How did you first begin to work in the automotive aftermarket?

I started in the industry Wilma destroyed my previous workplace. It so happened that a friend I played in a band with worked at DiabloSport and they were looking for some people that might be good on the phones- I had plenty of phone and sales experience, so as it turns out the biggest natural disaster in my life turned into the biggest opportunity of my life! I couldn't have asked for a better stroke of luck!
