Johnny Garlich Signs Publishing Deal With CelebrityPress To Co-Author New Book

Johnny Garlich will team with Jack Canfield and several leading experts from various industries to release the new book, “The Soul of Success Vol 2: The world’s leading entrepreneurs and professionals reveal their core strategies for getting to the heart of health, wealth and success” by CelebrityPress.

St. Louis, MO - July 14, 2015 – Johnny Garlich has joined a select group of business experts and entrepreneurs from around the world, along with best-selling author and business development expert Jack Canfield to co-write the forthcoming book titled, Soul of Success Vol. 2. Nick Nanton, Esq. along with business partner, JW Dicks, Esq., the leading agents to Celebrity Experts® worldwide, recently signed a publishing deal with each of these authors to contribute their expertise to the book, which will be released under their CelebrityPress™ imprint.

 After graduating from Stanford University in 1977, Johnny joined the family automobile business.   Starting as the used car manager and quickly moving to the general manager, Johnny was able to become the leading Volkswagen dealer in the MidAmerica territory.

His love of the nascent tech industry caused him to teach himself computer programming in the early 80s.  He used his programming knowledge to write a leasing program that propelled his father’s dealership into auto leasing of all makes and models.  His success with leasing other makes and models allowed the dealership to participate in the Van Conversion business as it was being born.  Soon the VW dealership was retailing van conversions and leasing high group imports and still retaining its lead in the VW zone.

By 1985, Johnny left the family business and started his own dealership.  With almost no capital, he was able to acquire a VW and Subaru dealership and transform it into one of the top producing dealerships in the zone. In1991, Johnny moved into the insurance business with his former vendor where he used his automotive connections to provide aftermarket services to automobile dealers.  By 1994, Johnny decided he wanted to be his own boss and bought out his former vendor and opened an agency of his own.  Within a few years, he was one of the top producing aftermarket agencies in the country.  Always thirsty for innovation, Johnny developed a series of training and sales tools to help his dealer clients achieve previously unheard of profits in their finance departments. 

In 2009 as he was closing in on retirement, he used his successful agency to help fund a new concept: providing loan-closing services for car dealers via a video conference call center.  He helped develop a unique sales delivery system encapsulated within a video conference call.  He started a new company, called Deliveries on Demand, to provide loan-closing services for auto dealers.  After several years of development, he introduced the first remote loan closing in the St. Louis market.  Within a couple of years he was doing loan closings in several states.

But the technology kept changing and when it did, Johnny decided in 2014 to teach himself the new programming and rewrite the majority of the code base himself! Johnny and his IT director changed the course of financial services by introducing a remote auto loan program for credit unions that shifted the balance of power to the member and the credit union.  At 60 years old, Johnny has written off a well-deserved retirement because he is having too much fun disrupting the financial services industry.
