Holiday home staging advice from Staging Diva

Here we are approaching the middle of December. There's a good chance that if you're called for a home staging project anytime between now and the New Year, you will have a holiday decorating dilemma to deal with.

In a recent post on the Home Staging Business Report, I've shared my best home staging tips for the holidays. You can read that post here.

Staging Diva doesn't advertise her home address!

It's a great freedom, being able to work from home as professional home stager. Since we go to our clients' homes to conduct our consultations and staging projects, there is not one single reason why a client ever needs to visit their stager's office.

That's why there's no need for you to give away the location of your business - your home address.

Home staging accessories should belong to the home owner

A lot of people put off their dream of learning home staging because they're afraid of incurring a lot of debt stocking up on art, towels, accessories and bedding for home staging projects.

But if you’ve been putting off your desire to learn home staging because you’re not financially prepared to purchase these items up front, you should know you have other options.

To learn more about how I handle the process of obtaining accessories for my home staging projects, read this post on the Home Staging Business Report.

The Staging Diva Celebrates Birthday with Home Staging Training Sale

Today is my 50th birthday. This time last year I was preoccupied with trying to shake off the “getting old blues.” Of course, turning 49 wasn’t as bad as I was making it out to be and over the past year, I’ve come to terms with my age and I’m welcoming my 50s with open arms.

I hope you’ll help me celebrate reaching this milestone by participating in my 50th Birthday Sale! From now until October 30, depending on how much you spend at the Staging Diva® Store, you can save $50, $100 or $150 on your purchases.

Staging Diva embraces turning 50

Yes, I’m turning 50 this month! To be honest, I was more upset last year when I was turning 49, but I'm happy to report that I've come to terms with my age even though I don’t feel it and I certainly don’t consider myself old.

Last week I got a call from an aspiring home stager that saddened me. She said she was 46 and too old to start something new.

Visit this article on the Staging Diva Dispatch blog to see why this upset me so much and why I believe she's too old NOT to be doing something she loves

Staging Diva is a home stager and a mom

Over the summer, I took a break from staging homes and put my energy instead into business planning and being a mom.

One of the best parts of being my own boss is that I get to take time out to do other things without ever requesting vacation time or waiting until the next holiday.

Maybe it was the break from staging and decorating other people's homes that made me channel my creative energy into my own house.
