Have you ever heard the saying, “Those who can, do. Those who can’t, teach.”? I don’t believe that is true. Today, I am introducing you to Misty Leonard, the perfect example of someone fantastic at doing AND a phenomenal teacher. 

Misty is the owner and operator of MDLeonardDesigns and Misty Leonard Exclusives. Misty is also a longtime partner of ours at CCDIY. She’s someone whose work ethic is unmatched in our community, and her willingness to teach has inspired countless artists. 

You have to…be your own advocate, and believe in yourself, and just push those naysayers and push those negative commenters aside and just be proud of what you’ve created and what you’ve done.” – Misty Leonard.

Highlights from my chat with Misty include:

  • Introducing Misty Leonard (2:05)

  • Setting up a Patreon group (19:33)
