A Letter and Roadmap to Creative Entrepreneurs

from Amy Howard, Founder and CEO of Amy Howard at Home®

Creative beings are born with distinguishable aptness and the inventive ability to think outside the box. The capability to turn such talents and ideas into a sustainable income however, can quickly become a pitfall.

A Maker’s Guide is a comprehensive roadmap written to those who desire to start a business using the giftings that have been a part of their makeup since childhood. Touching on every stage of the entrepreneurial journey – from paralyzing fear to creating incontestable strategies – author Amy Howard, founder of Artisan Studios, Amy Howard Collection and Amy Howard at Home, counsels artistic minds with her personal and business expertise collected from her own 30 year venture. Howard’s curated letter is comprised of pragmatic business instruction, the discipline of intention and a petition to pursue the freedom and satisfaction found only in following a dream.

"...your work and passions can collide." – Amy Howard

"This body of work is much more than a book, it’s a necessity. We all need words of affirmation – someone to tell us that who we are and what we do matters. These words will bring rebirth to your dreams. Revisit them often and believe: This life is not just about living, it’s about following your hearts."
