EVENTS BY THE MODERN HIVE
DESIGN MENTORSHIP DAY!
FEB. 26, 2021
Over the years I have gotten a ton of request for aspiring designers EAGER to learn how to jump start their own business or individuals interested in becoming an interior designer wanting to learn about the industry.
I LOVE helping people understand the industry and the entrepreneurial journey; the highs, the lows, and everything in between. After all I wouldn't be where I am today without the help of others who have mentored me along the way. But as a growing entrepreneur, mom with a young family, a community volunteer, and my passion for mentoring others, my time has become more limited than ever before. =(
In order to continue to mentor those who reach out to me, I have CREATED a 2 hour afternoon mentorship day where I share industry knowledge and advice for how to break into the industry, and my best advice for building an interior design business.
What will I learn during this event?
LEARN ABOUT MY JOURNEY:
I'll share my entrepreneurial journey with you from the very beginning. Did you know, I started The Modern Hive when I was 22 years old without a lick of real design firm experience and before I had even graduated design school?! OH how I have learned so.many.things. the hard way. I'll share how I got started, how I set up my business and all the basic essentials you need to know about establishing a business.
LEARN ABOUT THE INTERIOR DESIGN INDUSTRY:
In the design industry, there is more to it than what meets the eye. Did you know that nearly 80% of my time is spent in the office 'managing' my design projects and business, and only about 20% is actually spent crafting a new design or meeting with clients? So what is it that I'm actually doing when I'm not working on a design project? Learn about my typical day (which isn't so typical.. almost ever) . Learn about the good, the bad, the rewards of being an interior designer and the challenges of being an interior designer. Design IS a rewarding industry to be a part of, but with an ever evolving realm of technology it's a constantly changing industry that presents challenges, and if you don't learn with the curve of technology or how to 'work it' in this industry, you can quickly get left behind.
LEARN ABOUT HOW I SUCCESSFULLY RUN AN INTERIOR DESIGN BUSINESS:
Starting my design business at the age of 22 wasn't exactly easy. I had to learn so many things with little experience and on a $0.00 budget. I had get creative with marketing myself, finding clients, and knowing when to invest in programs that could help me elevate my client's experiences. Over the years I have (and continue to everyday) develop systems and leverage programs that can help me operate daily operations. I'll share my top productivity generating apps and systems.
We'll spend some time throughout the event that will give you the opportunity to ask your biggest design questions and questions on entrepreneurship. Come prepared to ask questions!

You'll leave the event with a take home handout recapping the key points and tips from the day - your's to keep and refer back to!
