Empower Your Audience with Fun and Informative Tips They Auto Know

Audra Fordin is the author of End Auto Anxiety, CEO of Women Auto Know, and owner/operator of Great Bear Auto Repair in Flushing, NY.

When she isn’t busy writing or fixing cars, Audra loves to speak about her experience as a woman who found success in a male-dominated industry.

Audra took over her family’s auto business during the Great Recession of 2008. She remembers driving past her customers’ homes on the way to work and seeing their cars parked in the driveway.

This was a sign of incoming trouble. A lot of folks lost their jobs and couldn’t afford to maintain their vehicles. After a few sleepless nights, Audra became possessed by an idea that saved her business from disaster.

Audra hosted her first Women Auto Know workshop in 2009. She collected donations from participants and area businesses, which were used to provide single moms with free repairs. Since then, Great Bear’s revenue has quadrupled.

Audra writes a column for Ratchet+Wrench, an industry magazine that is syndicated to more than 100,000 auto repair shops nationwide.
