If you’re going to do something, if you are going to maintain that consistency, then you have to get really passionate about it.
Nurture your tribe. Put a lot of information out there but when you nurture your prospects and the people they become your tribe.
When you hire someone they are living your brand and you have such a specific trade, how did you manage the process?
I evaluated the way I work. I have a very specific method for how I work. It’s the same for every client that I have ever seen. I do and say the same thing to each client. So, I teach that to my designers. Even though all my interior designers have all been to interior design school, unlike me. Even though they have all worked as paid designers in the field, unlike me. I also make them train for a month in my method. So when you get an Affordable Interior Design designer, they are going to do all the steps that I do so that I know that every client is getting the exact same experience. So, I had to distill this unpredictable design method into a very formulaic. Which is how I like to work. Freedom with in a form. So I have a formula that I do every time and it works every time.
