Curb Painting is an excellent job for high school students, college students, and anyone who has a few spare hours a week to make some extra money. This book describes in detail how to paint homeowners addresses on curbs. A curb painter can dictate his/her own schedule and has no boss other than a homeowner who has purchased curb painting services from them.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Introduction Thank you for purchasing my course. I hope that the information contained in this book will help you make extra money in your spare time.One of the first things you need to understand about curb painting is that you are basically a door-to-door salesman selling your services "cold." Rejection is part of this job. You will get turned down more times than you can count. But rejection is also the beauty of this job, because when you do get rejected and a homeowner doesn’t want to purchase your services, you move on to the next house and you have only wasted about a minute or two. It only takes about five minutes to completely paint the house address numbers on the curb, so you do the math. You can get rejected 20 - 30 times in an hour and still have plenty of time left over to make your $40/hr. This job is more about persistence than about skill. Even if you are not good at doing this job at the very beginning when you are just learning the craft, you will still make money. When you first start, you probably won’t be as good as you will be in a month, and you might even be a little nervous, but that is normal. You are learning a new skill and you are trying something new that you have never done before. You will find that as you get better at selling your curb painting services to homeowners (after a few days), you will be making more than $40/hr, possibly up to $50 or $60/hr if you really get good. If you think about it, that is only two more houses in an hour (not a lot). Ok let’s go!

New Material

2nd Edition Many people have asked me, "What about the use of advertising flyers?" I have integrated information about the use of flyers promoting curb painting services into this course. I hope this information helps everyone. Also, the premise for course came to me about ten years ago when I originally wrote some of the material, which is included in this course. As with anything, times change. What I use to charge customers ten years ago $5, is now equivalent to $10. I have seen other curb painters charging $10 or more for this service and thought that it was about time for me to update some of the techniques in this course to allow my students to make $10 per curb or $40/hr on average. With this change, the title of this course has been changed from "Curb Painting - A Step by Step Approach to Making $20/hr" to "Curb Painting - A Step by Step Approach to Making $40/hr." I hope everyone finds this new information helpful!

3rd Edition Some student suggestions have been integrated into this edition of the curb painting manual. In addition to 3" high stencils, information is now included on use of 4" high brass interlocking number stencils. Three new curb borders are now included in the appendix for use with these new 4" size stencils. (10) new pages of material have been added including better descriptions of the curb painting process and new pictures of "me" showing the process and painting a curb address.

4th Edition Two new borders have been integrated into the course. These borders are made out of vinyl flooring and will help curb painters when dealing with curbs that have sloped or curved surfaces. Additional material has been incorporated into the course to show how to make a border using wide masking tape instead of being obligated to use the cardboard, wood, sheet metal, and/or vinyl flooring as the curb border. Although using the masking tape is not a preferred method by me to paint curb addresses, the material and technique is given as a reference. Information has also been included on how to create address numbers on trash cans.

7 of 11 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on January 24, 2006
Format: Paperback
My parents had seen curb addresses painted in their neighborhood and had even seen a curb painting flyer attached to their mailbox flag. They suggested that I give it a shot and bought this book for me so I could make some money after school. After reading this book, I hit the streets around school. I got 10 hits my first day. $100 isn't bad for 3 hours work especially when some of my friends were only making $7/hr after school. How can you beat being able to work whenever you want and make a few dollars. Thank you for writing this book. I would recommend it to any student looking to make a few extra dollars. An easy read!!
