I'm EricBarstow

I'm the founder of Painting Business Pro and I’ve been in the painting business for my entire working life.

For the first 6 years of my painting business career I recruited, trained, and mentored other college students to start and run their own painting company. I had the backing of a large national company that provided this internship.

I worked 50-60 hours a week and trained over 100 college students, who had no prior painting or business experience, to run a successful painting company.

After graduating with a degree in economics and business, I started my own painting business in late 2010. Our company has grown from a small $150,000 business in our first year, to over $3,000,000 in sales in 2016.

I am also the co-owner of Painter Choice, a national lead provider for painting contractors. Over 1500 homeowners every month use our service to find a painting contractor, and we play the matchmaker.

In 2013, I started Painting Business Pro to teach people how to start and build their own painting companies following the principles I had learned and taught.

Over the last few years, Painting Business Pro has become the largest online resource for starting and building a successful painting company. I love hearing success stories and sharing everything I have learned to help others follow in my footsteps.

If I had to sum up my life I would break it into 4 primary commitments...

Friends, Family, & Relationships

I think my relationships are about all that I have at the end of the day. No matter how much success you have… if you have nobody to share it with, what’s the point anyways.

Business & Entrepreneurship

I love to create businesses, create value, and make systems that work. I just love engineering a well made business. Entrepreneurship provides an incredible opportunity and I think everyone should take advantage of it!

Training, Coaching, & Giving Back

I’ve learned so much, and I love to share everything that I have learned. I coached over 75 people to start their own business, and have coached dozens more in personal coaching. I intend to make a big impact on the world!

Recreation, Travel, and Leisure

Believe it or not, there is such a thing as too much fun. When I go on vacation for a month or sometimes even two months without working, I get depressed. There is nothing as exciting as getting back to work after a long vacation! So I love to balance my life, so I’m always looking forward to something.
