CEO and President Michelle Lynne podcast image

Show Notes: 


Welcome back to the Design for the Creative Mind podcast, where we discuss the journey from being a novice "baby designer" to becoming a successful "big girl business owner." In this episode, we'll explore the transformation and key elements that can help you achieve your design business goals.


A "baby designer" is where most of us start our journey in the interior design industry. Transitioning from a baby designer to a big girl business owner involves various elements.

Success is subjective and defined differently by each individual.


In this episode, we've explored the journey from being a baby designer to becoming a big girl business owner in the interior design industry. Success is defined individually, but it often involves creating efficient processes, marketing effectively, maintaining consistency, making tough decisions, and adopting a CEO mindset. Stay tuned for more insights and advice on achieving your design business goals in future episodes.

Michelle Lynne began her interior design career after spending more than two decades working in Corporate America. She began in the home staging arena and has since built a successful, award-winning, full-service interior design firm, employing talented designers and serving clients across the country.

In the summer of 2018, Michelle began focusing on a big gap she saw missing in the interior design industry: teaching interior designers how to run the business of an interior design business. She now engages in private coaching and leads an in-depth, 12-month group coaching program, both options focus on teaching designers profitable processes, systems, strategies, and mindset needed to run a streamlined, profitable interior design firm.


Her motto is simple: we rise by lifting others.
