Finding time for everything is hard for all of us, but it’s always interesting to see how some people complain they have no time to get their business going, while others steadily move forward even with kids and a full time job.
I’ve taught home staging and provided business coaching and advice to thousands of home stagers and I can generally spot who will be most successful early on in my dealings with them.
They’re the students who dive into the subject trying to learn all they can, they’re actively engaged during our calls (Business Accelerator Coaching or Staging Diva Dialog), they ask questions, they take action and they keep going even when times are tough.
I’ve also noticed that the most successful stagers tend to be the most organized, which allows them to follow through and jump on opportunities when they come up, and create their own opportunities when they don’t.
For example, some send me news about their businesses so I can write about them, which in turn gets their names on hundreds of websites and builds more business for them. This is a free service I offer to my students yet a relatively small percentage make the time to use it.
Observe whether you’ve been sitting on the sidelines passively, or whether you’ve been actively building your own opportunities. Do you need to adjust your approach to get better results?

You’ll already find some interesting comments from other stagers, why not join our discussion?
