    Hi Chelsea

    just came across your video series and a BIG THANK YOU for doing this.

    I have dreamt for 15 years about creating beautiful, functional spaces. So last year I finally put some money on it and started a distance learning interior design course, which I am about to finish. I am confident in my intuition to come up with good designs. I am naturally organised and practical. I have a good understanding of colour and how they interact. What I most struggle with, are the practical aspects. Because I have no experience of the design industry, I get stuck with the same questions again and again. One particularly releveant to this video is how you find your 'team': those contractors, suppliers, IT experts etc. to take on the things I am not good at (and probably never will be). So, when I contacted some tile and fabric suppliers, they rightly said: Well, when you start bringing me a number of order (5-10), then – and only then – will I start to consider you a professional and talk to you about a trade account, discount, sample service and so on. As I am starting out, I don't have those numbers of clients and projects. How did you overcome this when you first started out? How did you find 'your' Chris? The perfect contractor? Do you have a kind of interview technique to find the right person, did you get a recommendation…? How did you make sure you had somebody you could trust? After all, I'd be mortified if I send a painter or carpet fitter to a client's house and they do a bad job. But without knowing any contractors, I don't know how to assess who's good and who isn't. Mostly, where I am, at the very start, still working the day job 8-6 and doing the client visits on a weekend and the work during evenings, I don't have anything to offer in return to suppliers or contractors and find they don't see why they should connect with me. Any tips?

    Thank you so much for all this motivational and useful information. I estudied interior design in Argentina 5 years ago and never finished my degree. However, I've always known it's my passion. Currently, I have had a few clients in decorating their homes rental properties and I have found many times the lack of confidence. I've learned inmensly about my self and how to run the business aspect of design from these past experiences. But, I still have lots of questions. Tomorrow I am seeing a client for designing a courtyard and public restrooms. I have seeked assistance from a lawyer for a contract of agreement and have realized that there is a lot of legal terms that some what prevent me from starting.

     To start my business I need several things. For now I build my team and clientel, I still ask my self how to professionally approach my client with a contract of agreement.  What are the first steps before I sell my ideas? If just starting out as a designer how much do I charge as a percentage for a non-refundablable fee?  

    Thank you,

    Thankyou for this tutorial, I am considering starting a Diploma in Interior Design (with a view to start my own business Staging Homes for Real Estate & Sales) and found this very motivational. You are inspirational and I hope I can achieve half of what you have in the next few years! It is very daunting to start a new career and you have provided a clear vision in relation to what is required. 🙂
