Conversations


Bill Simmons

This is something I have wanted for a long time. A place where we can talk to each other.

It began as a place to ask questions about MasterLube, like “Why don’t you use coupons?” and “What’s your training program about?” but it quickly grew to include more interesting subjects.

We will have conversations with Rod Davidson, Terry Palm, Cali Freier, and Abby Martinsen; followed by other cool people like Russ Cherry, Elizabeth Klarich, Craig Godfrey, Rick Robinson, and perhaps an occasional international personage.

Like friends at a dinner party, there will be several conversations going on at the same time. And like any good party, there will be some people you know better than others, but by the end of the evening…

Like any good conversation, there will be a place where you can respond, keep the conversation going, or change the subject if you choose.

So welcome to the party! Join in. It won’t be much of a conversation without you!

PS.  If you still want to talk about MasterLube, we can do that as well.

If you’ve worked for MasterLube for even a short time, you know Michelle Gallagher, or at least her voice. She’s the one on the other end of the phone who can answer most all your day-to-day questions. Michelle is MasterLube’s office manager, but before her position at the main office, she worked her way through almost every position at the stores, including cashier, lube tech, store manager, and inventory manager. With more than 20 years experience, Michelle knows MasterLube inside and out.

From the Mouths of Babes & Grandfathers

From the Mouths of Babes & Grandfathers

For the past 30 years, leading up to this momentous question, I have been a runner. I am also a bit obsessive about my diet. I have a grave family history of heart disease and I have been quite successful at managing my weight, my diet, and my exercise – thus my blood pressure and cholesterol levels. 30 years ago I lost 40 pounds when I started running daily and paying attention to my health. Something I take pride in.

The past five to ten years however, with the chronometer now reading 60 years, have been somewhat of a downhill slide – especially my weight.
