Episode 73: Starting a Design Business

Starting a Design Business

Have you been wondering how to start a design business? Maybe you’ve even started already but you’re not sure what to do next. 

I’m bringing back one of the most popular episodes of the Interior Design Business Podcast all about starting a design business. If you’ve been scouring the internet for information about starting your own design business, you’ve made it to the right place. 

In this episode, I’m taking you through a list of everything you need to get set up to start your business. From networking and building a team to setting up software and marketing, I’ve got you covered. 

If you’ve already started your business, think of this episode as a checklist for you to go through, and if you haven’t, you can use this episode as a framework to move forward with.

I’m so excited for you to start this journey, and I can’t wait to see where it takes you!

Topics We Cover in This Episode: 

  • Everything you need to know to start a design business
  • What you need to learn in the early days 
  • Why you need to be talking to people about your design business
  • Choosing a name for your business
  • How to make important connections 
  • Who you need on your team 
  • Setting up and organizing your office 
  • Getting familiar with and keeping track of your numbers 
  • Software and systems you need to have in place 
  • Why marketing is so important
  • How to network effectively 

Please know that you can’t do all of these things upfront and then get started. There are some things that you need to do upfront, but other things take time to establish and you can work on them as your business grows; we call that flying the plane as you build it! A thriving design business doesn’t emerge overnight, it takes time and hard work, but I promise it’s worth it.
