TCF177: (REPLAY) Painting & Persistence with Josh Abramson

In this episode Tom talks with Josh Abramson founder of Allbright Painting. ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING began humbly 27 years ago with a few hand-stenciled wooden signs hung up on street corners in the San Fernando Valley.  After receiving his training and certificate of completion from West Valley Occupational Center in Woodland Hills, CA, Josh Abramson would go out everyday and try to promptly respond to the incoming phone numbers on his pager by pulling over and finding a pay phone in the hopes that he would be the first contractor to call the customer back.  His persistence and hard work paid off and slowly the business began to grow.  The early years were extremely rough, but eventually he hired his first employee and began to make a name for himself.   -->Get daily text tips from Tom by texting "Tips" to 719-299-3852 <-- Want to stop sucking the life out of your contracting business?
