Interior Design Business and
Project Management System
This is only for those who truly love interior design, and want to learn how to build an interior design business filled With Happy Paying Clients
In case you still have a few questions about whether or not you're in the right place, I've made this video to answer some of the most common questions.
I am about to share why some interior designers are THRIVING designing beautiful rooms for ecstatic clients who trust them and buy everything they present, while other designers fail miserably and have to give up on their dream.
Maybe you’ve taken some design classes — or even have a degree in design — but you’re afraid you don't have the experience to run your own business.
It Might Be that you’ve tried to get your dream business started and it’s been one disappointment after another. Now you’re ready to give up…
It’s not your fault!
Design school doesn’t prepare you to build your own business or to work for yourself. You'll learn how to design, but not how to be an Interior Designer!
One more important fact that you won't hear in design school, or even among other interior design professionals, is that our industry commonly uses fear tactics and guilt to discourage new designers from working for themselves.
Other people might simply not tell you the truth, but
I’m not afraid!
If you have a passion for designing
— which I'm sure you do, if you're reading this —
I can teach you HOW EASY IT CAN BE to
Design for a Living!
How do I know?
Because hundreds of successful designers
have proven that this system works...
