Jaime Jimenez: Self-made entrepreneur at age 17


Leilani Patino, El Rodeo Staff Writer

He’s driven, focused, humble, hard-working, and independent. He works hard for what he wants. He’s only 17-years-old. He is senior Jaime Jimenez.

Along with attending The Ranch since his freshman year, he has created his own mobile detailing business and works as a freelance barber.  

He works out of his home garage that he built to mimic a real barbershop. His setup includes a ring light, cushioned chair, barber capes, multiple sets of razors, and mirrors for his clients. 

Jimenez is full of perseverance, “My motivation and my drive are my goals and where I want to be in the future. I want to experience and know how the real world is and get a head start at it to be successful” he said. 

Jimenez has been cutting hair for almost two years. After cutting hair for some time, he started his own mobile detailing business. He washes cars and cuts hair, both after school and on the weekends. 

Not a lot of students work, let alone their work for themselves. 

“Work makes me feel hardworking and independent,” he said. 

There’s a lot of students that don’t work or don’t have the desire to work harder towards their goals, but Jimenez considers himself to be a hustler.  

He also mentions “I consider myself to be self-made because I do everything on my own with the support of my parents.” 

One interesting thing about Jimenez is he also played baseball during his first two years of high school. He wore #30 and played behind the plate. 

He loves to hustle and get after it. 

As Jimenez continues to work, be sure to take a look at his Instagram business accounts and book an appointment with him @jimenez_mobile_detailing and @_younghustlerkrew_.
