Home Staging Portfolio Secrets:

Learn How to Create a Dynamic Professional Staging or Redesign Portfolio and Use It to Dramatically Increase Your Client Base for Huge Profits and Massive Referrals

What could you possibly do --- right now --- in your business, to stimulate a six to seven figure profit increase this year?

Do YOU know where to kick? I do.

Let me explain and extend a special invitation to you to profit.

 There's an old joke. The plumber gets called in to fix a broken washing machine. He comes in. He listens to the noise. Then he gives a swift "kick" to a strategic spot in the back --- and, guess what? The washing machine starts working like new.

Time elapsed? Three minutes. Then he submits his bill for $200. The outraged washing machine owner asks for a detailed itemization of what she's being asked to pay for. Twenty dollars for my time, said the repair man. And one hundred and eighty dollars for knowing where to kick!

For generations, successful business owners have long known that it makes good financial sense to pay brilliant, creative, money-making geniuses almost whatever fee they asked.

I've seen lots of people come and go in this business over the years and I've marveled from time to time that some are extremely successful and others extreme failures. While there are many answers for this, which is a problem common to all industries, it began to dawn on me that there was a critical component in my own process that had not been dealt with in sufficient substance and just down right specifics.

I'm talking about how one goes about creating an actual exclusive portfolio of their work to use to gain new clients.

You see, home staging and interior redesign are visual, creative businesses. And as such, it just doesn't make very good sense to try to build a business without the proper visual aids.

Any business that deals in interior design to any extent needs to be able to demonstrate visually the benefits and features it offers for a prospect or client.  Words are great and words are needed.

But there's got to be a great visual presentation to go with the words to really be successful.

I recognized this a long time ago but . . .

I didn't do anything about teaching students how to create what they needed for themselves. Instead I went and created great tools for them to purchase and use so they didn't have to reinvent the wheel and could jump start their business right out of the gate.

Well, that proved wildly successful - but only to a degree. It was especially beneficial for start-ups, but didn't help those that really got their businesses launched and who began to have their own story to tell with their own set of wonderful photographs.

And that's where the system fell apart.

So it finally dawned on me . . .

that it was time to teach students how to create their own unique staging and redesign portfolio which would not only speak well of their own talents on the local level but would dramatically increase their opportunities to garner new business.

You see, it's not just a matter of having a portfolio. Well, you've got to have one - no question about that.

But the crux of the issue is: What do you do with it once you've made one?

Here is where students really struggled.

So it finally hit me that I had not really taught yet a system of using the portfolio to one's advantage and to do it in such a way that anyone could follow and feel totally comfortable and confident.

As you know, confidence is key!

It doesn't do anyone any good to have a great, powerful portfolio and then not have the courage and professionalism to use it in the right way.

So answering those problems and formulating a guide that would teach anyone the step by step process to success was the next step I knew I needed to take.

The result is:  Staging Portfolio Secrets!

To be honest, this is one of my best efforts - I hope you'll agree!

And so I tested it out for awhile. Here are some early comments:

PREVIEW TESTIMONIAL - "This book was everything I hoped it would be and more. Thank you so much for giving me such a great plan to follow and for laying it all out. I learned so much and have already started using the techniques. It works! Thank you. Audrey Moss"

PREVIEW TESTIMONIAL - "Great job, Barbara. This is one of your best books. It is so practical and really makes sense. I feel kind of dumb that I didn't figure it out for myself. As usually, you have out done yourself once again. Many thanks for making this available. Cindy Montrelli"

You know, if you're going to be successful, you've got to have the right tools and visual aids to assist you. If not, you're cutting your nose off to spite your face, so to speak.

Good - I mean - great visuals just don't happen. They take time to create. They take effort. They take planning. And they take execution.

But even more than that, there has to be a concrete plan of action when done that will implement the proper showing of the portfolio to the right people. You can show it to anyone you want, any time you get ready to, but I'm not talking about that.

I'm talking about getting in front of the right types of people in the right setting and showing your portfolio is a very impacting, professional manner that will get results.  It is results we're after, you know.

Sales for my newest book have been phenomenal and I'm very pleased with the reception so far. It takes a lot of time, energy and focus to write a book, and I always wince when I start because it feels so overwhelming. But once I get into the subject matter, I get excited about what I'm sharing and my hopes rise up and keep me going. Just knowing that it could improve your business, even in the smallest increments, is enough to keep me at my computer, neck pain and all.

I share this with you because I want you to know that successful people do what other people are not willing to do. What kind of person are you? Are you willing to go the extra mile?

The only one who can fire you is you. In every other situation, your source of income is controlled by someone else. And no one is exempt from the chopping block.

But to be successful in business, you've got to have tenacity and the ability to adapt to the ever changing business climate where you live and work. This book is dedicated to help you really reach out to the types of people who can help you build your business in a non-threatening manner. It's more than a treatise on how to actually make a personal business portfolio. No, no. What good is a top notch portfolio if you don't know what to do with it?

I intend to teach you a very solid, tried and true system for using your portfolio once you've made it. Yes, I'll teach you how to make one up, the do's and don'ts and stuff like that. But be prepared to learn a method of using your portfolio - that's where the dollars are hidden.

But that's not to say that this training is right for you . . .

What you will learn in this book will do you absolutely no good whatsoever if you are someone who lacks follow through skills.  If you just read the material and do nothing, nothing is what you will get back. Don't waste your time getting it.

The strategies I'm teaching demand action - specific actions - and if you're kind of lazy and a huge procrastinator - well, maybe it isn't right for you.

On the other hand, if you're really are serious about building your business and you want the absolute best, nearly fool-proof methods of doing just that, then you've got to get this book and learn how to do it the right way.

I can't say it any more plainly than that.

I'm confident you'll be delighted with your copy and will use my system over and over again to help promote your business - if you believe in the system and devote yourself to it.

It does work. It will involve your time and effort at first, but there's no reason why it will not pay off for you as it has done for others. But ultimately it will be up to you to read the book, do the assignments, create your portfolio, and then methodically take the steps I've outlined for you.
