Starting Your Career as an Interior Designer: The Business of Interior Design
Three years ago, almost to the day, I started this blog to create interest in my upcoming book, Starting Your Career as an Interior Designer. At the time it wasn’t quite finished and I knew I would be looking for a publisher. As many of you know all that came about and I published a second book with Allworth Press in June of this year. All in all a very successful use of the internet, social marketing and a desire to share the knowledge I have gathered over the past 38 years. I have enjoyed the comments I’ve received and the response to both of my books. The second book, Interior Design Clients The Designers Guide to Finding and Keeping a Great Clientele, has done very well in sales and was just reviewed by the Library Journal of America. Starting Your Career was named on of the ten best “how-to” books in America in 2009 and I hope The Designers Guide will be as successful with them.
Now, however, is the time to stop this blog. I’ve found writing once a week a challenge and very rewarding. I will continue to teach, mentor and offer my services as a private consultant even though I will no longer be blogging about the business of interior design.
To all of you my very best wishes for your continued and future success. I continue to believe now is the best possible time to get into this business. The numbers can only continue to increase. Get out there and show them how it’s done in a professional and exciting manner.
If, at any time, I can be of help just email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be happy to talk with you about whatever you want.
