Well, I really want to do this full time detailing business of mine. I figured this out today when i got a call. I have a 2 year degree in Criminal Justice and im going for my BA degree in Criminal Justice. I work for a company now as a undercover security, catching shoplifters. Anyways, my old company I worked for knew I was interested in this part of their corporation, but at the time didnt have a opening. I moved about 1 hour away and the money wasnt worth the commute. The position I had paid a little over 12 dollars an hour. Anyways, the one security guy is leaving, the head guy and wanted me to get his spot since im experienced I assume. The pay is a tad of 32,000 dollars a year!!! Guess what? Im turning it down to do car detailing on how dumb that might sound. Something I have wanted to do for a very long time, as a full time "Professional" and just not friends and neighbors cars when I had off from my other job. I know I might not make 1/2 of that my first seaon, but I have to start somewhere. I have been reading so much on this board, researching different methods, gathering information from other shops and much more. Im giving it my all to do this and hopefully the rewards will come. Either way, whenever i detail a car Ill be happy because of what im doing. Money isnt everything, but if your happy with what your doing, to me that is more important. I get bored walking around all day sometimes, tracking register shortages and that stuff. Im good at it, but it doesnt make me nearly as happy as thorwing down a nice coat of wax. Yes, I know I sound like a dork and turning down alot of money since im only 22 living at home. But hey, even a bad days detailing, beats a good day at work! Rich Ps: I know I ask to many questions and post alot of new threads. I try to search out all the stuff before i ask a repeat. Anyways, I really appreciate all your time and effort into answering everything as correctly as possible and all input. A special thanks goes to of coarse Scottwax for bringing his information, and once what were trial and error, now perfect combinations of products and everything else to the board! I thought i knew so much from reading, watching tapes and mastering my techniques, but I learned so much from this board. Thanks again, and a big part of my business making it will be because of the members on the board!! Keep the good job up!
