Good episode? Give it some love!
Ryan Turner is the founder of Krauthouse Motorsports, an auto repair shop that specializes in Volkswagen repair.He also operates the VWDiesel.net and Vdubshirts.com websites

Ryan began repairing cars in his early 20’s. Once, to help pay his daughter’s dental bill, he bought a used VW Jetta off of Craigslist for $200, repaired it, and sold it for a nice profit. He bought, repaired and sold several other cars and in approximately 1 month, earned enough to cover the cost of the dental bill! This experience eventually led Ryan to a stint working on cars at a friend’s auto body shop, and later to continue to work on cars on the side while holding down a day job. At the same time, Ryan was reading business books by authors like Dan Miller and TIm Ferriss, which inspired him to create his own business.
