Dreams can become a reality through hard work over time. However, some dreams don’t even surface until we get into the thick of life and work. Issac McDugle did not think about business ownership until others empowered and encouraged him. “If you were to say this is where I would be when I was 10, I would think you’re crazy!” But over the last several months the idea of starting his own painting business grew roots and he has now developed his plan for success.

 McDugle Paints LLC is a locally owned and operated interior and exterior painting company. Based in rural Turner County, north of Parker, McDugle will service a 50-mile radius of his home, which is outside of Monroe. Issac has been building his expertise over the last six years and truly enjoys the work. With great attention to detail, he is all about achieving the highest level of customer satisfaction while delivering a top-grade painting job. McDugle Paints LLC will serve both residential and commercial customers for interior and exterior painting needs.

 When asked about what starting his own business means for him and his future, he shared “This opportunity means a lot to me. For a long time, I have been told I need to do something on my own because I have always succeeded at everything I have tried. To see business come to life means everything to me. I’m so excited for the opportunity to work with the small, and big, communities around me!” In the future, McDugle hopes to grow the business and deliver the best results in the area.

 The Southeast Enterprise Facilitation Project assisted Issac and his fiancé, Mayson, with his business plan. It is now a matter of executing that plan to bring the business ownership dream to reality.
