Meet Dio Chiu of Tempera Paint Solutions in Long Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dio Chiu.

Dio, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I would spend summer vacations working alongside my father at the age of 16. He would have me at the job site performing light duties making sure I was learning along the way. I began to learn the techniques of the trade and was able to adapt to his expectations. I always admired his commitment to his work and the determination to provide for our family. It taught me strong core values and gave me discipline. His reputation as a professional painter in the Long Beach area was established providing over 25 years of experience. After high school, I began to work with different contractors taking advantage of learning new things. I had the privilege to work with some of the best tradesmen in the industry. It took a few years to realize I needed to create a company to help my father expand his business. I had made up my mind that I was going to be self-employed and focus all my time helping out the family business. I was able to apply for the contractor’s state license and successfully created Tempera Paint Solutions in 2016.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
One of the challenges can be marketing the company and knowing how to reach the right audience. Online marketing, promotions, and advertising can be expensive if you’re not using it correctly. Establishing clientele can also be a factor along the way.

I would have probably got myself more informed about implanting different techniques in the field.
