Sarah Allen, Interior Designer

“Wow! My business has TRANSFORMED in one year. I went from a one-woman show doing one-room designs and selling blocks of time for $150/hr to landing a $95K fee project with a dream architect. I’m in so much shock with what I’ve achieved. Now we are booking out and getting deposits to hold spots in our calendar, I’ve hired my first employee and have another great consultant on the team. All while becoming a mom for the first time!”

The truth is, you’re a savvy, talented interior designer and it’s time you were paid like one

It’s time to be unapologetic about what you charge and start standing behind your value as a designer.

Victoria Sheffield, Design Consultant

"I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed the recent Summit! I laughed and cried as we delved deep into the psychology of issues that hold us back from success. Here’s the big news; I went on consultation 2 days after Summit. The potential client assumed $100k for the budget. In the next moments, I calculated my fee based on my estimated budget for construction. I started by letting her know that I didn’t want her to encounter any surprises and I let her know that my fee would be $20K. Within 4 hours she contacted me to move forward!"

Position yourself as an industry leader, gain major publishing opportunities, and mastermind with other high-level design entrepreneurs so you’re constantly inspired to grow.

Dana Bass, Interior Designer

“I thought I had a pretty good business starting with IDBA. I would set a goal of making $100K for the year and finish at around $80K, that’s pretty good! Then I joined the Structure program, with Terri’s help I set a goal for myself of $250K, worked on changing my mindset, focused on what I wanted and ended the year with a $260,000 paycheck! Spectacular!”

“I work so much less and am not stressed out over every second of my day being efficient due to the headache of documenting each hour so I can be sure to be paid. I have signed 4 new contracts in the past month, including a fee of 20K for new construction, and today a kitchen remodel for a fee of $14,500. Many thanks on all of your great guidance, insight and big brain.”
