT ATTRACTED THE PEOPLE TO THE INDUSTRY. THE STORY GOES THROUGH HOW I WENT AND CHASED HIM DOWN. AND HE HAD A GOOD REASON FOR LEAVING. HE SAID, I GUESS WHAT YOU ARE ASKING ME IS, I AM NOT STAYING. AND HE LISTED EIGHT OR NINE REASONS WHY HE WASN’T STAYING. I BEGGED HIM TO STAY. I SAID, GIVE ME A CHANCE AND I WILL TRY TO ADDRESS THESE THINGS. THIS BOOK SHOWS YOU HOW WE ADDRESS EACH OF THESE ISSUES AND THEY WERE GOOD ISSUES. I IMAGINE FROM A MANAGEMENT STANDPOINT, THERE HAS TO BE A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF INTERCEPTION GOING ON. STOPPING AND REALIZING WHAT YOU WERE TOLD. IT IS HUMBLING. THE BOOK TALKS ABOUT HOW THE STUDENT BECOMES THE TEACHER. IN THAT SITUATION, I COULD SEE IT. WE TALKED ABOUT CORE VALUES. EVERY COMPANY HAS THEM. EVERY COMPANY HANGS THE PENDANT ON THE WALL. WHAT JACOB REVEALED TO ME WAS THAT, YES, WE USED THEM AS A WAY TO FIND OUT WHO FIT THE COMPANY BUT WHAT HE SHOWED ME WAS THAT THE CORE VALUES WERE NOT JUST THAT BUT THEY WERE A PROMISE FROM ME THAT WE WOULD SURROUND HIM WITH PEOPLE WHO EMBODIED THOSE CHARACTERISTICS AND IT CAUSED US TO GO BACK AND LOOK AND SAY, SOME OF THE PEOPLE WE HAVE IN LEADERSHIP DON’T NECESSARILY EMBODY THESE. THEY ARE GREAT FOR WHO YOU ARE BRINGING IN BUT DO THE PEOPLE YOU HAVE DEMONSTRATE THAT? SO IT WAS EYE OPENING AND HUMBLING. I THINK THE STORY DOES A GOOD JOB OF SHOWING PEOPLE THE MISTAKES. OBVIOUSLY IT WILL BE A GREAT RESOURCE FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE IN MANAGEMENT. SOMETHING HOPING TO ADVANCE INTO A MANAGERIAL ROLE. WE WANT TO GET OUT AND GET THAT. WHERE CAN YOU GET THAT? YOU CAN GET IT AT AMAZON OR BARNES & NOBLE. THE BEST PLACE IS TO GO TO WHYJACOBMATTERS.COM. THERE IS A LINK. IT IS A GOOD PRICE. IT TELLS YOU MORE ABOUT THE STORY AND THE BOOK. AND IT IS NEAT TO CONNECT WITH AN OLD LOCAL AUTHOR. AND SOMEBODY WHOSE NAME YOU HAVE DRIVEN PASSED OVER THE YEARS. I LIKE THAT CONNECTION. WE WISH YOU A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF SUCCESS ON THE BOOK. THANK YOU SO MUCH AND THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME HERE. JOHN EASTER IS ALSO A PROUD PARTNER WITH CBS17 AND
