Rather than start from scratch in an entirely new industry, Dan decided to fall back on one with which he had previous experience: painting. “It may sound like a radical change, but for me it was a very synergistic transition,” he says. “I worked in the painting business during my college years, so I was familiar with the trade, but I also learned a lot about customer service in my sales career.” In 2004, Dan founded CertaPro Painters of Silicon Valley; in 2018, his company merged with CertaPro Painters of the Peninsula to form CertaPro Painters of the Peninsula & South Bay.

(This is a rough breakdown, all numbers are rounded.)
