If you’re a busy mother searching for a business start up that offers the flexibility you need, a career in home staging would be perfect for you.
Home staging is so flexible that even if you have young children, you can still build a staging business during the evenings and weekends, or whatever fits your particular schedule.
The inherent flexibility of a home staging business, which stems from the fact that you are booking your client appointments around the other demands on your time, makes this a very appealing career for moms.
Staging Diva Graduate Laura Kakoschke of Hunter Lake Home Staging and Design saw outstanding success in her first year in business.
This creative and dedicated 39-year-old mother continues to home school her three young children while building her home staging business. Even though she only works her staging business in the afternoons, Laura made more money working part-time as a stager in her first year of business than she earned working full-time for the government as a contract manager.
Of her success, Laura says, “I can work my own hours, set my schedule, be at home to teach (home school) in the mornings and work my staging business in the afternoons. My three boys get a firsthand look at running a business. I hope that the courage I found to follow my dream will inspire them to follow theirs, and to know that anything is possible.”
Proving how much home sellers need home staging in a slow real estate market, one of Laura’s many projects in her first year of business included a house that had sat on the market for four months with lots of showings and no offers. Laura staged it before an open house, and the home sold three days later!
