Alison & Tone - Vancouver Island
When my son (Tone) was little I always called him “Sunshine” so when I started my painting company I wanted him to be a part of it so I spelled the name SONshine.
I also wanted to allow the possibility of guys (sons) to paint for us too.
The "girls" was added because when I painted for someone else, I inevitably encountered people who demanded to talk to the male boss or who thought women couldn’t work in the trades. I wanted to avoid that stereotype.
It worked! I have amazing clients all over Mid Vancouver Island who support Sonshine Girls Painting and women working alongside men in the trades.
It has been an incredible journey.
Collaboration beats competition
Nothing beats a good team
Communication is key
Laughter should take up a lot of space in lives
In hugging those you care about
Coffee is a good start to the day
In making choices today to make tomorrow easier
Your decisions today should ensure no regrets tomorrow
We can’t change other people
In leading by example
In trusting yourself
We believe you know what makes you feel good
Dealing with the trades should be as easy as possible
...the details matter
(oh, and chocolate should be dark and Tequila is a sipping drink!)
I know none of this seems to have anything to do with house painting but it does... anyone can paint but a company with standards is the better company to have in your home or business.
