“What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything” -Vincent Van Gosh



Hi, I am Rob Youness, owner of Great Lakes 1-800 Painting. Here is my story.


I began painting on the weekends with my Uncle Mike’s company at the ripe age of 15. I painted with him for almost ten years. After picking up side job after side job through friends and family, I decided to start my own business in 2007.


From 2007 until 2011 I was on the job. Like any new company, it was up and down. Feast or Famine. I thought many times about moving on to a new career.


And then, in 2012, an opportunity of a lifetime slapped me in the face. I had the opportunity to buy Hilgendorf Painting a very well respected residential company in my hometown with a track record that exceeded 20 years in business. I accepted the challenge.


Great Lakes Painting went from about $150,000 in revenue to $350,000 in just one year. Even with the growth.


The Problem: I was still just an average painter. I was working in my business and not on my business. I didn’t have a clue how to make my business profitable with professional branding.


That is when in 2014 I was introduced to Steve Burnett through his YouTube videos, the Ask Steve B Show. He has forever changed the way I run my business.


I signed up as a member in the community and Steve sent me a free copy of his book. The past two years, our team has implemented his systems and process.



I can honestly say that with the help of Steve Burnett, April Burnett and the entire DYB COMMUNITY I am working a 30 hour work week and we have doubled our business since starting our membership in 2014.


I have learned and taught my team the DYB System and I would love to help you do the same. Are you tired of wearing too many hats? Are you tired of working 70+ hours each week to keep afloat?

Let us help you become the next success story!

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... http://www.DYBCoach.com/01 Or JoinDYB.com
