It's time to go all in on this. It's time to take your visions of spaces to a new level. Lets go inside and look at the career of influencer and interior designer Mieya Hardee from Fathom Realty. She shares some words with us.  She is specifically an interior decorator for millennials.

Her first client was a mom. Can you imagine?! The space probably had to be versatile and flexible to change needs for space for occasions and family gettogethers. 

Here are 9 pointers to stay informed of: 

1: Know that Interior Design is a skill, you have to train your eye for it. You have to practice, stage things, play with textures and themes, know what the client is looking for in the space and find what dimensions are best complimented by what shape furniture, etc. YouTube always helps!

2.Perfection is not professionalism. You can be perfect to yourself to the point where customer service gets lost. Your standards for yourself should not be different than the standards from your customers.

3.Real estate is in the horizon because it every millionaire has dipped their toe in it! Learn how homes and rentals are marketed. Try a video of your staging expertise! Of course photos are great to add to your portfolio.

5. Properties change over time. You have to ride the wave.  Ways of selling your service in real estate will go on with or without you. 

6. Work off your debt. Don't go into an investment in the red. Be smart about how you can have your money for you. Do methods like the snowball effect to get started. 

7. Your friends are your supporters. True friends that are with you even before you start making money and don't hate on you or make you feel stupid or weird about your endeavors and dreams.

8. Be transparent about how hard business is and that you are not perfect. Show and tell people what is happening behind the scenes with you emotionally and mentally. Let them know your good days and your bad. The is no such thing as an easy business. If that were the case, we would all be CEOs haha.

9. Balance between personal content and brand content. There has to be a balance between the two or a mesh of the two. An unbalance or complete separation will make you not seem so confidence on both sides of the fence. You can seem all with on your Instagram business page and clueless personally on your personal one. Prospects and/or customers may fall off instead of gravitating to your other content.
