The Secret Behind This 'For Women, By Women' Auto Repair Shop

While one entrepreneur empowers women, she relies on technology that keeps her connected, optimized and ready for business.
By Dell Small Business

For Patrice Banks, empowering women is her number-one priority.

The former engineer founded Girls Auto Clinic, an auto repair shop staffed only by women. Banks wrote the “Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide” about being a confident driver and hosts workshops educating women on common car-care issues like engine upkeep and how to change the oil.

To further appeal to Banks’ female customers, the shop also includes a “Clutch Beauty Bar”—a salon where women can spend time while their vehicles are worked on.

While Banks is busy empowering women, Dell powers the technology that keeps her shop humming along. Not only does Girls Auto Clinic run on Dell PCs, such as the Inspiron Small Desktop and XPS Tower, Banks relies on her Dell Small Business Technology Advisor for solutions to her tech needs.
