You’ve built your home staging business…now isn’t it time to THRIVE?
This year at STAGE 2012 our focus will be on how ‘thrive’ with your home staging business. Too many people are into ‘surviving’ but I am going to challenge you to be into ‘thriving.’
That is why we have put together the very best home staging training event ever seen by this industry.
Recently I was honored to have written an Amazon #1 Best Seller for the home staging industry called ‘Love Sells; How to get every home buyer to fall in love with your house.’ I was able to become a #1 Best Seller because I chose to ‘Thrive’ instead of just ‘survive’ and together we are going to create the same success for you with your home staging business!
When I first started in the home staging industry, no one was there to show me exactly what it took to really build something great. There were ‘home staging teachers’ but they were just teaching ‘home staging’ and if you want a home staging business, then what you really need to learn is ‘business’ not just ‘home staging.’
That is where STAGE 2012 comes in. This is truly the ONLY home staging business and marketing training event offered in the entire industry. This is the event, open to all levels and all stagers, that will take you away from ‘survive’ and into ‘thrive!’
I should be honest with you though. If you are looking for a big huge ‘conference’ type of event that focuses on a little bit of this and a little bit of that, this is not the event for you.
STAGE 2012 is a serious, roll up your sleeves, learn to brand, learn to market, learn to do business…and make some big money…type of event…in other words…this is your turn to ‘Thrive!’
And in full disclosure, I should tell you that this is your LAST OPPORTUNITY to train with me in this way. This is my final year for STAGE which is why I am putting my ‘all’ into it for you and every single home stager in the world that is ready to Thrive in the home staging industry. I am being asked for more and more speaking engagements, interviews, and TV and media appearances and with all these blessings, I need to make sure I am still giving 100% to myself, my family, my career and APSD. So, this is my Final STAGE.
Needless to say, I have brought together an incredible STAGE 2012 Team to deliver the very best 3 days of training (and certification…more on that later!) you will ever experience!
Special Guest Brice Thomas, Managing Publisher of Homes and Land Magazine- We are honored to have BriceThomas join us at STAGE 2012 where he will introduce you to the ‘how to’s’ when it comes to getting showcased in Homes and Land Magazine (just like I have been!) and the best way to use it as a tool for your home staging business!
Special Guest Dr. James Chapman- One of my favorite people on this earth will grace us with his amazing insights on “Living a Life that Matters.” You can be the biggest stager in the world but if there is nothing there that matters then your efforts are all for naught. Dr. Chapman will engage you with his amazing storytelling as he intertwines the significance of ‘you’ and making your life matter. Jim has traveled extensively around the world, spending sabbaticals in Singapore, Thailand and India. For his most recent sabbatical in 2010, he received a Lilly Endowment grant that allowed him to spend the summer visiting New Mexico and exploring Chiapas, Mexico and Peru, Ecuador and The Galapagos Islands. In summer 2011, he led a church group to Mexico visiting and learning from indigenous Mayan communities and human rights groups. Jim is truly ‘Living a Life that matters’ and will inspire you to do the same!
Special Guest Carla Woolnough- Carla is the National spokesperson for RE/MAX Canada’s Fit to Sell program which educates agents and home owners on the benefits of staging before listing. She is also the founder and owner of the home decorating and staging company, Nex-Step Design since 2005. She has staged hundreds of homes for resale, maximizing potential selling prices and minimizing on-market listing times for her clients.
Special Guest Barbara Katnich- The owner of ‘Fresh Approach’ Barbara has made an art out of ‘Marketing to the Affluent’ where she consistently books home staging and design jobs for$15,000-$40,000. Hold on to your seat as Karen interviews Barb and finds out the secret behind her success and she promises to share with you how to do the same in your market.
