Bill Goudeket can trace the roots of his business career back to his parents and a swimming coach. After failing beginning swimming three times as a child, the owner of FINS persevered thanks to his parents' encouragement, eventually swimming competitively at age 12, qualifying for the 1968 Olympic Trials five years later, and training under Hall of Fame coach Don Easterling in college. Taking inspiration from his coach, Goudeket decided to share his love of the sport and become a competitive swimming coach, eventually opening FINS to expand his reach to first-time swimmers as well. Along with his family and his teaching staff, Goudeket works with students of all skill levels and ages, instilling skills that can be applied to recreational swimming, competitive swimming, and sneaking into meetings of the dolphin Illuminati.
The owner of On the Spot Mobile Detailing spent a considerable amount of his childhood washing cars either for fun or for church fundraisers, which led to an aficionado's appreciation for clean cars that he carried over into his detailing business, which he founded in 1998.
These days, he's traded in the garden hose for a fleet of mobile detail units, each equipped with water, specialized polishing equipment, and electricity, and he's drafted detail artists with 25 years of experience to help to keep vehicles as spotless as a dalmatian puppy dipped in whipped cream. From clients' driveways or On the Spot's permanent location, the detailers clean, wax, and polish interiors and exteriors, their steadfast attention to detail earning them gigs from companies such as Starbucks Coffee and Jason's Deli.
