I’m here with a guest this week! I love having a guest, because they provide inspiration and help me to think about new things in different ways.  While interior design seems like it’s just one topic, there are many facets to any industry - and interior design is no different.  Justin Breen and I met through our business group.  We were put into a breakout session on Zoom and we connected right away.  He has some great things to share with you guys about the importance of knowing yourself as a designer and as a business owner.

This episode, we discuss…

[2:25] Interior designing your mindset

[5:30] What entrepreneurs have to overcome

[7:07] Staying in your zone of genius
