There is nothing quite like having your own business to make you feel financially independent and in charge of your own destiny. One easy business that you can start up, that is just right for the current economy, is a home painting business. Why home painting? People always need services. Even in the Great Depression, service businesses were still in hot demand. Since most people are not selling their homes and are staying put, many of them want to spruce things up a bit. Painting is one of the most inexpensive ways that people can fix up their surroundings. Most people do not know how to paint nor do they want to learn. They would rather hire a painter who is in the business to do this necessary, but messy, job. House painting is a recession proof business. It also works well when the economy is good and people are selling their homes. One of the first things that a real estate agent will advise someone who is looking to rent or sell a home is to give it a fresh paint job. House painting entails both inside and outside house painting. Both of them are basically the same concept, although different paints are used for inside and outside. Your company should offer as many services as possible in order to fit the needs of just about every customer. This book will teach you all you need to know about how to start your own home painting business, how to hire help, how to get customers, and what you need to know about starting any type of business. It will also give you an insight as to which are the right paints to use, the difference between paints, the different types of finishes and designs people like to have in the home, stains and even how to deal with customers who do not pay. It is not difficult to learn to paint. It is one of the few trades that does not require vocational training. You just need the right equipment, the willingness to work hard, a few simple tips and the desire to succeed and you will have so many painting jobs that you will not know what to do with them all. Even in today’s economy, people are searching for those who perform services. You can develop your own prosperous business and never look back at the 9 to 5 world again!
