Default Hello

Hi All,

I just registered here on the forum and look forward to many informative and interesting discussions. I am a little late to the world of the internet and computer so please be patient and gentle. I am in my 35th year as a painting contractor from the NY area(not the city). I am a 3rd generation master painter and have never done anything else in my life for income other than paint homes and businesses. My pet peeve is pricing and helping contractors realize that they are in this not just to make a day's pay. Things like health insurance, pensions, vacation time, etc have to be considered in order for a business to be viable for the long term. Hope to bring some useful input. Thanks for having me.
Cliff

Welcome Cliff, I look forward to hearing from you! From your great intro, sounds like you will fit right in.

A couple of things that might help you out:
There is a search feature (look up and right) where you can search for topics.
Or you can just visit each sub forum and do a lot of general reading! Look for the threads at the top called "stickies", some real good information.

There are also some tips in the FAQ (look up and left). If you have any questions or problems, post a thread here- Site Help..

Enjoy!

Many thanks for the warm reception. I don't know if I have anything new to bring that you guys haven't already hashed out, but I'll see what I can do. The industry is going through some big changes in coatings ,now the lead stuff , and even the way business is conducted in this "new" economy. Should be plenty to talk about. Thanks again.

Welcome to your part time job. It doesn't pay anything, but you'll most likely have some good laughs.

Have fun!
