For three decades, Tom Potts worked in the healthcare industry, most recently as a CEO. For two decades, wife Molly was a dental hygienist. Both in their early 50s, the Potts’ may not seem like conventional entrepreneurs. Yet with decades spent in their previous respective careers, the couple decided that now was an opportune time to live out their dreams of being their own boss by purchasing CertaPro Painters of Cave Creek.
Fed up working long hours to earn money largely for others, the Potts’ realized the entrepreneurship was the way to go. After doing much soul-searching, they came upon CertaPro Painters and knew instantly that it was a great fit. “CertaPro is a name that demands instant respect,” says Tom. “Instead of having to work hard just to make a name for us, by aligning ourselves with CertaPro we have a sparkling reputation from the start.”
Adds Tom, “With CertaPro, we didn’t have to reinvent the wheel—customers know what to expect, a huge advantage.”
Open since September of 2014, the Potts’ have already received tremendously positive feedback from members of the community. “The things our customers have told us about the services we provided for them mean so much to us,” notes Tom. “It’s one thing to think that we’re providing great service, but to have validation of that belief by way of positive words from others is greatly affirming. It helps us know we’re on the right path.
