However, this hasn’t happened as quickly as you expected because it is not enough to be a fabulously creative designer. Your business skills need to be at the level of excellence as your design skills, and quite unintentionally, you are in your own way.

And making a simple choice now can make a world of difference…

You already have what it takes to become a confident designer, offer your beautiful design gifts to the world, attract high-paying clients, and get paid what you deserve. 

Now, you just need to learn the strategies to make it happen.

The 2020 Summit – Mastering Design Fees and Pricing is where your passion for design combines with the ability to earn what you’re worth to become a reality.

You Can Embrace Your Beautiful Design Gifts and Attract High-Paying Clients…and Become a Confident, Well-Paid Designer

 

The 2020 Summit is for the designer who is ready to stop trading dollars-for-hours and step into leveraging their business. With fee-based design services, you can make a significant difference in the lives of far more people while being well-paid.

And while money is important, this goes way beyond what’s in your bank account.

By attending this training, you will uncover the freedom and fulfillment you’ve always wanted.

 

What past attendees say about our annual Summit experience…

Can You Be the One to Significantly Impact
Your Clients’ Lives While Leaving Your Footprint on the World?

YOU PROBABLY FEEL FRUSTRATED AND OVERWHELMED IF YOU:

  • Attract six-figure design jobs, but something’s still not right, because after all your hard work, you don’t have much to show for it
  • Work on little jobs that eat up tons of your time, don’t produce a profit, and you’re stuck not knowing how to change them into paying jobs
  • Dream of those design jobs where you could use high-end furniture, but you don’t know how to attract those clients
  • Only attract the types of clients who just want the cheapest price to be found on the internet
  • Love the technical and architectural side of the business, do great remodeling jobs, but can’t seem to make a good living doing them
  • Do an excellent job on remodels, your clients are thrilled with the results, but you can’t seem to get to the next phase of interior design or furniture

YOU KNOW THAT SOMETHING IS BLOCKING YOUR PROGRESS BECAUSE YOU:

  • Bill by the hour and it never works well, because you don’t track your time, you forget to send time invoices, and when you do send one you reduce it with some “no charge” items because you think no one would pay you that much
  • Know some designers are receiving design fees of $15K, $30K, $50K, or even $80K and more, but can’t imagine how you could ever say that number to a prospective client and have them actually agree
  • Realize your years of experience allows you to do design work very quickly, but billing dollars-for-hours results in you being paid less than someone with far less experience (Hint: Something’s wrong with this picture!)
  • Would love to be fee-based but you are afraid to do it because no one ever showed you how, and it is too risky to make up stuff and see what happens.

At Summit 2020, you will gain the confidence to make the shift and get the “recipe” for making consistently profitable fee-based offers for design services.

Summit 2020 is Where You Will Learn to Shift Your Inner Beliefs and Discover the Proven Strategies That Will Give You the Freedom, Fulfillment, and Income You Deserve

 

Summit is where you do the “inside” work that allows you to shift into the abundant, confident, well-paid designer you are destined to be.

After spending 3 days with Terri and our IDBA members, you will…

  • Allow yourself to dream bigger than you have ever allowed yourself to dream before
  • Eliminate the obstacles that have been slowing you down or stopping you so that you finally “get out of your own way”
  • Handle all doubts about your value and the value of what you bring to your clients so you can step into your true worth
  • Set boundaries around jobs and clients so that clients respect your opinion and time
  • Become comfortable asking for substantial money for yourself
  • Quickly and confidently make fee-based offers for design services
  • Understand how to price yourself and the product you are selling so that you don’t leave money on the table
    (and your clients will love it!)

The dreams that once seemed out of reach will materialize once you eliminate limiting beliefs and embrace your hidden talents. That is why your attendance at 2020 Summit is vital.

Who is 2020 Summit For?

By attending 2020 Summit, you will be joining the following types of like-minded individuals:

PROS

You have been in design for a number of years and want to re-imagine and maximize the profitability of your business. You realize the way we used to “do design” isn’t what works now, you are leaving money on the table, and you need a simple way to run your business and get paid your worth.

THIRD ACT

You are in the later stages of your design career and want to streamline your business to have more time for self care, travel, and family. You want to have a design business that curates just a few enjoyable and highly profitable jobs every year.

STARS

You already attract plenty of clients and design projects but are overwhelmed with too much to do, frustrated with not creating the income that you should have, and don’t have the time to figure it out. You want to graciously let go of the small stuff and focus on the really good jobs.

LEADERS

You see the possibilities that others don’t. You are committed to playing a bigger game, high-end design for elite clients, with huge visibility backed by a “rock star” team, and substantial bottom-line profit. You are looking for clarity and support to create and expand your powerful big vision.

GAME CHANGERS

You are focused on creating a new awareness of healthy and supportive environments, developing the marketplace demand for sustainable furnishings and finishes, or even new ways of bringing benefits of good design to everyone.

BEGINNERS

You are just starting out on your design entrepreneur path and have realized that being able to design a fabulous room is only one-half of the success formula. You want to start out right, understanding your value, and charge what you are worth.

CREATIVES

You are a painter, florist, furniture maker, window treatment specialist, or other design creative professional who wants to expand your business. You’re ready to play a bigger game and make more money. 

IDBA MEMBERS

What to Expect from Our Virtual Event

Interior Design Business Academy has successfully run a variety of online virtual workshops and trainings for over 6 years.

By joining us for an enjoyable and exciting virtual 2020 Summit, you’ll be able to participate in the following:

  • Virtual Networking
  • Interactive Q & A
  • Mix & Mingle
  • Dancing (yes, it is true!)
  • 1:1 virtual conversations
  • Easy-to-use technology
  • Breakout sessions
  • Downloadable exercises & handouts
  • Online chat
  • Presentation content

Our goal for your virtual experience:

100% engagement online (with your heart) as if we were all together in the same room.

To make this year’s virtual event a success, we took a deep dive into what makes our in-person events so powerful and amazing. We’re taking that same energy and putting all those aspects into our 2020 Summit. That ensures you won’t miss a thing, and you’ll still be able to enjoy the experience of connection and closeness that’s prevalent for our live events! 

We are still committed to giving you the same valuable content you won’t find anywhere else, including worksheets, paired sharing, Q & A and discussion times, as well as incredible opportunities for you to connect with other attendees for support and encouragement. 

Why We’re Ensuring the Best Possible Virtual Experience

  • Now, more than ever, we are living in a society that is increasingly isolated and shies away from full engagement, especially online.
  • It’s our natural instinct as humans to want to connect with others, be seen and heard for who we are, and feel significant, even loved.
  • We have found that participating and leaning online is done best when we don’t hide our true selves.
  • All of us learn better and are capable of more when we feel connected to others, share within a community, and feel supported by others.
  • We can still discover a way to bond online by following a particular protocol that is quickly becoming “The IDBA Way” of Conscious Engagement Online.

How You Can Fully Engage and Participate Virtually at Our 2020 Summit 

Our ultimate goal is to provide a Sacred Space for all attendees that matches every aspect of the magic created when we meet together in person.

While an online environment makes it very easy to stand back and hide behind our monitors with the camera turned off, it’s still essential for us to create a deep connection for this environment…

To make this a success, we are dedicated to having all participants show up as professionals, who are personally responsible for being engaged and conscious when interacting with our community during this virtual experience.

We will provide our Interior Design Business Academy Conscious Engagement Online Handbook to help you prepare ahead of time

Terri can’t wait to provide everyone with an incredible virtual experience (as she is really good at doing!) She intends for 2020 Summit to be (almost) as good as if all attendees were in the room sitting next to each other!

What else should I know about Summit?

Even though the 2020 Summit will be held virtually, be prepared to move around. Not only will you be actively engaging with other participants, but you will also need to be ready to dance!

We want to keep this event as intimate as possible, so we’re limiting attendance to only 100 spots. Many of these spots will be taken by our current IDBA students, so be sure to grab a spot before they fill up!

What if I purchase a ticket and find out I am unable to attend?

While we prefer you to attend and participate with other attendees, you can watch and listen to the recordings once the event has ended if you’ve purchased Enhanced Access to 2020 Summit.

If you have purchased General Admission, you will not have access to the recordings after the event is over.

There will be plenty of opportunities for you to engage and interact, including Q & A and discussion times, online chat, virtual networking with like-minded designers and professionals, and even dancing!

Why It’s Essential for You to Attend 2020 Summit

I am going to make two big statements.

After 10 years of mentoring, teaching, and guiding design professionals, I am even more certain that …

Your results and success as an interior designer are a direct and irrefutable reflection of your inner beliefs.

Your income and the level of client and design jobs you attract is a direct reflection of what you believe will (and expect to) happen…

I am not kidding.

In fact, I would lay down my reputation on it.

Here’s what you need to know…

Your EGO is going to come up with a ton of reasons for you to NOT attend…

Your family. Your clients, jobs, the installs.  

The timing.

These very rational excuses are just your ego doing everything it can to keep you in the same place you are now and maintain the status quo. That’s it’s job.

But, what you also need to know is that the only way you breakthrough is to COMMIT to doing whatever it takes to achieve the life, clients, and jobs you want.

It is easy to say, “I am not ready,” or “I’m gonna figure this out on my own,” or “I’m not sure if this is exactly right for me.” It’s your ego’s way of bargaining with your future and saying, “Oh, I will do it next time.”

The resistance you are experiencing to join us in November is the exact EVIDENCE telling you this NOW is YOUR time to breakthrough and attend.
