“It all started with keeping family members’ cars clean for extra cash for school,” Martin said. “Years later, after school, while working at a paper mill in Baldwin County, I would often hear older guys tell me, ‘find something you enjoy doing, and you’ll never work a day in your life.’

“So, during the pandemic, I decided to start offering my services to people outside of my family,” he said. “With time and hard work, it became quite a lucrative business.”

Martin said after two years of detailing cars part time while working at the paper mill, he decided to switch it to mobile detailing instead.

“I believed that being able to go to my clients’ homes and jobs would definitely increase my clientele, and I was right,” he said. “Now, I offer a variety of services, from a basic foam wash to fleet management for all business owners.”

Those interested in Martin’s services can reach him on Facebook at Sunset Mobile Detailing or through his direct business line. Contact Martin at 251-359-1265 via text or call for a quote.

“My goal is to encourage everyone to keep God first, find your passion or something you enjoy doing, monetize it and create a business,” he said. “That’s the American dream.”
