Be Xtreme (The Origin Story)

This company was never intended to be what it is now. It started with painting and remodeling as a side-job in 2011. At the time, Rick already had a full-time job that he was happy with and enjoyed.

Then business slowly started picking up for his painting, and in 2012, Rick had to make a decision between his full-time job and pursuing his own business. After some serious thought and prayer, Rick decided to take the leap. He left his full-time job and created Xtreme Painting.

At first, it was just he and his brother running the company and working on all the jobs. After about a year, Rick had to start hiring crew members so he could keep up with the fast-growing popularity of his business.

Xtreme Painting has not been without setbacks and roadblocks. In June of 2012, we bought an ad in the phonebook that did not print until July. We had no other forms of advertisement at the time, so work was extremely thin for the whole month of July that year, and we almost went out of business. We ended up knocking on doors to get jobs that month, and it was enough to get us through. This has not been the only roadblock we’ve experienced as a company, but we are thankful that God has and continues to keep a hand on our business. 

For Rick, the hardest part of running this business has been keeping a balance of money. He says it’s a careful balance between charging enough for services to cover labor costs while still providing customers with an affordable and reasonable price. The best part about having this business, Rick says, is having connections with his employees and seeing how being a part of this company has positively influenced their lives. He also is very grateful to be able to do what he loves for a living. 

What has kept this company successful is each member of our team’s desire to make ourselves different and better from our competing companies. But more importantly, we know that God has plaid a huge role in our growth and success.
