Tales from the Top Featuring Corrie Leister, Inspired By U (1)
Time & Location
About The Event
Corrie Leister is a professional cabinet refinisher who originally started her business in June of 2015 from her garage to make enough money to pay for private school for her children. She created an online network of other refinishers in hopes to create a strong learning environment where professionals can share information and speed up the learning process. In time, the network has grown to over 50,000 members and Corrie is sought out as one of the leaders in the refinishing industry. Corrie has taken her business from the garage to a 3400 square foot space and has gone from working alone to having 13 people on her team. In addition to her Inspired By U Cabinet Refinishing business, she runs classes every month where she brings in some of the leading experts across the nation to teach on their specialty and add value to other professionals. When Covid hit in March, their business took a brief hit, so she partnered with an Industrial Coating company out of Italy to launch her own private label paint line to create sales when she couldn't go into people's homes. It has been quite a journey, but it's still in the beginning phases as there's so much more to be accomplished.
