From working for others to working for herself, my guest today is an inspired painter and entrepreneur. Amy Sadler believes in hard work, taking the initiative, and reaching out to make connections. These principles have served her well in creating her business, Amy Sadler Designs and her working group Mica Mixology. Amy has harnessed her gift for mixing paints and colors to create a successful online business that has recently expanded to in-person events. Today we’re going to talk about how Amy started her business, the pivots it has taken, and her plans for the future.
Amy Sadler started out as a broke single mom in Missouri. After taking a few classes in painting, she quickly started getting jobs painting kitchens for people. Eventually she transitioned to the online space and started reaching out to make new connections.

She now has a lucrative business and is writing a book on paint finishes and flipping furniture.
