In recent years there has been a rise in the amount of new mums who are eager to get back into the workforce but struggle to find the balance between being a full time new mum and working the job they had before giving birth. Chances are your mindset has completely changed and you might not be sure if your previous job is still right for you…that’s where home staging comes into the mix!
Creating a new career in home staging is an effective way to get back into the workforce fast without having to worry about how many hours you are spending at the office.
One of the best things about starting a home staging business, particularly for new mums, is that you get to decide when you work, where and for who. This might mean that you stage one house ever fortnight or so, it’s completely up to you and your situation!
When starting out in the home staging business, especially as a new mum, money might be quite tight. If this is the case you can always do walk throughs, telling the owners what would look better and where, what colour they should paint the house and so on. If you are willing to invest some money into your business it is best to invest in soft furnishings rather than lounges, beds and tables that you don’t have the storage for.
Being a new mum means that more often than not you are waiting around while the baby is asleep. Not only will this give you a routine but it will also mean that you are able to set specific times to work on increasing your social media presence and website content flow. The online home staging space is also a great place to make connections with others in the industry. As a new mum you may be able to enrol in an online home staging course where you are able to learn the ins and outs everything you need to know to increase your home staging knowledge and your business, making it the perfect industry for new mums!
