Welcome to the very first episode of ‘So You Want to be an Interior designer’.
My aim for the show is really to teach you the thrills, reveal the spills and show you can create an Interior Design career that fits your lifestyle
In today’s episode, I’m asking you the critical question-Is a design career right for you and how you live? There are a number of questions you want to ask yourself before you commit your time, money and blood, sweat and tears to this industry. There can be high highs, and sometimes, well a few lows. Ultimately, I believe the good outweighs the bad, so strap yourself in and let’s get talking about your fabulous Interior Design aspirations!
In this episode, I focus on the three essentials to consider before you make your passion a reality. There is no ‘one size fits all’ and I want to let you know that you can be happy designing your life with as little or as much design as you can handle! I certainly have!
Here’s a glance at this episode…
Question 1:Are you happy being 20% creative, and 80% business driven?
· Business acumen trumps talent! I rarely get complex with numbers, but ths percentage split is very accurate so let’s discuss in more detail.
Question 2: Are you prepared to make a living in other ways, when the road gets tough?
· Projects can and do slow down at time. No matter what some may tell you. I discuss ideas that can bring additional income during famine, as well as during feast.
Question 3: Do you Love it? Or should you leave it??
· Are you trying it on for size, or diving in because you don’t want to die ignoring your passion? I discuss with you what you need to make this work long term. Spoiler alert! It’s something to do with your heart.
