Hello fellow QC Design School Students! I am thrilled to say that I have just graduated and received my certificates for Home Staging and Professional Organizing! Although the timing is certainly off with COVID 19
… high 5 to me
I am from Ontario Canada and from a small town. Now I did complete the optional Unit F as I thought it was great opportunity to practice what is required. I am actually going to do the same thing , while off work I will work on developing a web page and my Portfolio . I honestly do not have a clue on to how to do a webpage, I will ask my son to help me in that department. Also I do not plan on doing Home Staging full time. I am actually thinking about approaching a local Home Stager in our area that I have been following and see if she would like to add a Home Stager to her team, I could contract myself out to her. I don't want a huge webpage and get swamped and I also do not want to carry my own inventory in way of furniture, she is already set up in that department so if there is a way I could work with her and cover some territory to help I will be satisfied with that, plus have the opportunity and grow working with an experienced Home Stager. Now Professional Organizer is where I would go off on my own as far as a business is concerned. However even this, at this time is not possible due to this unbelievable Global Crisis that shut down the entire economy.
Not to mention every person I know is literally gutting and organizing their own home while they too are off work. So yes really unfortunate timing here but thats ok. I am proud I graduated and accomplished what I set out to do. I am excited for the future as this will some day, some month pass. Just think from a positive side we have all this time now while off from our regular jobs to really focus on our new business and will be all set to go when the time comes, not feeling rushed. Also so many people, family and friends have already organized their home while off work, guess what it won't last, they need to go back to work so it is going to get unorganized very quickly and they are going to be very discouraged that all their hard work went down the tubes again
. Especially if they did not have a long term plan. That is when us Professionals jump in and really get them back on track with a forever plan. The same goes with Home Staging, the market is basically at a halt right now , in our area anyway , but when this is over it is going to explode
So get prepared for it
and get your piece of the pie:) Well I wish you all the very best, I hope your path is prosperous soon. Take care, be kind, practice social distancing and wash your hands!
