About 3 years ago when I decided to take my visual merchandising expertise and switch gears to focus on interior design, I honestly had no idea how that would look. I began by working with a furniture showroom & after a whirlwind of events, ultimately decided to launch my own business. After a year of working with different e-design platforms, I discovered what kind of designer I wanted to be and more importantly, what kind of entrepreneur I wanted to be.
So here I am hitting the reset the button, focusing on virtual styling and building the subscription service, all while completing my masters degree. My plate runneth over! The hardest lessons I've had to learn while wearing all these hats have been on the more administrative/operational side of things. I remember getting my first client outside of being an independent contractor and wondering how the heck do I manage all this information?! In my head, I knew how I'd want this to play out, but here I am, business license, website, trade memberships, and all that jazz, yet still foggy on how I was going to accept payments or send swatches or upload designs; basically all the stuff that would ultimately enhance (or destroy) the customer experience, I couldn't decide on.
Fast forward to today, and I think I've got this. If you're any kind of entrepreneur or just wondered, "How the heck does she do it?!" here's a peak behind the scenes that is my life as an entrepreneur, student, and mom...
First we drink the coffee. Then we do the things.
"All I need today is a little bit of coffee and a whole lot of Jesus"
Wayfair, you've got just what I need. Everything for my home, you've got it for me...
