Description: Auto Details
Actually I’m into antique cars and I keep then clean and in tip top condition. It is a hobby of mine and over time people asked me what I did to keep my cars clean and looking good. Then a few people asked me to do their car and I bought the products and started to perform the task at hand.  I realized I used a lot of gas mileage and was burning out my products extremely fast. So I started the business to write off the products, mileage, and to get paid for my skill. Next thing I know it grew and more and more people came to me and I was established.

NAICS: 561 Administrative and Support Services
Description: Water damage service
I came here to this country in 1989 and got involved in the cleaning business. After a couple years I started to clean the floors in malls, dealerships and movie theaters. I attained these business opportunities through contacts I made along the way. In 1996 I bought a van and carpet cleaning machine. I cleaned carpets from then on, and about two years ago I found out about the water remediation industry/business. My goal at the beginning was to start my own business in water restoration because of the equipment I already had. Instead I, along with my business partner, purchased a franchise.

I jumped into this business because it is family owned. I did not finished college nor my brothers, so getting a job somewhere was kind of hard and eventually we started going to the old warehouse and started working. I did not have any initial goal when i started here, but eventually we decided to take the business to a higher level. My brothers and myself got the goal to grow the family business and we did. We worked really hard and after some time we needed a bigger place. We did not move until it was really necessary, so thats how we moved to this warehouse.

If I could put it simply, I would say that passion got me into business in general. As far as my current business goes, however, it was previous knowledge of the type of business which enticed me to get in the action. I also have a personal love for business, the risk, the rewards, etc. For my current business, my goal is to expand and buy more franchises right now.
