Meet Your Guide

My name is Amber! You could say I have always been a crafter, pretty artistic and the do it yourself “aka” DIY’er type. I am also pretty sure you can label me a Type A personality, but I think I might have touches of Type B and C too…is there a Type C? Well, if there was a type C, I would probably be that too! You know I prefer to be the “behind the scenes person”. How in the world can all those things mesh well?! Somehow they do.

You know, I think I am a total introvert at times, but I have been known to be rather talkative once you get to know me. I tend to get excited and over the top about my “passions”. I get nervous easily and I tend to be very self conscious, self critical and I second guess myself. I guess you can say that is pretty normal for most people. However, I assure you I am far from normal…Really, I mean it! Just ask my family! Everything I do is always well thought out, I am a thinker and one who thinks outside the box. I guess it is safe to say that the wheels in my head are always turning!

Let me start of saying that Amber is the  most genuine person  that I have had the pleasure talking to her and following her since Dec 2017. I have talked to her mom on the phone and in that first conversation I was these are just good people. 
 
I was off work with a new knee replacement surgery and one night I couldn’t sleep and came across Amber’s live video. OMG it changed me life. I’m 59 years old now and at the time I had just started back painting and drawing. I quit for 10 years. Yes 10 years  I even wrote a children’s book because she made me feel that I could do anything. Listening to her story I thought she is my sister from another mother! She and I had a lot of similar life facts between us. The biggest one was, were we good enough, and confidence.
I started watching her and realized that she was just a cute human trying to make a living doing what was her passion and teaching others how to grow a business.
 
I was learning a lot not just about business tips but how important it was to know what a passion for something was all about.
I realized that I need to get back to what I loved to do was teaching painting and painting because for many years I taught painting and did custom orders.
 
I took her tools and started using them immediately which was starting my business all over again!  It mean’t getting a booth set up, and to get to painting. She is a very honest person and like she said even if you make mistakes learn from them and move on. 
Her turtorials were fantastic and I being from Canada, I had not seen anything like this before.  I joined her Paid Coaching VIP group and still to this day I go back and watch her videos!
 
Because of what Amber has taught me, Now I’m a retailer for DIY paint, Fusion Paint and PIY paint. I’m now at the MVE The Heritage Centre and love it. I now teach painting all over in small towns either on canvas or the basics of furniture. 
 
I have also started live videos as well and I’m no longer working full time and now able to give the business a 100%.  Amber stands on the foundation that to do a business, part time it’s not going to work u have to give it a 100% all the time. Do what you love and love what you do. 
 
If it was not for finding Amber I would not being doing what I love and following my passion and growing my business. I’m proud of Amber and my bucket list is meeting her in person one day.
 
Amber, Thank you for everything and I cannot say that enough you are true inspiration.

We have known Amber since August 2017. She took us in as first time booth vendors in her store in Rincon, GA. Since entering her store, she provided non-stop mentorship to help us grow as a business. Through her coaching, we were able to operate a six figure creative business during our first year. Even though we are successful, well beyond our initial expectations, Amber continues to provide mentorship and support while teaching us how to not only set bigger goals, but how to achieve them. Without her tutelage, our small business would not  be nearly as successful in this short of a time.

Amber is very passionate about what she does and it shows through her servant leadership. She willingly places the needs of everyone else above her own. Taking pride in the knowledge she is able to help someone despite the hardships she may endure personally. Amber lives to share her knowledge with anyone willing to learn. Amber is a multi-talented person. She not only has a keen understanding of the business world she is also an amazing creator.

Amber is an artist, business woman, creator, coach, and friend all tied up in one person. We are incredibly thankful to know and work with her and her family. Amber is going to enrich the life or business of anyone she comes across and will undoubtedly be one of the greats.

I met Amber in August, 2016, while I was planning to open my first retail store, the Coastal Cottage Shoppe, in Southport, NC. Amber provided so much amazing information and continues to be an incredible support to my small business. Amber has a fierce love and dedication to her business, her vendors, and her customers. She has an incredible skill set, regarding not only the technical and artistic aspects of painting, building and upcycling furniture, but also Marketing, Social Media, Finance, Merchandising, Design, and educating those around her to start and grow successful businesses. She is honest, professional, and very generous with her knowledge, experience and talents. I am honored to know Amber and continue to use the valuable information she has taught me.
