Welcome to Mission: Vacation

Your Consultants

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, APC and Nolan Consulting Group want to help.

Now through January 14, 2019 we will be accepting entries for the Mission: Vacation series. One contractor will receive three months of free consulting from Nolan Consulting Group. This will include an assessment of your current business, a customized plan, and 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.


Thank you to our sponsors supporting better, happier, and more sustainable businesses for painting contractors.
