CEO and Founder of Mountain Skyline Painting in Denver, CO.

“I didn’t know a whole lot about painting. But I knew customer service, and approached the company as a customer service company that happened to do painting.”
“If I could describe the early days; I was full of excitement, adrenaline, and fear…following the hustle mentality. Saying ‘I don’t know what I’m doing, but I’m going to knock on some doors and see what happens.’”
“I think to an extent there’s management involved, but when you have guys who just do things the right way and want to impress, then things go well.”
“Every day I have this idea of who I am and where I’m going now that I’m following a system, instead riding a horse and just trying to hang on as it runs as fast as it can.”
