I am so excited to share the interview I did with Nicaila Matthews Okome of Side Hustle Pro! We talked about my journey from corporate finance to interior design, the many lessons (some funny and some hard) that I learned being an entrepreneur, and so much more! I suggest you listen now and follow Side Hustle Pro!
“I charged this girl $350 and when I look back at it, clearly I didn’t know anything about pricing and had no respect for my time.”
“Relationships are everything and can get you through that front door.”
“After every client I update my contract because I’ve learned something new that I need to consider.”
“I invest in photography, my website, and everything that reflects my brand. I’m very cognizant of how my brand looks and how it is presented to the world.”
“For you to get really good press, your photos and the story as to why you did that project has to really be buttoned up tightly. You have to be able to tell the story through your photos.”
“I’m such a planner and I realized that you can’t plan for everything because things will happen that are beyond your control.”
“You have to work with people that have the same integrity that you do and care about the work the same way that you do… and that it should be about the best end result for the client and not anyone’s ego.”
