Years ago when PRES first opened it’s doors to offer our 5 Day Signature Certified Home Staging and Redesign course most of the students were between the ages of 30 – 45. Interestingly enough over the years we are finding that many women from 50 – 65 are quitting or retiring from their boring, stale jobs to do something more creative. And, in almost all cases home staging and decorating are something that they have been doing their entire life, get oodles of compliments about it, and have finally given themselves permission to do something about it! While many do take the PRES home staging and redesign course, many take other online courses and then just STOP because they are unsure of how to really get the business going.
This is a recent testimonial from a women in her 60s who hired Dana J. Smithers the PRES Business Success Coach to help get her business off the ground. Even though she took another online staging course she felt she didn’t know enough to really confidently put herself out there. She had also signed up for a ‘Law of Attraction’ course that Dana teaches and that helped her get focused on who she wanted as an ideal client and what her ideal ‘part time business’ would look like. She had the right mindset after that!
“My last call with Dana was bittersweet. “Bitter” because I knew this was the end of our three month coaching call program and “sweet” because with a job well done by Dana, I have a confidence that is helping me move on to achieve my dream of being a professional home stager. By listening and asking key questions, Dana would put a plan of action together each call that helped me to stay focused and build my business with a firm foundation. Insightful advice, suggestions and wisdom given by Dana always helped me to see that all things are possible if one is willing to apply themselves to the task at hand. Dr. Seuss said, “You’re off to great places, today is your day. Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way!” I know I can be on my way thanks to Dana. Jean – Shatalow Home Staging.”
And even though Jean has work to do on her marketing materials like her website and getting more active in social media – she is taking one step at a time to get there! Congratulations Jean and we see huge success awaiting you!
