Start & Run a Home Staging Business ready to preorder!

A year ago almost to this day, I signed a contract with Self Counsel Press to write a book on home staging for their Start & Run a Business series. Today I handed over the final galley proofs and now it is in their hands. It is due for publication February 2011. It was a dream on my ‘Bucket List’ and now that I have achieved it, I already have another book in mind!

My intention with the book is that existing home stagers, newbies and want-to-be stagers will find some business strategies or ideas in the book that will propel them forward on their road to success. If they are off track, I hope the book gets them back on track!

Over 10 years ago I took a big leap of faith and left a ‘secure’ corporate job and started out part time decorating, doing redesign and staging. I have truly loved doing the work. Being an entrepreneur is not for the faint of heart. It takes persistence, focus, action and a strong positive belief system that you can be successful. It can be a rocky road, with detours along the way and even speed bumps to stop the idea avalanche. Yet everything that has happened in my business – the good and the challenges has all made me stronger and I have immense faith in who I am.

For those of you who are going to buy my book I THANK YOU in advance. If you find yourself in a position where you know you can fast track with me as your coach and mentor, I look forward to serving you in that capacity. You can find me at

Colleen McClure
Proud owner of PRES Staging® and expert home stager. I naturally started drawing interiors when I was very young. I see finished projects completed in my minds-eye as the client explains to me how they would love to see their space created. I then can draw sketches quickly to produce this vision right then and there with the client. My creative talents led me to full time work as a career counsellor working with people, designing workshops, facilitating groups when the economy did not support the luxury of home improvements. My many talents in this field was a happy marriage to own PRES the Professional Real Estate Staging Centre. Helping others start and run their own home décor businesses for redesign and staging, learning design principals and building confidence brings me great joy and passion. Working with people and helping them make confident decisions comes easy to me.
