I was honoured to have been selected as one of the RESA Staging Expert Panel – Meet the Pros speakers. One of the first questions that we were asked was ‘What was your biggest obstacle in starting your business?”
The responses from the other expert staging panel speakers – Kathy Nielsen, Linda Barnett, Michelle Minch, Karen Otto, Annie Pinsker-Brown and Craig Schiller were pretty typical of most home stagers starting out in business i.e. getting ‘me’ out of the way; finding clients; figuring out how to charge what I was worth; deciding when to grow my team, etc.
My first obstacle was a little different. I set the training home on FIRE!!! I have kept this story to myself for years and only share it with my students when something happens that shakes them up. I can tell them – this is nothing compared to what I did.
Listen in to this video from the RESA Convention.
So remember, if I can do it you can do it. Only you can live your dream and hey, if a fire didn’t stop me, then I know nothing can stop you!
