You wanted to become a home stager ever since you first heard of the industry on HGTV. You knew it was the perfect career for you because of your natural design talent and entrepreneurial drive. You decided six months ago to dive in and start a home staging business. You felt like you had chosen the perfect life path and you were so happy you could hardly believe it.
Now, six months later, you’re scared.
The phone hasn’t been ringing like you thought it would be, even though you invested in a membership to the Chamber of Commerce and created and mailed an expensive flyer to all of the real estate offices in your community.
To tell the truth, you still haven’t even done a project for a client you weren’t related to.
Your spouse is telling you to cut your losses and find a job. You’ve spent more than you’ve made. Now you believe you don’t have enough money to take any courses to help you become successful or do any real marketing because you have no projects coming in.
With no support at home and no phones ringing, you think it’s time to give up on your dream.
With six months and no income, what do you do? Please leave your answer by commenting below. (Successful home stagers, I hope you’ll all chime in here!)
