Who Is ?
It all started on a used car lot in 1999, looking for the first car I would pay for myself. I asked the salesman for "anything that looks sporty, with a manual transmission". He said, "Well, we only have one." To which I responded, "Thankfully, I only want one." That's when I was introduced to a dark gray, 1997 Saturn SC1. She quickly became my first "baby". I still remember the moment I fell in love with her, sitting beside her on a curb - watching the sunset through the curves of her driver door panel. I washed her every week and detailed her myself about every 3-5 weeks, like clockwork.
My Dad (a business man) taught me a strong work ethic combined with integrity and pride in my work. This work ethic moved me into management at nearly every 9-5 I worked. Then in May of 2016, I realized the problems I had at those 9-5's came from teaching entrepreneurial principles to the crew. For this, "The Man" thanked me by treating me as replaceable, to which I responded by moving on in hopes of a different outcome in a new environment. My Dad told me, "If you want to do it your way, you must start your own business." So I fired the 9-5 life, to start a business that offered mobile detailing services.
“My way” was to operate in integrity, with a passion for excellence, all while empowering people. With a desire to create opportunity for those I work with. I took my pristine, Sunburst Pearl Orange, 2013 Honda Civic Si (with 144k miles) with the trunk loaded with supplies, to my very first detail job...RIGHT next door to the 9-5 I JUST fired.
I soon found out about a car meet (eight days away), where I could network with those who shared my love for cars. At that moment I had very little money, no business name, no logo or tagline. Just a dream and a strong desire to make it happen. But I definitely needed a business card designed today!
So I spent the day at my Grandpa's computer researching designs and pictures, while reaching out to friends/family searching for inspiration. When my Grandpa, a retired physician, came into the office with a child’s excitement, "I GOT IT!” He said, “Have an officer throwing a bad guy onto a car and say, 'We'll get the SCUM OUT!' "
A prescription pad laying on his desk (in front of me) caught my eye and I thought, "We could be the scum prescription! Not only to clean the scum out of our cars. But be a business that would exemplify high standards, excellence and ethics. Striving to support good people, without sacrificing others or our integrity for “the mighty dollar”. We will be "The Scum Prescription!" And thus, the name "ScumRx" was born.
From day one, I started building business relationships with people who shared our ethics. The goal was to build ScumRx to be a platform to help others who had a passion to share our talents and pride in their work - with the world.
By helping and serving people, instead of money, ScumRx has thrived and grown. Because of this growth, and adaptation to client feedback, ScumRx has evolved rapidly over the years. So growth/change is one thing, those who work with ScumRx, have come to expect.
As we launch into 2022, starting our 7th year, we made our most significant changes thus far. We are now realizing our dream to strive to help good people, who run good, professional businesses succeed in their endeavor!
