We're Just a Bunch of 'Head- Bangers'...The SIF Week in Review July 6-12, 2008

By
Home Stager

Sometimes we all feel like in promoting and actually doing our staging work, we are banging our heads against the wall.  We ask ourselves why we understand the what and why of staging when so many others take so much longer to get it.  Or don't at all.

This was a week where there seemed to be a lot of 'Head-banging' going on. Such As:

I KNOW It's a DINING Room, But... by Julia Maher

Come On In, The Water's Fine!??? by Julia Maher

Vacant and Empty...that's a good thing??? by Ginger Foust

Why trade my dirty carpet for your dirty carpet? A little bit of history. by Terrylynn Fisher

My Name is Mud by Ana Hitzel

Why would a Developer choose to forego.....(a bit of a rant) by Connie Tebyani

But, take heart, stagers!   There is proof that people are getting it!  They are looking to us for our expertise - or at least admitting we have some!  The proof is here in SIF that they are starting to bang their heads right along with us:

Stagers - I need your professional advice! by Michelle Hall

Help with the house next door. ....My reputation as an Estate Specialist is getting around by Virginia Tatseos

Emergency Staging: No consultation, no accessories, no notice!  (Members Only) by Lisa Roy

So, I encourage you to continue banging your heads, but with a new perspective...Rock on and the world will eventually join the party!

Hello Kimberly, as always just cannot thank you and Yvonne enough for putting this together each week.  I so love to keep up on what is going on in the staging world but when things get and stay busy your recap is vital for us all.

Good for you Kimberly for making time for the family.  Is your daughter at all design oriented?  Had you considered including her in your workday, especially during the summer or is that opening up another can of worms? 

I have to admit that sometimes I use my work as an excuse to escape from the family, bad me, but we all need that outlet and a break from time to time.

Thank you Kim! Now my headache is beginning to go away. It helps to know that running into that wall one more time is not likely to be devastating and may even be productive. Now that makes me feel better. Way to go!
