Starting a powersport business

Chasing dreams and blazing trails with Joshua and Wild Desert Tours

Guided and motivated by the smile off-roading brought to the faces of not only himself but of each passenger he took along on his Maverick, Joshua set out to build a way to share his love and passion for the sport with others. His entrepreneurial journey was untraditional: he had graduated nursing school and started his career as a nurse working in the ER, while working to shape the business that is today known as Wild Desert Tours.

Joshua’s unique starting point was repurposing his initial dog grooming business trailer into a mode of transportation to rent out his single Maverick to interested riders. Damage to the machine and doubt from those around him about taking the untraditional route were just some of the barriers he faced, but thankfully he learned to adapt and persevere, overcoming his challenges and following his passion. His hard work went into shaping the ultimate adrenaline-filled, yet safe getaway in Helendale. Wild Desert Tours is the perfect spot for a date, family trip, birthday party or corporate event, that includes all of the small, important details such as having communication devices in helmets for talking with guides at all times.

Joshua’s career and business aspirations may have evolved, but his love for putting smiles on people's faces through work as a nurse or sharing his love of powersports has remained stagnant. He believes that even though those around you (yourself included) may question if taking the untraditional route to pursue a passion is the right call, to keep your eyes on the vision, celebrate the confirmations, and just keep going.
