Not everyone can afford to take 3 to 5 days out of their real life to devote to a home staging seminar, especially when hotel and travel are also involved.
There’s also the matter of who you’ll be trained by. There’s that old saying, “those who can do it, do; and those who can’t teach.”
I know I can’t take time out to travel to teach courses, because I operate a home staging business, Six Elements Inc. It’s important to me to continue staging homes, because I love staging and because I want to always have fresh examples to bring into my courses. Oh yeah, and the money in staging homes is pretty great too!
There’s no point trying to teach someone what works in the “real world” if you’re not operating there.
I can only tell my students with confidence how they can build a successful home staging business because I’ve actually built one and I continue to sustain it.
The Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program lets you learn from home at your own convenience
When you sign up for the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program you are given two options:
1. Take the five courses as live “TeleClasses.”
2. Order recordings of past live TeleClasses.
What’s a Staging Diva Teleclass?
A live TeleClass is like a conference call. It’s done by phone at a pre-arranged date and time. I take a maximum of 15 students and it’s an interactive session. I make a presentation from the course notes that are emailed to you in advance and bring in lots of current examples from my staging projects, client interaction, etc. There are questions and answers throughout the time we’re on the phone. You don’t need to be on the Internet to participate since you’ll be referring to printed notes.
What are the recordings?
When you order recordings of past TeleClasses, you’re not on the phone live with me, but you’re still hearing all the questions and answers that were shared in the live TeleClasses. I’ve handpicked which courses I’ve made available as recordings because they have the best student questions. You still get all the same course notes. The recordings are downloadable onto your computer so you can listen to them as often as you like and even transfer them to your iPod or other mp3 player if you have one.
What if I order course recordings and I want to ask questions?
When you press the “buy now” button on the order page, it will invite you to add the Staging Diva Accelerator Upgrade. This gives you two full hours of coaching with me, which you can use at any point over 6 months and split into shorter sessions if you like.
You can use your private business coaching time with me to ask anything you like about the business in general or your staging business in particular. Here are some examples:
- Laurie got help quoting staging for a $3 million apartment.
- Erin learned how to get paid when the agent was her contact and the homeowner (who was paying) lived in a different state.
- Lori got a new name for her home staging company that allowed her to also get the “.com” domain.
- Karen sent digital photos from her first project. It was a complicated assignment and some of the rooms were especially challenging, we worked through them together.
- Caroline got help with her website and learned the mistakes her designer made that would have made it difficult for search engines to find her.
With the Business Accelerator option you’ll be inspired and look at your business in a new way. Here’s what Laura Horrell said after one of our coaching sessions:
“It was my lucky day when I found your site— a turning point in my business. The clarity of your comments during our home staging business coaching session was so refreshing! You are so marketing minded and focused; you made me realize that I can think bigger than I have been. Now it’s time to really take off in my home staging business. Thanks!”
Thinking bigger is what I’m all about and comments like Laura’s keep me inspired to keep doing what I’m doing!
