Sheron Cardin's Input...: You Can't Win If You Don't Play The Game!

I have been an interior designer for over 27 years and I have always taught my clients the principles I used while decorating their home so they may enjoy decorating too. The home staging trend in residential real estate is a great way to reach more people every day and what I enjoy the most is they are learning the basics of good design through staging. It is my dream for every person to know the joy and pride of living in a decorated home.

You Can't Win If You Don't Play The Game!

Stager IdolHey fellow stagers...just cruising the Before and After group, and I see dozens of rooms that look like real winners to me. I do not know who has submitted their photo's to Stager Idol but I do know that if you don't enter, you cannot win and you may very well regret it.

You know who I am talking about...I am talking about YOU!

What will you feel like when you see the winner of Stager Idol and you know you have done better and have better photo's to prove it!

If you don't think your work is good enough you are wrong. Each and every one of AR's stagers are in the business to win and Stager Idol is an ideal way to market yourself, be seen, be appreciated, be acknowledged. How boring would American Idol be if no one entered except for the winner? The whole world knows the top 10 and they have all gone onto solid careers because they took a chance.

It will be another year before the next Stager Idol competition so don't wait another minute. The prizes are just a benefit to strive for but what really counts is that you will learn about yourself. You will build your courage and your confidence in your work which is far reaching in one's career.

If you only have one before and after shot of a room that you absolutely love...then submit it. That is all that it takes. You do not need to submit 10, 20, 30 shots. It only takes one set of before and after pictures of your favorite job to win the competition.

You need to trust me when I say you have a really good chance of taking home the whole enchilada!  HURRY HURRY HURRY! Revisit STAGER IDOL, review the rules and then submit your best work for an occupied home or a vacant.

If you have any questions or doubts, please contact me to see if I can get you going. There are just a couple of days left to enter. It is easy and a very small investment can take you all the way to the top! 


Namaste

Me too Melissa - if I see a magazine on the racks that says Before and Afters, I buy it!

I know there are so many groups in AR that get lost and I think it is important to at least know all the staging groups and have posted them here for your quick reference...

Home Stager's - where to post and why.
