A Message To You From
Terri Taylor, ASID, IDS, NCIDQ

I want to point out a common trait we share as designers – a passion for creating beauty and changing lives for the better through comfort, safety, and function.

This passion (and power) is what I call HEART FIRE.

HEART FIRE is high vibration energy that creates opportunities larger than you’ve ever imagined possible.

At Summit 2019, Mastering Your Mindset you’ll identify with your true purpose on earth to create environments that change lives for the better.

In order to do so without limitation, you need to recognize your own HEART FIRE, inner beliefs, and the fears holding you back from the impact you’re destined to make on the world.

When you can freely share your creative gifts, the universe responds by giving you abundance, fulfillment, contribution, wellbeing, connectedness and joy in all areas of life.

I’m going to share with you the exact process to increase your awareness, access your hidden intelligence, eliminate old stories and blocks, raise your consciousness, and step into the highest and best version of yourself, so you can finally, once and for all, have the freedom and the lifestyle you deserve.

Shaping the world according to your thoughts, knowing the right decisions to make and instantly feeling your truth isn’t for a select few on this earth – it’s for you too!

Interior designers from all over the globe come to Summit in order to live the Summit experience… walking in one person and leaving totally transformed.

If mindset, community, awareness, and transformation speak to you – follow your instinct in getting your ticket TODAY and join me at Summit!

Because if you’re ready to take your business to the next level, I want that for you too and I’m here to help make it your reality.

So that’s what Design Biz Summit is all about.

Together we’re going to bring clarity of fine-tuned business strategies and mindset, and mix it with a supportive, encouraging,
and authentic group of designers to accomplish your ultimate greatness.
The greatest changes, the greatest shifts, and the greatest friendships happen when we’re together at Summit.

Summit is like no other – it’s about community, connection, and I hope you’ll join me and this group of heart-centered designers for a weekend of lasting transformation.
