Default A blind sqiurrel finds a nut every once in a while! ;)

Hey all you masters of trade! Im new to this site... sort of... I've been reading your posts for quite some time and gained a lot of knowledge...a lot! And I can't thank you enough. I run a small Residential painting company called Creative Paint Solutions. I have no licenses or insurance at the time but I am working toward that goal. I have been in the construction field for 10 yrs.' now and im a jack of all trades. I have no money in my pocket at the moment! LOL But hopefully that will change! Uncle Sam can kiss my ass! Iim out to give a quality paint job at an affordable price. It seems to me everyone (from my neck of the woods) is out to cut each others throat. Charging dirt cheap work just to stay busy or to make bills. Its a tough economy! But I got a plan......

Jack of all trades is probably a bad business philosophy......

But......

Great another one with no insurance, not a smart move if some thing happens it's out of your pocket, for a few hundred bucks you can save lots of crap from costing you tons of money. Real smart telling uncle Sam to kiss your a$$, another reason US legit companies are paying more in the long run.
Sorry you sound like a back woods hack.

You have to get licensed and insured...it's not optional if you want to consider yourself a pro. I understand the "jack of all trades" statement. In the past I have learned to be handy in many trades, but there is no way to master all of them, is there? I sometimes do handy-man work for previous customers. They saw me taking down light fixtures, for example, and call and ask if I can hang a ceiling fan, fix a running toilet, put a new door closer on...things of that nature. When I have the time, I will do that for them. However, I do not advertise myself as a handyman, only a painter. And even though I'm relatively new at this compared to most here, I have to agree with the more established/bigger companies. Do your work in a legal manner, and get out of that "work for dirt cheap" mentality. I have found that I usually get the jobs that I charge "more" for. Don't shortchange yourself...if you do quality work (prep, using quality products, and refrain from the "one-coat" practices of the hacks) you should charge accordingly. Good luck.

And BS = blind squirrel... right?

I'm almost getting a feeling of déjà vu all over again but this is almost too obvious - unless that's what we're supposed to think.
