    Re: Pictures and Comments- Roadshow Class at The Wax Shop

    More...


    Just to share, one of the things I really like about all our classes is that they always attract what I call,

    High Caliber People


    I don't ever remember having anyone in my class that doesn't jump in head first and get their hands dirty.



    Different types of learning

    I understand people learn differently, for example some people learn best by listening to someone talk, looking at a picture in a power point presentation and writing down notes. I actually retain knowledge best when I take notes. It could be that maybe my class simply attracts people that learn best by DOING - not via these other 3 methods of information input.


    Or maybe my class attracts ALL 4 types of people and learning styles and if that's the case, I apologize for the lack of chairs and classroom time.

    Re: Pictures and Comments- Roadshow Class at The Wax Shop

    Thanks Mike for coming to The Wax Shop and teaching all of us a lot of tips and tricks you have learned over the years.

    I would recommend your class to anyone. I have been detailing cars for 20 years, and I learned some new processes that I will continue to use throughout my career.

    Whether your new to professional detailing or a car enthusiast you should find a class close to your area and make the investment. You will learn a lot about detailing and meet some great people in the industry.

    It was a genuine pleasure to finally meet and work with you Jim. You guys run a 5-Star operation there at the Wax Shop!

    What would you say was one of the more interesting tools or techniques we covered in the class?

    Different strokes for different folks I guess but for me, I’m just not an “academic” style learner. Plus it’s way more fun actually getting down & dirty with a real life experience experience.

    In terms of say, a “newbie” taking a Mike Phillips class to get some time with all types of different tools in hand to perhaps make a decision on what tool to purchase, I cannot think of a better way to do so. The difference between sitting down listening to someone telling you how good a tool is compared to finding out with the tool in hand ACTUALLY using it as you intended to use it (& on some very cool cars I must say) is incomparable in my opinion.

    A few years back I was almost about to hand over a BIG chunk of cash for a bicycle (I’m a sucker for a cool bike) & this wasn’t just a normal bicycle.





    Now I read all about it, watched the YouTube videos, looked at all the pictures I could & walked around this thing a fair amount but BUT for some reason I decided to take it for a ride before handing over ALL my pocket money ...

    I hated it! I wanted so much to love it but just plain hated it.

    Just like polishers - sure there are many great tools on the market but some you will gel with better than others & it may not be the one you expect. You’re gonna figure that out in a Mike Phillips class for sure.

    Pictures and Comments- Roadshow Class at The Wax Shop

    Intensive detailing session but I bet everyone had more than a lot of fun and walked away being even better at the craft than they were before.
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.
