Default hello from Michigan

Hello all,

I stumbled into the forum a few days back looking for advice on a better business structure/model and have been bouncing all over the boards enjoying myself.

I am a fourth generation painting contractor and the tried and true of my fathers generation isn't keeping pace with the changing perceptions of the buying public or the realities of the economy. I am playing catch up on better business practices and my hat is off to all who have been weathering the times with success.

Marty

Welcome Marty!
You are so right about the changes, the other day I read a comment from an older contractor about Facebook.
"I can't imagine 10 years ago asking someone to "like" me" !
Lot's of good stuff here, jump right in and and feel free to add your thoughts!

Wait a minute! How many Michigan painters can this forum hold? In other words, how much is too much of a good thing?
