We recently connected with India Butts and have shared our conversation below.
Hi India, thanks for joining us today. Innovation comes in all shapes, sizes and across all industries, so we’d love to hear about something you’ve done that you feel was particularly innovative.
The most innovative thing I have done in my career as a professional Face Painter. Would have to be my latest creation of a water activated, anti bacterial Face Painting removal Wipe. My creative ideas just don’t stop there, I also have a Face Painting Children’s Activity Book that’s full of fun for any age! You can find my Book at Wal-Mart.com or Amazon.com. For Face Painting removal Wipes send me a email email@example.com
India, before we move on to more of these sorts of questions, can you take some time to bring our readers up to speed on you and what you do?
My Face Painting journey started at my church back to school event. I decided to give it a try and everyone loved my work. A hidden talent I didn’t realize I had. Over the years with my creativity, I have blossomed into the artist I was designed to be.

Learning and unlearning are both critical parts of growth – can you share a story of a time when you had to unlearn a lesson?
I have learned that you have to be careful who you associate yourself with. It’s very true that Birds of a feather flock together. Make sure your team has the same goals and business class as you. Remember if your friend is going around trying to destroy other people career just to make it to the top you will also become that person.
My backstory: I had a friend that I thought like-minded and had the same goal driven ambition I had. Once I began to hangout them i saw how the person was treating clients and other artists in a bad way. I began to distance myself. I would always listen when the person needed to vent about things they had to endure within the industry. One day God opened my eyes to see that they was the problem and was purposely trying to destroy others careers. Once I called them out about it as a friend, the person then tried to destroy everything I had built. Luckily I was smart and built my own connections outside of our friendship.
Can you tell us the story behind how you met your business partner?
Fortunately God sent my husband to be my Business partner. When my husband and I first started dating, I told him that I had a hidden talent and didn’t know how to enhance it. Since then he has coached and pushed me to my role as Face Painting by India. As a power couple, we are able to help each other pursue our dreams and passions.
