Jimbo Balaam is the owner and operator of Jimbo’s Auto Detailing in Southern California. Over the past 7 years he has successfully built his business by providing his clients with exacting care and attention for their special vehicles. When he started his business he found plenty of on line information about detailing but very little about how to run a proper detailing business. Those skills he learned through hard work and effort. In addition to detailing Jimbo created The Auto Detailing Podcast podcast where he interviews successful detailers and business owners along with providing product information for other professionals in his field of automotive care.
The fear of starting something new often kept Jimbo from moving forward. Listen to how he has overcome this very common fear among people who want to do something new and different.
While attending college and working at a restaurant, Jimbo was trying to figure out what kind of business to start. When he discovered he enjoyed cleaning cars he asked his boss if he could detail his car. And Jimbo’s Detailing began.
FIRST SPECIAL CARS
His first big client in detailing was a classic car dealership that sold all sorts of spectacular classic cars.
