Remember that book by the incomparable Dr. Seuss? When someone decides to "choose themselves" and steps into the staging and design industry through the HSR Certification Training it's AMAZING where their business can take them! I was reminded of that Dr. Seuss book when I read about the story below.
Here's a recent member success story about staging Airbnbs...
Alicia Carter, a professional home stager based in Albuquerque, NM recently posted in our private Stagers Connect Group:
I completed the HSR Certification process in February and have been doing my BEST to get out and get some business going! Audra suggests posting when we get our HSR Certificate on Facebook, so I did that and high school friend reached out about a possible partnership.
I couldn't be more grateful. Not only did something MAJOR come from him reaching out; I have some residual income built into this space...
It was vacant and I completely designed and staged the entire space. Now I am partnering with him to manage the space and will receive a cut of the profits each month. This will be an Airbnb.
But it gets better...there are 2 other units just as stunning in the same "home" and I'll be doing the same with those. Residual income!!
And the connections that are coming from this one opportunity are INCREDIBLE!! The owner of this space has a four-plex that I'll be staging and managing for a monthly income...I just couldn't have imagined a better arrangement...not in one million years!
First stage, done! If you're new at this, don't ignore the little things that come along that don't seem like they'll be much. I'm learning that striving is never good...go where the energy and movement are and amazing things happen!
Oh...and Audra...I adore you and I wish I could hug you and look you in the eye and tell you what an answer to prayer you are. Thank you!
How cool is that story only 3 months after finishing her training...woot! What's even cooler is the many encouraging responses she got from our amazingly supportive Stagers Connect Facebook Group!
So...Congratulations! Today is your day. You're off to Great Places! You're off and away! Out there things can happen and frequently do to people as brainy and footsy as you.:-)
And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)
Kid, you'll move mountains! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So...get on your way!
