A BUSINESS DISCOVED WHILE TRYING TO PAY FOR SCHOOL

Version 2
    I WAS IN GRAD SCHOOL FOR EDUCATION, I HAD NO MONEY AND I WAS LIVING DAY TO DAY, MY PARENTS WERE COMMING IN FROM OUT OF TOWN AND MY CAR WAS A REAL MESS. I WAS PICKING THEM UP FROM THE AIRPORT, IN TWO DAYS, SO I DECIDED TO GET MY CAR DETAILED. A GUY I WAS IN SCHOOL WITH TOLD ME HIS BROTHER OWNED A CAR WASH, AND HE WOULD DETAIL MY CAR AS A FAVOR TO HIM FOR LITTLE COST TO ME, I WAS EXCITED MY CAR WOULD BE CLEAN AND IT WOULD COST ME VERY LITTLE MONEY. THE NEXT DAY I TOOK MY CAR TO THE CAR WASH AND HAD IT DETAILED. THREE HOUS LATER THE CAR WAS DONE, I PAID AND LEFT. WHEN I GOT HOME I NOTICED SOME DIRT UNDER MY SEAT AND MY FLOOR MATS WERE STILL STAINED.I RAN OUT TO THE STORE AND PURCHASED SOME CARPET SHAMPOO, I CLEANED MY FLOOR AND MY MATS. THEN I THAUGHT TO MYSELF I JUST DID A BETTER JOB ON MY CAR THEN THE CAR WASH DID. I HAD A YEAR AND HALF LEFT OF GRAD SCHOOL, AND I NEEDED TO MAKE SOME MONEY REAL BAD. I KNEW I COULD DETAIL CARS, I WAS JUST SHORT ON FUNDS TO BUY THE SUPPLIES I NEEDED. THEN I THAUGHT I TOOK MY CAR TO THE CAR WASH AND WAITED THREE HOURS FOR MY CAR TO GET DONE. WHAT IF I COULD GO TO COMPANYS AND DO PEOPLES CARS WHILE THEY WERE AT WORK. THE CARS WERE JUST SITTING IN THE PARKING LOTS AND THE PEOPLE WERE AT WORK, A NICE CHANGE FROM WAITING IN A CAR WASH. AT THAT POINT I KNEW I HAD TO GIVE THIS A SHOT, I HAD NO MONEY AND DIDNT KNOW WHAT TO DO, THIS BUSINESS WAS PERFECT FOR ME, I COULD WORK AROUND MY CLASSES.I WAS HAVING LUNCH WITH MY FRIEND AND HER CAR WAS A MESS, SO I OFFERED TO CLEAN THE INSIDE OF THE CAR FOR HER. WHILE CLEANING HER CAR I TOLD HER ABOUT MY IDEA, SHE THAUGHT I WAS CRAZY. A FEW HOURS LATER MY FRIEND CALLED ME, SHE SAID SHE WANTED TO LEND ME THE MONEY TO BUY SUPPLIES AND START MY BUSINESS. I ASKED HER WHY SHE WANTED TO LEND ME THE MONEY, WHEN SHE THAUGHT MY IDEA WAS CRAZY. MY FRIEND SAID SHE KNEW I NEED MONEY REALLY BAD AND IF I WERE GOING TO FINISH GRAD SCHOOL I HAD TO START MAKING MONEY ASAP. I GOT SOME SUPPLIES AND MADE SOME BUSINESS CARDS AND I WAS ON MY WAY. EVERY DAY BEFOR AND AFTER CLASS I WENT TO ALL THE COMPANYS AND DROPPED OFF MY CARDS. A FEW WEEKS LATER I WAS DETAILING CARS 5 DAYS A WEEK. THE NEXT SEMESTER I HAD TO TAKE NITE CLASSES SO I COULD DETAIL IN THE DAY TIME. A YEAR LATER I FINISHED SCHOOL GOT MY MASTERS IN EDUCATION. I WAS OFFERED A FEW TEACHING POSITIONS, WICH I TURNED DOWN. I OWNED MY OWN AUTO DETAILING BUSINESS, I LOVED WHAT I DID AND MADE A NICE LIVING. THAT WAS IN 2005 AND I HAVE BEEN DETAILING EVER SINCE, AND I STILL LOVE IT
