    Welcome To The Naked Truth

    Welcome To The Naked Truth

    Welcome to The Naked Truth – I’m super excited!  This has been on my bucket list for soooo long and finally, the time has come. 
    I’m Claire Jefford, a certified & award-winning Interior Decorator, business coach, vlogger & speaker. I’m here to bring you THE NAKED TRUTH about running a successful ID business. Here we will have real conversations about the multitude of topics & situations that affect your business and our industry every day…but these will be conversations that we don’t often hear discussed within a public forum. More on that in just a minute.
    First, if you already know me, you may know me from either my YouTube coaching channel – Claire Jefford. Or perhaps you saw me speak at a Design event or you may be part of my private Facebook Group - Interior Design Business Strategies. IDBS – where there is no BS.
    A lot of the discussions that we have in my private group of over 4000 interior designers, decorators, and stagers from all across the globe, are similar to the discussions I will be having here, out in the open on THE NAKED TRUTH – TNT the podcast. Bringing you dynamite Claire-ity for your interior design business.
    I will be speaking with design professionals just like you and maybe even speaking with you too in future episodes as The Naked Truth evolves. Let’s face it, without you, your stories and your willingness to share, this podcast would not be possible.
    Some of these conversations will take place as ‘roundtable’ style discussions. Who doesn’t freakin’ love roundtables?!  The magic that happens during open talks at roundtables is the most exciting, the most exhilarating and the most highly anticipated part of many events and conferences.
    The roundtables are where the nitty-gritty questions are asked and answered by speakers and participants. The roundtables are where real stories & actual experiences are shared. It’s where we look at one another and can truly empathize with a situation or feeling, shouting, ‘Yes! Yes! I’ve been there too!’
    This is my goal for THE NAKED TRUTH podcast and it aligns perfectly with the reasons behind: why I started my coaching business; why I created my private FB group & why I speak at events & coach designers all across the world. I get the opportunity to connect with you directly and remind you that you are not alone in this…not at all. When we share real-life experiences and stories of real situations we come up against in running an interior design business, we come together as a supportive community. Collaboration over competition is something I believe in 100%.
    Consider this podcast as an extension of my YouTube channel and my FB group. All of the content I share across these platforms are focused to help you gain more confidence and a better understanding of how to run a successful design business, so be sure you follow me over on YT –search Claire Jefford and be a part of my amazing tribe over on FB – search Interior Design Business Strategies.
    I’ve been in the interior design business for nearly 10 years.  I graduated as a Certified Interior Decorator and thought that starting my own business was going to be so much fun! The problem was, despite having a certification; I had no idea what I was doing in terms of running a business!  I started ‘Creating Contrast Designs’ (this was the name of my business for 6 years before moving under one umbrella as Claire Jefford in 2017 and now Claire Jefford Inc in 2019)
    And let me tell you, I was going at it blind my friends. I had very little clue as to what I was doing. Does that resonate with you at all? Hmm? Maybe just a little?
    Here’s a little bit of background for you on my journey in life so far and how I came to be where I am today.
    I grew up just outside Toronto, Ontario in the beautiful city of Burlington. My parents divorced when I was 10 years old.
