Ready, Set, Go?

Sep 19th, 2018

Throughout my travels and time in the PPF industry, I’m always asked about training and how to go about getting into the business. In my early years it was all about trying to get that prospect at our facility for a 3-day course and run through the same platform that had been done years before […]

Changing Markets

Mar 29th, 2017

Spring is in the air, or at least it has been in some parts of the country. Here in Boston, we got a taste of it for a few days, but then Mother Nature kicked us in the “you know what,” making us wonder when winter will finally be over! I personally am done with […]

Stop Dabbling in PPF

Jun 29th, 2016

I recently got into indoor rock climbing. It’s a unique and tough sport that challenges you mentally and physically to overcome obstacles and fear. Now that I’ve been a few times, I’m getting better and more confident in what I can do. I don’t let certain limitations stop me from taking more difficult paths—and you […]

Be Proactive Vs. Reactive

May 4th, 2016

Too often we get so caught up in the mundane tasks that come with either being a business owner or an installer in the paint protection film (PPF) industry.

Having such a large sales territory, I have the gratifying responsibility to travel North America and see shop owners and installers in all different regions and territories.

What’s Your Brand?

Mar 2nd, 2016

I know, it sounds like an easy question. Have you or anyone else asked what your brand is? Does anything come to mind other than that you install a specific brand of film? Maybe you offer multiple brands of film, which can confuse consumers on the message you’re trying to send. In the overall picture, […]

Don’t Be Insane

Jan 20th, 2016

Happy New Year, everyone! This was an interesting year for paint protection film (PPF) with lots of changes in product, brands, and overall awareness. I can honestly say there has been some major growth in our market and it’s because our installers are pushing manufacturers to make things easier, last longer, and to improve overall […]

‘Tis the winter time and we in the industry are beginning to see and feel the lull. For those of us who are veterans of the up-and-down business cycle, we’re accustomed to this experience. We’ve planned for it and won’t skip a beat this season. During this winter, challenge yourself. With more time on your […]

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Nov 25th, 2015

We’ve all said it to ourselves. “If I did this on my own, I could make so much more money.” I know I’ve said that in the past. For the most part, we’ve all started out working for someone else to get our feet wet. Then, a moment comes—or maybe a few—that cause us to […]

The Best Ways to Start Selling PPF

Nov 11th, 2015

I want to first welcome everyone back from both the International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off™ and SEMA. These were two great events to network, learn and explore ways to build your business. Both had people who expressed a strong cry for help, particularly how to increase their sales. The question takes a bit of […]
