Grow A Small Business Podcast

Feb 16, 2022

In this episode, I interview Terry Begue, the Owner and Founder of Begue Painting, Inc., a painting company based in Cleveland, USA, making customers’ homes look new and gorgeous. Terry is passionate about perfecting his people skills which happened to be the reason his business has blown up.

Started his painting business in 1978, aged 18 with no money, no experience, and no connections, and unfortunately failed miserably. However, Terry refused to give up so he has refined his process for business and personal growth through customer engagement and retention. He has seen growth since then, growing his people from 1 to around 12 FTEs and doubling revenue each year.

Terry has been doing something with everything he learned in running a business. Today, Terry is an international speaker and author of, "Attract & Keep Customers for Life." He’s been using this book to help entrepreneurs and small business owners grow their businesses and so to provide a great life for their families.

  • Started his business at a young age with no money, experience, and no connections.
