When did you get the course?

July 2014

What were you doing before you got Painting Business Pro?

I was doing landscaping for $10/hour for the last 6 months. I was lost and didn’t know what to do with my life. I hated landscaping and wanted to do something else with my life.

Did you start a painting business? Or did you already have a painting business?

I started a painting business because I saw a lot of opportunity in it. It kind of relates to what I used to do which was stucco. It’s also something I can do – there are not a lot of opportunities at my age and this looked like a good opportunity. Most people won’t take you seriously unless you sound credible.

How did you find Painting Business Pro?

I was searching for how to start a landscaping business and your video popped up about painting.

Why did you get the course?

After watching all of the videos a couple times, I knew I wanted to start a painting business. I was kind of low on my budget, but I’m the kind of guy who wanted to gamble it all and get some direction. I just wanted to do more with myself.

Any concerns you had about the course before getting it?

I think the course gives tons of detail and I was really motivated me to buy it.

What was your first impression when you got the course?

I thought “man I’m gonna make a lot of money”…. Once I saw all the sheets included I was like “wow this guy gave me a contract.. he gave me the whole thing… he even gave me a client manual and most contractors don’t even have that”… I’m great at math but horrible at english and it would have been really hard for me to make all of these forms and files. That was like a bonus and the rest of the course was great.

What have you accomplished since getting the course?

I started my business in October and booked $35,000 in the first week. Quit my landscaping job, which my wife was not happy about. When I was in landscaping and I quit landscaping my wife was mad and said “how do you think that this little course is going to get you money? You’re 22 years old and nobody is gonna trust you with that much money”. Nobody believed this would work. Everyone thought it was really stupid.

What is now possible or available for you?

I want to help people out and serve people with what they need. Our goal is to make $150,000 this year.

Would you recommend PBP and why?

If I could recommend it, I would say it depends on what type of personality you have. You have to believe in it… It depends on what kind of commitment you put into it. If you aren’t going to put anything into it, it’s not gonna work out for you. I think that’s like any type of business. If you’re really serious about it, I would highly recommend you get that course. It’ll help you out, it’s a low budget course, you can make it how you want, and you get to build something on your own.
