Default Greetings from Chicagoland!

Hey there everyone. Long time reader and just created my profile so wanted to stop in and say hi. I'm currently in the process of starting up my painting business in the Chicagoland area. I wanted to take those side jobs and make it "official" (I'm sure you know what I mean), so here goes nothin!

As I said I've lurked the site for quite awhile and gotten a lot of good info/insight and look forward to much, much more in the future.

Lastly, even though I have good experience with painting itself, I'm still pretty new to the business side of things, so I freely admit to my rookie status there. There will be things I'm unclear on so I hope you don't mind some questions! Look forward to discussions with you guys. Have a good one!

-Phantom

If you have been lurking for a while now, then you would know what not to ask. But who knows? Sometime a active member that has been for here a while, will still ask one of those. I'm amazed every time it occurs.
Welcome!

Welcome!
I'm thoroughly confused. If I'm not mistaken, we already have a lurker from Chicagoland. What's the deal with lurkers in Chicagoland?

Welcome! I also started out as a bit of a lurker. Where abouts in Chicago are you?

I'm in the south suburbs (Joliet area).
