There are just a couple of days left in the 33-day Peking to Paris Motor Challenge, also known as the Peking to Paris Rally, an endurance race that stretches 7,610 miles through China, Mongolia, Russia, Slovakia, the Ukraine, and Europe. The event began in 1907 and was run with the grand prize of a magnum of champagne.

How does a start-up like Mojo Motors go about selling a product to dealers who are unfamiliar with a new digital product and technology?
As an Account Executive, it’s my job to convince car dealers that our platform will help them sell cars. I know these guys get dozens of phone calls each day from people trying to sell them something. Most of the time it’s crap, but occasionally a call will come in from someone offering a novel product that really will help them make money. [keep reading]
