I am so grateful I found Cindy’s show a few months ago! Each time a new episode drops I have some many takeaways!! Thank you Cindy for all you do 🤍!!

Must listen for any stager - new or tenured!

My fiancé purchased a home staging business right after we met (mid sized, 8k sqft warehouse, 3 employees).
He came from an investment banking background and had noooo experience with home staging. I came from a sales operations background and also had no experience in home staging when I joined the business a few months back. We were in over our head.
Cindy has been an amazing resource to help us learn and grow with this business. I love that she has guests on from across the world to speak on exciting new topics and their expertise. It’s really helped me learn, grow, and challenge ourselves in our business. I’m currently saving up money to take some of her courses and I can’t wait!!
I love hearing her voice through my speakers (though if you listen she will say she hates he voice- stop it Cindy you’re an angel!) because I feels like I’m listening to a familiar friend help me improve my business and life. Cindy holds nothing back, she wants your business to succeed and provides interesting topics to help you do so!

Never stop Cindy! These podcasts are helping people like me grow (what I like to call) our mini home staging empire! I aspire to be a guest speaker on your podcast (in 10 years after I gain more experience!!)

I can’t thank you enough Cindy! If you’re ever in the Chicago area- we would love to connect with you and properly thank you for all the great advice to help better our business. Keep being amazing!!
