The price TRIPLED because of the Colors...

Years ago, I remember being hired to repaint the offices at this local radio station.

The original price came at around $4000 and we were hired to do the work...  HOWEVER

Once the Interior Decorator finished the Color Consultation, the end result was that they had choosen to go with 22 DIFFERENT COLORS... and most of those colors were yellows, oranges and bright reds.

Let's just say that this changed EVERYTHING!

So what's the lesson?

If you're a PAINTER... you need to make sure your quote specifies the number of coats... and the number of colors that are allowed for the price given.

Here's why I SHOWED UP LATE on purpose...

2 MINUTES LATE:  “Are you almost here?”

6 MINUTES LATE:  “Everyone is here! Where are you?”

This was a training exercise that our team never forgot…

One of the things that I’m known for is my punctuality. It’s not uncommon for clients to tell me “My gosh, when you say 1:30pm you really mean 1:30pm!”

TIME is a commodity I put a high value on both for others and myself.

So when I told my team “today’s meeting is particularly important so please make sure to be here by 3pm and don’t be late”NO ONE was late…  except for me!

You see, back in the summer of 2009 we had started to meet every Monday afternoons at 3:30pm for some coaching, bonding & to basically give everyone a chance to voice their concern or offer solutions to existing problems so...

  • Which caulking should I use along counter tops?
  • How long should I wait before painting over caulking?
  • Why is there a split in the middle sometimes? 

I invite you to watch this video to get the answers to those questions.
