Hi everyone,
Finally made the plunge into doing what I love to do, for a living. After 30 years in sales and marketing-white collar stuff, it was time for a change. I have been painting and doing DIY home improvement projects for years for myself and family/friends etc. Everyone said "You should do this for a living!" So this past summer "Inside And Out Home Improvements was born. Started strong out of the gate for 5 months-not a lot of time for marketing-but now I have to build for the future. My real estate broker brother-in-law reminded me that job #1 is generating leads-so that's what I am doing to start the year. As time goes on I will contribute my marketing ideas to the forum. But for now I will be a sponge to learn all I can-to be the best at what I do because that's the only way to differentiate oneself in the market and command top value.
