Default Helloo

Hey. My Name is Rubin Hoffmann. I moved to Canada almost 4 years ago. I got a little bit experience in painting as I painted a couple houses and I started to love it.
After finishing High School I started working for a Painting Company. I loved it and I enjoyed working there. The only problem was that I had to drive 50km to work and 50km back everyday and it just didn't make any sence staying there for $13.50/hr. And the gas prizes went up. So after 6 months I quit and started my own business. It went good for a few months but now it's kinda slow. Some people say it's because I am too young for my own business (I'm turning 21 in August) but I don't really care what they think. Life goes on and someday everything will be fine. (I hope)
So I found this page a while ago and registered but I was just reading thru all the posts and now I decided to tell you guys a bit about myself and yeah here I am... Hopeing for a good relationship with the PT-Community!

Sorry if anything is spelt wrong or if the grammar is messed up. As I said english is not my first language.

My wife started her dance studio while in college. Was a good project for a senior final thesis. 10 years later its still going strong. Live your business, become friends with stress, live long and prosper.

welcome to the group! Just get your self out there man show your community that even though your a young painter your jobs look like you have 40 years experince. Plus winter is always slow for any kind of construction. I'd try to line up jobs and tell customers you can't do it until the winter months. (read that from a fellow pt member wish I could remember his name and give him credit hopefuly he will come by this post) keep your head up!
