The reasoning behind my transformation from Refresh Decorating to Minhnuyet Hardy Interiors…
Twelve years ago when I began decorating professionally, I never imagined where this amazing career would take me. It was a slow process at first, but room after room, and client after satisfied client, I built a business and reputation around designing creative and functional spaces for my clients strictly part-time, one project at a time (well, ok, sometimes two projects at once). After all, my first priorities was being a wife and mom, decorator extraordinaire came in as lowly third priority. As I worked with more and more clients and saw how much joy I brought to people’s lives; that realization along with a major surgery, convinced me that I no longer wanted to do design on a part-time basis. I wanted to get published and have a successful design firm and gain the credibility that comes along with those goals, so I started taking on more clients and more projects.
Refresh Decorating was growing at such a rate, that my website and business model no longer mirrored my expanding vision for my rapidly changing business.
I knew I needed to make a change to reflect the type of work that I was doing, and also the type of work I wanted to continue to attract.
Enter Tobi Fairley.
She is a famed interior designer & consultant that specializes in small business rebranding specifically working with interior designers.
I attended and am continuing to attend her Mastermind conferences that center around building successful, creative businesses.
I am so grateful for the information I have received. It has created a ripple effect within my business that has catapulted me toward higher levels of efficiency and a level of branding that truly encapsulates my unique vision for my business. She has also helped me focus on my niche market, professional men and bachelors.
It has been a process – and by that I mean an investment of both time, money, and brain power, but I am so excited! In addition to the physical re-branding, I am also adding a blog to my business. I am looking forward to sharing ideas, tips & tricks, what I’m learning, and a behind-the-scenes look into the everyday life of an interior designer. It has been so much work, but every moment has been so rewarding. I’m creating a career surrounding what I am most passionate about. What a dream!
