This weeks interview is with Todd Earsley, President of My Shop Assist Inc and Podcast host of “Do It For a Living” I met Todd through mutual contacts in the pro-touring industry and recently attended the FM3 road trip. He normally drives an Evo at racing events but in the recent FM3 road trip you may have seen him driving a bright yellow Camaro.
Todd has been around cars and business his whole life. When he was in high school he bought a 1969 Camaro “barn find” that he fixed up with his dad over his high school career. Of course it got out of hand and according to Todd was a little too nice for a high school car. After that experience his college education followed those same lines of interest and he obtained degrees in automotive and business. Todd’s father was an entrepreneur so running his own company is ingrained in his dna. He told me that it is more fun to do what you want to do than to have other people run your life.
Todd and co-founder Kevin DuBois noticed there was a need for a way to track a project at a performance shop. They developed an application from rudimentary beta versions and have been revising and updating it into a very capable and powerful management tool. My Shop Assist allows the customer to watch the progress on their vehicle as the shop works through the stages of the build.
Thanks Todd for the interview!
