Mar 22, 2023

This week on the Millionaire Car Salesman Podcast, Sean V. Bradley tackles the topic of entering the automotive industry as a second career in life. Is it possible to do? How can someone use their previous career experience to excel at selling cars? How much could you be making as a car salesman? How could being in the automotive industry change your life? Your family’s life?

Kelly Mercer is joining Sean V. Bradley this week because he made the jump into the automotive industry after being a teacher for 28 years! Kelly Mercer worked as a high school head coach and math teacher for 28 years, but during the pandemic, he took that leap of faith - retiring from teaching to start a career as a car salesman. Kelly was the #1 in gross for the entire Covert Auto Group in 2022! What techniques have helped him succeed? Listen in to find out!!


About Kelly Mercer

Kelly Mercer started in the business in June of 2020 after being a coach and math teacher for 28 years here in Texas. He started as an assistant coach for many years, then became an Athletic Director and Head Football Coach.  Coaching and teaching in Texas is a 14-16 hour day, 7 days a week job, especially during the football season.  WOULDN'T TRADE IT FOR THE WORLD, THOUGH!!  However, when Covid hit in 2020, Kelly realized how much he missed time with his family, so Kelly looked at other avenues for jobs that led him to Covert Auto Group (Chevy and Ford stores) in Hutto. 2 years later, they kept letting him come back! In 2021 Kelly was named #2 overall salesperson, using a metric that included volume, gross, surveys, etc.  In 2022, he was #3 in volume for the Covert Auto group complex and #1 in gross for the entire Covert Auto Group, which includes 5 stores.
