I have been a long time lover of limousines ever since I was little. I remember watching Dumb & Dumberer when I was still going to elementary in West Bloomfield, MI and seeing the limousine the Lloyd drives, and thinking how cool it would be to also meet a beautiful lady like Mary when doing a limousine ride.
It was always in the back of my subconscious that I wanted to some day own my own limousine. I didn’t know if I wanted to do business with it or just own one. My childhood mind probably just wanted to own one one way or another. I always liked to have nice things in life, whether it was the newest Air Jordans that my friends didn’t have yet or it was that limited edition Charizard. I always wanted to have something unique & special that is of high valued. There is this great feeling you get when you finally get an item you’ve been dreaming about for a long time.
I remember this one incident back when I was 10 years old, I got some booster packs for Pokemon cards for Christmas. I mean back then those cards were the most popular thing ever. And I remember opening through the cards and I found a Charizard amongst one of the packs and I was super delighted because it was what I was dreaming about for months at that point.
So now that I’m 27 years old and I graduated College with a degree in advertising and working for a company for few years. I’ve come to a new stage in life where I realized that being an entrepreneur is the only way to go in this world because when something gives you a significant return on investment of time like money, you work harder and you enjoy working harder. Well recently I’ve been rekindling my childhood dreams of owning a limo and renting it for a living.
I want to quite my job and become a business owner of renting limousines. Well that’s easier said and done because the more research I did the more challenging it became to see just exactly which limousine I was going to purchase for the first time.
I knew the usual fleet like befow
Cadillac Stretch Limousine
A great looking car and I wouldn’t mind starting off my limo business in Michigan with this ride but I do see this ride pretty commonly with other business owner.
The Lincoln Stretch Very Common Ride
But where the rubber meets the road is that either by coincidence or by good fortune, I was at a small local business convention and I met a man that had 25 years of limousine manufacturing and renting. He told me the key to success in the limousine business is to own cars no one has. Then he told me few of the secret of his secret and how he became the largest limousine operation in Michigan with over 70 vehicles at his disposal.
He told me the key is to get a nice limo like a Bentley or Rolls Royce that people don’t have and rent them out at unique prices to customers and let them have a really unique experience then just renting a white Lincoln limousine.
After hearing the price on one of these vehicles he manufactured I got excited because it was within my price range and I could see myself financing one pretty soon.
The limo will have all the bells and whistles of modern vehicle but with classic exterior of a Rolls Royce phantom.
More of his limo can be found at his site: http://www.limocreator.com/
He even has Corvette Limos and Ferrari Limousines although the price tag is bit out of my reach, I would like to someday own one of those as well, it is a good goal to aim for anyways.
But yea now I have to go to the bank and scrap up some money for the Rolls Royce limo and start my business within this year. That is all. In the meantime, I would like to keep posting some articles on my limousine business ventures of Michigan on this blog and keep everyone informed on what I learn and what are other cool things that are out there that can enhance a limo business to the next level.
First important thing I believe is to model after success, right now I think I found my mentor that’s the Limo Creator guy, I will keep his name undisclosed, but man he had some great insight and knowledge from his 25 years of experience.
