Remarkable Results features weekly podcasts that aim to bring you fresh ideas that can inspire you to change or improve. There are two podcasts released each week — a service professional entrepreneur interview and an On-Point interview where the guest discusses a single subject that is industry related. The goal is to welcome successful service professional entrepreneurs to share their personal stories.

The podcasts are hosted by Carm Capriotto, a 35-year veteran of the automotive aftermarket industry.

Erb sold his shops to an investor and is now embarking on a new, exciting opportunity using all that he learned while a shop owner to drive more sales through the bays. Erb built a strong resume through the years to include Leadership 2.0, NAPA/ASE Tech of the Year and much more.
