We get asked how the Millennial generation is going to survive in this crazy world all the time. Well here’s a perfect example of exactly how a Millennial is taking charge and living life on his terms. Cody Price of MobileTire.ca joined us to share his journey, from starting his business and using his parent’s house as a storage facility, to buying vans, hiring people and dealing with demanding customers. He’s self reliant and serves as an excellent example of how strong and adaptive the Millennial generation really is. We had a great time chatting with Cody and hope his story may inspire someone else to live life on their terms.
Hey, it’s Tom Karadza. And we’re starting off with a couple quick announcements here. The first announcement is that over the next few weeks, you’re going to see a new podcast come out every week. But then we’re going to hit a one week, maybe a two week low and release of podcasts, as both Nick and I Nick’s actually already over in Europe with his family. But at some point, we’re both going to be meeting up with our families over there. So I’ll be gone as well. So we’re going to take a little break from the podcast schedule, and then we will be right back at at it, we’re actually already booking a ton of guests for late August and into the fall. So the podcast is actually going to pick back up and how many we will release. But you might see a little low right at the beginning or the middle of August. So just to prepare you for that. The second thing is about this podcast. This is with Cody price from mobile tire, we’re super pumped, he agreed to do this. And the reason that I want to share something about him before we begin is that this podcast isn’t just about real estate information. It’s really called the your life your term show so that we can talk about living life on your terms. And sometimes that involves discussing real estate. And sometimes that involves business building, and sometimes involves all health, fitness and nutrition and everything. This is a story of a young guy in his 20s, who saw an opportunity and Dove right into it and decided to launch his own business, he came and did some work for me on my car, I was blown away with the guy, really good guy, humble guy. I think you’ll really enjoy his story. So it’s just the journey of a young 20 year old and we all get to see his viewpoint on the world and how he’s looking at his life and his business. Really just kind of inspired by this guy wanted to share his story. So hopefully you enjoy this podcast. It’s a quick little interview with Cody price, he does a great job on it. And if you are listening to this and you want some real estate information for yourself, the best place to start where most people we work with start is one of our books. And you can get free digital copies of all our books are four of them now at Rockstar inner circle, com forward slash books. So that’s rock star inner circle.com forward slash books, you can download free digital copies of those books. And everyone asked why we give away our books for free and the idea is that maybe there’s going to be some good information there for you and maybe you’ll like us from from sharing that information and from reading that information that one day, you’ll come over to Rockstar real estate and we’ll do business together perhaps that’s the way the world works. And that’s what we’re trying to do just offer good value and hopefully be of some help. With that. Let’s get on with the show. Are you ready to live life on your terms? Is it time did take charge, real estate, business building
the economy, health and nutrition and more.
It’s the your life your term show with Tom and Nick Karadza
Are you ready? Let’s
Alright, we are live with Cody. I don’t even know your last name. Somehow you’ve gotten on to this podcast. I don’t even know your last name. What is your last name? My last name is price. The most simple last name and I didn’t know the last name. Cody Price. What background is that Price?
British? Correct? Yeah.
Your dad’s born in Canada.
My dad was born in Canada, but his parents were from England.
Yeah. Got it. Your mom to Finland? Oh, got it. Okay, got it. Okay, so the reason Cody’s here, and we kind of maybe are putting him on the spot a little bit. But Cody came and did some work for me a couple times now. I feel like you helped me on my car, you put on the tires on my car, I think I feel like twice now. You definitely sold me the most expensive tires I ever thought I’d buy in my life. And I’m not complaining, I just had to buy them for this freaking car. So I have this x five, that’s an easy drive. And it has these wide tires. I’m not even a car guy. And I needed to get winter tires for this car. And Cody quotes me out and tells me the price of these things. And I almost have a heart attack. But I go with these tires anyway. Because I know that’s the cost of the tires. And you helped me out with my son’s car. And with that, can you just explain before we get into it, cuz I’m gonna backtrack a little bit. What exactly is the business that you do?
Mobile tire services. So we come to you at your home or office and perform tire services for your vehicle anywhere you are.
And the reason I was kind of enabled by this idea is I think just your story. You’re young guy, you’re you said you said you’re 24. And I like people who are going out doing their own thing. You know, it kind of inspires me, Nick and I quit our jobs to do this whole Rockstar gig and seeing you at 24 out there hustling getting customers driving around in this fan. And the business model I think is great. Because someone like myself, I’m busy. I don’t really want to go to a garage to swap up my tires. And when you pulled up when I think you I saw you in our neighborhood with your freaking huge fan. That’s at the time it said mobile tire on the side of it. I don’t know if you have that fan anymore.
I just got a new one.
Oh, did you Okay, cool. And I’m like, What the heck is this, and I think I saw you it was dark outside and you know, I guess another person or like, you have all the equipment in the back of this freaking van and you’re like stripping tires off, you’re putting new tires on, you’re balancing them. And the person’s car is on a jack in their driveway. And I’m like, I’m just thinking this is brilliant. So I immediately took note of the URL. And then when I need to get this done, I reached out to you through your website, I think and book the service. And I was just kind of blown away. And then my son drove over a nail recently. And I’m like, okay, we’re going to go to Canadian Tire. Or you know what, maybe I’ll just get mobile tire and you came back and fix that. So the whole service is wonderful. But I want to back up. How did you get the idea? Like when you went to school? What is your schooling like high school? And then did you go to school afterwards?
Yeah, after high school, I went to Georgian College, and Barry and they have a program called automotive business. So they teach you all about the automotive sector from a business standpoint.
And with so the goal when you were going to school was always then to finish school and go into your own business. No,
not always. It was after some experience working for other companies that motivated me to go off on my own and start something.
Why did it motivate you? Just you hated what you were doing?
A little bit you I wanted to, you know, have more say and being more in control of the decisions that were being made and just start with a fresh idea and try to build something.
And so the idea to go into the automotive sector that was of interest to you to begin with, like you were just always into cars,
always loved cars, since I was a little kid playing with cars and you know, race cars, Hot Wheels and stuff. Yeah.
So this mobile tires idea for a business. Where did how did that evolve? Like? How did you get the idea and the reason I want you to explain this, as I’m sure there are other people who are like, I want to be an entrepreneur, I want to start a business, I want to do my own thing. So I’m interested just to see how that kind of came to fruition. So how did you get the idea? Did you see it somewhere else? And think you could do it? Where did this whole thing start?
Well, initially, just on a beautiful spring summer, you know, spring weekend, I wanted to get my winter tires changed over to the summers. And every tire shop I called in GTA was booked for the whole weekend. So they just said Good luck. And then I thought there must be a solution for this. So I did research and wanted to maybe create my own shop that could change tires as fast as a Formula One pit crew. And the overhead along with a brick and mortar facility is just astronomical for someone young starting their own business. So I did research and discovered mobile concept. And from that started to change tires for friends and family at their homes, and then had to invest in the equipment to really take it to the next level. So when you were
Okay, so I love this when you were doing it at people’s homes for your friends and family. What did that look like? Because when when Nick and I started helping investors, I think some people meet us now at Rockstar like, Oh my gosh, you guys have offices and there’s like a boardroom and a training room. But when we started it was like don’t come to us we will meet you at like the Tim Hortons close to the properties or when we eventually got an office The first one was the closet inside a brokerage because we couldn’t afford a real office. So what was that setup? Like when you went to friends and family at first?
Well, it started out of the back of my mother’s Jeep Wrangler. So I borrowed my mom’s Jeep and put all the the tools that I accumulated from Canadian Tire and just watch some YouTube videos on how to deal with the tire changes and started
Oh dude, so you weren’t even doing tire changes before you started this whole thing? Not even at school the program you were taking that was all in class that wasn’t
all in class all theory for the business side of it but never hands on. So
I love it. So you’re you’re basically sacrificing friends and family. You’re using YouTube videos to guide you through this. So you do it with your mom’s car and then Okay, how did you get the funk? Because the van I saw it like it’s a beautiful van with the logo on the side. How do you transition from mom’s car to thinking I have a business here? Maybe I’ll get it was that the move from mom’s car to the van? Like how did that go? Correct. So
it started out of mom’s car. Building a customer base from you know zero and getting enough clients on board asking for tire services to do the math and make sense of investing in a van and the tire machine and the wheel bouncer and the generator and the compressor and everything all the tools you need. So that’s after about a year and a half of doing it out of the my mother’s Jeep. I got all the truck stuff.
Okay, so you were living at home I imagine probably still living at home. You’re young guy
living at home until yesterday. Oh really? Literally yesterday. No way yet. God kinda.
No way. Congrats, man. Thank great. What part of town were you living?
It’s a tobacco. Awesome. Yeah. Park on Lakeshore. Oh, you’re
big time. You went big time. It’s probably more central for you to keep you know or park on Lakeshore areas. This guy went big time. Mobile tire just went big time. I think a whole reason to have you on here is to help you out and kind of see if we can promote the story. I didn’t know you’re already big time dude. But
not a lot of clients in an area. So being centralized is
great health makes sense? Yeah. Okay. So the, I’m so amazed by the total struck because that when I first met you, I asked Where are your my tires going to be stored? And I don’t know if it was just transitioning. And you were like, Well, my dad’s house is around the block from you actually storing the tires, or I used to store the tires in his basement. But then my dad said, Get them out. And then you got you you moved on to some public storage solution or something like that.
Right? Is that correct? Yeah, originally stored them in my dad’s garage garage for most of my clients, and then it led into the house. And then that became unacceptable pretty fast. After I was building bridges, you had to walk underneath to get in the house of tires. So
cool. I love all of them. So, okay, so where did you get when you went from the mom’s car to basically using your parents house as a warehouse, which I love to the van, how did you get the funk? Because that van looks pricing equipment in there is that? Again, I’m asking you questions. I don’t know what you want to share and don’t want to share. So just share what you’re comfortable with. But like, is that a loan? You take? Like, how do you get that van.
So I drove Uber for two years, and I did 3000 trips. So when I was not doing the other jobs I was doing to get the funds to, you know, invest in all this stuff. I was driving Uber and the amazing thing is you have the time freedom to do it, you know, you can turn it on at midnight on a weekend and then drive for four hours finish at 4am. And then you can just go home. So that was very helpful being able to have the time freedom. And I credit a lot of that Uber because just being able to make my own schedule there and keep the cash flow coming in really helped to you know,
get the funds. So you were driving all your drunk buddies home. Because of the midnight to 4am shift I got imagine on Uber, you’re dealing with drunk people. Any any anyone throwing up in your car or anything?
Oh, yeah, he’s a few situations like that. For sure. Unfortunately. And you’re cleaning that up?
Yeah, right. Well cleaning it up.
Yeah, you take a picture of it and send it to Uber, they charge them and and then you take it to a cleaning service. are you cleaning yourself to save that money?
Okay, do I didn’t even know that’s part about how you got made some money. So that’s great. Like I love that whole hustle of you doing that is that’s how it’s done? Totally. So you make some money from this? And then that helps you get this van in the equipment and launches you into like that’s the next phase of the business? I’d imagine. Correct?
Yeah, exactly. Had to get enough money in the bank to put down the down payment for the lease on the van and the equipment to make it all realities.
And then how do you because the biggest thing I talk, you know, when I talk to new people who are getting to business for the first time or new entrepreneurs, I’m always asking them on how they got their first customer how they get customers. Again, I don’t want to reveal any secrets here or anything. But that is something that I found is never taught in Business School. It’s never really taught in business books. Like there’s not a book on like how to get a customer? How did you was it word of mouth for you, after friends and family? How did you get the ball rolling to get enough business to turn this into like a viable business, and not just out of your mom’s car forever?
referrals, starting with friends and family, and then their friends would find out about it because I would do the best job I could for friends and family. So it’s just about doing the best job possible and not sacrificing quality for anything. And from that growing the referrals one by one. And
that was how I started for sure. Good for you. And I noticed when you showed up at my house, you had someone with you. When did you is that? When did you decide you’re going to hire someone on because as a business owner entrepreneur hiring people, I mean, when you find great people, you know, like Keith and some of the people we have here, it’s amazing. When you don’t find great people, man, it’s painful. So how was that friends and family? Like how did you find the first person to work with you?
It was friends. Definitely. friend I met in college work for for a competitor for a couple years. So having that prior knowledge, he taught me a lot on how to grow my business. So that helped tremendously. But I found out that I needed more people or some people on board to help me when I couldn’t do enough. In one day.
Yeah, cool. Okay. Good for you totally, totally impressed. And you know, I love the integrity you have in your business. Because I forget what you said to me, You were I think you were going to say my son My son’s car, which is Nick’s my brother’s wife’s old car that he drives, I think you were going to sell me, me two new tires or something. I forget why. But you were like, oh, I’ve already charged you to switch up the summers to the winters. I’m just going to give you the cost or something. I forget the details. And I’m like, hey, Cody, I really appreciate that you’re like, No, you know, you’re good customer. I think that’s what you said. That’s the way I remember it. And and then afterwards, I think you call this and you you then had a business moment or an entrepreneur moment, you’re like, Oh, I don’t really know. That’s quite right. And you asked if it was okay to charge a certain amount for that. And I just thought this guy’s a good guy, like he was going to give it give it to me for like, basically free just the cost of these new tires. But then he kind of sat back and thought, Oh, this isn’t right for my business because it wasn’t astronomical at all. It was very fair, what you were charging, and you had the guts and the courage. Those are not easy conversations to find, especially to do especially at your age. So I was like I was I was pretty amazed you did that. So I was totally impressed when you did that. I probably didn’t tell you that at the time. But I’m only gonna get this guy’s a good kid. 24 is maybe not a kid, but I’m older guy. So to me, you’re a kid. So the next phase then is getting customers through referrals. And then what kind of area Do you cover? Well, before we get to that, did you go to two hands neck? Like what was the growth beyond the one because now you have to already have one? I forget
one right now retired the first one. And then now we’re back at one. Okay. And it’s just when you’re running a mobile service, and you have you have to rely on a vehicle to to run the business, you really need a reliable vehicle. And I learned that from the start last two years have been a bit of difficult because I you know, dealing with some vehicle issues that now I’ve I’ve overcome. But that was definitely one of the most difficult parts of starting this business.
So you leased out a lemon is what you’re telling me?
God? Okay, so you got off that you got off that one? You got the new one going? After the Was there any difficulty in getting was that the major source of funding you need? I guess to get the van,
the van is definitely the most expensive.
Yeah. Okay. And then, after the first customer, what would you have a worst customer that story that you can share? Is there a worst customer? You’re smiling so they can share? Was there a worst customer story that you want to share? You pick?
Sure. It’s I mean, you
can keep it generic.
Yeah, it just, you know, dealing with people is always fun. And it was a it was not specific situations. But just trying to manage schedules and manage expectations is always difficult. So if we’re running behind, we try to reach out to the client and let them know, you know, we’re going to be a bit late. Is that okay with your schedule, if not, we could reschedule. In this case, I was given a phone number that was not the one I was meant to call. And so when I tried to reach out and make contact and and then we show up late and the customer, customer was not happy. So
not happy, you’re being very polite. So they just chewed you out on the side of the street in day
and in front of the world on Google. So that’s a
Oh, no way really. They went like live on some social media platform now
live on so not not like
that. They posted something afterwards. So if you’re real now you’re surviving the real world. This is great.
We try to focus on our Google reviews, and ask all our clients for review so people can get an idea of what kind of service we offer. And that was the one that
is not they just messed you up on Google. I
messed up the street. That’s Yeah, but you
know what I think and we’ve had our own clients tell us this when someone messes you up on Google and gives you some kind of nasty review. I think that almost makes you legitimate, because you need some of that. Otherwise, it doesn’t look like you’re real. And you know, when those Google reviews you can reply so you can kind of post back your side of the story and that
kind of thing. Of course and it’s very important to reply to all reviews and especially the the bad one. So that you can handle the situation. Well,
yeah. Wow. That’s very Yeah, very advanced of you. 24 year old, you’re, you’re growing up with this stuff. So I don’t even have to explain that stuff to you. You got this stuff all figured out. Okay, and then worst customer? Do you have it like a strange customer story that you can share with us something? I don’t even know what would come to mind but anything kind of crazy. you’ve dealt with some celebrities and stuff. I feel like too, but you might not want to share their names. But do you have any strange stuff
up? Not necessarily strange, but not I mean, some people might think strange because I’ve had some clients buy maybe four sets of tires for their one vehicle in the span of two months. Just simply because they didn’t like the feel of them or they didn’t like the look of them or the way
these are for nice super nice sports cars or something correct? Yeah, got it. I don’t think I’ve ever driven a car and thought I didn’t like the feel of the tires that I was getting for that car. Sort of these like Ferrari type cars lame. Have you have you switched out tires on Ferraris, Lamborghinis, any of that kind of stuff?
Yep. It’s It’s really all the same. But for those types of vehicles like Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Aston Martin’s McLaren’s, which up the
tire on McLaren’s correct Yeah, nice Dude, that’s like a $250,000 car. More More. Holy smokes.
But it’s all the same. It’s just those vehicles have low profile tires. So it’s much more difficult to remove them and install them without damage drinking.
And if you damage the rim on something like that,
at the start, yeah.
Holy smokes. And God he’s yet
Not yet. But God is going to be like, you could do some god, he’s over a million dollars. The rim is going to be more than maybe the condo that you just good for you, man. Okay. And then what about now? Like, how are you looking at the business now? Like, what are some of the challenges that you’re facing? are you managing cash flow? Okay, as a as an entrepreneur and a business owner, right? You have people you have to pay, right? You’re Are you stocking you’re probably not stocking inventory. So that’s kind of good. You buy and then you buy it on demand. But are there any challenges that you’re going through that you’re just kind of navigating through right now?
Yeah, absolutely. I mean, at the start, it was easy to run a lean business, because it was it was me alone, and the truck and the equipment, and that was it. So keeping the expenses down is nice. But the most difficult part now is managing people and finding the right people for the job. And that is just going to be continuous struggle that will eventually get a little bit easier.
Yeah, totally. And yeah, and that’s normal. So you should know that I’m sure you have other people telling you that as well. That’s completely normal, right? It’s, you’re just gonna have to keep working until you find the people that work well with you. There’s no secret to that. And we’ve tried every different strategy for filtering out people or getting to people’s real motives when they start working with you and that kind of stuff. It’s difficult. So don’t feel like that’s your you know, you’re not the only person going through that kind of stuff, right? That’s totally normal. Okay, and then now that you’re kind of running, so how long have you been in business now? You’re 24. So I feel like since 2013 Oh, so you started in 2013. Dude, so you started this business back in six. We’re talking six years ago when you were 18. So you started this just at the end of high school? Correct. Okay, God, I didn’t know that. So you started the business and then you were going to how long were you going to school after high school?
I did two years in college. Okay. So
right through college running also thing. Yeah. And then after college, you went to work for someone else. But you were still running this on the side is kind of like a side hustle.
Exactly. Good for you.
Very cool. Most people don’t do that. What caught into you to started at 18
my dad’s an entrepreneur in a different field. Okay, um, that watching him growing up, you know, working those endless hours. And yes, all the sacrifice motivated me.
I feel Yeah, cool. Because as a business owner the way you are, your business never leaves your mind. It doesn’t matter where you are. You could be out even with friends and stuff, and there’s going to be still stuff that’s going through your head. So it’s hard to check out and you’ve been doing that since you were 18. So kudos to you, man. Really? That’s really cool. So what about where do you see it now? So now your operational your big time because you live Parkland Lake Shore area, your customers around there? Are you doing business right around the GTA? Like what’s your geographical area that you cover for mobile tire?
The core would be I’d say Oakville, Mississauga, Toronto. And I service more West as well. So Burlington Hamilton and go Milton Woodbridge bond Scarborough. We are expanding out east a little bit more. So you know, Ajax Asha, Pickering, we get calls from But mostly, you know, the central GTA area.
And then as far as the seasons of booking, I guess you’re you’re probably finding it challenging to handle the rush. Because now that your name is getting out there a little bit. You must be having a lot of people wanting to book, you know, summers to winters all at the same time. Know.
Exactly. Yeah, it’s a very seasonal business. So at least with the season, summer to winter tire changeovers vice versa. We get a surge all in, you know, October, November, December. And when the snow is about to hit, everyone calls at the same time. So it’s really, all year, we’re preparing for that. Three months of craziness. And
I forgot your question. Oh,
so but if people want to, but I’m just thinking selfishly, for myself right now probably should even say this publicly on the podcast. But if I want to book your service, I guess now we’re in the middle of summer. So people, you get a rush, probably end of October, right? So you can do you start accepting bookings just at any time, like if I go online now. And I book it, you’ll pencil me in for that date. Now?
Absolutely. We encourage booking, you know, in advance, so you secure your time slot so that when the snow is on its way, you’re not upset if we have a bit of a waiting time.
Yeah, got it. Okay. And then it’s an interesting business because you’re storing my tires. So you almost always lock in repeat business. Like either you’re not going to get my business either if I if I sell my car, and just need a different car and use all seasons or whatever, maybe I’m not I’m only going to call you them when I have a flat or something like that. But in general, you have the product. So you’re the storage of the tires almost enforces repeat business for you. So you’re just Are you storing you? Are you seeing that kind of repeat business on whoever you store tires for just as almost always a repeat customer,
it certainly helps with retention, customer retention, storing the tires for our clients, you know, really helps us stay connected with our clients and you know, we follow up throughout the year and let them know if maybe they need new tires for the upcoming season we can
get get them prices on new set or God because
when you’re storing the tires, you’re looking at how much stuff is left on it how
much tread and full little business
that’s great the condition of the Rams if they might need refinishing. if they have any curb damage from you know sliding up against the curb, we can get those refinished and make them look brand new again. Or if people only have tires and no rims, like yourself, we do you’re off from changing use the same range for both seasons. We can quote them on a new set of rims, so you can get us two sets of rims for your summers and your winters. And then it costs less time changed over every seas got it.
Okay. And what I initially liked about you is that I didn’t have to do that because the guy it’s my friend who I leased this x five from, and I was just cursing at him when he told me because I wanted the electric x five because I wanted the green plates so I could drive on the HOV link. And when he leaves system, he’s like Tom, you know, those are summers, you’re going to have to get winters and I’m like to you Chris, I gonna have to get like winter rims. Now he’s Yeah, you gotta get winter rims. But then when I saw your service, I’m like, Oh my gosh, this is going to save me thousands of dollars, because you’ll just pull up and I can use the same rims, which look better to me having the same rims and just put winters on them. But I see, yeah, you have all these different options. And then what about your like website development? Like it looks like you have a really nicely done website and stuff. Did you do all that stuff? You’re like, that’s an important thing. Did you do that stuff yourself? Teach Yourself that kind of stuff.
Initially, I did. I built the website myself. But I wanted to improve on SEO, Search Engine Optimization. So I hired company that specializes in doing that. And we kind of collaborated to make this one a reality.
Yeah, cool. Okay. And then other than on your website, do you do any social media stuff? Any Instagram stuff or any I feel like when you’re changing tires on McLaren’s and Ferrari’s man, you should be posting that stuff out. I don’t know if the owners might not want that though.
Yeah, we ask. Okay, so you did your permission. Yeah.
And you didn’t ask if you want to take any pictures of my car. I’m too low on the totem pole. A you didn’t want?
no, no, no, you didn’t ask. You didn’t ask any picture the x five when he’s changing the x five, x five times like I’ve seen these ex wives every day man is like boring stuff for me. If you’re not a McLaren, get out of here, especially me now because I live at Lakeshore and park loans. So you know, that’s the way I roll. Okay, what about? What about your plans? Like? How are you looking forward? Now? What’s the Do you have like a growth plan? Again, I don’t want you to reveal any of your secrets or anything. You’re young business, but like, What are you? What are you looking to do next? Is it to add another event? And you mentioned people map out what you see,
yeah, one step at a time. So yes, out another van, to the fleet. And then it’s looking for the people that are going to operate that van is step one. So we don’t want to have you know, all these trucks and no one to run the truck. And it’s a balance. So that’s Yeah, the next step is to find the people that are going to run the next trucks.
And we’re, you’re the truck I saw was pretty big. Are you keeping that in just your regular parking at home now? No, not enough space for
that. Okay. So there we park our trucks at the storage facility that we also store your tires at got it. So okay, it’s all one one location centralized? Actually Mississauga. So we have easy access to all the areas that we service. And, yeah, it’s nice to be able to park
trucks all at one location. Awesome.
