Services & Resources

From Coaching to Forms…we have it all…new resources added frequently.





Sometimes you just need someone to validate your ideas or vent to, someone who has been there and done that.  Our mentoring packages begin with a complimentary 15 minute Discovery call.  Our discussion may focus on an actual project, marketing ideas for your business, analyzing your online presence, creating content, scaling your business, or whatever you need to discuss. 

After your Discovery call, you can decide if you want more time from a 30 minute session for only $99 or larger packages we can build specific to your needs.  The more time you purchase, the lower the hourly fee.

Schedule your Complimentary Discovery call by emailing and put Discovery Call in the Subject line or text 814-440-3044.  If you don’t hear back within 24 hours, please text in case your email got ate by the Spam Monster.

    Content is queen.  One of the first steps in growing your business crediblity is to seed the Internet with content that validates your expertise.  In other words, if a potential client met you at a networking event, then went home and Googled you…what would they find?  Will they be directed to your blog and social media filled with great articles about color, decorating and/or staging that makes them know, like, and trust you? 

    Perhaps your local Junior League has invited you to speak…but you have no idea what to say.  We can help.  Some of the things we can provide you include:

    • Consumer presentations
    • Social media
    • Magazine articles
    • Blog posts
    • Seminars or classes
    • Video Scripts


    Where do I find a client intake form to send to my client?  Is there a Consultation process I should follow?  What about a letter of agreement or scope of services form? Whatever you need, chances are we can help.  Each package comes with a PDF and Word/Excel version so you can personalize to your business.


    • Business in a Box
    • Confident Consultation Kit
    • Staging Letter of Agreement 
    • Decorating Letter of Agreement
    • e-Design Letter of Agreement 
    • Social Media Calendar
    • Marketing Calendar
    A Word

    from How to Decorate & Stage (HTDAS) Founder

    Many years ago, I was just like you.  I loved creating beautiful rooms but I didn’t have an education or mentors.  But I was young and crazy…so I jumped in and thought of ways I could actually get into houses…legally.

    I got my Realtor License and began a wallpapering and painting business…all the while sharing decorating ideas with my clients. Eventually, they began calling me again.  After mentioning I was the sloppiest painter they had ever met…they also mentioned they loved my creative ideas.  They asked if I would come and help them with a decorating project…if I promised not to paint.

    Here I am 4 decades later, still creating beautiful rooms and teaching others how to do the same.
