How Matt Increased Closing Rates and Prices at the Same Time!
Hello, APPC members. My name's Matt and I am the proud owner of Matthew Rathgeb Painting in Philadelphia, PA, home of the Superbowl champion, Eagles. Still, we're still celebrating even though we stink this year. Anyway, I just wanted to talk about module two, about the sales presentation. I'm gonna try to be brief and stick to the point...
Unless you have been under a rock somewhere, it's virtually impossible to ignore the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation and appointment process. And regardless of where you fall in the political spectrum, I'd like for you to keep an open mind and consider two things that this entire situation, and as it unfolded in front of the nation, what it can...
Hey. I'm Brandon Lewis from Painter's Weekly, and I'd like to reveal to you the biggest mistake that multi-million-dollar painting businesses make. I've done 822 in-depth analysis of painting businesses. Many of them are small, but tons of them, two million, three million, four million, I'll have clients on retainer that are in the 20 and 15-million-dollar categories. There's...
Hey. It's Brandon Lewis coming to you from my home office because this week we welcomed Ruby Lewis into our family, our brand new baby girl. My beautiful wife who is strong and confident and made to be the most awesome mother on the face of the earth brought her into the world the same way she did Sylvia,...
Hey, it's Brandon Lewis here and I cannot tell you how many guys I'm talking to through email and on the phone who are processing tons of work during the hectic summer repaint season, which is where we really rake in our net income harvest, yet they are not generating the profits that they want to be, meaning it...
Hey, it's Brandon Lewis with Painter's Weekly. Are you experiencing the summer slump? You know, that thing that happens when all the kiddos go back to school, that for some reason causes everyone to put all their decisions on hold and the phone stops ringing for estimates and people quit booking. Or perhaps you're going out to see people,...
I’m embarrassed! I went 20 years without doing this... This weekend, I did something I should have done almost two decades ago: I reconnected with my good friends Cory and Mitch who I was very close with 7th-9th grade. Separated by elements like starting a family, joining the military, and heading off to college, we just lost touch. Frankly, I should...
How is it some start ups do better after four months than most painters do after four years? Frankly, it’s all about what you know and what you do – and it has nothing to do with the technical skills of painting. Trent shares his story in this recent video that I was surprised and excited to get last...
Hey, it's Brandon Lewis coming to you high up on a ridge, and it is an 80% chance of rain today. I've got about eight more miles to go, but I'm committed to making this hike happen regardless of the circumstances, regardless of external stimuli, only what I can control. Someone once told me that the true hallmark of...
Hey it's Brandon Lewis here, and if you look behind me you can see the ruins of a once fantastically appointed mansion that is out on Cumberland Island that was taken by fire. They call it the Dungeoness Ruins. And I will tell you this, as I talk to owners of painting businesses I discovered that a lot of...
