BOSTON - Would you like your repair facility to be busier? Would you like to grow and improve your profits? Are you looking for simple and effective things you and your staff can do to grow? If you answered YES to any or all of these questions, the JASPER “Strive To Thrive” program will benefit you.

“Strive To Thrive” was designed by JASPER’s Customer Advisory Group to help independent garage owners (IGOs) grow and be more profitable. The program has been tested in major cities with amazing results. Some IGOs have reported some super results in just 60 days! 

The cost to attend Strive To Thrive? Four hours of your time, initially. If your spouse, child, partner or key Associates want to attend, they are welcome too.

Doug Bawel, President of Jasper Engines & Transmissions, is the presenter of Strive To Thrive. His resume reads like the “Who’s Who” in the automotive industry:

  • 1973-1976 - Ruxer Ford, Youngest member of the Ford 500 Club
  • 1976-Present - JASPER Engines & Transmissions

Doug’s real passion is helping others. He believes in the success of the small independent business operation and has devoted a large portion of his life to helping others. In 2003, Doug was named Business Man of the Year by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.

“During the presentation, we will share over 50 ideas that work,” says Bawel. “Only ideas that work will be shared.”
