Yes, that is my family – well, most of them.  From time to time I get asked, “Are they all yours.”  

I usually say, “Well most of them, I left the ugly ones at home.”

Some people have told me I am quiet and don’t talk much.  But, when it comes to paint, I just can’t contain myself – so I started this blog to keep from talking everyone’s ears off!  I try to write about the questions I get the most so you can find answers while your in your pajamas relaxing at home.  Feel free to call me anytime, I am always willing to tell you about anything I know about paint.  In the meantime, you might be able to find in here.  If you have ideas for me to write about, feel free to email them to office@indianapainting.com.

Is Your Contractor Overexposed?

Warren Buffet once said that you only find out who has been swimming naked when the tide goes out. Over my short 46 years of life, I’ve seen the tide go out more than I can count on both hands. Some have been recessions and some have been more personal. The current crisis would be one example and we have all looked around and found a few “exposed” folks around us. It has been a very sad reality of our current time. Not all of them were the chronically broke type either. So how do you prepare...

Searching for Greatness

Searching for Greatness

Early on in our company’s life, I was keenly aware of my inability to build a company. This is probably normal. Most men feel it when they marry or have their first child – at least I did. How was I to build a company that could survive all the hard times that would inevitably come? It was an inescapable question. How do you build a truly great company? Better yet, what does it mean to be a “great” company? I mean, if you listen to Trump, everyone is great, but even Dash from the Incredibles...

The Low Bid

The Low Bid

In the world of commercial construction, competition is king. How many projects have you lost to a lower bidder? How many of those lost bids did you know that your bid offered more value, but the price was higher. This is a common story and a common problem. Too often, the problem isn’t our price, but in our presentation and salesmanship. If the customer only sees two bids on paper with very little to distinguish the two, how would he know the value you offer over your competitor? We are savvy...
