WELCOME TO SEASON 4 | EPISODE 19
RUNNING A SUCCESSFUL INTERIOR DESIGN BUSINESS
WITH ANDREW MITCHELL, THE DESIGN COACH
WHAT DOES AN INTERIOR DESIGNER DO?
There’s so much more involved with interior design than the public often sees. Interior designers have to run and manage a budget, frequently deal with multiple personalities from various stakeholders, and organise suppliers and trades for a seamless process.
IN THIS PODCAST WE ARE TALKING ABOUT
Andrew has been in the interior design industry for over 25 years and launched his business, Mr Mitchell, in November 2000. In the early stages of his interior design business, he struggled with the systems and administration involved when running a business. Through working with amazing clients in the residential, commercial and hospitality sectors and by bringing his “can do” attitude to every job, he has accomplished incredible results and success.
Andrew began his coaching business, The Design Coach, after he found a huge gap in the market for designers to receive support and learn how to create efficient and organised systems, work with different clients, and set up accurate methodologies for estimating fees to run a profitable business.
In this episode, Andrew takes us through what we should be looking out for when working with an interior designer, the problems his interior design clients come to him with, and the behind the scenes look into the business of an interior designer.
Andrew promotes transparency in all aspects of his interior design business to show the client the scope of work and calculate an accurate amount of time. Andrew teaches his clients within his coaching business how to set up fair and reasonable processes to ensure they’re running a profitable business and have fun doing it.
If you’re looking for an interior designer to do all the heavy lifting for you and make your next project enjoyable, Andrew is the best! Head over to Mr Mitchell to find out more about how you can work with him.
