Now Ask patty is at it again! One of our expert women, Amy Mattinat of Auto Craftsmen, will be a guest on the show today at 2pm EST!

Over the years Amy has done almost every job in the place. From cleaning lady to mechanic’s helper, bookkeeping and marketing, to salesperson and service advisor. From part-time to full time, she took on more and more responsibility until she became so integrated in the life of the business and the customers that she was asked to become a business partner.

She has become passionate about creating Automotive Excellence within her business. Amy feels that good communication is the essence of being able to explain, suggest and fix any problem her clients may have. She has created a business that is both pleasing to the eye as well as comfortable and fun. She spoils her client base and they love it!
