Motown Supreme

1-13-09 Apex, NC... Most of you know what my hometown is. My license plate says D-TROIT, and I drive a H 3 ALPHA... There is no doubt where my heart was born and raised. All year, Detroit has taken a beating. From the Mayor scandal, to the first with $4.00 gas, to the last place Tigers and the no place Lions; even Michigan Football had a tough year. Right now, it is the middle of a chilly, snowy January... It is currently 21 degrees with a little snow as I write this. The town of late has been bruised, beaten, and put away wet... err frozen wet...

But the town is truly upbeat, with the focus on the beat. Fifty years ago this week, Berry Gordy Jr. borrowed $800 to start Motown Records. The town came to life that day with music that will live forever. Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder; powerhouse voices equated with the greatest ever. The Supremes, The Vandellas, the Temps, and the Miracles WOW...

With the 2009 Auto Show and the historic Motown Sound, Detroit has good things going. It is a tribute to the hard working people who work and live in Metro Detroit. The car business is heading back, the Lions will win a game and there is nothing like Diana Ross singing "Baby Love, my baby love..."

We all can learn from the high energy, salesmanship, dedication, and hard work of Berry Gordy Jr.

Happy selling!
