My Journey Toward Car Literacy

I Married A Car Guy: My Journey Toward Car Literacy

Welcome to the non-automotive automotive blog. My name is Debbie Nol, and I have been the Business Manager at Arie Nol Auto Center since 2000. I have a unique perspective, as I am not a ‘car person’ but work in an industry filled with people passionate about vehicles. It gives me the ability to share what I’ve learned over 20 years and hopefully help you navigate the world of car repair and maintenance more comfortably. However, posts will not always be vehicle related. I love to share observations and story’s from ‘auto world’ with shoes and cats thrown in for good measure.

I’m glad you’re here, and I look forward to you getting to know us a little bit better through this blog!

Give Thanks Every Day

Give Thanks Every Day

I was just reading something that said that you should have a gratitude journal and write in it each day. The goal is to find a moment, person, or event to be thankful for and to record it. Why? Because no matter where you are in life, no matter what you’re going through, there is always something to appreciate. The point of the article was that by journaling something positive, you overshadow any negatives and give them less space in your life.

I’m thankful for the people that I work with each day. We truly believe in the Team Arie Nol philosophy— not just in the workplace but in our personal lives as well. We’ve all had to be there for each other during big life events; births, deaths, health issues, etc. All of it has happened in the time we’ve worked together and the support our team shows for one another humbles me each time. They’re here because they have a love for the automotive industry and automobile repair. We hired them for their skill and attitude and we’ve built a team that I enjoy working with every day.

I’m thankful for the customers that trust us with their vehicles, the vendors we work with that support our business, the small business community that continues to grow and support one another, and the ability to work in a family-owned business with my son and husband every day.

Be thankful. Even if you’re not writing it down, take a moment to notice the positive things that happen in your day. Some days, it may just be, “Hey, I didn’t spill my coffee down the front of me!” or, “I didn’t slide off the road into the ditch!”. We all have those days.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Arie Nol Auto Center.
