“I can't wait for this years event - its already on my calendar”
Attending the 2021 Interior Design Business Success Summit was one of the best decisions I've made when it comes to my business.
The days were packed with excellent speakers - the topics were meaningful and I was able to take action to implement the content right away! I've hired an assistant, transferred my bookkeeping & procurement, set up new and fantastic vendor accounts, AND adjusted my insurance coverage.
See you in October!

Are you still reeling from the year we’ve had?!
It’s time to catch your breath
As the interior design industry continues to evolve and grow to the ever-changing marketplace, including the rise of eCommerce, un-ending lead times, and rising costs, the need for outside-the-box thinking and coming together as a community is needed more than ever.
And after a year like 2021, we deserve an event where we can come together and discuss it all — and so much more!
Making time for yourself and your business isn’t a luxury — it’s a must
Be honest: When’s the last time that you really decided to treat yo’self in your business?
To dedicate three full days ((without kids, spouses, or anybody to take care of) to evolve your skills as a business owner, build deep connections with fellow designers and incredible vendors, and really plan for your next level of growth?
If you’re like most interior designers...
The answer is never.
Here's the truth:
There has never been a better time to...
- Learn what new lines of revenue you can add to your growing business
- Build a winning team that is just as invested in your business as you are
- Manage client expectations without losing your mind
- Meet new vendors, set up new accounts, and see new product lines
- Connect with other designers and develop local and nationwide relationships
- Get the tea on what it’s like to work with HGTV
- Create healthy habits, without trading your time for money
- and so much more.

“This is a must-attend event for your interior design business!”
Attending the inaugural Interior Design Business Success Summit was one of the best decisions I’ve made for my business in years... even amidst the uncertainty of 2020. Attending again in 2021 continued moving my business forward & elevating my services.
Michelle's wisdom and encouragement were exactly what I needed to push me out of the burnout cycle I’d found myself in.
The speakers have consistently been fantastic, I made new friends, and I was able to make connections with vendors I didn't even know existed - allowing me to immediately add profit to my bottom line. This is a must-attend event.

I know exactly what it’s like to feel overworked, overwhelmed, and underpaid as an interior designer.
A few years into my business, “overdeliver” was my middle name — and my business, bank account, and boundaries paid the price.
That’s why I put the Interior Design Business Summit together.
When I started my interior design firm, it took me a while to figure out how to run an interior design business profitably - without running myself into the ground.
The secret sauce to a successful interior design business
Once I figured out the secret sauce – simple, elegant processes for doing great work and making great money – I knew I had to share it with other designers.
So whether you have been in business for 10 days or 10 years, come learn more about the business of interior design from industry experts and spend some time at Dallas Market Center surrounded by other designers.

Imagine spending 3 whole days immersed in the business side of your interior design business...
If just one idea, process, or mindset shift happened during this event for you, it could more than pay for the cost to attend.
Last year’s attendees applied what they learned to exponentially increase their income in 2022 — and you can do the same!

“Tremendous value to my business and clients!”
At times, running your interior design business can feel lonely and intimidating.
Attending the Interior Design Business Success Summit allowed me to take a confident leap into the world of designer trade while also making lifetime friendships and memories.
It has added tremendous value to my business and the clients I serve.

“A knowledge super-booster for my business and my confidence;
The Interior Design Business Summit served as a knowledge super-booster for my business and my confidence as an Interior Designer.
The badass speaker line-up provided me with a variety of possibilities on how to approach marketing, how to establish social media strategies, also digging into mindset and how to tailor all of those ideas to implement them into my business. All of this while sharing the experience and creating long-lasting relationships with an exclusive group of talented industry professionals.
