Default New guy from NE Indiana.....

Im Brandon and Ive lived in Kendallville, IN for about 11 years now. I just turned 36 yrs old and have pretty much always done factory work since graduating high school with something on the side. Including pizza delivery guy in the early years to real estate sales agent in the middle years to owning and managing my own rental properties the past several years. Im at 28 units and between those and my factory job im to the point where I have no time for family or a life in general. That has made me decide to refi some of the rentals to increase cashflow and quit my job in the spring. Ive never been one to just lay around so Id like to start a painting business to keep me busy. I don't want to limit myself to just painting but that would be the focus. Im going to start advertising in the next couple of weeks and do some jobs as time permits until I quit in 4-6 months.

Looking forward to spending some time on the forums here!

You are very ambitious. You might want to check all licensing requirements for your area as well.There is much more to the trades than just getting a DBA or LLC.

Injection molding here too! Just an operator....more money to be made "minding my own business" rather than thinking for them! (Rich Dad Poor Dad guy here)

Thanks for all the welcomes!

Ive completed my DBA form and will file it this week and ive been quoted insurance. Planning on setting up my bank account and start insurance in the next couple weeks. Already have a couple jobs lined up for family members and ill start advertising as soon as my cousin has my logo all done!

Looking forward to getting busier and staying busy!
