Justin talks about how he got into the industry, which was through his father's work at Zeki Motorcycles. He started as a beginner and learned to do things methodically and correctly. He initially worked at a prestige body shop doing Lexus and Jaguar when he was 14 and learned skills from the older generation. Justin's passion is cars, and he grew up with Holden, a brand that no longer exists in Australia.

Justin initially struggled to keep up with his peers but eventually surpassed them due to his meticulousness. He also mentions the challenges of being patient and learning skills that take a long time to acquire. The speaker describes the apprenticeship process in Australia, which involves four years of training and onsite learning rather than college education. The shift towards more onsite training is a recent trend in Australia that is gaining popularity in Europe and the United States.
