I am joined today by special guest Courtney Clark, an Uploft Interior Design Academy student. She has been on the podcast before to share her personal story, from being interested in interior design to enrolling in the academy and now working for herself and taking on clients. Since I get asked so much by prospective students about what an actual coaching session entails, Courtney has graciously agreed to help me give you a snapshot of what these look like inside the Uploft Interior Design Academy for our students.

This episode, we discuss…

[3:54] Bringing the suitable artwork into an open floor plan to create a more intimate feel

[13:00] Guidelines for incorporating molding into an open floor plan design

[20:06] The most significant challenges being faced as a new business owner

[28:06] Following up with clients after the initial presentation to finalize selections

[33:27] Supply chain issues and how to articulate that to clients

[38:14] Letting go of the need for approval and finding fulfillment in your interior design path
