It’s a new year and time for the really good clients to shows up … you know … the 6,000 sq. ft. new build AND they want you to see the whole project through!
That means architect/builder meetings to develop the plans, specifying all the finishes for the: 5 bathrooms, 4 fireplaces, indoor and outdoor kitchens, being the liaison between the contractor and owners during construction, and then … there’s the whole houseful of furniture, window coverings, art and accessories to be designed and purchased.
Sound like a dream job?
You bet! So what could be the problem?
- Do you know how to write a Letter of Agreement that covers the entire scope of the project so you land the whole job?
- Who are you going to ask to help – your designer friends who have never done it before?
Good Clients Great Money Mastermind Coaching, where you get the support to write that LOA and know that you got it right, feel confident, professional and prepared when you present to that new client.
So now what’s the problem?
- How much to charge for a job that big? Because if you call it out too low … you could be a design slave for 2 years. Or if you try to do it hourly and you will lose 35% to 45% AND there is a big chance that you won’t get to finish the job since the owner may decide that they’ve spent enough on construction overages and stop before the furniture is complete.
- How good are you at asking for $35K for yourself? Since the design fee on this type and size of job could be $35K or more! Think about it …. you know it’s far different than asking for $35K for a couple Baker cabinets.
Again, it’s joining the Good Clients Great Money Mastermind Coaching so I help you figure out what your offer and fee should really be, as well as be by your side through these scary (but exciting) parts or business.
