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, with a natural home birth. That is a fantastic, remarkable, and bold accomplishment. Watching that miracle of life unfold really points you back to something very central, and that is this.
Most of us paint to live, we do not live to paint. Next Painters Weekly, we’ll get back to business as usual. But for now, I want to ask you to think about why do you do what you do and are you doing the best that you possibly can for your family. If not, can you either: A, make your business a little better and tackle some tough projects?; or B, is it time to work a little less and to focus a little bit more at home? I’ll leave you to ponder that. In the meantime, I want to share a few pictures of our bouncing baby girl with you and her amazingly remarkable mom, Kristen. I’m Brandon Lewis with Painters Weekly and the Academy for Professional Painting Contractors, signing off. Talk to you next week.
