Not that I really have a opinion one way or the other, but I have no problem with a franchise. Franchise People are not looking to be self employed, they are looking to be business owners. I think sometimes the self employed almost take offense that somebody not as skilled as them dare try and own a business in their industry. I'll tell you, one of the most successfull painting companies in my area is owned and operated by a guy who had no idea how to paint when he startdd his company. I like hearing evryones input. IF I hear something I like from someone Ill use it, If dont Like what I hear I dont use It. There are lots of ways to succeed in doing this. Not all will agree on which way is the right way for them.

Welcom CP.

I hope it is the latter as I always like to learn what i can about franchises.

I know you guys think you smell blood but take it easy. I would hate to see him come back to his thread and have it be all murky with this or that and be turned off from contributing to PT.

So let's move the discussion here, and not in the intro thread. We can move some of these posts over and hopefully the OP will come back.

I am sure there are quite a few active CertaPro members here - I know of at least one other.

Thank you for the message. Seems you have quite a tough crowd here. I look forward to the banter.

Last year we completed approx. 60% Res and 40% Commercial. We had a positive year in the economy that was not swinging well. It was to say the least a tough year for us but we fought the good fight and live to fight another day!

Yeah it is a tough crowd at times, stick around and contribute and you will see that it is a great resource with some great members that really know their stuff.

Sounds like you did alright, and are ready for this year.

Was the last year your first year with CP?

Yes - like Work said - stick around. Good folks with good advice. Just have to sort through the bs. But it's worth it.
