I am a new business owner in Alberta Canada. I have recently finished school and have had to come back to the only way I know how to make real money. I have had experience running a painting business in the past by running a student painting franchise. It went really well for me and I believe the key to my success was not hiring students to paint.
I run my business by hiring experienced guys, and that has worked out great for me to date. With my new business I plan to be more involved in the prep & application side of the process, but I will still be running several crews over the summer.
My painting business is focused on the repaint portion of the market as I have no knowledge of what to charge for new construction.
I am always interested in learning more about the industry and looking to break into new aspects of it so If I run into a new situation and can`t google a straight answer, I will post for advice here.
