Cathy Deano – How a Blank Canvas & Paint Turned Into a Multi-Million Dollar Business

Cathy Deano was looking for “something to do” post Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana. After befriending the co-room mom in her son’s kindergarten class, the two women purchased some art supplies and hosted an art class in Cathy’s barn behind her home. What happened after that first class is quite remarkable.

With 340 franchise locations nationwide (& growing!) and now a multi-million dollar operation, Painting With a Twist is the #1 Franchise in its category.

What I think you’ll pick up on is Cathy’s brilliant ‘simplicity’ on how she and her partner Renee, grew the franchise so organically.

You’ll love this episode. Cathy is funny and her advice is down to earth with not to be missed gold nuggets. Be sure to listen all the way to the end. The gold nuggets keep coming right up until the recording stops!

I think productivity really depends a lot on the people you surround yourself with. So we talked about people smarter than you, but I am saying people more organized than you are too.” – Cathy Deano
