Hey! My name is Jimbo Balaam. I have owned and operated Jimbo’s Auto Detailing in Southern California for the past 9 years. In that time, I have successfully grown my business from ZERO clients during the worst economy since the Great Depression, to one that generates a six-figure income. During this time I’ve had multiple people tell me this was the worst time in history to start a business and on top of that a business that was more of a “luxury item” than a necessity. I strongly disagreed with what others were telling me and decided to launch anyway.
As I scoured the Internet for tips and tricks on all things Auto Detailing I began to notice a theme. There was plenty of info about “How to Detail Your Car”, but very, very little on what to do once you actually know how to detail your car and want to take it to the next level and make it a thriving business. I quickly discovered that I was going to have to figure it out the “old school” way: Trial, Error and Prayer. Over the past 9 years, I have done exactly that. I have made my own map, blazed my own trail, and discovered my own way to successfully start and run a “recession proof” business that provides me the ultimate schedule freedom. The result has been years of steady growth and a fantastic income, with multiple weekly accounts and hundreds of regular clients.
The Auto Detailing Podcast was started out of a need to give back to the community that has given so much to me. When I first entered the auto detailing industry it was like pulling teeth to get any good info from quality detailers. In today’s society with the Internet and such, there is plenty of info out there for newbies to digest. The problem is, there is a lot of bad information out there. My vision is that The Auto Detailing Podcast be a FREE resource of quality information for people looking to start their own auto detailing business, or car enthusiast that wants to detail their car faster and better, and even seasoned pros that are looking to pick up some tips and tricks!
