Short, But Sweet (And Full)

February Webinar
SuperInterns.com to the Rescue! How to Grow Your Interior Design Business with Virtual Interns with Julie Braun

Do any of these sound like you?
  • You're the receptionist, the accountant, the secretary - oh yeah, and the stager or designer! How can you get it all done?
  • You'd love to have more clients, but how in the heck would you have the time for them?
  • You feel like you're not running your business - it's running you!
  • Your family time is . . . well, what family time?
If this just sounds all too familiar, you'll want to hear what Julie has to say about using interns to help you take your business to exactly where you want it to be! You won't believe what she has to say!

And what's even better is that the webinar is free for ADE members! Not a member? You can still attend for only $24.95!

So join us Tuesday February 9th from 7-8 pm ET. You can click on the link below or simply reply to this email and we'll get you set up.

Have you read Kimberly Merritt's blog post?

We're big fans of ADE approved Trainer (and founding member) Kimberly Merritt's blog. And we really are a sucker for Valentine's Day . . . even when it means we get to buy our own candy! And it's really so much more than candy hearts and pretty flowers that will be gone in a week. Kimberly says it so beautifully in A Jar Full of Memories. Enjoy!

Happy Valentine's Day! May it be filled with sweetness!
