After spending time working in a local warehouse, 19-year-old Jag Jhuti knew this wasn’t where he saw himself working. Jag remembered a dream he once had to start his own business. What was he interested in? Jag had loved cars ever since he was young. This is where his micro business idea started. Jag took classes at a local institute, which well prepared him to work with automobiles. After this training, he opened Revive!, a mobile car and van repair service. Currently, Jag does work in paint touch-ups and vehicle damage. The surrounding area has been incredibly receptive to Jag’s business; every day has been filled with orders and requests. What is Jag’s plan for the future? “I will spend nine months to a year getting myself established and building up a healthy customer base.” Spot on, Jag!

I love hearing stories like this! It’s great when someone really works hard to follow their dream. Repairing cars is a great trade to get into as there will always be cars that need repairing!
