Default Painter looking to learn from Pros!

I have been a high school teacher and seasonal painter for 13 years.
I really want to go full-time this summer and "retire" from teaching. As a result, I feel I should be better informed and do all I can to improve my business regarding cutting-edge products, methods, and coatings. I know this is the site to use.
My business has been by word-of-mouth, but I wonder if I should advertise and expand my horizons. There are some painters in town who have bad reputations and I want to keep mine good, so any advice is appreciated.
I mostly do interior repaints and exterior repairs and repaints.

Hi A+! use the "search" link first man. There are a ton of useful threads that you'll enjoy on this website!.

You'll also find that the best, and quickest way to make friends here on Painttalk is to ask them what they would charge for something. Or ask them what the going rate is for a certain task. we love that. just kidding dont ask that.

I'm in Enid, but have customers in the OKC and Tulsa areas. Used to live in Dallas and painted there too. Taught in Garland ISD for 8 years.
