Entertaining, insightful and actionable! 🔥

Whether you’re well established as a painting contractor, or just getting started carving out a profitable niche that’s ready to grow - this is a must-listen podcast for you! Nick does an incredible job leading conversations that cover a huge breadth of topics related to the ins and outs of building a thriving business, and life you can be proud of - with leaders who’ve actually experienced success themselves. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!

Thanks for helping us grow our businesses!!!

I was introduced to The Business Brush podcast and Facebook group by the owner of my local Benjamin Moore retailer, who was actually featured on an episode.

After bouncing around on the podcast list to hear from people who I’ve heard of or met before, I finally decided to just play them all starting from the first season. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND DOING THIS IF YOU OWN A PAINTING COMPANY!!! I’m only partly through season 2, and I’ve already gotten so many great take-aways from some of the most successful people in the painting world.

This group is by far the most amazing place to get honest feedback from other professionals in the paint industry. I’ve been part of several other “chat rooms”/groups, and this is the best in my opinion. It’s amazing to hear advice from someone who was in my shoes 25-30 years ago, or even just yesterday, who’s willing to share their experience with no strings attached. It truly helps other business owners avoid expensive headaches, and grow their businesses quicker than they ever could on their own.

After learning about the event Nick is hosting in Denver next month, Crank 2020, I made plans to attend and I’m super excited to meet 40+ other company owners and learn more about their challenges and wins.

Keep up the awesome work, Nick! Your efforts are an amazing gift to the industry..... I can’t say thank you enough!!!

Yesssiiiiirrr ,

I’ve learned !!!

What an amazing Source of information!!
