"I have benefited from the study group in so many ways: getting training ideas for district people and clerks, using time management, hiring new people, and increasing gross profit. Hearing numbers on expenses such as insurance, payroll, etc. helps a lot. Being able to hear and see comparative gallon vs. profit, not only for our group but the total of all groups, and being able to draw from experience on new units to establish a pattern whether to build or not is very helpful. Hearing best ideas which are usually very professionally done give me great ideas to take home."
