February 21, 2023

Listen Now

Kylee Dean is a BOD™ BOSS design superstar from Las Vegas. During this episode, Kylee reveals her process for anticipating trouble on jobsites and creating process to avoid challenges and run projects more smoothly.

In this episode we learn:

  • calendar the week ahead in detail
  • always ask yourself… if THIS happens, what and who will be impacted
  • set clear expectations
  • teach your GC, installers, and trades how YOU run your business
  • check all purchases for accuracy
  • anything important should be explained to clients verbally and in writing
  • never rely on GCs or installers to completely understand your design through drawings alone – schedule site visits regularly



Stop letting your insecurities and lack of confidence allow the client to control your business and disrupt your processes. Take control! Trust yourself! Don’t be afraid to run your business like a BOSS!

About Kylee Dean

I’m Lucky to be born with a “creative” spoon in my mouth, and not so lucky that it wasn’t silver! I was a young mom and always knew that I wanted to do something I LOVED doing and get paid for it. So, in 2004 I started my journey as a business owner with a Faux Artist business (If Walls Could Talk). My business morphed through the years into the interior design business I have today. I’ve learned, what my strengths are and what I DON’T want to do.
