A Chat with Local Painters Inc.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Taking time to "do it right the first time "is our commitment. We offer interior and exterior painting services for both residential and light commercial buildings. We pride ourselves in putting the paint where it belongs, not the surrounding areas. A quality paint job for a price that's fair.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Years ago I lost my corporate job after 18 years of service due to a RIF (reduction in force) spurred by legislation. The move stimulated me to want to flex my entrepreneurial muscle. Making a small business successful is a big challenge that is full of many rewards.
What do you love most about your job?
I love that I now have the flexibility to make it to my kids school and sporting events to support them. It's still a juggling act but the reward is in their smiles.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Tears! One customer's prior experience with a contractor didn't end well. She found in comfort and trusted me. And when we did what we said we would do she was elated with faith renewed. Mrs. B. She opened my eyes that day and reconfirmed my motto, anything worth doing, is worth doing right.
