Mike Smith is the owner of WOT Auto Detailing and an all around nice guy! He built his business to meet a need in the San Antonio area for high-end, professional detail services. He's trained with some of the top leaders in the industry and isn't afraid to work with other companies to fulfill the needs of his customers. He is well known throughout the industry for his beard and the "Beard Approved" brand. But it is his genuineness and fun-loving nature that draw people in. He's built a killer showroom in the shop to give his clients a one-of-a-kind delivery experience that is sure to keep them coming back for years to come. Enjoy hearing how a kid from Silicone Valley came to be a business owner in San Antonio and friends with a group of Special Forces veterans.

Everybody has a story to tell but most don't have the dramatic swings of Justin Day's. As a troubled and wayward youth, he found himself in a bad circle where drugs and crime were the norm. Many never find their way out of such a circumstance. But he didn't let that circle define his life. His is a story of emergence from a dark and uncertain adolescence to a new life built on empathy, accountability and pride. The business he created at Detailers of Las Vegas is so much more than a way to make a living...it is a clear pathway to a bright and shiny future with a family of his own.

We decided to switch things up for this Fireside and let Michael join in on the discussion. Michael and Neil both started their company's based on their experience as customers of detailers. Michael created Urable to help level up the industry and Neil created his own end-to-end auto enthusiast empire under the iX brand. Never underestimate the value of creating a meaningful customer experience. And Aaron Ogden speaks on the value of building trust and offering a true concierge level service. The other key attribute to emulate is the value of good leadership and creating a safe environment that supports employee growth. This was a great way to wrap up our TX tour and we are so appreciative of the time Neil and Aaron spent with us. Watch for big things coming from iX in the near future!

Enjoy getting to know Steve and learning from his years of experience.
