Hey, it’s Brandon Lewis, here at Las Vegas again. Let me ask you a question: are you playing Texas Hold ‘Em with your painting business? Let me explain: Many owners that I get on the phone with act as if they have to play the cards that they’re dealt in their painting business. If their closing rates are low, they stick with...
Hey, it’s Brandon Lewis. I don’t know if you can see behind me, but there’s a big huge sign that says ATM. Question: Are you treating your past clients like a human ATM machine with your marketing, and here’s what I mean: Are you constantly and continually talking to them about discounts, giving you referrals, the product of the day…all the...
Hey, it's Brandon Lewis here, and I'm at Las Vegas, and behind me you can see a ton of slot machines, people very diligently throwing their money away here and having a little fun in the process. Let me ask you to imagine something. Imagine that inside of this casino where there are thousands, I would say, of slot...
Hey. it's Brandon Lewis of the APPC here. I've been on the phone with lots of APPC members. Winter is our busiest time of year, and we always bring a lot of people into our family after and during the Painting Profits Summit. There was a unifying theme, as I was on the phone yesterday with five new members...
There are a lot of painful truths about being in the painting business, but this one may be the most painful of all: When the vast majority of painting contractors retire or leave the profession, they liquidate a few pieces of run-down equipment for pennies-on-the-dollar and then close the doors forever. No nest egg. No equity. No nothing. Why does this...
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...
Hey, it's Brandon Lewis and I don't know if you can see behind me, but my gym parking lot is absolutely freaking full. And why is this the case when normally my gym parking lot has about half as many cars in it? It's be it's New Year's. I was standing next to a guy who's been a member here...
Today, we are going to talk about three steps to calculating an accurate estimate. Okay? There's so much to selling painting services that has nothing to do with the price that you come up with, but a large part of it does. Today, I'm going to specifically address this in a longer video than I would typically do, and...
Hey. It's Brandon Lewis, and I'm here in front of the house. We decided to do a little decorating this Christmas. I apologize for the noise. We live very near an urban center. Sylvia's six years old and she really wanted us to take the outdoor decorations to the next level. Frankly, I've been pretty skimpy and lazy about...
Do you have painting critics in your life? Do you have people who tell you that you'll never make it in this industry, in this business? Maybe you've even convinced yourself because you've had years where you haven't been able to achieve the financial goals or the personal goals that you want. I'm here to tell you, they're absolutely...
