BoD Kick Start Program
Everything you need to get your design business off the ground
In times like these I want to be able to offer you some hope and help guide you through the next few months of uncertainty. We don't know what lies ahead, but how is that any different to normal life as an entrepreneur or business owner right?! I've seen a lot of fear based talk in the past few days and I'm of the belief that these are unhelpful, not only for your own mental health but also everyone around you.
I'm here to help. I want to help you feel empowered and confident you can tackle what may lie ahead for us all.
Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much. ~ Helen Keller
So, let's roll up our sleeves and find the opportunity in the uncertainty.
I started my business just after the last global financial crisis and if there's one thing I've learnt from that process is that resilience and adaptability are two key skills of a business owner and they will be what get you through this time. I'm a firm believer in systems, processes and routines for business success, even in times of uncertainty. Are you ready to join me and learn what my systems and processes are?
Who Is This Mentor Program For?
Has anyone ever told you, you can’t make money from doing what you love? Or that following your passion and hoping to monetise it is a waste of time? I've designed this mentor program for you to show you that it is possible.
This mentor program is specifically crafted for:
- Homewares Retailers
- Anyone looking to start a business in the decorating industry
Does this sound like you?
- You can style a vignette with your eyes shut
- You’re a walking encyclopedia of decorating knowledge
- You hoard every decorating magazine you ever set eyes on
- You thoroughly enjoy meeting and working with new clients and crafting a beautiful home for them
- Tax time fills you with dread
- You feel like the business is guiding you rather than you guiding the business
- You wish you understood what your accountant/graphics designer meant when they speak to you in their industry jargon
Maybe you’ve been at this for a while but your focus has been on the creative side of the business with less focus on the specifics of running the business smoothly behind the scenes. Or you’ve taken a tonne of courses and online workshops about running a business but don’t understand the technical jargon because no one has been able to explain it to you in a way you understand. That’s all about to change.
Who Am I and Why Should You Listen to Me?
Great question! I've worked my entire career in the creative industry. Starting off in visual merchandising with luxury handbag retailer Oroton, then moving into residential interior design on Sydney's lower north shore, property styling homes for sale and then into a buying role for an online homewares retailer working with Australia's best wholesale furniture suppliers. While in these roles I saw a huge gap in the market for affordable interior decorating services and set out to do something about it.
