Frustrated With Your Painting Business? Here's the Solution

We get a lot of emails from painters saying they are frustrated with:

  • The economy
  • Competition
  • Not having enough time
  • Lazy employees
  • The price of materials
  • Paying for expensive advertising
  • low or no call volume from their ads
  • low ball painters driving prices down...
...And in my mind I say to them "welcome to business ownership"

Owning a painting business (or any business for that matter) comes with frustrations and set backs, there is no way around it.

Heck, even working a job has it's own set of frustrations, as well as massive limitations. Where as being self employed, holds all potential!

Today I want to pass on the BEST advice anyone has ever given me about how to combat the frustration of being an entrepreneur, are you ready?

Here it is... "Fall In Love With The Process"

Those six little words had such a profound impact on my life, and I hope they will for you as well.

It's important to realize that each day is going to have it's challenges AND it's victories!

The best way I have found to "Fall in love with the process" is by asking good questions when challenges arise, like:

- What is the best solution to this problem?
- How can we resolve this problem so next time it isn't such an issue?
- Who can I call or email for advice about how to overcome this challenge?

And when victories happen... really be grateful and celebrate them, no matter how small they may seem.

Success doesn't happen over night, it happens over time, and the path you take to get there is going to be as frustrating or as fun as you decide it to be.

When we decided to create and publish Painting for Profits and make it available to the public I wanted to make sure that we offered support after the sale. In fact the "support" was (in my opinion) the most important benefit included in the system.

Having caring people around you that you can ask questions to when you are feeling frustrated, is priceless. Being able to ask questions of people who "have been there" and "done that" goes a long way in curing frustration.

That's what we offer to all of our clients when they invest in our programs.

...And if you ask me, that is why so many people have such wonderful success with Painting for Profits!
