Painting Business Systems

This short video talks about the importance of systems.

Main benefits of creating business systems:

  1. They can be constantly improved. If you don’t have a system to improve, it makes it much more difficult to improve your results.
  2. Training employees is very difficult without a system, and very easy with a system.
  3. Growing your business exponentially can’t happen without a system… it could, but it’d be chaotic.
  4. Largest companies in the world – all have detailed systems and protocols for every single thing that can happen.

    I am working for a subcontractor and I am in the process of starting my own company however I am shooting for the top spot not to be a middle man please help. Thanks

      I’m not exactly sure what you mean “I’m shooting for the top spot”.

      If you want to start a successful painting company, the way I have done, I would recommend 3 things:
      1. Watch all my YouTube videos
      2. Read all my articles
      3. Buy my course

      In the coming months I’m going to be adding more courses and more “high level”, “big business” information about how to go from a profitable painting company, to a very large painting company.

      The 3 things above will get you to the profitable painting business part (as long as you are willing to put in the work!)

      I don’t know where you can find a live coach. I don’t do that myself. And the coaches I do know aren’t cheap. I would recommend following my free videos & articles. If you are serious and can afford it, get my course. It’ll save you hundreds of hours, and get you way ahead of the game.
