"One of the best investments I've ever made."
I strongly encourage purchasing Eric's Painting Business Pro course. I'd say I skipped at least a few years of mistakes through spending a small amount of money on the course. This is one of the best investments I've ever made. Definitely consider it.

"What I have learned has far exceeded my expectations"
I have been in the painting business for several years. I purchased the Painting Business Pro Course in order to pick-up a pointer or two. Boy! What I have learned has far exceeded my expectations!

-Luigi Mancini

Who I Am Why You Should Listen to Me
For the first 6 years of my career in the painting industry, I trained college students to run their own painting business thru a college internship program, generating millions in revenue while working my way thru school where I got a degree in business and economics. 

After graduating, I started Foothills Painting in 2010. Since then, my team and I have opened National Painting Group, a company that maintains an ownership stake in several painting companies generating well over $5,000,000 in annual revenue with healthy profit margins and massive year over year growth.

In 2012, I started Painting Business Pro to teach people how to start a painting business. Since then, Painting Business Pro has become the industry leader for empowering painting business owners to scale their companies. 

In 2013, I partnered up with Chandler Zieg to build Painter Choice, a marketing company for painting contractors. Over the last few years, Painter Choice has generated well over $20,000,000 in sales for our painting contractors thru our marketing services. 

I love entrepreneurship and helping others create the life of their dreams and the freedom that results from building a successful business.
What Are the Painting Business Pro Training Programs?
These programs include in-depth training videos that you can't find anywhere else (not even on YouTube). The training videos are structured to include ALL those little details. We also have organized the entire business and training process from start to finish. You don't need to piece anything together. It's all there. 
Over the last 10 years, we have systemized everything in our business. That means it's documented. These documents we use to run our business have taken hundreds of hours and years to become what they are today. You get instant access to over 100+ done for you documents that include scripts, templates, forms, business plans, and more.
It's not easy being in business by yourself, and now you don't have to be. Join our private members-only community with over 550+ other Painting Business Pro members. Get support, ask questions, and encourage others as we build together. I answer questions here and you don't have to worry about getting bad advice in this community
Keep It Simple: 3 Steps to Building Your Company
Business Strategy & Planning
Want to build a booming painting business? You're going to need a business strategy and a business plan.
You don't need to reinvent the wheel. We have built dozens of painting companies ourselves and helped thousands of contractors create their own strategy and business plan. You will understand clearly defined steps to take, how to track your progress, and know how to get back on track if you fall behind

1. Follow the proven marketing strategies to get your first estimates set up.
2. Follow the professional sales process to sell your first job. 
3. Follow the step by step production process to produce your first job. 
4. Make your first profit!
Build & Master the Foundation
In order to really grow a business, you need to have a reliable and predictable system that generates reliable and predictable results. 

Hit these weekly numbers with our reliable and predictable systems:
Marketing: 10 estimates per week
Sales: $10,000 in sales per week 
Production: Happy customers and high profit margins.
Profit: Earn $3,000/week
Build Your Team
Once you've hit the numbers above, you have a good foundation, and you'll be working full time. To take the next step, you're going to need a team. 

Team Building is the hardest skill you'll need to learn. But it's also the most valuable. Effective team building is the difference between a $300,000 company and a $3,000,000 company.

It's not secret that estimating is important. You need to be able to come up with the right prices for your jobs. If you are too high, you won't win the job. If you are too low, you won't make money. If you are out there "guessing", you are going to run into trouble. Learn how to estimate your jobs right every time with training videos and sample estimates.

Mastering sales is the money maker in this business. Being great at sales is the difference between a thriving company that generates a ton of profit and company that struggles to get by. There is no skill more important to master than this one. It's also the most profitable skill to master. Learn the sales system we have perfected over the last 10 years.

One of the best ways to grow your business is referrals and word of mouth. But you don't get referrals unless you are delivering a great experience to your clients. You are going to need to have great crews, painters, and subcontractors working with you to deliver that. And you'll need a great production system to follow. This is also where you make profit.

Few businesses will ever cross the $1,000,000 mark without building a team. This is the hardest skill to learn, but the most important skill to learn. Once you know how to build a team, there is no limit to how big you can build your company. There are a lot of mistakes to make when you are hiring, training, and managing people. These mistakes can cost you a lot of money. That's what makes this training so invaluable to a business owner. It can shave years off of the learning curve and save you from many painful lessons.

Why I Don't Charge $3382 for This Program
I should be charging a lot more than I do for this program and everything that has been put into it. Franchises charge tens of thousands of dollars for proven business systems. 

But - I know this is a lot of money to most people. I'm passionate about helping people become successful entrepreneurs. 

In order to do that, we've made these training programs affordable.

So don't worry - you won't have to pay $3382 (or anything close to that) for access to all of this training and systems.
From the Mouths of Our Students
At first I was concerned about spending money for the online course, but let me assure you, there is really no cost. It is an investment. It's an investment that if you apply any of what Eric teaches you, it will pay for itself within the first job. Don't hesitate.
-Dave Sweeney
Painting Business Pro is by far the best program for your money hands down! I can not say enough good things about Eric.
-John Root
Not being on this course would have cost me a lot more than what I paid for it!

"This course is amazing and if you apply what he teaches you will be successful."
I come from an automotive background. I grew up around that business from day one and I was doing very well but it wasn't fulfilling. I knew I needed something else. I found Eric's painting course online and decided to jump in. I can say without a doubt this course is amazing and if you apply what he teaches you will be successful. It's all laid out and Eric gives you amazing support to back you up.

Before getting PBP I had no basis for how to even start a business and I needed reliable, consistent systems to use. My business is growing. I am making a good living. And I feel completely empowered! Thanks to the course, my estimates are consistent and quality. It really feels like I blow my competition away with the estimating process!

Your WHY could be things you are running from... What do you NEVER WANT AGAIN in your life? 

Shitty bosses and co-workers.
Scraping by one paycheck at a time.
No opportunities for advancement.
Can't provide the life you want for your family, or your kids.
Boring corporate job where you don't make a difference.

Why do YOU (the person reading this) want to start a business? What are YOU sick of?

What do you want more of in your life?

What would your own business provide for you?
Controlling your schedule, taking time off when you want, and spending time with friends & family.
Travel and experience all life has to offer. 
Provide a great life for your family and kids. 
Make more money, save money, invest money, and build wealth.
Be proud of what you've built and accomplished.
Choose who you work with, and enjoy going to work.

The list goes on and on... Being a business owner has so many benefits.

Fear of Failure.

It's really that simple. If success was guaranteed, everyone would do it.

So how do we guarantee success?
