Not everyone who has the desire to start a home staging business has the luxury of quitting their full time job to do so. Some people enjoy their day jobs but feel they’d like to use a staging business as a sort of creative outlet while they continue to work full time.
The good news is, it’s very possible to have a successful part-time home staging business that operates alongside a full time job and Staging Diva Graduates are proving it.
Amuradha Rathore of Wisconsin had always wanted to start her own business but she didn’t know where to start. A public relations consultant working full time as a banker, she loved her career but had a constant nagging feeling of creative discontent. However, with the uncertainty of job security and the poor economy she was reluctant to give up her job to start a business.
One day, Amuradha came across StagingDiva.com and discovered that starting a home staging business was exactly what she needed to do considering she’d been helping family and friends decorate their homes for years and she was already a qualified consultant.
Amuradha combined her talent and flair for decorating with her education, experience and what she learned in the Saging Diva Program to start her home staging business, Nine Dimensions. Not only does her home staging business serve as a financial safety net but she also gets a tremendous sense of creative freedom from it which makes her enjoy her full time job even more.
She writes, “As of now, I am working full time, raising my family and running my own business and it’s possible because I love my job, my business is my hobby and my family keeps me going. Home staging has helped me turn my passion and talent for decorating into a real business and Staging Diva, Debra Gould made it happen.”
Remember, it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. You can keep your job and work at your home staging business on the side and have a very satisfying life!
