Smile New-bee !

Hey guys and gals !

My name is Paul,

I found this forum when i was starting my business just 9 months ago in April when i googled help with starting a painting business.

And i must say you guys are very informative and willing to share.

I have been painting for 30 years now, And always learning.

The last company i worked for lasted 15 years and 10 of that was as a foreman.

The pay wasn't bad but i saw the writing on the wall that the owner was turning 70 years old and his kids had no interest in the company, So i started thinking of my age ( 54 ) and how i have been thinking of going out on my own for the past 5 or more years. I don't want to climb 40 ft. ladders at 60 years old.

So here i am 9 months later and i am making it through the winter.

Looking foreword to sharing my experiences and reading yours !
