Is Your Home Staging or Redesign Business Running You Ragged?

Tell me, does this sound like you?

1. Work long hours consulting
2. Spend long hours each week marketing
3. Paperwork is endless
4. Not to mention the actual staging

If so, what do you do? Here are two suggestions:

1. Hire out the paperwork. Find somebody that can take care of billing, etc 2 afternoons a week
2. Raise your rates. If you have more work than you can handle, your rates are too low. There is no need to be affordable to EVERYBODY! You may lose a few clients here and there, but in general, you will work less for the same or more money. And for most people I talk to, they raise their rates and lose no business at all! What does that mean? Raise them again - and in the meantime, you can now pay that assistant with no worries.
