BOD & You

As interior design professionals, we LOVE our work because it matters so much. We want our clients to get our best every time, because it’s going to affect the way they live for years to come. But doing our best work isn’t possible if we can’t dedicate ourselves to it. And we can’t dedicate ourselves to it if doesn’t earn us a living.

Business of Design™ is the best professional advice and business coaching available, and it’s just for you. Our mission is to liberate your talent and skill by showing you how to run a business that supports you, empowers you, and lets you love your work again.


Take Aways

If you’re working as hard as you can and still not making ends meet, it may be time to challenge your assumptions. For instance, would it surprise you to know that you can and should bill for the time it takes to correct deficiencies? Similarly, you also want to bill for the time it takes to order, track and receive items on behalf of clients.

If any area of your business is not working, then make new rules. You are the boss. The boss makes the rules.
