What does it take to be the CEO of your own interior design business?

In this episode, I explore what the CEO mindset entails, why it matters, and how it can drive your interior design business to new heights.

I also share what it is like to be one – and it’s way more than doing design work and establishing processes, procedures, and structure. There are other traits a business owner must possess to grow a business and lead effectively. 

As a designer, I encourage you to adopt a CEO mindset and be accountable for your business. Because to achieve success, a plan, goals, and processes must be implemented.

This week’s episode allows you to embrace the CEO mindset and implement strategies to help you build a successful business. These skills will help you be a better leader, delegate tasks effectively, and trust your team to ensure a positive work environment.
