College Pro Success_The Secret Sauce

Goals are the answer. No, the question is not “What do the Maple Leafs get lots of?”…I wish! The question is “What is the most important thing to have when running a small business?”

I knew goals were important coming into my first year with College Pro but I wasn’t able to really put my finger on why they were so important. I guarantee I achieved as much as I did as a College Pro franchisee because of my goals.

Tips from College Pro Painters: Exterior House Painting – Color Choices & Mood

Posted in college pro

Tips from College Pro Painters -  Exterior House Painting – Color Choices & MoodMost of us don’t paint the exterior of our homes every year or two, and we live with our color choices for a fairly long time.  College Pro Painters understands this and their franchisees would be pleased to assist you with the tools to make your color selection, as a part of the College Pro Painters experience.

Some of us are quite content to simply keep the same color each time we have the exterior of our home painted.   However, for the adventurous homeowner, there are a tremendous amount of color options.  When we talk about color, we not only think about the exterior walls of our home, but the full package, including the trim, main door, garage door(s), and railings.

Exterior Paint Trim Colors – Give Your Home a Personality of its Own

Posted in college pro



The trim on your home is the finishing touch and can be very significant in the curb appeal of your home.

If you liken the exterior of your home to a piece of art, would you hang that art without an appropriate frame?  An appropriate color of frame will depict the portion in the canvas color that you wish to bring attention to and draw out.   Equate that thought to the exterior trim of your home.

College Pro - A Day in the LifeRunning a business is a lot of work.  It takes dedication and passion and a will to succeed.  It takes long days, being open to making mistakes and getting your butt kicked every once in a while but rebounding as fast as you can.  Learning what it takes to run a business for the first time is like this, x100.  My first experience running a business was through College Pro and it has forever shaped my life.
