118 People Shatter the “Painter Stereotype” at Painting Profits Summit


Over the past few days, I’ve been impressed and humbled by the personal and business achievements of painting contractors. I’ve been personally challenged and inspired by them.

A small, dedicated group of men and women are redefining what it means to be a successful entrepreneur in the painting industry. They are shattering the typical, largely negative stereotypes and setting a break-neck pace toward achieving their dreams.

Cheering them on, a group of supportive industry leaders who truly care.

When I founded the Academy for Professional Painting Contractors five years ago, I never imagined we would touch so many people’s lives. I never knew how closely I could connect with this group of amazing people – personally and collectively.

There is no substitute for getting face-to-face with your peers and sharing in their hard-earned wisdom. The Painting Profits Summit has evolved into a unique, exciting and culturally significant event in our industry. Watching it grow has been a personal honor and a labor of love.

I certainly have not done it alone. Thanks to our fabulous staff, terrific sponsors and fantastic members!

It’s all very hard for me to put it in words, so I will simply say this: I’m profoundly thankful for your trust and it moves me to my core.

Until next year…

I remain your friend in repaint profits,
