Spic N’ Span™
Dates: 2007 – 2009
Industry: Auto Detailing
Bio: Spic N’ Span was my first small-scale business venture I started while still in high school. Due to a weakened economy and hard to find job, I decided to build my own business detailing cars. We had 3 package prices for vehicles, Small, Mid-Size, and Large. It would take about 7 hours per car and the business was generating more revenue than I could have working any normal teenager “job”. As I moved on to insurance, I closed up shop to focus on more lucrative opportunities.
