How Would a New NV200™ Help My Business?

The NV200 would help keep all of my items on-board and in one location which would allow me more time to grow a clientele. Beyond the savings and financial benefits, the NV200 would finally complete my mobile business. I currently operate by borrowing my parent's vehicle (the good ol' minivan) or one that is kindly offered to help me live my dreams. Borrowing vehicles is not safe and does not portray a professional image - the NV200 would put that to rest. It has been a great challenge, to say the least, but challenges build character and provide opportunity for a positive ending. To win this contest...it would be a surreal moment in my life.

How Would I Design My Dream Van?

This is a question I have answered probably a hundred times - very fun to think about. So many ideas that I have thought of. I would have shelving units on each side of the NV200 (interior) to hold all of my polishes, microfiber towels, detailing accessories, etc. I would have a sliding mechanism installed on the flat/bed of the interior. I would bolt my generator and air compressor to it to eliminate heavy lifting and increase setup time/efficiency rates.

Why Do You Deserve To Win?

I am a young entrepreneur and educated risk taker (28 years old). Like I said in the statement above, I believe that people should follow their dreams and do what makes them happy. Very few people seem to take this risk and I think it's a shame. I understand why people do not, however - steady income, instant quality of life, insurance, health benefits, you name it. They would simply ask: Why sacrifice all of that for something that isn't guaranteed (like starting your own business)? Me: Why not? I deserve to win because I am not afraid to chase my dreams and follow happiness, something I wish more people would have the courage to do. Unlike many other people, I've started a business using my own capital - not inherited money, grants, loans, gifts, etc. So here I am, striving to find the opportunity that will give me the chance to live my dreams a day sooner. Hard work and smart work will pay off soon. www.mintyourcar.com
