Your deck can really suffer and take a toll from year-round exposure to the elements—wind, rain, sun, snow, and foot traffic. Your deck’s finish will inevitably start to wear off, leaving the wood looking old, peeling, weathered, and battered. If the wood loses its protective layer of stain, the harsh elements can eventually split or rot the wood. For these reasons, maintaining your deck is extremely important, and it does take a bit of work. If you have a weekend to spare, here are some tips for how to stain your deck. If you are not the “do-it-yourself” type, College Pro Painters specializes in exterior staining and painting, and provides free estimates to do the work for you! Read More
Using Entrepreneurship to Give Back
Posted On May 14, 2013
I am a College Pro Window Cleaning franchisee in Andover-Anoka, MN.
With the knowledge I've learned through College Pro and our Entrepreneurship class at the University of St. Thomas we started a business to help children with cancer. It is a one-for-one program selling hats. For every hat we sell, we give one to a child battling cancer.
To date, we have sold and donated over 1,200 hats across the United States.
If you've got the means, help us spread the word.
I used a lot of what I learned through College Pro to help start this business and it has thrived in the five months we have been operating so far.
