I had a trade day (Step 3) and things went flawlessly – client was there and said, “I can’t even get the cable guy out, and you’ve got everyone here.” Thank you! Love Business of Design! You made me look like a superstar!

Kimberley and Business of Design completely changed the way I ran my business. I feel more in control of my projects, more confidence in my processes, and upped my fees immediately. Within 2 weeks, I’d signed a client for about 3x what I would have previously charged. I highly recommend investing in yourself through BOD.

I raised my fees right after I found BOD. Within 2 weeks I landed a $10K flat fee project. I was scared to death to tell the client that number, but the client didn’t bat an eye. Previously that would have been a $4K fee.

When I heard Kimberley was launching a podcast I was so excited! I have been a member on Business of Design for about 6 months and I can honestly say it’s been a game-changer in terms of how I think about my business and myself as a business owner. The podcast is awesome to re-affirm everything she teaches on Business of Design and also gives another perspective. The only thing I would change about them is to make them more frequent – once a week isn’t enough! Thank you Kimberley and the BOD team for helping me make so many changes in my business and have more confidence as a business owner.

Thanks Kimberley! One of my best designer clients suggested your podcast to help us understand the needs of our designer clientele. When I listened to episode 19, Successful Vendor Relationships, I nearly cried. THANK YOU.
That is the first time I have ever heard these words spoken from the design trade. I really really appreciate the value that you have given to your makers!!! As upholsterers, we often work in a vaccum and wonder if our feelings about how we are often treated are universal or just unique to us. Now I know!! Can’t wait to learn more!

I am on vacation and I brought the Business of Design books with me for a re-read. I read them years ago but am loving the podcasts so much I thought I would do a re-read of the books. I glean so much valuable information from the podcasts and books. AND more than anything I am valuing my work more and they have given me a kick in my step again. So thank you, thank you, thank you!
