Meet Shaq Hinkson and his powerful story about how to
create and run a successful company.
The constancy, the effort, and the conviction of reaching a
purpose are, in short, the best motivation of an entrepreneur.
Trusting your potential and guiding every step towards the
achievement of a goal is what can differentiate a successful
person. A clear example is the entrepreneurial journey of
Shaquille Hinkson, a 27-year-old who has become a reference
as an entrepreneur.
A worker from a very early age, “Shaq” as he is popularly
known, started 11 years ago in a car wash. His passion for
cars grew and advanced to the point that, after being out of
work for three weeks, he started his own car wash. This would
be his first venture.
The determination to do what he is passionate about and the
vision of becoming a successful person led Hinkson to
continue his journey in business. Noting the low demand from
companies related to vehicle detailing, he decided to take this
path, which he already knew.
However, his inexperience in business made the way a little
complex. It was not easy at the beginning, but his eyes fixed
on his purpose always led him forward. He invested in time
and money to grow his business, at the age of 17 he already
owned Nicks Professional Touch, a high-end car detailing
Set Your Sights On The Goal
Hinkson’s path and probably many other entrepreneurs were
not easy at all. Inexperience, criticism, and little support were
some of the bumps in his road. However, none of them was
decisive to make him give up.
The reason for his persistence has been mainly keeping his
eyes on the goal and not on the road. He assures that, from
the beginning, he did not expect it to be easy, he simply
concentrated on what he wanted to acquire and what he
needed to work on to achieve it. Progressively, the results
came. Not without first investing time and all his money into it.
“I spent almost $20,000 to put my truck together. I didn’t get
any help from anyone because not many people thought the
business would be a great idea. I used every last dollar I had,
but after I spent it I was very proud of myself.”
Be Patient While You Work
One thing that has characterized him throughout his
experience has been the patience to wait for things to come
as he works persistently for them. He did not despair at any
time and when he saw his business going slow again, he found
a way to reinvent himself without abandoning any of his goals.
Because of the winter season, it was too cold for people to go
and wash their cars. This decreased the demand for income.
So, he decided to reinvent himself as an entrepreneur. He
purchased chemicals to create his own car wash products and
with his girlfriend’s help, he started doing it continuously.
Soon after Hinkson started, he was already multiplying his
income, which allowed him to expand and not only sell
cleaning products, but also car detailing devices. He called
this new business Nick’s Professional Supplies.
The effectiveness of their products and services earned him
great recognition. Soon it would have become a reference as
the best car wash store and the finest store for the care and
detailing of your vehicle in the city. Aspects that he would not
have achieved without patience and his capacity of
Grow and Make Others Grow
Not satisfied with the success he has had, one of Hinkson’s
greatest qualities as an entrepreneur has been his ability to
grow and help others along the way to do so. In addition to
generating multiple sources of employment from his
companies, he has spent time in a training process for young
people who wish to become entrepreneurs in their industry.
Nicks Professional Education is an online class-based training
program where young people have the opportunity to acquire
the skills and abilities to become entrepreneurs in the vehicle
detailing business. Hundreds of young people around the world
have had the opportunity to engage in this area with great
Initially, the project was a face-to-face class. However, in the
wake of the pandemic, it had to be reinvented and done
online. What made it even more remarkable was that young
people who do not have the possibility of traveling can take
advantage of this program from anywhere in the world.
Currently, Hinkson is focused on his business growth. He plans
to expand his brand around the world and advance in showing
the quality of his products and services so that everyone can
recognize his work.
