Finding a Mentor in the Automotive Industry


[Music] my name is Michael Brandt I’m from Chattanooga Tennessee and I own and operate a custom fabrication of mobile welding service by the name of GarageBand LLC working in the automotive industry is very exciting for me I’ve done the desk job working for material handling equipment and I feel like I’m more involved I know more of what I’m doing I work better with my hands than pushing papers or filing emails though I like to be more direct on with my customers and it’s it’s a great it’s a great industry so unfortunately had a really negative and destructive past that I was able to eventually get my way out of and I think that the biggest problem I had was the people I chose to surround myself with right we’re not winners and so then I became what they were but if somebody wanted to get into this automotive industry I think that you have the best mentors available at this show that care about the next generation coming in it may not be the same type of car that you would drive right so they’re always continually growing if we don’t find those people to bring them into our industry then then our sport our sport or an industry will will suffer so my best advice would be for those young people to come to these shows get plugged into SEMA meet these people that own and operate these companies and tell them that hey I want to be like you in this industry you know success to me is what I can leave behind you know to the next generation and that net that’s that’s something I really enjoy passing on
