Default New and wanted to introduce myself

I am new to the board and look forward to sharing ideas and experiences as well as learning from your collective wisdom/experience.

I got my start in St Louis, Missouri doing rehab houses in Jr High and High School with a friend and his father who was in the business. His father was hoping that hard physical labor would encourage us to go to college and work at a desk or something white collar of sorts, but in the process taught us, what I consider to be a great and valuable trade.

I moved out to Salt Lake City, Utah in the 80's to ski and go to college and found that I loved working for myself and that there was some money to be made in a correctly run painting business.

These days I just work with a partner and try to keep things simple and the family provided for. I think we can all help one another charter our way through these tougher economic times regardless of the size and vison of our respective buisness's.
