Meet the CEO & Instructor

Amanda Hardin, the Founder of Lipstick Tactical. She has taken an unconventional approach to her career. As an academically trained nurse, she worked in a traditional role as a Registered Nurse, ultimately leaving healthcare to pursue a career in commercial real estate where she still actively works after 15 years. Amanda keeps her RN active along with her Red Cross Instructor certifications incorporating her medical knowledge and training into her classes at Lipstick Tactical.
She has been a nationally sponsored competitive shooter and appeared on Season 3 of History Channel’s reality TV show, Top Shot.
Amanda approached life with a passion to learn, a desire to grow, and a commitment to share with others her journey of success by guiding them through theirs.

About Lipstick Tactical

Lipstick Tactical is a company that inspires and empowers. Not only because of the benefits of learning how to protect yourself, but because it's a revelation on how to "become" yourself...without boundaries or fears. It's about confidence and finding out just how much power you have within that has lied dormant. It's not just about shooting guns or learning how to take down a predator, it's about standing up, expanding your boundaries and letting nothing hold you back.

How fast can you get on target?
