Meet Amy Howard

Amy Howard is well known in the furniture finishing industry. She has painted for presidents, princes, and celebrities. Her home, with all its gorgeous furniture, has been featured in multiple magazines and books over the last 35 years.

After publishing two books and teaching her online course, The Old World Finishing Course, she realized her students wanted to continue to learn a much wider variety of finishing techniques both for their personal use and for up-leveling their own refinishing businesses.

The Finishing School's Inner Circle, workshops, and courses is Amy’s answer to this demand for more.


Why Work With Amy?

✥ Amy Howard started a finishing business, built it, and it ended up doing 6 figures in its first year. Within 3 years she had 23 showrooms nationally and multi-millions in sales annually.
✥ She develops her finishes and knows the ins and outs of the necessary steps to create finishes like no one else. Amy’s proven processes as well as her business acumen make her the perfect mentor for creatives. She too is a creative, she understands the frustrations, distractions, limitations, and roadblocks that keep you from staying on track and being successful.
✥ You don't need a mentor, a mastermind group and a road map with step by step to reach your goal. You need loving accountability, someone to praise you and give you direction as well as feedback. Growing your finishing business is also a lifelong learning experience. You need to continually learn and experiment. That is why I am going to teach you a new technique or finish each month. Then I am going to share with you how to incorporate this into your business, how to charge for it and share it with your customer base online and in person. 
✥ Learning great techniques and finishes is essential to a thriving business. However, you then need the building blocks to growing a business. You need someone who has done it and been successful at it many times over. Amy will take you from the basics and each month you will build on your skills and to do's that she will give you. Learning how to build an email list, use social media to reach your ideal customer, how to price your items, how to build your personal brand, marketing yourself, photographing your pieces and more. 
✥ Join Amy as she launches her Inner Circle and relax knowing you now have a plan and a mentor to walk you every step of the way to success. Her passion is now to teach others how to.
