EP 276 | Yes, Architects Too with Brooke Aitken Part 1

June 7, 2022

Listen Now

BOD™ member, Brooke Aitken has some questions about how the main teachings of Business of Design™ apply to her business, as an architect rather than an interior designer. While Broke says BOD™ stopped her from throwing the towel in and gave her renewed hope for her business, she still has lots of ambition and is looking for the next push. 

In this episode we learn:

  • it really is possible to present the full design scheme at STEP 5
  • what happens when you can’t legally buy and sell furniture
  • nailing down an install date is possible with the BOD™ 15



Joining BOD™ was the best piece of advice (from KS on a podcast) because it gave me an instant connection to a global think tank of BOD™ members. I quickly realized that being in the BOD™ community is raising the profile and lives of all interior design professionals across the world. The more we teach our clients the nature of our process and how it should be commensurately paid, the more we are globally redefining the nature of interior /archi design. #thepowerofmanywithasingularvision
