Even if you never need your nest egg, just knowing it’s there will give you peace of mind.
You never know what curve balls life will throw your way, so you have to be prepared. It’s never pleasant to think about, but you can’t predict when your family might face a job loss, significant home repairs or escalating medical expenses.
One way to build up this nest egg is to start earning money on the side as a home stager while you still have another job.
You can put another $500 in your pocket just doing a home staging consultation on the weekend.
Some weeks you may have nothing coming in. And at other times, especially during the busiest months of the real estate season, you may have 2 or 3.
Even if you only averaged one per month, that’s an additional $6,000 per year.
One of our graduates, Leah Fritz of Perfect Place Home Staging was able to renovate her kitchen with what she earned as a home stager.
Home staging is a very flexible career.
It’s always within your control how many clients you want to see at any given time, because you book your clients around whatever else you have going on in your life.
That’s why we’ve had Staging Diva Grads who built their business while having full time jobs in demanding fields like nursing, and another, Laura Kakoschke who managed to grow a home staging business while home schooling her kids.
