I don’t think I’ve ever met an interior design professional who got into the industry to make money.
Most designers are like me — people who do what they do because they love design, color, and the opportunity to be creative. Our motivation comes from passion for the craft, rather than a desire to be rich.
The way I see it, money may be the reason some people become doctors, lawyers, or hedge fund managers, but not the reason anyone becomes an interior designer.
But here’s the problem: There can be a downside to doing what you love for the sheer joy of it. You can end up broke.
Is there a way to have it all . . . both the love and the money? I say yes, but not without help — and a willingness to work, invest wisely, and maybe learn a few new things.
