    New to the forum and to detailing

    Hello! So about a year ago, when I was 1 year left in my undergrad that I have taken my sweet sweet time finishing, I detailed my car. And to my, and everyone else's surprise, a new passion was born. Since I've been busy with school I haven't been able to put a lot of time into detailing but I have been slowly acquiring some supplies and detailing my and my spouse's cars when I can.

    So for the last yearish that I've discovered the joys of detailing I've been thinking about it as a career. My degree in sociology doesn't really make money or even really have a lot of career choices unless you go to grad school, which I had planned on doing but now that the time has come I'm not sure I want to and am sorta looking at detailing as a part-time career. I'm not quitting my current job any time soon at least. My hope is to maybe do advocacy or volunteering to use my degree that way even if it never makes money and then perhaps use my current job and detailing as my main sources of income. I'm not sure, we'll see what happens.

    So for now, I'm just going to spend as much time detailing and learning about detailing as I can.

    Welcome to the forum Spencer!

    Nice to find something you like doing and also is a career choice too. The power on the mouth to mouth when beginning is hughe. And also social media to show case your work. Family and friends to get vehicals to get started with.

    And an awesome forum like this to stay on top with all products and methods and all the rest that's in to detailing.
