Ready to grow your business while working less?
This is an exclusive program, and spots are limited.
You started a painting business to achieve freedom, but ended up working even more hours than ever before?
You do great work, you work hard, you are ambitious. But, somehow you’re still trapped working all the time as an employee, rather than a business owner.
You want to start working less, be able to take time off without things going wrong.
You want to build your business to a point where it supports you, so you can control your schedule and live life on your own terms.
You see the huge opportunity in the painting business, sitting right in front of you.
You’re willing to do what it takes to achieve success.
Do these problems sound familiar?
You can’t generate enough good leads, and you’re sick of paying for overpriced, under-qualified leads from Angi and HomeAdvisor.
You’re struggling to sell enough high-priced, high-margin jobs, because you’re constantly getting undercut by low bidders, and the leads you get want cheaper prices.
You can’t find good, reliable painters to work for you, so you often waste hours babysitting the painters you do get. Or, even worse, you end up picking up a brush and doing the work yourself.
You feel like you’re working hard, but going nowhere. It seems like all your hard work and energy is in vain because you can’t get traction. As a result, you’re not getting the growth you deserve.
You feel like you can achieve great success. But, for some reason it keeps slipping out of your reach, and you just can’t figure it out.
The truth is that you can build a Large, Profitable Business without working 60 hours a week.
Remember, you started a business to work LESS.
But then somewhere along the line you started making compromises with yourself.
“Hard work is required if you want to make good money. I'll just work hard now so that I can really enjoy life later.”
"I can live with a moderate salary for now - at least I own my own business"
Or you've accepted the idea that sacrifices will have to be made in the early stages - it will get better later on.
Your life won’t get better unless you start doing something different.
Every hour you spend doing lower level work is one less hour you can spend doing high-level “CEO” work on your business.
There’s a good chance you’ll burn out on your business. And, if you don’t burn out, you’ll look back years from now and regret all the time you spent working.
It’s time to stop compromising. It’s time to start building the business you deserve.
We’ll help you fix all these problems for good by helping you sell high-margin jobs, free up your time, and build a great team to support you.
You’re closer than you realize to building the life that you dream about.

with the flagship program at Painting Business Pro
Why do I do this?
I started Painting Business Pro in 2013 to help people start a painting business. I simply wanted to learn how to do business online. I had no expectations.
Over the years it has grown significantly - beyond what I ever could have expected.
And in 2021 I almost shut it down to focus exclusively on National Painting Group where we are building a portfolio of multi-million dollar painting companies.
But then I started looking through some of the stories from our members. The impact Painting Business Pro has made on people is undeniable, life changing, and I couldn’t bring myself to stop doing this work.
Instead, we decided to double down on the work we’re doing at Painting Business Pro and take it to the next level... I really love what I do, I’ve spent 17 years coaching people, I’m damn good at it, it makes an enormous impact on people, and that’s why I do what I do. We’re doing this to make an enormous impact on the lives of people in this industry from business owners to team members to customers to painters and subcontractors.
