I have been involved in the instruction of Paintless Dent Repair for over 15 years. I have had a variety of experiences over that time and am often asked by some of my students, “why do you love teaching Paintless Dent Repair, or why do you continue to teach Paintless Dent Repair after all these years.”?
I really love what I do and approach it with a great sense of responsibility and passion; after all, students that select The Ding King to attend Paintless Dent Repair courses with me as their PDR instructor are putting a great amount of trust in my ability to teach them the paintless dent removal trade. The PDR business has changed my life and I hope to teach your dent removal so you can improve your way of life as well!
The most rewarding thing to me is the people I get to meet week in and week out. I have worked with people from every possible background and experience. Some have been retired and are looking for a new challenge and others are just beginning their careers as a PDR professional.
I have had the opportunity to share in countless peoples lives and get to continue those relationships throughout the years. I have met so many people and have been so enriched by knowing them and sharing in their journey. I know that it sounds sappy, but it really is one of the things that I enjoy most about what I do.
I also get to continue to learn PDR! Like I said before, I have worked with countless people over the years and have learned so much from them. Sometimes it’s during the learning process, their experiences in another field that can translate to learning PDR, this opens ideas that I would have never thought of on my own. It can also be when they return home and begin using their PDR skills; their feedback allows me to continue to refine teaching methods to better serve those that I teach.
I love to see people succeed! Most that I work with are looking at bettering their future and are taking the steps necessary to do that. I get such satisfaction from seeing people succeed and knowing that I was a resource for them to reach their goals. Each week I get to work with people that are motivated to change themselves; they are great people to spend time with and are very inspiring. Some have already succeeded in business and are looking to expand by adding on PDR services to capture door ding and hail business, while others are just beginning the journey. To see Ding King graduate progression from PDR student to PDR business owner a few months down the road is very rewarding.
Another thing I love about teaching PDR is being creative. Learning PDR is like learning to play a musical instrument. There is a touch and a “feel” that you have to develop to be successful in PDR. Each and every student is so different. No one learns PDR the exact same way. Some learn PDR by doing, others by seeing, and still others by analyzing. Over the years, it has been a rewarding challenge to teach all types of different people and finding the thing that works the best for them. Even after fifteen years of instructing PDR, I still develop and refine my instruction to include more effective ways to communicate.
These are just a few of the things I love about what I do; PDR is a challenging field, as is teaching it. But I love to come to work everyday knowing I am going to get to interact with people and help them to achieve their goals of making money in paintless dent repair.
