Default Hello from NJ

Hello PT. I've been here for a while and feel like I never properly introduced myself to everyone. My name is Mike and me and my Father

own TJ's Painting Company LLC in Mount Laurel NJ. Just to give you a little backround about us: my father Tom retired from a sales management

position about 15 years ago and decided to start his own handyman business to keep himself busy and do something he truly loved doing.

He knew with his experience in sales and pretty much being the go to guy on his own house that he could provide a great service. Ever since I graduated highschool, I was always in the trades. Went to college briefly

but was'nt interested. I've worked for alot of people whether they were one man shows or companies and I took something from each. One thing I always knew: I was the hardest worker. Love workin, gettin dirty, learning knew things... but got sick and tired of putting forth the effort for

someone else who didn't appreciate me! My life changed about 8 years ago when I was working for a GC building a night club in Philadelphia, PA. We were on the job for about 6 months and upon completion he promised more work. The work fell through and I was assed out! Luckily for me at

the time my Father had some work lined up so I jumped on board. Within 6 months we slowed down and I decided to put an ad in the paper for painting. The rest is history! I not only get to work with my Father on a daily basis but I found something that I love to do! Our business couldn't

be better right now and I attribute that to a few KEY things:1. Love What You Do. 2 Love What You Do...and 3. Love What You Do, the rest will fall into place with determination, will, drive, and passion! Sorry for the rant guys. and gals just felt like it was due... AAAAAHHHHH I feel better now LOL..
