Hello and welcome to the Pro Painter Podcast! Same great content with a brand-new coat of paint and a few extra treats here and there. This week, Nick May sits down with a local friend, Garrett Hurlbut of A Perfect Finish Painting
Garrett is a second generation painter. He started a small painting business while attending college, dropping out after a semester to paint full-time. Things were going pretty alright for a few years. One day, he learned that he was going to be a father. The news urged him to research ways to make money fast to buy a house. In his search he stumbled upon this thing called “subcontracting.” He gave it a go, and the rest is history.
Garret will discuss the perks of being a subcontractor painter. One benefit that will appeal to many of you is that you get to paint and grow as a business owner without worrying about legalities, insurances, tax liabilities, all that fun stuff. The subcontractor model gave Garrett the freedom to love his job and raise his family without any hurdles. Sounds like a dream!
