College Works Painting gives students the opportunity to run a small business throughout the spring and summer months. Chelsea’s sales season ran from February to mid June. She was expected to market her business, complete estimates for clients, sell painting projects to homeowners, maintain contact with clients, prepare for production, and make excellent grades while attending UCLA. Not only did Chelsea learn quickly to market her business, but she found her most optimum markets and expanded from solo door-to-door marketing to running a highly specialized marketing team. This initiative was able to fuel the needs of her business as she closed out this season with nearly $100,000 in revenue, in the top 5% of Central California division, and became the #1 female Branch Operator in the state of California.

College Works Painting Branch Operators are expected to begin managing job sites immediately after the school quarter ends in June. This happens to be the same week finals are held to end the term of the school year. Under extreme pressure from her professors and her work supervisors, Chelsea not only started production on time, flawlessly, but also performed well on her finals. From June to September, she hired multiple crews of painters, sub-contracted wood repairs, completed paint jobs in a timely manner, met and exceeded client expectations, budgeted projects, managed expenses, generated profit, and continued growing her business by extending her sales season.

Chelsea was an absolute pleasure to work with, being the most autonomous and pro-active branch manager in the state. Her competitive nature and drive for excellence was exemplified in the business she conducted, as evidenced by the high level of satisfaction of each of her clients.
