In 2010 it was time for me to start my own painting business from scratch. I had just graduated from college after working with another painting company for the last 6 years where I trained other students on all of the aspects of running a painting business. It was a no brainer for me – I KNEW I could run a successful painting company, but I didn't want to.
I wanted something sexier like an awesome online company, or some new amazing idea nobody thought of. I tried starting a t shirt company that I thought was going to take off.. it didn't.
I started a consulting business which I thought I would love... I didn't love it.
I did a multi-level marketing business that I thought would make me rich without working... I hated it.
While I was starting all of these other businesses, I had a painting company on the side. For the first 2 years, I really didn't bother trying to grow my painting company – I didn't want to! I wanted something else!
And after 2 years and 4 other businesses, I realized something...
It could take 5 years... or 10 years... or 20 years... before I create that monster business I was after. And for the last 2 years I've been avoiding the one business that has been profitable, successful, and growing with ease.... My painting business! So I thought, maybe it's time I start to invest my energy into my painting business.

I think what I like more than anything though... I was able to grow my company to a $1,000,000 painting business in 4 years, without ever working more than 20 hours per week.
It's why I've helped several friends start painting companies who are all crossing the $1,000,000 mark... 3 of my best friends own $1,000,000 painting companies in Colorado, who also started their business within the last 5 years.
It's why I've helped hundreds of people start painting companies.
I love entrepreneurship, I love entrepreneurs, I love being self employed, and I think you'll love it too.
I've had the opportunity to travel all over the world, play tons of golf, spend time with friends, go to weddings, take time off, sleep in when I feel like it, and really create the life I want to have because of the painting business.
Before you start any business, think about WHY you want to be in business and share it with me in the comments! I’d love to hear why being self employed, and working for yourself is important to you – what would that make possible in your life?
