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." And he introduced me to a dark gray, 1997 Saturn SC1. Which 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 in the curves of her door panel.
My Dad taught me a strong work ethic, integrity, and to take pride in my work. This got me into management at nearly every 9-5 I’ve had. And in May of 2016, I realized the problems I had at those 9-5's came from teaching entrepreneurial principles. For this, "The Man" thanked me by treating me as replaceable. My Dad told me, "If you want to do it your way, start your own business." So I fired the 9-5, to start a mobile detailing business.
“My way” was to operate in integrity, with a passion for excellence, all while empowering people and to create opportunity for people I worked with. And drove my pristine, Sunburst Pearl Orange, 2013 Honda Civic Si (with 144,504 miles, that I detailed as often as I could) with the trunk loaded with supplies, to my very first detail job...RIGHT next door to that 9-5 I JUST fired.
I then found 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, logo or tagline. But I definitely needed a business card design. Today!
So I spent the day at my Grandpa's computer to research designs, pictures and also reached out to friends/family to find 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 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. To strive for excellence without sacrificing people or integrity for “the mighty dollar”. "We would 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. Because my goal was to build this platform to help others who shared the same passion, 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 by adapting 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 as we strive to help good people, who run good, professional businesses succeed in their own endeavor!
