    104: Interior Design Tips: How to create a space that makes you happy w/ Jessica Velazquez

    104: Interior Design Tips: How to create a space that makes you happy w/ Jessica Velazquez

    This week's episode is an interview with interior designer, Jessica Velazquez.

    Jessica Velazquez studied Interior Design in Toronto, a field she combined with real estate when she returned to her native country of Panama. For years, Jessica was known as the realtor-designer by the many expats retiring there. Her background helped them envision the potential of properties and turn their investment into places they could call home. After relocating with her family to Calgary in 2011, she opened Interiors by Jessica, but it wasn´t until 2018 when her niche was born.

    Yes, she is an Interior Designer with real estate background, but she prefers the title of First-home Design Specialist because more than design and decorate, she coaches first-time homeowners to get rid of the limiting beliefs killing their home dreams. Jessica is all about empowering her first-time homeowners to take control of their environment with intention, to turn their Pinterest boards into reality based on their budget and timeline and regain the Design Confidence that so many lose on the way.

    In this episode we discuss:
    - where Jessica's passion for design comes from
    - how to find your interior design "style"
    - how to turn your Pinterest boards into reality
    - easy tips to make your space instantly better
    - do TVs belong in the bedroom?
    - her thoughts on the future of design post-COVID

    You can learn more about Jessica & services here: [http://www.interiorsbyjessica.ca/](http://www.interiorsbyjessica.ca/)
    She also has a free guide & resources above for first-time homeowners! ^

Fashion Week FOMO

I definitely experienced imposter syndrome last season when I attended with you guys which sucked so hard. But you’re right no one is watching your ever step judging you but the voice in your head. It’s important to identify that and also remind yourself out loud that girl you got this! Can’t wait to join you ladies in September. Great episode.

Resonates with all my current struggles

Listening to May 11 Podcast hit home. All the struggles I am currently experiencing as a new entrepreneur were touched on. I enjoy looking to the cards for some insight, so this approach was nice. Going to put more efforts into my dreamy passion projects & relax into some of the struggles... they’ll always be a part of being a business owner. Thank you.

I love this podcast because it’s raw and honest. It’s talks about so many important issues that affect many people, women especially. It’s also so refreshing to all these badass women CEOs featured regularly!
