What Our Students Say
Soooo worth it! Sometimes you just have to take a leap of faith.... and this is one where you need to JUMP as fast as you can!! :) - Dondra Merrell
I just did it in the fall and I am thrilled with all I have learned! I have a ways to go still, I'm still mid "learning Curve". Tamara is 100% correct about putting in the time to create and learn the possibilities of the finishes! Absolutely worth it!!! ❤️
Just DO IT. It's MORE than worth it. But remember you'll get out of it what you put in too. Just from your question...you'll do GREAT! I've been an Amy Howard Believer for 7+ years now. JUST DO IT!
Honestly, I hesitated at first, because of the price. I thought to myself, I'm doing ok with the pieces I'm flipping now, why do I need to spend out all that money? I finally just decided that me and my passion were worth the investment! Let me tell you, learning how to use these products and master their versatility is key and Amy, through this course and her mentoring sessions, teaches you how! It opened up SO many doors creatively for me! It also built up my confidence enough to officially start my business and increase my clientele I have never regretted my decision.
Honestly, it has changed my business dramatically! I've been painting for 10 years and adding new knowledge and products is a must! This course has pushed doors open for me greatly. I now paint for a interiror designer and local home builders. Trust us when we say... it's worth it!
