New Decade. Same Painting Grind?

Even if you aren’t one of those “New Year’s Resolution People,” the beginning of a new decade must have you asking a few questions

#1 – How will I increase my income this year (or will it be the same or worse than this year?)

#2 – What will it take to make my business less stressful (instead of constant fire-fighting?)

#3 – When can I finally get home at a decent hour (and go on a vacation without anxiety?)

#4 – Why doesn’t my business look like what I envisioned (its been years of hard work!)

Trust me, you are not alone in asking these questions.

The truth is these are questions ALL painting contractors
ask themselves at some point – the dawn of a new decade simply presses the

Here’s another fact: Most contractors ASK these questions…
few really SEEK the answers.

In the end, this is a shame for one simple reason: There is NOTHING new under the sun in painting.

Every income, operations, time-management, marketing, sales
and scaling problem has been solved.

Not once, not twice, but thousands of times.

The issue is that most painting contractors work in
isolation. The few that seek advice from peers get bad advice… recycled again
and again.

If you really want to get ahead in the painting business,
look around at what the painters are doing in your market. Make an intense
study of it… THEN DO THE OPPOSITE!

INSTEAD… Surround yourself with owners who realize the
business-end of the business is where the money is made. Grant financially
successful owners a “hunting license” so they can look at your business and
candidly help you improve.

Of course, finding these owners is challenging. Rarely are
the grouped together. Rarer still are they all in once place where a structure is
provided to facilitate business growth.

Rare yes. Unheard of, no.

In fact, that’s the entire purpose of the “Hot Seat” sessions at the 2020 Painting Profits Summit.

They are specifically designed to allow you to present…

Your Biggest Breakthrough Strategy in 2019 and…

Your Biggest Challenge or Problem in 2020

Together, a group of 15-17 of your peers focus on YOUR business – giving you verbal and WRITTEN feedback on EXACTLY what to do in your specific situation.

You could wait a lifetime for that type of business-changing opportunity… or you could simply register for the 4th Annual Painting Profits Summit… BEFORE it is too late!

It is my sincere hope that you will NOT let this fantastic
occasion pass you by.

Happy New Decade!

“Our first campaign reached $60,041.98! That's a huge percentage of our annual sales! You don't pick the peach orchard just one time. Different peaches ripen every day. Thanks for encouraging us to keep after it!”

“15 requests for quotes and closed and/or completed $23,000 of work and I still have a few more to do. Conservatively this campaign will net $25,000 in found money in the first 45 days! Thanks Brandon!”

“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.”
