    Brandon I don’t think people are saying there are no painters out there.
    In my case Ive noticed most of the good painters with any intelligence are contractors themselves.
    Most of the good painters who are not, are already working for a larger more established painting company.
    This has been my experience over the last few years. Ive lived on the west coast and the midwest and the east coast…It seems to be much worse on the east coast.

      Maybe you’re not saying there’s a shortage, but most are. If the good painters are the “owners”, and I use that term loosely, then the problem is still this: How do you recruit them to leave their less-than-stable self-employment situation and get them to come work for you. In essence, the labor problem is still solved by solid recruitment efforts and systems.

      Almost all of my crew leaders were at one point self-employed. It’s a great pond to fish in for painters.

“This year has been the biggest year of growth for us. We're double where we were last year. I realized the real money in this business is in the marketing of the services - not the doing of the services.”
