SCORE Space Coast Small Business Spotlight - If Walls Could Talk LLC
The idea to start my own business never crossed my mind, I was working for a contractor and had plenty of work. The longer I worked for him, the more often people would ask me for a business card, in which I did not have. As I continued to get side jobs in which he was not involved the idea popped into my head and I thought “why can’t I do this on my own”? Although I had many people tell me that construction was no place for a woman, and I would not make it far in this profession, I just did not feel this was correct. I began to search online “how to start your own business” and the information I found was overwhelming! Then finally I found Score. After sending an email explaining my distress I quickly received a response and was assigned a mentor. This was a game changer. I now had direction and someone to answer the questions that Google could not. As I began to make the steps everything started coming together and I quickly realized that I could go so much further in this than many people thought I could. I realized I had a talent that could not be limited to gender. As I started to hand out my freshly printed business cards and booking new jobs I knew that with the help of Score I had succeeded. Even in a competitive field, I am now the owner / CEO of my own painting company, If Walls Could Talk LLC.
