Running a business is not an easy endeavor, it takes courage, hard work and a strategic mindset. I feel now that I am retired looking back on it all, that it is my duty to provide to new entrepreneurs a few of the secrets of how to get things done. Every year through out our long history spanning over a quarter of a century, The Car Wash Guys Team had been careful to watch changes that affected our business. One year we are watching droughts in the North Western Hemisphere and how the water supply affects our operations. We needed the water to wash cars and our countrymen need it for farming and drinking. Water is life. We also saw heavy El Nino seasons on the Western United States, British Columbia Canada, Mexico, Central America and parts of Western South America; imagine running a car wash business when it rained almost 60 days straight and we are not talking the drizzle like in the North Eastern US each year.
We believe our past quarter of a Century in the washing business has with stood the test of time. Our perseverance is a testament to our will to win the battle in the survival of the fittest in the free market system against much larger competitors and predators. Whether it is the giant bureaucracy of government or a fierce competitor out for blood or a combination of both, we will fight. We will coral the ominous beast of bureaucracy and tame the competition and save our customers from being crushed or eaten in this dangerous world where anything can happen. You are going to have to do the same in your business, but I know if I can do it with the right team, well, so can you. I am sure of it. Are you? Think on it. It seemed whatever cards we were dealt, we pressed on a rose to the occasion.

When you believe in something that strong and are committed that much, there is nothing that can stop you. Do you believe in such ideals? Will you commit yourself to the forward progression to your community, nation and business. We are that kind of a company, you can be too. If this past commitment in the last Quarter of a Century in this industry is any indication of what comes next, then I am certainly looking forward to watching our company grow as a proud parent from the sideline. Think on this.
