Tip 1: Home staging is one of the easiest businesses to start, because it’s flexible and doesn’t require investment

by debra on June 13, 2018

Over the years I’ve gotten hundreds of emails from people asking if this is the right business for them.

My answer is always the same: if you have an eye for decorating, then home staging is hands-down the easiest way to make m0ney doing what you love.

The best part is that it doesn’t have to be all-or-nothing, because you can easily start a staging business alongside other work or family obligations.

Let me tell you a quick story about how I got into staging. Back in 2002, I was a single mother raising my 7-year-old with no friends or family nearby to help with childcare.

I needed to be able to maximize what I earned while my daughter was at school, and not have to work evenings or weekends when she was home.

As is the case for many of my students, starting a home staging business completely changed my life.

During a two-hour home staging consultation I was able to use all my creative talents and also walk out with a bigger check than many people earn in an entire week working full-time.

The best part was that I had the freedom to choose to set my client appointments no earlier than 10AM to give me plenty of time to drop my daughter off at school and miss rush hour traffic.

I could also schedule days off for vacations whenever I wanted to.

The flexibility that staging gives you also makes it possible to start a home staging business without quitting your existing job.

For a great example of this, click here to learn more about Staging Diva Graduate Holly Battaglia. She started her staging business while working as a nurse and parenting four children aged 7-14.

Home staging also requires very little startup investment when you follow my business model.

Even though I’ve personally staged hundreds of homes— from tiny apartments to big mansions— I’ve never bought my own furniture for my staging business. In fact, I don’t even own any accent pillows (aside from the ones I use in my own home).

Since you don’t need your own inventory and you can literally run your business from your kitchen table following the business model I’ve created, you can start earning a profit in this business from your very first client or two.

I explain how to do this in more detail in Course 2 of the Staging Diva® Home Staging Business Training Program.
