“The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.” – W.M. Lewis
I love that a new year is filled with promise and adventure. It’s like a fresh slate waiting for us to write our dreams on.
But sometimes, when aspiring home stagers have to move from simply dreaming to taking action, it can feel overwhelming.
For me, that happens most when my goal requires me to trust others to do their part. Not my strong suit.
In fact, that’s one of the things I’ve always loved about my home staging business. It’s basically me.
You probably think it’s more complicated than that, especially if you watch HGTV. I’ve staged homes on TV and in real life, and I can assure you the two situations are entirely different.
Or, you may have heard some people refer to “hobby home stagers” as those who don’t have a giant warehouse filled with their own inventory.
I’ve never had a warehouse and I’ve staged hundreds of homes and made up to $10,000 a month doing it. I don’t consider that a “hobby”, I consider it a “business.”
Complex business models are not necessarily better.
Just like it takes longer to write an excellent 10-minute speech than a rambling one hour one, it takes more sophistication to boil something down to its essence and make sure it works efficiently and profitably.
That’s what I’ve done with the business model I share in the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program.
As I head into the 12th year of helping creative home stagers, launch and grow their own home staging businesses, I’m really proud of their achievements. You can read about some of them here.
