How Do You Eat an Elephant?

One bite at a time.

From: Brian Phillips

Dear Painting Professional,

Eating an elephant is a lot of work. A typical elephant has more than 1,000 pounds of meat–enough to fill the freezer on 10 typical refrigerators. Admittedly, I have never tried to eat an elephant. But I have tackled a project that can seem equally daunting–developing procedures and systems for my business.

If you are like many painting contractors, you know that you should develop systems and procedures for your business. But maybe you don’t know where to start. Maybe you even bought my e-book, Getting Out of the Bucket, and still feel overwhelmed. Maybe you aren’t exactly sure how to implement the ideas in my book. Well, I have good news for you.

Our 36-week subscription course provides you step-by-step instructions for developing and implementing systems and procedures. Each week you will receive an email with a workbook and other materials to help you develop procedures–and more importantly, implement them into your business. This course will help you eat an elephant, one bite at a time.

While this course is based on Getting Out of the Bucket and uses some of the same forms and materials, it is not necessary to own Getting Out of the Bucket to benefit. You can however, purchase Getting Out of the Bucket by clicking here.

I won’t kid you–you will need to put some effort into this course. I can tell you what to do, but I can’t do it for you. I can provide you tips, forms, worksheets, and more, but I cannot implement them or fill them out for you. But if you complete each week’s assignment, I guarantee that your business will be immensely improved at the end of this course.
