Like many aspiring entrepreneurs, even though Amuradha Rathore of Wisconsin had always wanted to start her own business, she didn’t know where to start. A public relations consultant working full time as a banker, she truly enjoyed her career but she had a nagging feeling that could only be described as creative discontentment. However, with the poor economy and uncertainty of job security she was reluctant to give up her job to start a business.
When Amuradha discovered StagingDiva.com she realized that starting a home staging business was exactly what she needed to do, after all, she’d been helping friends and family decorate their homes for years.
Amuradha combined her talent and flair for decorating with her education, experience and what she learned in the Staging Diva Home Staging Training Program to start her own home staging business, Nine Dimensions. Her home staging business serves as a financial safety net and she also gets a tremendous sense of creative freedom which helps her enjoy her full time job even more.
Debra Gould, author of the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program says, “Not everyone who has the desire to start a home staging business has the luxury of quitting their full time job to do so. There are many people out there who enjoy their day jobs but feel they’d like to use a staging business as a sort of creative outlet while they continue to work full time. The good news is, it’s very possible to have a successful part-time home staging business that operates alongside a full time job and Staging Diva Graduates like Amuradha are proving it.”
About her home staging training, Amuradha writes, “As of now, I am working full time, raising my family and running my own business and it’s possible because I love my job, my business is my hobby and my family keeps me going. Home staging has helped me turn my passion and talent for decorating into a real business and Staging Diva, Debra Gould made it happen.”
Gould reminds home stagers that it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. She says, “You can keep your job and work at your home staging business on the side and have a very satisfying life!
