Charlie Silver interviews journalist Robe Biddediu and Objectivist Club
President Karen Reedstron.

job working on Gov. James
Blanchard's campaign as an
Oakland County field direc-
tor. He stayed on board as
part of the transition team.
Next, he secured a job as
the community development
director for U.S. Rep. Sander
Levin, D-Southfield.
"I didn't like political
life," he says. "Your job is
only to keep that politician
in office. I was looking for an
out and decided to go into
business for myself."
Silver then started reading
trade publications for
several different professions.
A regular customer at a 10-
minute oil change station in
Pontiac, Silver was curious.
He started reading.
After he discovered that
drive-through oil change
shops were thriving on the
east and west coasts, Silver
decided to purchase land for
the first Oil Dispatch.
"It made sense," Silver
says. "I didn't know
anything about the oil busi-
ness, but I didn't know
anything about politics
when I got into that field.
"I am a voracious reader,"
he says. "I had faith in my-
self."
With the help of his father,
Donald Silver, who co-signed
original financing papers as
partner for the first store,
Silver bought property in
Southfield at Eight Mile
Road and Inkster. It took

seven months to secure
proper building and zoning
permits.
"On day one, we were
busy," he says. "The first
one went very well. I started
paying myself a salary after
two months."
The second shop opened in
Redford; a third in Farm-
ington. Silver then acquired
his father's portion of the
business. His brother, Steve
Silver, joined the business
after the Farmington store's
opening.
Those who know Silver say
that although he appears to
be dogmatic about his views,
he is a strong, able busi-
nessman with a zealous pur-
suit of success. And, they
say, he is an independent
thinker.
Adds his brother, Steve
Silver,"Charlie is incredibly
driven. He does not know
how to take no for an an-
swer. He is never willing to
accept that something is not
possible."
Silver is always in the
market for new oppor-
tunities. Recently, he
became a distributor for the
Phoenix cookie, a high-fiber
meal substitute sold
throughout the metropolitan
Detroit area in health food
and other specialty stores.
"I love multi-level
marketing," he says. "By
selling these cookies, you get
others into the business.
