Until just recently, auto detailing was never a profession that ever really interested me.
I always thought that I would end up going to business school and becoming a businessman or a stockbroker or something along those lines.
However, recently, my friend asked me to help him out with his professional car detailing service. I was between jobs for the moment and he needed some help for a few weeks. So I told him that I would help him by filling in and doing some of the jobs to help out while he looked for someone else to hire for the business. Well, amazingly enough, I took to the auto detailing business like a duck takes to water. I absolutely loved doing the auto detailing jobs and it didn’t even feel like work to me most of the time. I never told him this, but I think that I would have done the auto detailing work for free because I found it to be so satisfying and fun. My friend was thinking about expanding his business and turning it into an automotive customization shop that also does auto detailing. When he told me that he was going to start doing vinyl wrapping, window tinting, vinyl lettering for cars, and exhaust modifications, it was like I had found my true calling. I decided to put business school off and help my friend grow his business instead. I think we will have a great business if we do everything just right! I’m excited to be getting in on the ground floor, so to speak.
