Default Hello From The Midwest

Hey everyone just coming in to seek some advice from some seasoned vets. I have been in the painting business since 98. I run a small/medium size company normally with 2 to 4 three man crews but have downsized to small projects and handyman services for the past few years. I am tired of scraping by and want to gear things back up in 2014 but I am starting almost completely from scratch. I made alot of mistakes in the past and I don't want to repeat them and that is why I am here. Hopefully I can get some solid council.

Welcome!

What kind of business mistakes did you make in the past? It seems to me, that if you were able to run up to a twelve man work force, that you were doing something right. You are probably qualified to offer solid council to many members here.

Good luck with restarting your business!
