WITHOUT CHERYL'S COACHING I'D PROBABLY WOULD HAVE RUN MY SHOP AND COMPANY INTO THE GROUND.

"The biggest takeaway from projecting profit and fees is that you can’t scale up in any capacity without. Just not a possibility. If you can’t project then you can’t know when to hire more people, order inventory or even take a vacation. 

So fortunate to have met Cheryl."

business coaching with Cheryl Clendenon
If you are here then I KNOW you are wondering--
Where to go from the level you are on now
(no place but up) 
How to navigate the changes in running a business
(biggest changes in the past 100 years)
Not are not afraid of being disobedient to the classic normative
(and no longer working)
business models of interior design.

+ You are ready to slay the dragons and not afraid to be different than the next guy while doing it.

+ You have a voice, A point of view. And now want to reframe your business to align with that voice. 

+ You are working consistently - but need to become more efficient in processes and client management.

+ You want to know where your business is going next month, next year, 5 years down the road.

+ You know you need to hire help - but who?  and when? and how to train them?

+ You want to work hard, play hard and find your balance. Whatever that looks like for you because you do you, and not a cheap imitation of someone else's brand of success.

+ You want more confidence in running the day to day business and be able to project profits consistently. 

+ You want to master the art of guerilla marketing - with original ideas - not rehashed. 

+ You want to stand out amongst your peers, be recognized and slay all the dragons.  

The Design Paradigm is not for everyone.

It's challenging. It has epic twists and turns in the way you might think about business.

It's not a magic wand. (but kind of similar)

 

It may not be for those who worry excessively about what others' think because it takes courage to do forge your path with determination.

And is surely not for those who do not want to collaborate with us in the pursuit of disruptive reinvention.  

ARE YOU--

  • A little rebellious in thought- even if you hide it sometimes?
  • Want to win it?
  • Don't care what others are doing?
  • Can be brave when you need to be even if your knees are knocking? 
  • Eschew being popular for being an one of a kind?
  • Want a sustainable business over the long haul that allows you to stand up and stand out?

Then we may just be the
right fit for you!

 Meet Cheryl

 

A 23 YEAR DAMN GOOD DESIGNER®, SMALL BUSINESS AND INTERIOR DESIGNER COACH, PODCAST HOST & INDUSTRY WRITER


 

200 or so years ago a child came roaring into the world feet first ready to show up and argue a cause. Just because. Her mother still tells the true story- the kid was screaming-“why”- from the minute she landed wrong side up and slapped the doctor for disturbing her afternoon nap.

And to this day does not give “it” a rest except when she is sleeping. Which is where you will find her only between the hours of 2am and 7:30am. A belligerent non-smoker (in case you were wondering) and a frequent challenger of anything that resembles “normal” or desired by the masses, Cheryl is a natural born contrarian who talks faster than 2x speed on a podcast.

She gravitates towards wanting to help clients and designers who are the square pegs in a world of round holes, lose earrings impossibly frequently, fall off of platform shoes and are unapologetically saucy and possesses a wicked side eye.

Relaxing is not in the skill set.

Life begins and ends with family.

 

Her sacred words are: Why, Percipient, Whizbang and Profit.

"I had to excuse myself from the call a minute ago because the client we sent our first visual proposal and minimum expenditure came in to pay her first installment of the $10,000 design fee! Minimum expenditure is $60,000. I'm probably going to have a lot more questions going forward! And, I'm sending our second visual proposal this week to another client! Thank you!!!!"
