I like painting the houses at the lake and river but it gets bitter sweet when I see the fisherman rolling by. I have one customer that just put in a pond and a nice picnic area around it. It has become inhabited by about 50+ Canada Geese, he told me to come kill everyone of them because he is tired of paying me to come PW his concrete.

Wow!.. just checked them out.. what an impressive company & website. You know you've arrived when you have your own line of paint! Ive seen their ads in APC but I never imagined they we're this successful. Got to love the freedom of capitalism! Good for them. The owner had a dream, he & his guys busted their asses for years.. delivered a quality job and in the meantime also made a great brand name for themselves. More proof that with hard work, a solid business plan along with the drive & passion to make it.. we can all be as successful we dare to imagine!

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
