It's not a scam!

Boy, I got a call from a gentleman who viewed my website and the Faux Painting System that the Lord gave me and he wanted to know if it REALLY was that easy?! I responding excitedly..."Yes!" He told me that he and his wife had been online for 3 hours looking for faux painting tools or DVDs to buy so that he could learn the art and begin to do some work on the side. Well, we talked for quite a time and I'm writing this post for anyone out there who might go to my website and ask the same thing. Next time I hope to discuss the amount of salary one can expect from this growing form of decorative painting.

You mentioned here that you would post something about the amount of salary we can expect to receive if we go into this business. I sure have thought about it...not sure it will come to fruition, but if the Lord is in the decision making...ANYthing is possible!

If you have it, can you post the salaries?

Dear Jennifer,
My apology for not keeping up with my posts in blogging. Got too much on my plate... argh...lol

I totally forgot that I wrote that I would discuss the salary that one can make with this business.

I have been doing this since 1996, so I am quite fast. Therefore, you have to keep that in mind if you are just beginning - you won't make as much. I usually charge about $2.25 a square foot and that comes to about $75 - $90 an hour. Remember that this is not 40 hours a week, so it might seem like outrageous money, but not really. Don't get greedy cause you could make up to $100,000 a year yet have no life.....ouch. I just did 3 garage doors and 4 french doors and made about $1200. It took me 2 1/2 days but I worked hard. I should have extended it to 4 days and then I could have had some time for other things and not feel overworked. So I am still learning to hear from the Holy Spirit. Ask HIs guidance if you should do this. I love the way it brings me before those who need to see the love of Jesus. If you do the same, He will open big doors for you. You could start with a bathroom a week and that would be about $300 extra a week for less than one days work - to supplement your job right now. That way you get experience before jumping totally into it. However, if you are not working somewhere else, then I would go for it. Love ya!
