In 2011, I invested in and launched a car detailing center at the premier shopping mall, High Street Phoenix, in Mumbai, India. This venture gave me a sort of trial-by-fire baptism into the world of business, teaching me how to run and monetize a business.
Over the course of time, with the help of my team of dedicated workers, I managed to create a brand awareness and loyalty amongst visitors to the mall. Weekend business was particularly hectic with our center running well beyond its 9PM closing time.
Within 2 years of opening, the business began returning profits which was extremely satisfying for me on a personal level.
Prior to my shift to New York to live with my wife, I sold the business. Below are some photographs of the center built and operated by me. It remains one of my proudest achievements and will always be my first child!
