Earlier this week, I spent two days soaking up the brilliance of Tobi Fairley. Now, if you haven’t heard of her, and you’re an interior design enthusiast at all, I can assure you that you’ve seen some of her work. In fact, HERE is her press page for you to peruse and drool over – click the most recent Traditional Home cover (April 2014) and it will take you directly to the gorgeous interiors she designed.
Okay, while I could sing her design praises until my voice was hoarse, the reason I spent two days with her was specifically for the business side of running an interior design firm. Now, don’t get me wrong, I can hold my own pretty well – I’ve had two previous careers running highly profitable multi million dollar entities, but this woman specifically addresses our industry. Tobi “walks the talk”, and seriously rocks the business of luxury interior design.
This was me & Tobi. I was thinking “WOW, this chick rocks.”
Seriously, this woman is as beautiful inside as she is outside. Her mind for business is as strong as her bold designs. Her humility and willingness to share and encourage other designers was refreshing.
If you’re in my industry, and want more insight as to what this 2 day experience was like, please contact me and I’ll happily share. These people put on the best run event I’ve been to in a LONG time.
Oh, and of course I can’t forget (or Tobi would reach through this blog post and smack me), if YOU are in the market for interior design services, whether you’re in the Dallas area or outside (yes, we do travel), please contact us soon!
