Growth and Structure Program

Education Supported by Coaching

Take the Path Towards Successfully Marketing Your Business, More High-Paying,
Affluent Clients, and Consistently Earning $10k or More a Month!

Is it Time to Take Your Business Up a Few Notches?

You’re already a great designer.

Your clients are ecstatic to work with you.

And you love what you do.

But is something missing?


Do You Wish You Could Earn More Without Having to Work So Much, But You’re Too Busy to Figure It Out?

Are you wondering how to:

  • Stop working 60+ hours a week and actually take time for yourself


  • Have 5-figure months or 6-figure years


  • Attract more high-end clients


  • Experience more success without working more hours


If you nodded yes to one or more of the statements above, then it’s time to take a different path.

Instead of going for a typical cookie-cutter coaching program, you can work with an experienced Interior Designer who will share the path she took to build her own multi 7-figure design firm. You can follow proven “recipes” for taking those same essential steps to take your business to new heights.

At Interior Design Business Academy, we strive to help you reach your fullest potential.

All too often, we find that designers are out there running their businesses and working with their clients, but there’s one problem.

They’re too busy to grow and make the powerful changes that will propel them to even greater success.

Our powerful online and live education programs, supported by  personal coaching, can help you with:

  • Getting ideal clients with real budgets who pay you what you’re worth
  • Putting an end to working until the midnight hour (or later!) 
  • Removing the overwhelm and frustration of not having enough time to grow your business
  • Implementing plans and systems to help you get organized and run your business more smoothly

And much more!

You’ve always wanted more financial abundance, freedom, creativity, higher quality of life, to feel more confident, and experience more joy, meaning and fulfillment in life.

Whatever frustration you’re experiencing, we at Interior Design Business Academy know you don’t want to be in the same place a year from now. We can help make that your reality.

Growth Program

Who is the Growth Program for?

The Growth Program is for those designers who want to focus on signing up high-paying clients and start earning $10k or more a month. Maybe you’ve already got clients, but you’re only earning $2k a month. Your business isn’t growing as fast as you’d like even though you’re working harder than you ever have before. You want to have high-paying clients but you need help to get there.

The Growth Program shows you how to do that and more! We educate you on marketing, confidently getting a budget from a client, calling out a design fee, and closing the sale so that you can attract ideal clients and start ramping up your income to meet your goals.
