Today I am even more confident and PROUD to be a BOD member. Kimberley is my coach and business partner, and BOD has my back.

Nikki Fisher Gigault, Milton ON

Since becoming a member of Business of Design 18 months ago, my revenue has quadrupled and my clients are much happier. I’m really enjoying being a business owner now and have hired a purchasing coordinator and a junior designer. My best clients are coming back to work with me and the whole process from my first interaction with the client to Installation Day has become easier. Kimberley is a super mentor and holds nothing back in her BOD videos and webinars!! She’s developed a process that fits every project, large and small, and she gives you the tools to implement the system seamlessly. From selling the initial design consultation to presenting my client with a 100% complete design + pricing to coordinating my team to get it all done, Kimberly’s process was the answer I needed to build my confidence in selling my service, grow my business, and enjoy work each day.

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!
Martina Voss, Upholstery Couture

All of this information is so incredibly helpful. I am so thankful for your guidance and your willingness to share your experiences with us. I have learned so much from you via the BOD website as well as the Podcast. Thank you, thank you for all that you are doing to help Interior Designers across the world and for being our cheerleaders. It is refreshing in this business to see someone like yourself who is not afraid to talk about problems and concerns that all of us have. This industry still seems to be secretive and I am so glad that you are willing to be transparent to us.

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!
