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...
Hey, it's Brandon Lewis here with Painters Weekly. Yesterday, I had a very interesting conversation at the beach about something you probably wouldn't expect, and that's hiring and recruitment. I...
Hey it's Brandon Lewis. And during the busy, hectic repaint season, like right now, it's super easy to get overwhelmed by things to do, and to try to do more and more of it yourself, and to work longer hours, or to let things fall through the cracks. I'm going to encourage you, as you move into the busy...
Hey, do you have painters that are currently exhibiting behaviors that you do not approve of? It could be showing up late, it could be going over budget, it could be the way they do their work. If you do, you're not alone. Most painting contractors struggle with this. I'm Brandon Lewis with Painters Weekly and Painters Academy, and...
Hey. It's Brandon Lewis here. As you can see behind me, there are lots of rapids here at the Conasauga River, because recently, it rained a lot and there's whitewater, right?

Do you struggle with hiring and recruitment? Is it a big issue? Do you feel like you can't find any painters? There aren't any painters. There's no painters left out...
Hey, it's Brandon Lewis with Painter's Weekly. I see a lot of things going around in our industry about generating leads online, and a lot of it is not very helpful. A lot of it is about renting to own your space online. It could be going with a lead service that gives leads to five or six other...
Hey it's Brandon Lewis here with Painters Weekly and I've got some pretty exciting news in my world. I'm having another girl. We did a gender reveal this weekend and it was super exciting to have everybody here and to find out that we're going to have yet another addition to the Lewis household that is of the female...
Time management is something most painters struggle with... you are not alone! This weekend, we celebrated Sylvia’s 6the birthday with a grand tea party where she invited all of her friends. They had a great time eating dainty sandwiches, sipping tea, receiving etiquette lessons, and trying on large, outlandish hats. When all the girls got together wearing their many hats, it...
