i love your colors and I am thinking of starting my own business at home. My son has autism spectrum and he is 5 so I will be home for a while. I got do something because my husband travel some and I need to get my mind on something that I enjoy doing and I love to paint and redo furniture.

Hi Michelle, Although I don’t really know what it’s like to be in your situation, I do at least a little. I was a a Child and Family Therapist(LCSW) for 10 years before I started painting and worked with several families with autistic children. It is incredibly stressful and when your husband travels, even more so. I hope you have a good support network of family and/or friends. As autism has reached almost epidemic proportions, support groups are much more available. If you are not already involved in one I urge you to seek one out.
Back to painting….I love painting and my career has evolved to the point it is profitable. But it does take time, and I was thankful i was not supporting a family when I started. Also in general people want to pay you very little for you time. Hold your ground and make sure you are paid according to your time. Otherwise you will burnout or become incredibly angry and negative. Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is no fail, so I think it’s a great area to begin. Best of luck and please keep in touch. Happy New Year,Leslie xxoo
