Default Hello from La.

Hello everyone. Joined this site 1 year ago this month and have been lurking around quietly, on and off, ever since. At the time I joined, I had been working in general construction with friends for a few years (mostly home remodeling, kitchens and baths, etc). I had just picked up a painting job , decided to take it on myself, and was very interested in making painting a legitimate business venture. So, i turned to this site for help with general painting practices and business advice. The job turned out well, thanks in part to the help of the professionals here. I'll admit that I slightly underestimated the time and material it would take, but I did put together a professional looking proposal and contract and managed to keep track of my production times (as per the advice given on the boards here). All in all I was pleased, but work came easier in the construction field and I lost focus on my own business. Here I am a year later, and I've picked up another big painting gig, taking it on myself, and trying to refocus my efforts on getting a painting business off the ground. Hoping this time around goes better, and that a year from now I'm not here posting the same message

Welcome. When I hear people say they are from LA I think Lower Alabama.
