How To Sell Auto Parts: Lessons From ‘Tommy Boy’


Recommended Posts

“Tommy Boy,” starring David Spade and Chris Farley, is the ultimate movie about automotive parts. In fact, it might be the only movie in which auto parts play a fundamental role in the story.

While Tommy Callahan (Farley) and Richard Hayden (Spade) aren’t counter professionals, their cross-country journey in the 1995 film can serve as a valuable resource to anyone who sells auto parts for a living. These clips can teach you what to do – well, mostly what NOT to do – when trying to make a sale.

1. Don’t take “no” for an answer.

2. Guarantees are meaningless.

3. Relax – and be yourself.

4. Don’t try to be too clever.

5. Don’t set anything on fire.
