Default Hello All..Female Painter and Decorator from UK

Hello Everyone!

My name is Kez and I have just started trading as a Painter and decorator in England after 20 years of doing it as my hobby. Got made redundant from my last job and decided to start working for myself.

Would love any advice or tips anyone could give on my first year of business...

Welcome to the group. Start with reading the "stickies" in the Business, Marketing, and Sales Sub- Forum section of PT. Good luck with your venture.

Hi Kez, I would advise getting the word out to as many people as possible. talking to people first hand and passing out cards.
