House Painting is in my Genes
I painted my first home in 1997, when I was just a nineteen year old kid without a clue. My father co-owned and operated a painting company in Gainesville, FL named Bucket and Ladders, which I had the good fortune to be a part of. That company changed a lot of people's lives.
When they started out, my father and his partner were just two guys painting apartments for someone else. It did not take them long to figure out that it was more profitable to own the company, so the partners began to lay the ground work for Buckets and Ladders. After securing a contract with the apartment complex they lived in to handle all of the painting, the two of them took out a loan and purchased everything they needed to begin their company. Before long, my father and his partner were running one of the busiest painting companies in their region. They were both recovering alcoholics, and they used their company to reach out and help many people struggling with alcoholism. Many folks working a recovery program in the Gainesville area got a new lease on life through working at Buckets and Ladders.
In many ways, Clinton Painting Services
Even though I never inherited the company, the skills and tools I collected through working for them gave me the confidence I needed to start my own painting company when the time came. It took me many years to find the motivation and courage to accept such a responsibility, but that all changed when my daughter was born. Having her has given me all the inspiration that I could have ever asked for and more.
Over the next two weeks I built the Clinton Painting Services website, purchased a van, designed flyers, ordered business cards, got insurance, and bought lettering for the van. It has been a labor of love, and other than my daughter, my greatest accomplishment.
