"W hen I come across something that's exciting, I' ll let you know," is a phrase I've heard more than once. It's an interesting predicament that this mentality places me in as the editor of the magazine, the person in charge of gathering the projects that get published, because on the one hand, this means that we're doing our job right by writing articles that tell great stories, of making an exciting tale out of something that the applicator might think is an average project. But on the other hand, it means that people who are working in the field on projects that might teach others a trick or two aren't letting us know about them. CoatingsPro is a magazine about contractors and for contractors. We feature real-world projects from your point of view. And that does mean you! Common Thread I've been doing research for our anniversary timeline, and there's a common thread that I've noticed throughout the 15 years that CoatingsPro has been published: from day one, our goal has been to try to give you as much information as we can so that you can do your job more profitably. at may mean more safely, efficiently, and accurately, too. I know I've certainly explained that before — and I'm sure I' ll explain it again. at single goal is why we share information on marketing your business, why we try to make the reader feel like he or she is on the jobsite with the applicators featured, and why we share Notes From the Field, for example. On every page of CoatingsPro — yes, even on the ad pages (those show new products and services that might help you, too, after all) — we want to give information that might help arm you and your company to achieve that goal. In this issue, for instance, you' ll find out how not to focus just on your bottom line (page 26), how to use online rating sites to help market your business the right way (page 24), and how you might be able to use netting safely on your next at-height project (page 32). Real World: Season 15 We're celebrating our 15-year anniver- sary in 2017 with this issue, with our inaugural Contractor Awards Program, and throughout the year online. We want to celebrate you! And that means that we're going to continue to feature real-world projects and applicators. We can't feature real-world projects without projects from…the real world! Drop us a line to let us know about your next project. You could be the next contractor featured on the cover of CoatingsPro Magazine. Even if you don't think there's an exciting story to tell, we can make it happen together. CP
