"I believe each house has a soul, an essence that one connects with. I have a passion for decorating and designing which began when I was a child. I would drive my parents …
“I always wanted to ‘grow up’ to be an interior decorator. Instead, I became a mom and worked odd jobs to be able to stay home with my 2 children while my husband worked during the day.”
“We have owned 10 homes in our 33 years of marriage. I have decorated each home and have had friends, prospective buyers and Realtors give me positive feedback. Each of our homes sold within weeks. Like many others, I have enjoyed the staging programs on HGTV and have thought about doing this but didn’t know what to do or how to do it.”
“Recently, I was laid off from a school district job and decided to look up staging on the internet as I heard it was one of the up-and-coming home businesses. I learned that you didn’t need to get certification or licensing; however, I needed help with the business end of my career choice.”
“I found many places online that stated they could provide the information that I was looking for. Ultimately, I went with the Staging Diva Program. I found it to be straightforward, and it had all the information that I was looking for without being too complicated.”
“I look forward to finishing the program and beginning my own business working for myself and nobody else. Thank you!”

Before signing up for a home staging training course, it’s important to thoroughly research the company and the instructor first. These articles will get you started:
