Get To Know Bentley Brandon “The Car Wash Guru”

When you first thought about starting your business.
Honestly, when I was a kid, I always dreamed of having my own business but I started working for my last employer at the age of thirteen. I give credit to my mother as she encouraged me to work and I paid close attention to my former boss and how he operated his business. Eventually, I purchased books to educate myself on how to start a business.

What was your motivation?
I think ultimately my motivation was to serve clients, customers, just generally people that needed our service. But on the other hand as an entrepreneur and self-employed, I think my motivation is freedom having the freedom to do what I want when I want and how I want from a professional standpoint.

What advice would you give someone who is stressed about their business?
Being stressed or worried is normal you don’t know what to expect as this is a new journey. I say the most important rule is to invest in yourself. Don’t be afraid to buy the help books, pay for the courses or invest in people who have prior knowledge about growing successful business.

Growing up did you have a mentor?
My mentor situation is a little different my mentor died long before I could meet him. But I stumbled across his teachings which help me build my Confidence and then I mentor myself to be honest because nobody has done what I have done in my industry.

How do you feel about your challenge to wash the most cars?
I feel like it was the biggest challenge in my life. I had to physically train and mentally train for the Guinness World Record event washing 100 cars by myself. Then I played every other role far as the promoter as well as finding all the sponsors, etc. Like anything, nobody will believe in you first but keep going don’t Quit and eventually everybody comes running to your parade. Celebrities from all industry and has heard about my 100 cars wash story and now looks at me as the face of the car wash industry. But I Humbly feel like I’m a living legend now and I think God for his strength for me to wash 100 cars two times in 2018 and 2019 and doing it again this 2020 on National Car Wash day which I am the founded it on my birthday July 14. So for the forever my birthday and Guinness World Record is set on my birthday. That’s super cool!

Would you encourage someone to have a mentor?
Of course, I think you should have a mentor and I would love to help the right person or people invest in their dreams to become reality.

What can we expect from you in the future?
We have various books, and products, called Backseat Pledge helping parents with their children keep the car clean. We also have Car Wash sports, the best of the best competing in the competition. We also have several TV shows pilot that’s we are pitching to large networks. We are just changing the whole car culture.
