Guess who is trying to recreate a “This Guy” t-shirt to announce her new jobby job job? Behind the scenes I have been working with Marian from Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint to become a Certified Retail Trainer for her Milk Paint line. What? Little ole me?
I love Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint. You know it and I know it. I was one of the first retailers to sign up to carry her milk paint line and from the first time I painted with it I was in love. I have blogged about painting with her Milk Paint a bazillion times. I have taught almost 200 people how to create gorgeous furniture in their homes and businesses with Milk Paint over the last 2.5 years in my workshops. Teaching is my passion. Above blogging and selling paint I love to show people how to take control of their creativity with a piece of furniture.
So what is a Certified Retail Trainer? When someone signs up to sell MMSMP they are required to take a two-day training. This helps them become an expert for customers to rely on – believe me – as a paint retailer you get some crazy project ideas and questions from time-to-time. Training helps retailers be Milk Paint product experts for their customers. I get the privilege to on-board these men and women into the world of Milk Paint. What an honor! I am so grateful Marian has entrusted me with this job. Sometimes I admittedly get caught up in a world full of Facebook, Pinterest, and Blogging – which leaves me feeling like I don’t always measure up. But I do know that I work really hard, I really care about people, and I do everything with a lot of heart. I hope the retailers I meet leave my studio feeling inspired to teach their customers the power of Milk Paint!
