If you missed my "How to Make 2019 Awesome" webinar last week, then you didn't get to read an inspiring story I shared about a Minneapolis home stager who pursued her dream, this time last year. Here is Laura's story, as well as her recent staging photos...go Laura!
EXACTLY a year ago, Laura Bohn, a Minneapolis home stager took the plunge into staging...she was exactly where YOU may be and here's her story and design work to inspire you...
I worked as a Radiology Technician for 3 years with Twin Cities Orthopedics until I took the plunge to pursue my dream of owning a business in design...
It was actually my sister that gave me the idea of home staging. She went to a tent show at the Minneapolis Convention Center and ran into a lady that was a home stager. She went through the HSR training and raved about it, so my sister happened to get all of her personal information for me to reach out. She thought very highly of HSR and told me to really consider it if I wanted a career change.
It wasn't a tough decision for me to make. It all felt right...
I was very unhappy in Radiology and knew it wasn't my forever career. I was sick of working for someone, I wanted to work for myself and build an empire of a company while I was at it. I completed most of the HSR training while I was still working in Radiology, but on January 12th, 2018 I said to myself enough is enough and quit my day job to pursue my dream full-time...
It was the best decision I have EVER made!
Looking back, it's funny how I think I learned more about business in the HSR training than I did in my 4-year Bachelor's Degree in Business Management.
They didn't teach me the processes it takes to start your own business, such as how to get an LLC, EIN, build a website, properly network, etc. Not only do I feel confident now in my business processes from the training I received from HSR, but I feel like I can conquer ANYTHING that comes my way because I have the resources and fellow stagers that I've met along the way right at my disposal.
I've been in business less than a year and I've already seen tremendous growth by putting HSR's training into action...
It's the start of 2019, so today I look at my business as this is my year. I want to go out there and smile more, challenge myself, take risks, set new goals and make a change not only for myself and my business, but for the homeowners I have the chance to work with.
I love helping people sell their homes or redesign their current home. I love the looks on their faces when they see their home staged for the first time, but I love it even more when the home sells fast and for top dollar. If I can make people happy by selling their home or designing a space that better suits their lifestyle that they look forward coming home to, then I'm doing my job.
If I had to do it all over again, I wish I would have started 10 years ago! Even if you're on the fence about it, I say just go for it...
