Jerome will detail your ride
April 18, 2023
There’s nothing better than a pristine ride, asserts Jerome Scott Jr., founder of Fiduciary Details.
A financial consultant by day, Jerome’s new gig takes that same fiduciary commitment to act in the client’s best interests to another area of passion — cars. Fiduciary Details offers a la carte car detailing services.
To launch his business, Jerome tapped into Entrepreneur Rising Academy, a 10-week business-building bootcamp powered by Parallax Advanced Research. He ultimately claimed the second place prize in his cohort’s pitch competition graduation this spring.We recently caught up with Jerome to learn more about his business and his journey.
Introduce yourself — who are you and what is your company?
My name is Jerome Scott Jr. I am a follower of Christ first, a financial consultant by trade, and now an entrepreneur. I own Fiduciary Details, an auto detailing company looking to offer a continuously peaceful environment through a la carte detail packages.
Why this idea?
Did you always want to be an entrepreneur?
The Launch Dayton community values are: 1. Be Bold 2. All Are Welcome 3. People First 4. Give First 5. Remove Barriers. How do you embody one or more of these values?
What identities or life experiences do you bring to entrepreneurship that helped prepare you for this lifestyle?
What is the biggest barrier you’ve faced on your entrepreneur journey?
The biggest barrier I’ve faced is my own ignorance. You don’t know what you don’t know, which in my case was a lot. Accepting how little I knew and letting go of the information I believed to be true was a long and hard process.
How did Entrepreneur Rising Academy help you in your journey?
My program experience was phenomenal! I would not only recommend ERA to others, but would say this class is a necessity for anyone starting a business.
Why do you love what you do?
How can the Launch Dayton community support you?
What advice would you offer fellow or aspiring entrepreneurs?
If you feel the call to be an entrepreneur, you’re being called for a reason. Be persistent with the wisdom you acquire and enjoy the process as much as humanly possible.
