Here at IIHS, we strive to make a difference in the lives of our students that goes beyond the course content. It could be through giving you the tools you need to succeed, or the confidence you need to make positive changes in your lives. Each year, we are so proud of the growth and determination we see in our students and we’re over the moon to share some amazing success stories of some of the best home stagers and stylists from the IIHS community!
So without further ado, we would like to introduce…
Jessica Dwyer – Right At Home Staging
How has your business grown since studying with IIHS?
“For me personally, I did not want to go out into the real estate market trying to sell my services without having any formal training behind me. I came from a corporate environment with no experience in Property Styling or owning my own business, so commencing studies with IIHS gave me the framework l needed to start my business.
From the smallest things l would have struggled with – things l would never have thought of, to larger things like templates or reading materials – the IIHS Course really helped put things into perspective.
Right at Home Staging is a regional business, so its taken a little while for the concept to be embraced, but its really started to pick up for me and l have no doubt that being an IIHS student and professional member has given me the right skills and confidence to stay focused, positive and professional.”
What were the biggest things you learnt from studying with IIHS?
“Everything! As mentioned above, l had no experience in running my own business or property styling, so l really felt that the course and materials were such a good starting point for me. I think things would have been a lot more difficult for me if l were trying to start this business without the course or support of IIHS.”
What are the goals you have for your business and how did studying with IIHS help you achieve these?
“The goal was to become a reputable property styling business for my area. I can’t even imagine how this would have happened without the support of IIHS. IIHS has given me so much more confidence and for that l am so grateful. It’s a pleasure studying with IIHS, the feedback on each assignment is always valuable and getting support from other members is also priceless.”
Congrats Jess, we’re so proud of you!
