Jackie, an elementary school teacher, recently shared her story about how she turned an opportunity to decorate a local bakery into a new career in home staging.
Her story reminded me of something I had read. Back in the 1800s, Louis Pasteur said, “Chance favors the prepared mind.” His words are just as true today.
Ten people can be presented with the same opportunity but only one recognizes it and has the discipline to take action.
Or, like me, you might hear or see the same information multiple times over many years, before the lightbulb finally goes off. I was very surprised to discover an old file with a newspaper clipping about home staging that I had kept for 5 years before “discovering” the idea of becoming a home stager! I just wasn’t “prepared” the first time I stumbled on the concept!
