Is this you?

  • You work in a home staging business and you love your job
  • You are a dedicated worker and want to create connections and relationships with other home stagers all over Australia to expand your network and knowledge
  • Everything starts and stops with you. You do the marketing, agent education, sales, operations, logistics, invoicing, banking AND styling
  • You spend hours trying to figure out how to expand your client basis with social media
  • Without you in the business, there is no business!

 

Having the passion and drive to work in and run a home staging business is amazing, but without support from other home stagers it is easy to feel stressed and disheartened when things don’t go to plan.

The most successful home stagers and stylists develop relationships with other stagers and continuous education remains an integral part of their development throughout their career

FACT

You Are More Likely to Push Yourself and Feel Motivated by Surrounding Yourself with Like-Minded People

You can have read all the latest blogs and magazines about other home stagers but that doesn’t mean that you are benefiting from the emotional and mental support they could be providing to you.

You can feel like you are connected to a thousand different people in home staging and styling because you follow them on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and keep up with their blogs but you only have a digital connection with these people, not a human connection.

So let’s say you read everything other home stagers and stylists write online and take their advice like it’s the law…

…but an issue arises in your business

…and the people you follow on social media haven’t ever spoken about the issue before

…and because you only have a digital connection you don’t get a reply to a comment you left on their post about the issue.

What then?

You see, you can follow every home stager in the world but unless you have formed a human, mutual connection with them it can be impossible to receive the support you need.

You didn’t do anything wrong…but in the world of social media and with thousands of followers it can be difficult for an expert who can help you to reply to every comment or question you have.

Why Do Most People Stop Chasing Their Property Styling Dream?

Here are a few reasons why people stop chasing their dreams even though they are committed to their work and get positive feedback for the properties they have staged:

 

  • They find it difficult to form long-lasting relationships with real estate agents
  • They lack support from family and friends
  • They have a rocky start to forming a home staging business and don’t feel that it is worth the effort
  • They don’t know where to start when it comes to finding the right insurance and financial support
  • Their career starts taking over their whole lives
  • They don’t know who to talk to about issues that occur in the business
  • They feel like no one understands the industry they work in

 

So how do you get around these challenges so that all of your time, effort and money makes you HAPPY and sure that your career change was the right choice?

Is there a system or “hack” that will give your efforts the support you deserve?

There is, and that’s exactly what this page is all about…

Professional Membership

Since leaving the world of academia and medicine behind and focusing instead on my true loves of design, property styling and real estate I have turned my life around.

I have established a very successful home staging company, designed and grown an online training program for other home stagers, and teach people how to renovate, write for a variety of media outlets including realestate.com, Interiors Addict and Reno Addict and have renovated numerous properties for myself and my clients that have achieved great financial gains.

In creating The International Institute of Home Staging I recognised that there are people out there just like you who are well and truly members of the home staging industry BUT lack the time and knowledge about how to form strong connections with other home stagers from all over Australia, and in fact around the world

So I got to work coming up with a way to help other home stagers come together to provide support, knowledge, experience and empathy for home stagers in Australia and the southern hemisphere.

When I started out in the home staging industry I felt an overwhelming amount of loneliness. I loved my job and the projects I was completing but I didn’t have anyone who knew the industry like I did to talk about it with.

So, when I created IIHS I remembered this and got to work developing a support network for others who may be in the same position.

I called it the Shine Membership

Here’s a sample of what you will get each month in your membership…

  • One Ask Me Anything live call that is recorded so you don’t have to worry about missing it if you are busy with other commitments
  • A monthly tool kit bursting with resources
  • Styling product spotlight
  • Business inspiration through amazing interviews with guests from a variety of backgrounds
  • Training Hacks delivered straight to your inbox
  • Option to have feature properties promoted on the IIHS™ site and social media (NEW!)
  • Option to have your work featured on the IIHS™ Houzz profile (NEW!)
  • Free listing on the IIHS™ staging directory and access to a member’s only forum
  • Access to the Shine Membership private Facebook page, AND
  • Discounts on IIHS™ events and products

Personally, I have not found anything anywhere else in the world with the same amount of content and support as the Shine Membership.

I mean it…

If You Aren’t a Shine Member You Don’t Have the Answers About Your Home Staging Questions That You Need

Not being part of the Shine Membership is like not getting to play with your friends at lunch time…

…In the Shine Membership you can chat with other home stagers about issues that only home stagers would understand.

At The International Institute of Home StagingTM, I’ve already done all the hard work, I’ve created the content, I’ve connected the dots and provided the service to create an amazing community.

Is There Anyone Who Would Tell Me Truthfully What They Think of the Shine Membership?

I have been an IIHS™ Shine member since July 2015, after attending the first Australian Home Staging conference in Sydney.  I was so impressed with what Naomi and the IIHS™ team had to say about this industry, the need for education, both initial & on-going as well as the importance of continual peer support, I just had to join.

In the Shine community I find myself surrounded by inspirational, like-minded business owners who motivate me to strive to heights I never imagined.  The non-combative, respectful nature of the membership means that there is no hesitation in posing a question or commenting on the issues faced by others. Being part of this membership is extremely important to both my business growth & my personal development.

Both the Private Facebook group and the live calls each month are without a doubt our biggest support.  To know that other business owners have similar experiences and issues in their business as we have in ours and that we are not alone in this, especially when understanding the intricacies of our industry, gives us confidence to continue.

The professional member badge, which we use on all correspondence, has proved invaluable to the growth of our business.  Our membership has seen us win jobs over other stylists, even when our quote was higher.  A resounding success for both our membership and the industry.

I am forever thankful that the IIHS™ team are so invested in the Home Staging industry in Australia and that they understand the need for an Australian based professional association.

Come and join us, you will not regret it!
