I’m A Private Eye Looking For A Stealthy Ride For $20,000! What Car Should I Buy?

I need a new car.

But, I hate car shopping.

So, I asked my fellow bloggers and car junkies at Jalopnik, “What Car Should I Buy?”

It’s a weekly segment they do: these dudes (NOT SALESMEN) help REAL people find ACTUAL cars for sale.

And then they hilariously write about it.

Check out their advice for me.

Tell me which one I should BUY in the COMMENTS below!!

100+ Things a Private Investigator Can Do For You

Ahhh, the old elevator pitch. You know, that quick spiel describing what you do, for whom you do it, and how it is valuable to others. We’ve all got one, right?

But, when I tell someone what I do, it had better be a long elevator ride. Because, with only 30 seconds, it is nearly impossible to list everything I can do for my clients. Every private investigator has this same problem.

Why Do Private Investigator Businesses Struggle or Fail?

If you go to the recovery room at the hospital, you’ll see a lot more people with gunshot wounds in their legs than in their chests. But that’s not because people don’t get shot in the chest; it’s because the people who get shot in the chest don’t recover.

As private investigators and business owners, there’s an important parallel: Autopsies done on the patients who made it back to the ER aren’t worth as much as those who never made it back.

Here are some of the insights they shared, along with a few of my own:
