Tip 5: What a Stager Does and Doesn’t Do

by debra on June 9, 2018

Many new or aspiring home stagers worry that they don’t have the physical strength required to be a successful home stager.

They haven’t met my oldest graduate, 76-year-old Jean Smith in Florida who had her first two clients within weeks of completing the Staging Diva Program.

She was thrilled to be able to find a way to use her creativity to help others, while adding to her retirement savings and having new projects to look forward to.

It’s important to remember that although there are many services that fall within the realm of home staging, it doesn’t mean you have to do them all yourself.

We are not glorified house cleaners, packers or furniture movers.

As a home stager, I prefer to think of myself as the “creative visionary” who knows what needs to be done, and then finds others to do the tasks I don’t want to do myself.

I may pick the colors, but I don’t swing the paintbrush. I may recommend a thorough house cleaning, but I don’t grab the mop! the most physically strenuous thing I do is hang a new shower curtain or move accessories around. And even that can be delegated to others under your creative supervision.

As I mentioned in Tip 2, you can actually make money on all these extra services without hiring employees or doing the work yourself. That’s what I talk about (and more) in Course 5, “Over 30 More Ways to Make Money in Home Staging.”

In my 5-course program, you’ll learn what you need to know to start your staging business and gain more confidence as you listen to all my stories of what it’s really like being a stager.

You’ll appreciate following the step-by-step business model I’ve prepared, which will save you months (if not years) of trial and error trying to figure it all out on your own.

Best regards,

Debra Gould, The Staging Diva
President, Voice of Possibility Group Inc.
