Clint Harp has had quite a few jobs in his life and tried numerous careers including most recently being a salesman in Houston, TX. Finally reaching the end of his career searching rope in 2011, Clint decided to quit his sales job and go for his dream of building furniture and owning his own company with his wife, Kelly. The last thing either of them expected, however, was to move to Waco, TX and find themselves a part of a hit show on HGTV.
For 5 seasons Clint could be found regularly on HGTV’s Fixer Upper as the dumpster diving, reclaimed wood loving carpenter and furniture artisan. The Harps and their team aired their own show “Wood Work” on the DIY & HGTV network. In addition Clint just released his first book “Handcrafted a woodworker’s story”. Out now where books are sold.
Together with Kelly and their 3 kids, the Harps spend each day pursuing their dream and blazing the new trail of owning their own company, Harp Design Co., which provides quality furniture and home goods to customer all across the U.S. and abroad. Constantly adjusting to unexpected national exposure, the Harps work hard each day to grow as a family and a business whose core values are love, beauty, and creativity.

This week’s episode was a special one for me to create. Why? Well it was not due to the celebrity status of our featured founder nor was it due to his gift for handcrafted woodworking (although I am fascinated by woodworking). This episode was special because of how incredibly similar my entrepreneurial story was to this week’s guest, Clint Harp.
