Alas, Alex Sarchione said Josh Gordon has not yet sold his 1st car. But he’s coming in early, staying late, committed to learning the trade

Honestly I think it takes a certain type of person to successfully sell cars. I mean, we’ve all seen that type of person and stereotyped them as a “used car salesman.” Hell we even see cheap, gaudy suits at Macy’s and say, “Used car salesman.”
So, I’m not surprised Josh Gordon hasn’t sold any cars yet. In fact, I’ll be shocked if he sells more than 5. Buying a car is one of the biggest purchases a normal human society member can make. It’s second only to a house. So presumably you’ve done your homework and, when you sit down with someone and decide to buy, that someone is going to be a real professional.
Sure, Josh Gordon will bring a few extra people in and they can look at him and tell their friends that Josh Gordon told them all about the power steering and how this whip has bluetooth capability for their cool new iPhone, but when they really sit down to cross the t’s and dot the i’s, they’re not calling Josh Gordon’s number. They’re grabbing the guy that’s rocking that brutal suit you saw at Macy’s and putting their John Hancock right next to his before driving off into the sunset with their underwhelming BRAND…NEW…CAR.
