In a field where many “colleagues” are extremely competitive & secretive, Kimberley Seldon is a huge breath of fresh air! She has very generously taken the time to spell out step by step, in deep, super specific detail, how to run a successful design business! Even if you have many years of experience and great training, as I do, there are plenty of fresh ideas here which you will certainly want to incorporate in order to take your business to the next level, and the next, and the next! The videos and the books are both an extremely worthwhile investment of your time and money. Thank you for everything Business of Design!

I am a new “disciple”…loving this information. This is stuff they do not teach you in design school! I wish I had more hours in the day to watch the videos and read the books… I am working on it!

I have been using the site and growing thanks to BOD since 2013. BOD has been very helpful in the growth and development of my business directly. The information content is unique to BOD in comparison to other avenues of Con Ed. It’s price-less in terms of how it has improved by business processes/systems.

Anna Kowalczyk, Toronto ON

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 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

Isabel Gómez Tinoco, Belgium
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!
