It’s been pretty much one year since I started Get Ink DIY (say WHAT???) and one of my favorite things has been learning something new almost every day. I’ve learned things about running an online business, which was all new and exciting, but I’ve also had lots of eye-opening moments about the interior design profession and how designers run their businesses.
Since PR and marketing are functions that are intended to support your business goals, it is absolutely critical for me to have a good grasp of all aspects of the interior design business. Except I will leave the actual design work to you. (Believe me it's better that way! I just painted the entire interior of my house white, that should tell you enough, lol.)
Because I love to learn new things, I’ve found our weekly Designer Discussions on Clubhouse incredibly interesting. I’ve taken some great nuggets of hands-on tips and honest advice away from each topic and speaker.

It’s been one heck of a year. No doubt.
I am sure you have your own journal full of memories of this year - the good, the bad, and maybe, the ugly. It’s likely material for a best-selling novel with drama tucked in every corner of every page. I have mine too.
But as a realistic optimist, I like to focus on the positive things this year has brought me.

Not that it is stellar in any corporate job these days. However, from my previous life in corporate, I vividly remember how the contractors were always the first ones to get cut if the numbers didn’t add up. It was definitely time to kick Plan B into gear.
As it happened, I’d been noodling a project for a good couple of years: Creating a...
Today, I have some good news and need a favor. After months - not to say years - of work, I am putting the finishing touches on my long-awaited Master DIY PR Course for interior designers.
This program has been a labor of love, but at times it has felt like giving birth. As a mom of three, I know what I am talking about ;) Kidding aside, now that the finish line is in sight, I could really use your help.
I want to make sure that I’ve covered everything, but I am a bit too close to the project right now. I may not realize what you don’t know yet and would like to learn when it comes to getting started with doing your own PR. I would love some input from you. It will only take a few seconds. If you are a design professional, can you go to this link and answer two super-simple questions?
Thanks so much!
