"Are you guys in a rush to get out of here?"
I can still remember this pivoting moment early in my painting career when my friend & business partner and I were asked this very question from our client.
That day, we both realized the important difference between being FAST and being EFFICIENT... and have completely changed our approach as a result.
In this weeks video, I share with you a few tips on how you can also tap into the POWER OF EFFICIENCY! :)
If you're ready be take your painting career to that next level and be able to call yourself an INTERIOR REPAINT EXPERT GRADUATE...
The difference between operating from a place of SERVICE or SERVANT can be very subtle. So much so, that only you could ever know which one is relevant to you.
Meaning, you can't judge whether someone is coming from a place of LOVE (Service) or FEAR (Servant) based on what can be observed from an outsiders perspective.
Here's a great example... accepting to do extra work at no charge.
This could easily be coming from a place of SERVICE if you choose to do so for your client because you felt like giving them that little extra out of your own free will. Or it could also be coming from a place of SERVANT if you felt like you had to do so by fear of what would happen if you didn't.
To learn how to operate mostly from a place of SERVICE, check out this week's video.
Imagine being in the middle of putting a proposal together for a large Interior Repaint project... and then the client asks if you could also add the exterior of the front door.
While for most, this would be a simple "yes, certainly!"
In this weeks video, I'll share with you why I now say NO to all exterior projects (even something as small as the exterior of a single door)... and how it got me that BIG Interior Project.
There are 2 things that come into play when we conclude whether or not we are attracted to an offer:
1- The PRICE
2- The STORY
But as you'll discover in this week's video, YOUR STORY is often not given a chance to be heard... or worst, it's replaced with a completely different one.
RECOMMENDED COURSE: SELLING
Whether you'r a DIY using tape to help with the cutting in... or you're a Professional Painter using tape to create a paint border in the middle of a wall...
You may have had to deal with a stubborn tape that was hard to remove... or worst, that was peeling away some of the paint.
Why is that?
And what can I do to avoid this?
The simple answer can be found in this week's video.
Usually, I like to resume the content of a video to a point where you can at least see if it applies to you or not or if it's worth your time to watch it.
Seeing how this video applies to ANYONE... and I mean, ABSOLUTELY ANYONE!
I will simply say this... YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF (AND THE REST OF US) TO LISTEN TO IT... AND TO TAKE SOME TIME AFTERWARDS TO TRULY REFLECT ON IT.
Is it possible for our eyes to see something completely different than what's really in front of us? ABSOLUTELY!
In this week's video, I'll show you exactly how this GREY color turned BLUE and how we were able to stop this incredible COLOR ILLUSION.

If you're going to be selling your house here are 2 Different Markets you need to be aware of:
1- TURN KEY
2- RENOVATOR / FLIPPERS
Deciding which one will be best to target is a discussion I'd recommend having with a local Realtor - someone who really knows the state of your market.
But one thing I often see people do when we are asked to come in to do some painting in preparation for selling... is try to go somewhere in the middle in an effort to save money and appeal to both markets.
But like most things in life, when we try to please everyone, we end up pleasing no one...
