Default Hello from Big Sky Country

Hi all,
I just wanted to introduce myself to everyone before I post a few things on my mind. First off I'm a son of a painter. My dad made a great living painting homes in the Baltimore area. His business was established in 1979 and is still going. Unfortunately when the bottom dropped out of the economy in 2006, he had to let go several of his long term employees. That said, I have spent quite a few years working for him painting high end custom homes. Currently, I'm working at a Hardware Store in Montana. I don't make much money but I am learning the back end of the paint business as we are a Pratt and Lambert Dealer.

I have found some valuable information from the forum so far. I'm looking forward to learning more about how the contracting business has evolved from the days prior to 2006 and learn some of the skills it takes to open a successful business in today's marketplace.

Cheers,

MTPainter
