When you have a passion for home staging and/or interior design it’s impossible to keep it stifled inside.
I love hearing from Staging Diva Graduates like Pamela Sholty who have left behind jobs they despised to reinvent themselves as home stagers.
Pamela works from Fresno, California, as “The Color Coach of the Central Valley”. She always considered color and design to be her first loves but she hasn’t always earned her living from her passion. Pamela spent some time immersed in color application and home renovation for several years but she put design on the back burner when she started what would become a 20 year career as an insurance underwriter.
She always knew she’d return to design and after she’d had enough of the insurance industry, Pamela pursued an education in skin care and image consulting. Next, she renewed her training as a paint color specialist bringing her back to her passion and the world of interior redesign. She chose to round out her design and color selection services by adding real estate staging to her clients and in order to do that, she signed up for the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program.
“I wanted to find the very best training so I selected Staging Diva as the jumping off point in my staging education. The training with Debra helped me pull all of my design work together to offer my clients the best in staging, re-design and paint color selection for every stage of their lives.
The Staging Diva Program provided many professional tools that I was able to use to develop both the business side of The Color Coach as well as the staging and design side of my business; everything from marketing ideas to business forms that I could adapt for my own personal needs. I especially appreciated the encouragement to be confident in my talents and skills and to charge fees accordingly.”
