My business is doing so well, I am expanding into a larger office, adding staff and moving into the busy downtown core of Kitchener Waterloo right beside the brand new Google building. And although I have worked my tail off I must say I owe You and BOD a huge THANK-YOU!!!

Amanda Baechler, Kitchener ON

I have been a member for over a month and I’ve already drank the kool-aid and implemented the 15 steps, read your first book, and watched a ton of videos. Thank you for all you do in the community. You have inspired me to become much more active in the Florida ASID and IIDA groups to help support our community of designers locally. I will report back!

Nathan Vanags, Orlando FL

Kimberley Seldon, I am listening to your Power Talk Friday interview with LuAnn Nigara, and I am just sitting here remembering the first time I saw you in High Point. Honestly, I was just there for a CEU. I didn’t know who you were. 5 minutes into your talk, and I was like “where has she been all my life?” I know you probably get this a lot, but I want you to hear me out. Until you came along, I didn’t know my head from my tail as a business owner – 10 years in the game now. Now I am a money making machine (haha) in my business…..all thanks to you. I looked at my final numbers for 2016 with my CPA last week (she has been doing my books now for over 7 years). She got up from the computer and hugged me, and whispered to me “keep doing what you are doing.” She was so proud to see that I am finally where I need to be financially. This is all thanks to you! I am professing it publicly here, because I want everyone in this group to know just how much you have changed my business, my confidence and my self worth as an entrepreneur. And as my CPA would say “Keep doing what you’re doing.”

Veronica Solomon, Katy TX

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.

Barbara Straub, Bear Creek PA
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

I am an interior designer in Brussels, and I love your podcast and the way you share so generously your knowledge and experiences. Thanks so much for your huge impact to my business, my life and the whole interior design industry. Big hug from Belgium
