Hidden Gems: Meet Isaac Lagunas of A&A Auto Express Detail

Today we’d like to introduce you to Isaac Lagunas.

Hi Isaac, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I started working in the hospitality industry since I was 20 years old. It was there that I learned many things from cleaning carpets and upholstery all the way to leadership practices that I implement each and every single day.

I have always been interested in the aesthetics of vehicles over their mechanics and performance.

Washing and cleaning my own vehicle was always a therapeutic experience for me and after seeing so many of my hospitality co-workers with side hustles, I decided to that detailing vehicles could be my side hustle.

I would constantly think about starting the business but would never go past the initial thinking step until one day (October 2019) I said to myself, “It is either now or never!”

My first two paying customers were my best friend Rene and my close friend Rick. If it wasnt for them, I don’t think I would be where I currently am today. They gave me the confidence by allowing me to work on their vehicles and allowing me to work on a routine that has come a long way since.

I would also like to mention two other entrepreneur friends of mine, Reubens and Braulio whom I have learned vastly from. They have taught me that by supporting each small business owner can make a huge impact.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
One of my earlier challenges was getting my name out there and getting recognized. As an introverted individual, it can be very intimidating putting yourself in the limelight when you naturally seek to stay away from it.

We’ve been impressed with A&A Auto Express Detail, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
A&A Auto Express Detail offers mobile vehicle detailing services in the Central Florida area. From express exterior washes and interior cleaning to paint correction.

Do you any memories from childhood that you can share with us?
When I was a child, both of my parents had very demanding full-time jobs. I remember one day, my dad took me to a park playground before going into work and playing for about 30 minutes to an hour. He has always been the type of individual to put others before him. As a father myself, I seek to follow the same footsteps with my two sons.
