About Julie Painter:

“I get asked occasionally about my business name. Dallas Girl Friday. Well, Dallas is my city and one of the great loves of my life – Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose, #texasforever and Girl Friday literally means an efficient and faithful female assistant. I’m enneagram-obsessed and I’m an 8w7. This means that when you work with me, you can expect I will kick your butt, not sugar coat the tough stuff, cheer you on, empower you, and definitely make you laugh. My StrengthsFinder top 3 are Command, Positivity, and Discipline.”
