    #108: Why I Don't Like Maintenance Clients and What To Lookout For in Your Detailing Business

    The idea of maintenance clients is great in your business. Every month, you get a number of clients to get their vehicle serviced. 

    It's easy work, it's consistent, and your schedule is always booked. But in our business, we don't push on building a big list of maintenance clients because it comes with its own set of problems. 

    In this episode, I'll breakdown how we handle our current maintenance clients, the problems we run into with scheduling, and what you should lookout for if you want to pursue this style of business.

60 bucks

I listened to your podcast today, April 29th. Talking about “if it’s Friday go out there and make 20 bucks” well i went out and restored some headlights and made 60. You said basically what was on my mind, just start, you have enough to start so just do it. I’ve been listening to some of your stuff and watching some YouTube videos and I think you’re and excellent inspiration. Thank you.
