Welcome to Mission: Vacation


Are you busy all the time? Dealing with a task list that never ends? Running in a million directions? Are you starting to think that running a painting business is not what you thought it would be? If you answered yes, Mission: Vacation is for you.

Now through November 1, 2022 we will be accepting entries for the Mission: Vacation Season 4. One contractor will be chosen to receive three months of free consulting from Nolan Consulting Group that will include an assessment of your current business, a customized plan, and weekly coaching phone calls. The goal over the three-month period is to implement systems that allow the you to take time off in a sustainable way. APC will report on your story of transformation throughout the process through editorial, podcasts and video.
