Community service is a non-paying job performed by one person or a group of people for the benefit of the community or its institutions. Community service is distinct from volunteering since it is not always performed on a voluntary basis. It strengthens the bonds we have with our neighbors who could use some extra help and for those of us that are capable it is our civic duty to humanity.
For as long as he can remember, Kurt Welch has found himself dabbling in business, whether it be as a young man looking to earn some extra cash or developing useful life skills taking on odd jobs.
Born and raised in Montreal, Kurt’s entrepreneurial spirit prompted him to start his own business seven years ago, something new, that he could manage that would produce profitable results, but also allow him to provide beneficial services back to the community.
With a background in computer science, Kurt’s career path took him in the direction of the corporate world, allowing him to foster his tech-savvy skills and later integrate them into his own business. In the corporate world, there is a language you have to learn, a way to maneuver yourself in a choreographed dance to present and sell exactly what you want. The skills he learned allowed him to better manage people and different personalities and led him to start Unparalleled Paint.
Unparalleled Paint is a fully insured painting company working to serve Durham Region, Toronto, and the GTA. With over fifteen years of experience, their knowledge of the products they use, attention to detail and customer service experience allows for them to confidently ensure each client a satisfaction guarantee.
Kurt and his team are experts at what they do offering interior and exterior painting services in your home or business. As a detail-oriented individual, Kurt knows what it takes to get a perfect paint job. Clients search for contractors they can trust, people they can rely on to complete a job to the highest of standards. Their highly skilled, professional and respectful crew takes care in treating your property like it’s their own, and they ensure that all flooring and furniture is covered to protect from accidents and dust.
The outside of any home or business needs to look great to ensure the proper curb appeal. This is especially important for businesses that want to attract customers. Unparalleled Paint can help you choose the right colors and apply them so they look great and last for as long as possible.
Painting your home or place of business can be a major undertaking. Without the right techniques and knowledge, the end result may not be what you hoped for. At Unparalleled Paint, their professional painters can provide the quality you desire to create a professional look for any home or business. Their eco-friendly painters use the highest quality paints and other products that are safe for the environment without sacrificing beauty and longevity.
However, it’s not only about the paint, community service plays a huge component in the work done by Unparalleled Paint. Running a profitable business is not the only thing that matters to Kurt. Putting the unity in community is a huge part of why he commits to the work that he does.
Kurt says it’s all about reciprocal relationships, and the stories of people that give even when they can’t afford that drives him.
Their Paint it Forward program allows for deserving members of the community who commit time and effort to do what they can to help others and give back to have their homes painted for free. These stories come from people from all walks of life, people who are in need, people who are less fortunate, good people who can’t afford to do such a big project themselves.
Unparalleled Paint is not only concerned that business is going well, but that the community can also thrive with their efforts. In addition to helping others they have also decided to be responsible for the environment by using low and zero VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) paints. This is only the first step in creating a green working environment realizing that the large impact that products and the way they run their business can have on the environment.
“I am the business and the business is a reflection of me,” Kurt says “I am not here for personal gain, and I believe that we should not hold on to money so tightly.” Building a business that benefits everyone is his end goal. Every project they work on, every job assigned regardless if it is a contract or voluntary the same time, dedication, and commitment to satisfaction is there.
Building brand awareness, ensuring people know who you are and where you stand in the greater picture is how more businesses in the community can build the bridge to success.
