The first holiday weekend of the summer is coming up with Independence Day being celebrated by those of you in the United States this coming Sunday. In addition to eating barbeque, relaxing with family and friends and watching the fireworks, I hope you’ll consider the symbolism behind the holiday.
Independence Day marks the anniversary of the American Colonies officially being separated from Great Britain during the American Revolution. How would it feel to celebrate your own Independence Day…from a job you hate, an unsatisfying desk job or an unfulfilled life in general?
Staging Diva Graduate Kelly D’Lima declared her own Independence Day a few years back when she quit her full time job after realizing she was making more in 5 hours of staging than she could make in an entire week’s paycheck at her “j.o.b.”
If you’re eager to start a home staging business but want to learn more about the profession before investing in your training, consider ordering a copy of the newest Staging Diva resource, Ask Staging Diva Live: Volumes 1,2,3. I developed this resource to give you a chance to dip your toe in to test the waters before diving head-first into the field of home staging.
I’ve taken the top 50 most-asked audience questions from the years I’ve been hosting Ask Staging Diva Live events and had my answers and staging business advice professionally edited into three audio files and a 60-page bonus PDF. You’ll learn about a wide range of topics surrounding the industry of home staging including:
- Whether or not you can be successful operating a part-time staging business
- How to deal with skeptical real estate agents
- How much money it takes to start a staging business
- What a day in the life of a stager is like
- Whether or not you should diversify your services
- What to say if a potential client asks how much experience you have
Will this be the month you celebrate your own Independence Day?
