It will answer any doubts that you might have and launch your business into profit.

The Staging Diva courses totally exceeded my expectations.

"Home Staging is one of the HOTTEST growth businesses" says Entrepreneur Magazine

Staging Diva in Entrepreneur Magazine 2008

home staging courses

Are you a natural born stager?

Most people drawn to the idea of staging already know that they were born with some natural decorating talent because friends and relatives have been complimenting them on their homes and asking their opinions for years.

Many Staging Diva students talk about how often they've moved because they always craved a decorating project. Others recount how much they enjoyed decorating since they started with their doll house years ago. Some confess that their spouses never know where the furniture will be when they come home from work.

"I took the Staging Diva Program and loved it! I also ordered the Color Guide and Portfolio Guide, all of which saved me big time already!
home stager PA Business officially launches Sunday, youngest starts kindergarten Monday, kids will both be in school, time for MOM to make some MONEY!" Melanie Bailey (PA) *

We are all HGTV addicts.

If any of this sounds familiar, you're probably a born home stager. You don't need to have any formal interior design training to do this work.

The home staging courses in the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program take you from startup through growing a profitable home staging / house fluffing business.

These are not "decorating" courses but you will learn how to turn your talents into a real business.

You will learn how to handle a home staging consultation and even how to furnish a whole empty house, but course time is not taken up with topics like "where would you put the couch in this room?"

The assumption is that you have some innate talent for how furniture fits in a room, even if you have no formal design or decorating training. If you have no talent whatsoever, this is not the right career for you. If you have talent but you are feeling a bit insecure or shy about it, that's normal. This will be thoroughly addressed in the training program.

The Staging Diva emphasis is on boosting your confidence with solid information and on the business, marketing and pricing side of things, because without this knowledge you can't succeed or make money, regardless of how good you are at arranging home furnishings!

"For 8 years I wanted to start my own business. So many people I know have had the courage to start their own business and I always admired them for it. I could never have gone ahead with it until now.
You truly made this so simple to do as your training allowed me not to think of being nervous but so excited to get started I was bursting. Ontario Home Stager
It's a great feeling to know I'm on my way to creating a business to call my very own. It is all thanks to you, your Staging Diva courses and your great ability to inspire so many people to do what you have done. Thank you for everything!" Francesca Midolo (ON) *

Staging Diva Training Program Certificate

Staging Diva Graduate Certificate

Graduates of The Staging Diva Training Program receive a personalized certificate like this by mail within 4 weeks of ordering the program.

Staging Diva Grad Badge

Graduates also get a badge that they can use on their web sites, blogs and in marketing materials.

Upon completion of our 5 courses, you can call yourself a "Graduate of the Staging Diva Training Program." This is not an official credential as there is no such thing as "accreditation" or "certification" in the home staging business (despite what some companies claim).

In other words this credential is as official as any other the difference is Staging Diva is one of the few training companies that will tell you no credentials are official.

Accreditation or Certification implies an independent authority monitors and approves credentials and standards in the industry. No such authority exists, and it lacks integrity to suggest otherwise.

It is "buyer beware" in the field of home staging training, so research your choices carefully. Make sure you're being trained by someone who has personally grown their own successful home staging business and doesn't just teach about it, or offer free staging to boost their real estate business!

And, check out their business credentials. Debra Gould has an MBA from one of the top business schools in North America, and has been a recognized authority and published writer on business and marketing since the 1980s. Does any other program:

• provide so much free information even when you're not a student?
• offer you a free recording of questions and answers about the staging business?
• let you meet your trainer by email and phone before paying?
• give you a money back guarantee?

Support doesn't end with the training

Once you are part of the Staging Diva inner circle of students and graduates, you'll find tons of ongoing support!

All graduates of the Staging Diva Training Program are eligible to participate in the Staging Diva Directory of Home Stagers.

This is a great way to build instant credibility in your market and get you prominence on the Internet. If you're worried about the time and expense of building your own web site, our Directory will get you up and running within 7 days for a relatively small fee considering the cost of building a site and the number of visitors we receive!

Staging Diva Directory of Home Stagers

Members of the Directory also get FREE PROJECT REFERRALS.

If you're part of the Staging Diva Directory we send all home staging projects in your area directly to you for FREE.

Graduates who aren't part of the Directory can also apply for home staging jobs or projects that we advertise from the hundreds of leads we receive as a result of our media exposure.

Staging Diva Network Online Discussion Group

Anyone completing the Staging Diva Training Program can join The Staging Diva Network.

This online discussion group provides ongoing support and a sense of community with other home stagers. Share the joys and challenges of starting and growing your own home staging business with others facing similar issues. Ask your questions and learn from the experience of others. Enjoy the sense of belonging that comes from being part of a supportive group of like-minded people.

Staging Diva Graduates can also participate in Staging Diva Dialog, a monthly telephone conference call with Debra Gould who answers questions and also brings a new learning topic to the group. These calls are recorded and all members also get a copy within 24 hours, especially helpful if you can't make it live.

"I had only listened to the first 3 Staging Diva courses while commuting to my day job as a college professor, when I had my first home staging client meeting. I felt so well prepared and had them eating out of the palm of my hand using your tips. The job went incredibly well and I could not tear the smile off my face after I left.
I had to strongly resist the urge to skip back to my car in case the clients might be watching from their doorway.

Nothing I have ever done has given me such an elated feeling. Debra, thanks for your fabulous Staging Diva courses and for your mentoring! You have also inspired me to broaden my business horizons. You're amazing!"
