How I got my first 3 customers and the steps for you to do the same.

Sean Arnold

House Painting

I started a residential interior and exterior house painting company for less than $200.00. I got my first 3 customers by going through neighborhoods, knocking on doors, offering free house painting estimates to people that needed it.

Within 2-3 hours, I generated 6 leads by using a simple pitch and made over a $1000.00 my first week, and I never touched a paint brush.

The Tip

To whet your beak

Don't invest a bunch of money in an idea before seeing if it's what people want. Keep your start up costs low and re-invest the money you make back into the business
