You love what you do and you are good at it. But guess what? You deserve to be paid for it, too. Not only that, but you deserve to be paid well. In this seminar, we’re going to talk about Salary, which is the fixed, regular payment you receive for your hard work as an interior design professional. Sounds simple, but do you know what most designers are earning? Not what they are charging…. what they are earning?
Who has more experience running a design firm, you or your clients? You, of course. So why would you allow clients to dictate terms that have an immediate and sometimes unpleasant effect on you and your team? Learn how to set and maintain clear and firm boundaries when it comes to fees, margins, work order and process.

For the past few years, most design professionals have been riding high on economic tailwinds, powered by the Covid pandemic and our clients' desires to improve their living spaces. While none of us has a crystal ball, it's a good bet the economy will change and those tailwinds will become headwinds. Being prepared for that moment is essential for the business owner who intends to not only survive the changing economy, but continue to thrive.
At Business of Design®, we spend a lot of time talking about money. It’s not because money is the only thing that matters to us. Not at all. However, a business that isn’t profitable is doomed. To run a successful interior design business (the one you dreamed of owning when you started out), you must gain mastery over money.
Join us for this month’s BOD Live where we’ll talk about custom lighting.
We’ll be joining by BOD™ Members, Michelle Burbidge (Ciana Lighting) and Genevieve Wild (Wildly Illuminating), to discuss why you should never leave your lighting plan up to the electrician and how lighting can transform and elevate a space. By educating ourselves, we can educate our clients, levelling up our game as designers and adding to project profitability.
Attention UK Designers! If you're a past, present, or future member of Business of Design®, join us for a virtual coffee date on Thursday, October 12th at 3pm BST.
If you listen to the podcast and think, "that won't work for me here," join us. You'll have the opportunity to connect with other BOD™ Members and design peers in the UK who are using the BOD15 to run thriving businesses. Our systems work, but sometimes you need to hear it for yourself.
Join us for this month's BOD Live where we'll talk about logging your billable hours effectively.
If your clients are questioning the tasks you perform on their behalf, or arguing about design fees, or you’re simply at a point where you want to grow your profits, then it’s time to transform the process of logging hours into a simpler one – one that is far more effective.
