I wholeheartedly encourage anyone to invest in this program. I took the Staging Diva courses because, while I was confident in my design talent, I had absolutely no business sense. None. Zero! And that had kept me from starting any business my entire adult life.
Now, at 45 years of age, I finally feel like I can make this happen.
Debra is always there to answer my questions and there is also a huge, supportive Staging Diva Network of home stagers (and soon-to-be stagers) who are ready to assist, and empathize along with you!— Melissa Ross (CO)*Modest Muse Home Staging & Interior Redesign
“I had a lot of fear holding me back from pursuing what I really wanted to do. The Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program gave me the confidence to move forward.
The behind-the-scenes of how home staging works was a mystery to me, and I felt that Debra Gould’s transparency in the program was open and honest.
I needed a mentor to help me figure out the inner workings of the business from pricing to marketing and that’s exactly what Debra delivered.”— Amy Spencer (SC)*Amy Spencer Interiors
“The Staging Diva Training Program transformed my way of thinking about the business of home staging. I was formerly trained by two other 3-day staging programs. In fact, I was even a teacher for one of them!
But the staging pricing model was wrong in those other programs. It kept me stuck, trudging up a difficult hill wondering why I wasn’t making real money as a home stager.
It wasn’t until Debra Gould explained home staging consulting and billing correctly, that I was able to shift into higher home staging income levels.”— Jill Gargus-Turgeon (AB)*Simply Irresistible Interiors Inc.
“The Staging Diva Program saved me hours of time and frustration by providing a simple, no-nonsense process to follow. I wanted to know what works and what doesn’t from someone who has been there so that I could set up quickly and simply without reinventing the wheel. These expectations were exceeded.
Debra taught me how to build the business and attract the clients that I want, while charging what I’m worth. All with a hefty dose of motivation and ‘go girl’ attitude.
I’m totally ready to help people sell their homes and get on with their lives.”— Imogen Brown (AU)*Home Staging Brisbane
“At the age of 53 I was really soul searching and found Staging Diva and began reading how you can start your own business.
The other courses I looked into emphasized that they provide ‘home staging certification’ and I found out from Debra that there is no such requirement and does not officially exist. I appreciated her honesty!
The Staging Diva Program has inspired me to change my life and pursue a career that will be fulfilling emotionally and financially. The journey to become a home stager has brought new purpose and meaning to my life.
Debra’s emails continue to encourage me to keep going when I question if I can really do this. For the first time in my life I have a direction, purpose and a goal to reach for!”— Kim Hart (MA)*Hartridge Home Staging
“The only money I SPENT to start my successful staging business of 5 years was on the complete Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program back at the beginning.
I used the marketing methods Debra teaches to get my first staging projects (which more than paid for my training).
From those projects I took great pictures and was off and running from referrals. So, my experience has been to put a lot of effort into my business, rather than money.”— Patricia Ebrahimi (MD)*Show Smart Home Staging
“I had no idea when I sold my home that I was actually staging it! After selling the first day over asking, and then helping friends decorate their homes to sell, I realized I could have a home staging career.
But I didn’t know how to make that happen. I needed to get serious and learn as much about staging as possible. That’s where the Staging Diva Program came into play.
Staging Diva is everything I could’ve hoped for and more. It showed me the way to get paid for something I’ve always had a passion for. I’m beyond excited! Thank you Debra for helping me turn my talents into such a great home staging career.”— Carrie McCampbell (WA)*Carrie McCampbell Design
“I just got paid $9,500 for a redesign project. Debra it is unbelievable, I never thought I could get paid this much for decorating. I was just all smiles the whole day because I feel like I got paid to play!
And while choosing furniture for my current project, I met a different couple in the store and helped them choose the right artwork and lamps for their place. It turns out they just renovated and because they liked the ideas I shared in the store, they want me to do their whole house! Isn’t that amazing?!
Honestly, the $1300 I spent for the Staging Diva Program is by far the best purchase ever. I am still in shock with the turn of events with my new company and so excited for more things to come!”— Red Barrinuevo (ON)*ReDesign4More
“I finally decided to turn my creative hobby into a home staging business. After researching various programs, Staging Diva struck me as a comprehensive course that would set me on my way to the career of my dreams.
After taking this program, I knew everything I needed to know to start my staging business, including how to market and price my services.
I was apprehensive about starting my own business for over a decade, but Staging Diva walked me through it step by step.
Now I am confident in what I’m doing and I wish I had started sooner! I’m already seeing the benefits of implementing what I learned.”— Jennifer Westbrook (MD)*Main Stage Home Staging & Organizing, LLC
“Once I decided home staging was for me, I was terrified of starting my own business. Staging Diva Training gave me the confidence to do what I love, and contribute to our income after being out of the work force for 15 years.
Debra gave me the information I needed to get over my fear of failure, charge what I’m worth, and get out there and start my home staging business!”— Kelli Hughes (TX)*ReAbode Home Staging and Redesign
“I ordered the mailed-to-your-door version of the Staging Diva Home Staging Training Program.
I’ve been listening to the course CDs while driving and I find when I reach my destination I don’t want to get out of the car! So much to learn, but I feel getting to listen while on the road is a good way to prime me for my home studies.
Many thanks for the Staging Diva Program, I look forward to going through each step!”— Mary Zalewski (OH)*Tastefully Staged
“The Staging Diva Training Program helped so much with setting up my business and having the confidence to think like a home stager. I can finally follow my dream of having a creative career that I look forward to every day.
I’m almost 63, so it’s never too late to start! I quit my full-time job and now I have the freedom to schedule my time for once in my life. I am finally doing what I love and getting paid for it.”— Robin Weflen (PA)*Round Table Home Staging
“I spent months researching staging courses and almost took a very expensive course from a high-profile provider.
I was confident in my ability to stage as I had successfully done several homes for friends. What I really needed to learn was how to run a profitable staging business. That’s when I searched for business training and found Staging Diva instead.
Debra has a simple, logical, and effective business model. From my first paying job, I had all the information I needed to come across as an experienced pro. I’ve used her business model for over 7 years with great success.”— Susan Atwell (NY)*AtWell Staged Home
“I’ve made more money working part time in 10 months as a stager than I used to make all year in my full time job as a manager.
Plus I can home school my boys in the mornings and work my staging business in the afternoons. I work my own hours, set my schedule and my sons get a first-hand look at running a business.
I hope that hearing about the courage I found to follow my dream will inspire them to follow theirs, and to know that anything is possible!”— Laura Kakoschke (AB)*Hunter Lake Homes
“The Staging Diva Program is very well organized and explains in the most straightforward terms how to set up your business, maintain and grow it.
By the time I was on Course 3, I had already completed three home staging jobs which more than paid for all the training!
Debra’s step-by-step process allowed me to start a 2nd career doing something I probably should have been doing all along!”— Rob Reinhart (CA)*Make It-Home
