Smile Starting up a new business!

Hello all!

I'll thank you for your time in advance (and also probably, as I ask my questions)!

At any rate, I have been painting since '96 however I've had a few years hiatus recently and I'm really looking to "brush" up on anything I am out of practice on. My goal is to get this business up and running and hold a higher standard of quality then I had ever done in the past!

So again, all opinions, suggestions will be very much appreciated.

Also, as I do know a thing or two myself (but that's it, just two things). I'll be happy to share when I see a thread I can help on!

Even with a three year hiatus, ten years is a lot under any painters belt. Welcome aboard!

How many years were you a painting contractor, and what type of painting did you do?
