Episode 66: 5 Money Leaks

Is your business leaking money?

There are a few common mistakes I see designers making that are causing them to lose money without even realizing they’re doing it. If you can learn how to avoid these mistakes, you’ll also learn how to avoid losing money. In this episode of the Interior Design Business podcast, I’m sharing five potential money leaks in your design business. 

Tune in to find out if you’re making any of these mistakes and what to do about it. The good news is that all of the leaks are fixable, so if you’re doing any of these things right now, it’s not too late to stop and start saving yourself money.
