If you are a product company, showroom or sales person in the interior design or any creative industry who finds it challenging to maintain consistent growth, you have landed on the right website!

The design market is changing at rapid-fire speed, and what seems like an innovative and fresh idea today can be old, discarded news tomorrow.  Many companies, large or small, haven’t learned and don’t have set in place a blueprint to allow the company to thrive on change.  Your company becomes static, set in place, and is well on its way to becoming irrelevant.  The challenges facing the design industry today require bold thinking, recognizing that change is needed, and the courage to implement those changes in your company.

There is a better way!  A new, innovative, bold way specifically researched and designed for the 21st century design market. That’s what I do.  I, along with my team, find the best way for each company I work with to achieve long-lasting, achievable strategies for growth.

There is lot a lot of business out there and I can show you how to secure it more easily and consistently with strategies that stick. These strategies are based on what works in any creative industry.

By following and implementing a focused, prepared, comprehensive plan structured specifically for your company, the possibilities for success are endless.

You may have even tried strategies that seem to work at first but are just not sticking. Your sales are up and down and you can’t seem to find the right path to consistently increase your sales revenues and profits. If you are a showroom or independent sales person, you may have thought  the answer was changing lines or getting more lines. Or if you are a showroom or manufacturer with sales people, maybe one of the solutions you tried was would simply be to hire someone else.

The right program and strategy, the right people, the right training and motivation = increased revenues and more importantly, increased PROFIT!



“Deborah always had great ideas and her approach was to think outside the box which really helped move Larsen forward”.
…Lori Weitzner (Lori Weitzner Designs)



SITUATION: Keleen was a 30 year old company whose sales had flat lined and had very little national brand recognition. They had recently launched with a major, high-end showroom on the West Coast and needed someone with a strong understanding of working with a multi-line showroom and how to gain recognition and navigate with waters.

There had also been little attention paid to the look and continuity of their collateral which deterred from brand recognition. The logos and fonts they were using did little to promote the beautiful, fashion forward product they offered while still meeting the expectations of the high-end clients who were their target market.

They had similar looking product that was becoming either obsolete or a sales splitter, which was wasting thousands of dollars in sampling costs.

They did not have a sales training program to teach sales people about how to sell it this product.
