Most of us think interior designers have the best job in the world. It is wonderful, but being in business for yourself isn’t fun all day, everyday. I love this video a colleague shared with me from YouTube.
This makes me laugh and cringe because of it’s truth. Most people are envious of a designer’s job, but what they fail to realize is how much business accumen goes into running your own business successfully- even when it is creative in nature.
To run a successful and profitable business, I have to be as on top of my game in operations and marketing as I am in keeping up with the hottest colors and trends in the design world.
I realize not everyone is suited to run their own business. I am thankful and greatful everyday that my life experiences and priceless friends and colleagues have taught me lessons that have allowed my business to flourish as an interior designer in Portland
I appreciate each of you that continue to help me in my interior design business. Yes. It is a wild, challenging ride and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
