Your Time to Take Action...

Let Your Peers Solve Your Biggest Business Challenge?  

What’s a “Hot Seat” Brandon? During our two “hot seat” sessions, owners are broken into different peer groups based on sales volume ranges. During your session, you’ll have a specific amount of time to address the ENTIRE GROUP to do two things that could transform your business forever...    

#1 SHARE Your Best Kept Painting Secret – This is the one single strategy, tactic, or tool that has been responsible for breakout success in your painting business. Don’t be stingy... every attendee will be sharing their secrets and bringing an example to leave with each member of the peer-group.

#2 SHARE Your Greatest Obstacle In Reaching Your Goals – Everyone struggles with a specific, recurring problem in their painting business. It could be recruitment, management, operations, sales, marketing, winter work, breaking into commercial, lead generation... you name it.  

What if you could finally solve your biggest painting problem by tapping into the wisdom and knowledge of high-achieving painting contractors? You can! Owners report remarkable changes in their painting business when they directly access the “GROUP MASTERMIND” at the Painting Profits Summit. What will you learn?  

Meet & Mingle with Successful Owners & Help Recognize Remarkable Achievements!

Optional Commercial Repaints Bootcamp PRE-DAY!

The 4-Phase Blueprint for Landing Large Commercial Repaint Clients

Thursday January 28th, 2021 - 1pm-5pm.

You see them everywhere you go... Private schools, assisted living facilities, shopping centers, warehouses, tank yards and high-rise office buildings.

But here’s the question: How many of them are you painting on a monthly basis? Probably not many...

That’s a shame because commercial repaint projects are larger, more profitable and easier than residential jobs. Plus, one good commercial client can represent over $100,000 in work every year.

With commercial repaints, there’s no greedy General Contractor looking over your shoulder or sloppy subcontractors destroying your work.

Most painters want more commercial repaint work, but they simply don’t know how to get it. Over the past six years, Brandon Lewis has helped scores of “commercial novices” turn into professional prospectors and CLOSERS of large commercial repaint clients. Will you be next? You can be...  

You'll leave this workshop equipped with the fully-complete and done-for-you systems, tools, templates, and manuals you need to succeed in any commercial market – guaranteed!  

This workshop is personally and exclusively taught by Brandon Lewis, Founder of the Academy for Professional Painting Contractors and Publisher of Painter's Weekly. Brandon’s track-record for helping contractors land large commercial repaint jobs through effective, duplicatable sales and marketing processes in undeniable.  

Learn his secrets. Seating for this pre-day event is strictly limited due to the room size. Register now!

What is the "The 4-Phase Blueprint for Landing Large Commercial Repaint Clients" PRE-DAY all about?

Is there a limited number of rooms in the room block? NOTICE!!! We run out of rooms each and every year!

2020 Was a Year of Fear...
2021 MUST Be a Year of ACTION!

Fear was the #1 item on the menu in 2020.

Fear of the coronavirus. Fear about the economy. Fear about safety. Fear about the election and the direction of our nation.

Many of these fears – in fact most of them – were wildly overblown. The reality did not match the rhetoric.

The truth is this: Reality and fear rarely align.

While fear does not impact reality, it does impact human behavior. Negatively in most cases.

But it doesn’t have to...

These Painters Should Not Have Had Their “Best Year Ever” in 2020

Amidst all this fear and negativity, I began to see a pattern emerging in my coaching calls.

Most APPC members were “holding steady” at last year’s numbers by midyear.

Many made operational system adjustments that had them earning higher incomes with somewhat lower revenues.

Then, I discovered example after example of painting contractors who were having their best year ever!

How could this happen during civil unrest, economic uncertainty and a pandemic?

One word explains it all: ACTION!

These owners assessed their situation, made plans, then took significant actions to improve business systems and crank up their efforts where they could make the greatest impact.

While their competitors were cowering in their basements or complaining to anyone who would listen, these owners reaffirmed a simple belief: My future is in my hands!

You See, They Ignored the Fear... Both External & Internal!

When fear takes control, you lose control.

Fear can make you procrastinate forever.

Fear will turn your mind into an “excuse factory” instead of a problem-solving machine.

Fear causes people to think small. Plan small. And act... small.

That’s Why ACTION Must Always Take Place When Fear Is Present

At the 5th Annual Painting Profits Summit, we will inspire you to take decisive action in 2021.

We will equip you with the tools and support you need to take action in your painting business.

And you’ll discover how to do with confidence instead of fear.

Getting Started Is the First Step to Overcoming Fear

It is hard to take action and be afraid at the same time. When you begin to act – to get in motion – your brain lets go of fear and focuses on the task at hand.

Your first action doesn’t have to be a big one. It could be doing research, setting up a meeting or outlining a simple plan.

Fear hates action. Even if the action is tiny.

If you have even one ounce of fear, uncertainty or anxiety about 2021 being your best year ever, I’m asking you to take one very small action...

REGISTER for the 5th Annual Painting Profits Summit!

Guess What? I’ll Even Take All The Risk with My 100% PPS Satisfaction Guarantee! You’ll Get MASSIVE VALUE or Your Money Back!

If you attend our welcome reception on Thursday night and the first general session on Friday, yet you feel like you have not received the value you expected, simply approach any member of our staff at the lunch break on the first day and tell them you want a full refund of your registration fee.  

Yep, that’s right... I’m so convinced you’ll gain massive, transformative value from this event that I GUARANTEE your registration fee and that of your guests. All you have to do is let us know by lunch on the first day that it’s “not for you.” But I know that won’t happen...

Listen to the words of the owners who attended last year’s event at the top of this page! Hear the words of owners whose businesses – and yes even their lives – have been radically changed by attending the Painting Profits Summit!  


Every owner deserves a chance to “fall back in love” with the business-end of their painting business. When this happens, things are never the same again...

A Warning for "Fearless Owners" Attending the Painting Profits Summit for the FIRST TIME!


Every year, we run out of rooms in our deeply-discounted room blocks. Every year without exception...  

If you tarry, delay, or procrastinate you will most likely have to stay off-site – away from the action and fellowship so easily accessed by staying at the host hotel.

Are their other nice hotels in Chattanooga? Yep. But you don’t want to have to hassle with parking, driving, traffic, and lugging your carcass back and forth.

So, go ahead and book your tickets and your room today!

Will You Prepare to Have the BEST 2021 Possible?

When you register for PPS 2021, you'll discover the mindset, tools and peer support you need to succeed.

You'll be inspired and challenged to build the painting business of your dreams.

There is no better way to start your year... than with taking this small and simple action.

Ditch the fear... and I'll see you there!
