For many years I have been self employed and have had my many ups and downs.

One of my biggest victory's is when I worked harder at just being people's friend rather than trying to always sell them on the next paint or Custom Airbrush Job.

Yes you guessed it I am a Custom Airbrush Artist and Painter and have had a collision center, custom shop, built custom choppers and much more.

The story is, that instead of trying to always just push push push a great new idea on them, I simply started being a friend and offering people a place to hang out for coffee breaks, lunch breaks, etc.

This was a bit risky with the insurance laws the way they are and having people outside of my office area, however it was a chance I was willing to take for those friendships.

By doing this I noticed my intake started growing very quickly because they trusted me and seen all of the incredible work that I was doing by me allowing them to have a place they could belong too.

Now I have taken those same techniques and have applied them to our online business and our sales are starting to explode.

By simply giving people a place to belong, and making them feel welcome, they trusted me and felt relaxed, and then wanted our services for themselves.

It took me over 10 years to figure this out, and now as a result of those struggles, we have implemented that with online and it is working for us.

Sometimes life's lessons come with a steep learning curve, but many times it's well worth it in the end.

Sincerely,

Michael
