One on One

Previous Operators Speak
I learned to follow the systems. I wish I would have followed more. Being organized is a HUGE bonus. Your painters can make you, or break you. DMs have a super weird amount of knowledge that you wouldn’t even think they’d know.
Facing unforeseen challenges and coping with culminating stressors can be rather unpleasant. However through hard work and dedication, I can truly say that this job has greatly enhanced my understanding of how to run a profitable business.
Experience is the greatest education an individual can receive, and I learned more this summer than I ever could of going to school. I have grown more confident in my abilities to run a business and be an entrepreneur.
