Amazing Young Businessman- deserves recognition!

I recently had my vehicle repaired at MCB Customz in Warrenton, VA ( ) I am firstly 110% satisfied with their work; but the reason you may be interested in doing an article on this guy is because he is a whopping 23 years old!!! When I first walked in, I saw a young lady sitting at the front desk, I was greeted with a smile, and offered a drink while I was waiting on the owner to come speak with me. When the door opened and a young guy who looked no older than 16 came through I assumed he was one of the staff. He introduced himself with great confidence as Matt Bobst, and showed true concern for my vehicle (he even asked if everyone was okay after the accident.) I was amazed, I just had to ask his age, and how long he was doing this for.. not that I questioned his work, but for the reason that I have a 20 year old son at home who has no clue what he is going to do in life yet, which i don't find outside of the norm.

Matt, the owner, walked around my vehicle with me to give a quote. He made sure that I understood everything, and gave me multiple options in repairing my car. I asked him why his name was "mcb customz" and he went on to tell me his compelling story. He has worked in the industry since he was like 16 or 17 and was a helper and worked his way up. He was asked to help a painter, and he quickly learned the trade, having a natural talent obviously. Keeping major insurance companies such as State Farm, Nationwide, etc... it sounds like he was a key employee to his former employer's business. He said he was making triple amount of what some of his friends were earning yearly, and the reason he had to leave was because when the economy crashed, so did his income, forcing him to find another job. Matt said he was on the hunt for quite some time, when he decided to "try" and open his own shop doing what he loved to do the most, custom paint work.

His story was Awesome. I couldn't believe and still can't believe that he is such a success! He explained he does work for the Washington Redskins players, and all of the dealerships in the area. I guess the astonishment lies in the belief he had in himself that he could even attempt to open a business in the midst of this economic crisis, as well as to sell his work to big guns like he has.

If I wasn't recommended, and hadn't seen his work, I wouldn't have believed he would have been capable of what he does. He has employees, and treats them very respectfully. While we were talking, I noticed the people he had in the shop working were happy, and loved what they were doing. I asked him how he kept his employees happy attempting to crack him for more information to see if he really knew what he was doing in all aspects of the business, he replied, "I only hire people who are as passionate as I am about this industry, I want them to be recognized for their great work just as I am. I guess the incentive to them is the same incentive for me, that's to make it big one day." Matt said he has never stepped foot into a school or had any training after high school.(When I asked him if he had a degree in business.)

Seriously, I don't ever take time to compliment anyone anymore these days, especially not this much... but as a supervisor myself, I just was amazed at his passion, work ethic, and confidence. I'm not even a car person, I just so happened to get in a fender bender and saw his review/ratings on google, and decided to use Mcb Customz.

I'm sure if you interview some of his customers ( Country Chevrolet,Select Motors Sales, Mike Wells of Wells Auto) They would be glad to give great testimonials as to how awesome this kid is. I am submitting this story to other local news stations as well, in hopes to give him the recognition he deserves.
