DJ and URG

Just in case you’re wondering if I will be speaking at URG, the answer is Yes, but I’m not alone. We have some great industry icons like: Bill Stevens, Dan Snyder, Rob Rainwater, Ryan Falco, Paul D’Adamo, Chad Counts, J.C. Cahill, John Bessler, Theresa Colbert, Tom Bessler, Mike Kunkel, Lee Worman, Tim Wall, Jen Wilson, and my good friend, Mike Lambert. There are over 50 speakers, I do not have room to name them all. The two-dynamic key-note speakers are marvelous Mark Kamp and Inky Johnson.

Besides being a good speaker, Mark is an entrepreneur and a Las Vegas Headliner. Inky Johnson is a truly a gifted and inspirational speaker. To hear more about them and all the other speakers at the upcoming conference, go online to and review the topics each of them will be covering.

The URG Annual Training Conference is the premier event of the year in the Auto Recycling Industry. URG was created by Recyclers for Recyclers. It’s my privilege to give a book away FREE to compete with the great speakers who will presenting at the same time I am. The book I’m giving away is the #1 BEST SELLER on Amazon and sells for $16.95 PLUS shipping.  If you come to the class, you’ll receive a FREE copy.  You heard that right!  Everyone who attends is given a book and notes to take back to your yard to teach others of your team members “How Money Works”.  That is the name of my class.

I speak Saturday, August 7th at 10 AM. Come to the class and learn how the wealthy get their money and things you can do to be wealthy yourself.

Come in Thursday, August 5th to play golf in the URG Scholarship Foundation golf tournament. It is at Bear Creek Golf Course. Remember a Hole Sponsorship is only $150.  A Keep-Sake Sponsorship is only $250.  Shoes and clubs can be rented at the Pro Shop. Remember, all proceeds go to the URG Scholarship Foundation.

If you have any questions, call Jennifer McPherson at 512.677.6202.  Everything is online at  I believe this will be one of the best URG conference we’ve ever had. Why? We’re able to attend now and we’ve been ready to get together since we couldn’t attend last year. I for one cannot wait to see my friends again. We’re tired of masks and being 6 feet apart. We need to come together for the Challenge of Change. Dan Snyder said it best in a recent URG Podcast, “Bring a person with you that shows talent as a future leader.” Paul D’Adamo thinks, “By bringing a person who you see as a future manager or team leader with you to the URG Conference, you will shorten his or her learning curve to be a true asset to your team.  It would be the BEST investment made this year.”

Believe in your flag, your country and your industry! So, be at URG, August 5th – 7th in Dallas, Texas.  If you have something we can auction off to benefit the Scholarship Foundation. Call me on my cell at 770.301.4122.

I hope to see YOU in Dallas. If going to another class conflicts with attending my class at the time I am presenting on Saturday, 10AM, stop me in the hall or at a meal and say the magic words, “”.  I will give you a copy of the book, “How Money Works”.  Car-part has been so kind to me for past 25 years while speaking at their conferences and being part of the Car-part family.  So, I am passing it on like they do every day in this industry. I love They are what I call good people.

I will see you at URG, August 5th – 7th in Dallas, Texas.  Let’s be patriotic together, show our colors and open up this country!

See you next time.
