Design Business 101

Almost weekly, I have someone reach out to me and share their aspirations to make a living doing interior design. 

There are so many ways to make a career in the design industry, and I am no expert by any means, so each request is so flattering to me! I'm humbled that people view me as a source for knowledge and I do my best to give as much insight as I can during those conversations. I've written about my journey and how you can become an interior designer too. But I realized that some people need more than a blog post or a quick conversation and I totally understand! I'm excited to partner with The ACE Center this fall to provide design-related workshops to enthusiasts and aspiring professionals in the Raleigh area. The first of these workshops is on September 18th at 10 am and I'm calling it Design Business 101
