I know I’ve been missing for longer than normal. October has been a fantastic month! I haven’t had a chance to write my blog like usual because of other things I’m working on. I also hopped on a plane and attended High Point Market in North Carolina for the first time. It was an incredible experience, but I must say I’ve missed my blog and am happy to be back.
So, how have you been? Are you working on a life you love? I hope so.
That brings me to an educational event I attended at High Point I want to share with you.
I’ve been an admirer and student of Gail Doby, Lisa Ferguson, and Sarah Walker for a few years now. I made a priority to attend their ELEVATE seminar to see them in person, and attending it was worth every minute. I was also lucky enough to be selected for a one-on-one session with Sarah to analyze my copy on this website. I’m still pinching myself for such a great opportunity.
A little background: we met at the Eilersen showroom. I’ve never heard of Eilersen, but I fell in love with their furniture as I enjoyed the seminar and sat on various pieces. The quality was tip-top, and so was the comfort.
Gail gave an overview of how an interior design business should be run. She is the master and I’ve taken some of her courses online. Her methods are something every interior designer should adopt.
Lisa taught us how to use our strengths to make us flourish. Isn’t that what we all want? My number one strength, according to Gallup, is “Learner”. I enjoy the journey as much as I do an end result. I think that’s an interesting strength to have, and am really interested in seeing how it can enhance my business.
Sarah dug into our “story”, and this is the slide I want you to see.
This may be in reference to business, but take a look at all the questions again. They are questions everyone should be asking, no matter what they are doing. If you want, share some of your answers in the comment section! They would be great to read.
After the presentations, I went to a break-out session with Sarah, and she helped me re-write my “About” page. She’s one talented lady! She hadn’t even looked at my website before the session, and in our short time together, she came up with sentences that told my story in a beautiful way. If you need copy for your site, I would give Sarah a call! She’s amazing.
Sarah has also generously shared her presentation on her blog, so if you want to get more in-depth with this topic, click on the link.
Thanks Gail, Lisa, and Sarah for putting on a great event! I think the world of all of you.
As for everyone else reading this, I have more posts about High Point coming up. Stay tuned!
