You now start looking at countless hours of YouTube on your fire stick and even going to sleep to detailing videos like its a lullaby, trying to remember every detail and procedure in order to master this skill.

You now become mesmerized by the latest equipment that you can purchase from Amazon, and how much more easier can that get, all you need is the money. You keep telling yourself, I need this product to be a successful detailer.

You feel you now need to get that website up and going. Have to create traction and start making money. We all have been there, if you are seriously wanting to start that detailing business.

Now you got all that equipment and your web site is up and working now you feel you're ready to go.

But wait! I need a facebook page linked to my web site. I need to promote my site and then all of the sudden fear sets in. It's only $ 5.00 to promote my business on facebook. What if I get too many customer and I can't do the work. Will I be able to deal with customers and I'm I charging too little or too much.

You're now frozen in fear and all the detailing god's are looking down on you in shame.

Then you wake up, just to hear Darren, Oscar, Bill and Larry talking to you in the background. Darren is a total nightmare, making you feel I'm not worthy and can I learn from the master with his vast amount of information.

Well you might not think it but you are now suffering from Detailers Mental Break Down. This condition is not new, I just change the name to protect the innocent. Fighter pilots suffer from what is called information overload. Just think of it like this. You have a target in sites and you are bombarded with vast amounts of information that your brain goes into overload and you shut down. What pilots tend to do is disengage from the target or fly it right into the dirt. It's a no win condition.

If you feel this way you need to step back and realize there is more to running a detail business than cleaning cars and making happy return customers.

Take time for yourself and family who you have not been paying any attention to because you have this new dream and goal. It's time to get a fresh mind. A mind at ease is a mind that is creative and can produce great out comes and growth. So take so time to sit back and relax a little. Get that feeling of success back in your detailing world.

Well I just want to say if you haven't gotten this yet. Let me break it down. Take a chill pill and relax. Get your mind together and then press forward.

Love you all and let's work together.

Timothy Lee
