Default Been hanging here a while

I'm from South Dakota. The guy who got me going in this business died in the middle of a job within a year. I still had a lot too learn, but had lined up some business that had too get done.

I will admit that he taught me enough to be dangerous, but with help of groups like this and help from local painters I learned a lot. Also spent a year working with a master painter.

I think the reason the local boys at the time were willing to help me is because I did not go into this business to cut throat price wise. I have also included them on some larger projects were they made some dam good money.

I'm not obligated to help you, but may be willing.
Or if you like you can help me, I desperately need it.

It sounds as if you've had quite an interesting/turbulent introduction to the industry, mate.

It's clear though that you know what you want and you're doing everything in your power to make sure it comes to fruition.

Tenacity like that is invaluable!

Best of luck to you, mate!
