The dream of a paperless business…

I’ve always been fond of technology and how it can improve our lives. It is a natural fit for me, however I lacked the time needed to find the right programs.

Way back in 1996, I started my painting business or

better yet,

I started painting and knew nothing about building a business.

I was young, eager and proved a strong work ethic with a keen eye for painting.

I loved painting long hours but then


writing bids and all the office paperwork.

I remember the day I found handwritten NCR forms!

It worked well when it was just me and a couple guys, even though my handwriting was similar to a raccoon gone wild with an open paint bucket.. but that’s another story.

My business grew and lessons were learned, maybe more than once.

In 2004, I read the book the E-Myth, which changed how I viewed and operated my business forever.

Business Systems became my focus and my business grew, and with it the paperwork!

Enter Steve Burnett in 2014 with high tech solutions for my archaic paper wasting business.

I was already using my iPad to do my bids but I was missing crucial pieces of software to complete my paperless painting business dream.

With the help of Steve, I was able to rid myself of countless hours of paperwork, running job folders to crew leaders, printing countless job information.

We implemented the digital time clock and job management software recommended to us by Steve. We now run everything through our iPads and iPhones. This has freed up valuable time to sell more jobs, manage jobs easier, and increase profit.


Thanks to Steve, 2015 is our best net profit in the history of ESP Painting.


I’m looking forward to implementing more of his tested strategies, so I can work on my business and not in it.

Now, our paper of choice is 12″ brown!  I guess I will never get rid of all the paper….

About the Author

As a newly single father of two from MI, he struggled to start over as a paint contractor in FL, going door to door. His situation was so bad, even the IRS had mercy on him.

 Feeling completely hopeless, he remembered the story of King Solomon praying for wisdom. Could it be so easy? 

He felt he had absolutely nothing to lose. So, as a bankrupt, divorced, high school dropout, single father of 2 young kids, now living 1250 miles away from all friends and family, started to pray for wisdom.
 And while he continues to wait for the wisdom to arrive, what did come was an insatiable desire to learn and read books… 
Thanks to God for giving him the burning passion to read books, and attend seminars, (oh and winning the wife lottery) he not only cracks the success code and overcomes the struggle, but also streamlines his painting business in less than 3 years, published a how to book, then sold the company. Now he leads a business coaching company for painting contractors so he can help other businesses, like yours, to do the same. Hear more... Or
