Then came the faithful day that the furniture store manager came to Terri and told her she HAD to sell pink sleeper sofas, because the store had bought too many and needed to get rid of them quickly.
That did it!
Terri decided she couldn’t take it anymore and made the leap to go out on her own. Even though she had a tween at home, a mortgage, and a new car payment – she knew that the time had come and she HAD to decide what kind of future she wanted to create for herself and her daughter.
She started marketing to her ideal clients, creating systems for selling design services, and writing letters of agreement and proposals. She even created a system for specifying, pricing, selling, ordering, tracking and delivering merchandise.
Terri couldn’t believe it – she’d started having more time to spend with her daughter, no longer worried about paying bills, and was having fun!
She quickly created a backroom system and developed staff to help her grow a multi million business. Her roster of clients included model homes, luxury residential, and commercial projects. The cherry on top came when she won the ASID National Award of Design Excellence within 5 years of starting on her own.
Her reputation started to grow and she found her phone ringing off the hook from fellow designers looking for help in crafting contracts and capturing new jobs.
She was happy to help and after her daughter graduated from Design School, Terri felt like it was time again to make a change and created Design Biz Blueprint.
If you’re an interior designer and decorator facing the same struggles she had those years ago, you can bypass the hard times and mistakes, and start having the life and business you’ve dreamed about and love!
