Invaluable Design Business Info!!! And she’s fun too!!
LuAnn is a total business rockstar. I came across this podcast just by searching for ID podcasts & this popped up. I gave it a try & have been binging it ever since!! I am a second career Interior Designer that recently completed my degree, but I don’t have much business experience under my belt, having come from a background of hospitality/customer service. LuAnn is not afraid to ask difficult questions & even ask again if it still may not be clear to her or her audience. 💗 Her connections feel genuine & the delivery is anything but dry! Lots of laughs & smiles to be had while listening. Thanks LuAnn for your contributions to our businesses & the industry. Your loyal listener, Melissa.
