September 6, 2022

Listen Now

Yes, it is possible to consistently protect your margins. Getting clear about which vendors and suppliers help you do that is critical for every design professional who intends to sustain the business and be profitable.

In this episode we learn:

  • stop chasing tiny discounts—your time is valuable so pause to consider the profit first
  • be transparent with clients about pricing
  • never ship “curb side”, deliver to a receiver and install properly
  • like a good travel guide, the design professional keeps clients informed about what’s happening next and when



Get the tasks that leave you drained off your plate (likely organizing your procurement). Studies show that struggling around big decisions for too long is detrimental to your brain.

About Peter & Alex Spalding

Peter and Alexander Spalding founded Daniel House Club after years of operating their own design firm. Even though the firm grew quickly, it was difficult for the pair to ensure each project’s profitability. Presenting compelling pieces that held a significant discount was tough. Initially, they built software for managing their own sourcing and procurement, and they found the process streamlined purchasing so much, they began to share it with other designers. Today, Daniel House Club is open to all design professionals.
