Well I just stumbled across this site as I was planning to start a painting company and found that this site is very informative for me from the business perspective. Just a little info about myself. I'm 21 and hail from Vancouver B.C., Canada. If anyone on this forum is from around here I work at General Paint which is the number #1 Paint supplier in Western Canada. Some of our sister companies are Pittsburgh Paints and Ideal Paints. I'm mainly just starting up a paint company for a side job to help me pay for school and while surfing the net looking for advice I stumbled across this site and realized I had to register because it seems like I will be spending a lot of time here so just wanted to say hi and hope to be a good addition to this community.
