We celebrate Father’s Day on the 3rd Sunday of June, every year. It is an important day to honor dads and father figures alike for all that they’ve done and all they will continue to do. When asked about their own fathers, the team at Joe’s had some kind words to share…
“My dad is special to me because he taught me how to be respectful and he guided me in the right direction to become a hardworking man “
“From a young age he always did what was necessary to help his family survive. It was a struggle growing up for us, but we had a lot of good times as well and I always appreciated what he’s done. He’s been gone for 5 years and not one day goes by that I don’t wish I could talk to him again.”
“My father laid the groundwork and set the template on how to be a man and a father. Now it’s my turn to improve on it and pass it down to my sons.”
“My father was a great influence on my life because he showed me what integrity truly is. He is also my biggest inspiration professionally. I want to be just like him, to this day.”
“He has been someone who I can always count on no matter what. My dad is someone that I can trust to always have my back and be in my corner.”
“My father taught me to always do things right the first time because if it’s not done right at first, you will have to do it again. I would be proud to be half the man that my dad was.”
Fathers are versatile and can serve many roles. He may help you fix things. He may help you by sharing the right advice or telling you what you need to hear. He may help you learn a new skill or trade. He may just help you grow as a person. No matter what, he is always helping and always loving. Being a parent is no small task and going above and beyond at that role should be respected and appreciated. So, this Father’s Day take some time to show some appreciation for those who have given us everything.

January is the perfect time to wipe the slate clean and continue to better yourself! As 2016 was coming to an end there was a constant buzz around what types of New Year resolutions to make. At Joe’s, we want to help you achieve your resolutions! But, what were some of this year’s most popular resolutions?
POPULAR RESOLUTIONS ACROSS THE COUNTRY
Resolutions are universal – we all want to become better. In case you’re still working on yours, here are some of the top resolutions of 2017 to get you inspired:
• Get Healthy: Try to get active for at least 2 hours a day!
• Get Organized: No more hoarding! Go through your stuff and clear out all of the unnecessary things you’ve been keeping (you know you don’t need that cable bill from 2015 anymore!).
• Live Life to the Fullest: Get that bucket list and finally start crossing stuff off the list!
• Attain Financial Freedom: For many of us, this means improving our credit score and maybe saving a little more money this year.
KEEPING THOSE RESOLUTIONS
It is always great to wake up in the morning with a new aspiration and drive for the day but we have to make sure this isn’t just a temporary thing. “[Research shows] that only about 8 percent of people actually achieve their New Year’s goals,” said Dr. John Agwunobi chief health and nutrition officer for Herbalife. Whether you decide to start each morning in the gym, save that $100 a week, or maybe finally make a financial decision to purchase a new home or vehicle, it’s important to keep the long term benefit in mind so that you achieve the goals you’ve set for yourself.
LET JOE’S AUTO SALES HELP WITH YOUR RESOLUTION
Joe’s Auto Sales wants to be there for you every step of the way keeping you on the right track. Let us be the place you start to fix or build your credit.
