Contracting can be a tough way to make a living.
And it may be getting tougher.
Small businesses have a particularly hard time now borrowing money.
There is competition from companies who have very low cost labor.
And customers are more difficult to deal with because they have money pressures as well.

In your opinion - what are the top five things that make running a paint contracting business a challenge?
