7 Sensible Options to Choose From.

interior redesign training, interior design, redesign business training Anything You Can Imagine Can Become Real . . .

  • You just got a phone call requesting you to stage a home that's been on the market for 2 months with no offers. The home is a mess and the agent really needs you to stage it to sell. It's going to be a fun project.
  • The phone rings again. This time it is another agent who tells you the house you staged two days ago just got 2 offers for more than the asking price. You smile as you hang up the phone. What a good feeling.
  • Sunset has set and you just finished putting the last finishing touches on a home. You've been there for 6 hours moving furniture and rearranging the accessories for a great room. The client is beside herself with the fabulous transformation. She just gave you a bonus of $250 over your $750 fee because she is so thrilled. No one ever gave you a bonus on your last job. Sweet!
  • The living room you just finished turned out to be a gem. At first you were a bit perplexed, but then the solution hit you. Within 5 minutes the room took on a whole new look and your client was so happy she hugged you. That never happened on your last job when you worked for a low-end salary.
  • On the way home you decide to stop off at the mall and treat yourself. You slide up to the designer handbag section of Nordstrom's and pick out a new Prada. Or was it Gucci. You buy it without even looking at the price. Nice.
  • Your son brings in the mail. There, buried very obscurely in the junk mail, is the envelope from Expedia.Com with the two airline tickets to Paris. Just in time too. Your surprise trip for your husband and you is right around the corner. Tonight you'll light a fire, snuggle up to him and give him the tickets.
  • You're a bit sweaty. You're tired - but it's a good tired. You just transformed someone's home in one day to a beautiful showplace. You're almost as excited as your client. You almost feel guilty taking money for doing something you enjoy so much.

"My partner, Deborah, and I have been doing this for years and finally decided to get paid for it. We read your ebook and it has helped us launch a very successful redesign business. No one else in our area offers these services! It is really like getting paid to have fun! . . . we have created a "buzz" in our area (previously untapped market) and are desperately trying to keep up with the calls. Thank you for all your help! - Lisette Dell'Apa"

Testimonial #2
"I just wanted to write and let you know what an amazing wealth of information "Rearrange it!" has provided! . . . I ordered the book, with some trepidation at first . . . but your guarantee won me over, and now I wouldn't dream of asking for a refund!!!!! I learned so much about the direction to take with my business! THANK YOU! It is also incredibly inspirational to find someone who is so service and client driven! . . . Thank you for giving me the confidence to forge ahead with my dreams. Keep up the great work!" - Shelly Landry

Instead of Playing the Decorating Game, You Can Transcend It

What do I mean by that? Well, this. For over 40 years I have never dreaded Mondays. Work has never seemed like work. I thrive on what I do. It is the most satisfying and creative fun I have ever had. Whether I'm staging a home to sell or redesigning a home to be lived in, it is as thrilling and fun to me now as it was the very first day I started. Every day is new and different. Every day is filled with creativity, wonder and excitement. I cannot think of anything else in the world I'd rather be doing - and I almost feel guilty for being paid so handsomely for my time and expertise.

With many different options promoted on the web, from interior design schools, interior decorating books, redesign and staging seminars and so on, it can be hard to choose the route that's best for you.

That's why I've put together the most informative website you'll find so you can easily compare and know what you'll get (and won't get).

If you want to be a full service interior designer, you should get a degree. But if you want to start a decorating business that doesn't require 4 years in college, then you should start a "redesign business", otherwise known as "one day decorating, one day redecorating, interior redesign industry specialist, interior redesigner, interior arrangement specialist, home staging, house fluffing" and many other descriptions. Or start a "home staging business", helping owners who want to sell their homes.

Testimonial #3

"Well, if someone needs "proof" that this stuff works...it happened here folks! Barbara, as I mentioned the "whooper house" had been on the market 9 months and needed to sell in 5 weeks or the owner was going to loose her new house that is being built. In that 9 months, I did found out there had been one flimsy offer and financing didn't go through. I staged the home Friday afternoon getting it ready for the first of 5 open house Sundays. . . . Saturday afternoon an outside realtor unexpectedly called to see the house. Her clients were relatively sure they were going to put a bid on another house but were willing to look at one more house. The house wowed them and they wrote up a contract that afternoon on this house...!!!! UNBELIEVABLE.

Well, being a good realtor, Rosemary, held the open house today, as scheduled, and the owner received another offer!!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!! The bidding war is on!!! I am tickled pink! And hopefully, one of the offers will be just the right one to get the home sold. Just wanted to share, Candi Hutchison" (Silver Trainee)

Testimonial #4

"I can't tell you how impressed I am and I haven't even finished half of your materials. I look so forward to having my "Barbara" time everyday. I will always be so grateful that after researching which route to take in my training,  I found you first. Being in the Wedding industry for so many years and writing a certification course (approved by the state of California then going nationwide) I THOUGHT I WAS THOROUGH! You blow me out of the water. I will keep in touch. Thank you for just being you." - Tina Beene (Gold Trainee)

Why Should You Consider This Training, You Ask?

It's been tested for years, on the tree-lined streets of California, in the cramped brownstones of New York, on the dust-filled prairies of Kansas, in the cold, cold glacier-like hills of Vancouver, and in small towns everywhere and big cities all across the USA. It's been planted and pruned, watered and nurtured with yearly revisions and updates. I believe I've put together the ultimate training tutorials and courses for those of you who still walk on the un-chartered surfaces of the planet or surf the unknown seas of the internet.

Most people like my training for the least complicated reason in the world: It makes sense.

  • I provide by far the most complete, comprehensive, flexible, easy to understand, affordable redesign training and home staging training anywhere.
  • You can take a basic tutorial or a full blown comprehensive course, including valuable tools of the trade.
  • You can focus just on one business or do both home staging and interior redesign simultaneously (see my combo courses).
  • My training is thorough - no fluff - no cheap "fillers" thrown in to make it look like more than it is. I only offer what is crucial to success.
  • You can start immediately in the comfort of your home and learn at your pace - I was the first to offer that option - now others are trying to copy my lead!
  • I'm the only one to offer a "pay-as-you-train" option!
  • I require no certification (but I have programs available if you want  - CRS/CSS).
  • I don't require any previous design or business experience (though it is surely helpful) because my training is so easy to understand.
  • There are no expensive redesign seminars or home staging seminars to attend ever - never ever, ever. No interior redesign classes or home staging classes to attend ever!
  • You don't have to book a flight to train out of the area and risk the class being cancelled at the last minute.
  • You don't have to worry about instructors being unorganized, inept or unprofessional.
  • You don't have to worry about classmates being obnoxious, rude or over-powering.
  • You don't have to pay for a hotel/motel during training.
  • You don't have to belong to any interior redesign associations or home staging associations or pay a hefty annual fee for membership to anything.
  • You don't have to travel anywhere for redesign training or staging training but can learn everything on your computer or curled up in your favorite chair.
  • There are no assignments you have to complete, no quizzes, no tests, no deadlines, no waiting periods. What could be easier?
  • You don't have to pay some outrageous licensing fee of $6500 per year required from one of our competitors or $2500-3500 for seminars that promise more than they deliver.
  • You can call or write me at any time and I'll answer your questions the same day I get your inquiry. I'm easy to contact - very easy.
  • I provide 3 monthly newsletters to support you in your business, two on design and one on business - and I've got well over 250 free tips pages here and on my flagship website (Decorate-Redecorate.Com)
  • I publish 3 blogs daily: 1 decorating blog, 1 redesign blog, 1 staging blog.
  • You'll be trained by the interior redesign pioneer and home staging specialist on the West Coast since 1986 - someone who really knows the business inside and out - and trains more people than any other single trainer in the world.
  • You'll be able to run your business how you want to without an association or individual trying to control you afterwards or kicking you out for doing anything they don't like.
  • I've developed many of my own exclusive "tools of the trade" - which no one else has (but tries to mimic) - to help you build your business - things like slideshows, scripts, organizers, etc. (not pencils, notepads, measuring tapes and other filler).
  • I'm the only one who offers money back guarantees on my ebooks.

Our training is very affordable - don't take those high priced seminars or home study courses that are full of fluff and fillers, where they try to convince you that you can't be successful without them or that it's impossible to learn other than in a hands-on class environment!

Don't get fooled into believing you have to belong to an organization, or take their pricey seminars for $2500-3500 or become licensed by them at the tune of $6500 per year. That's pure nonsense! I've never fallen for that stuff and you shouldn't either.

And don't be fooled by ultra cheap ($6) electronic "books". They are really sales letters in disguise, with overly large text and large pictures. I've heard of one that is 10 pages of little more than a promotion for an expensive seminar. Save your money.

Don't take the high priced, unnecessary seminars and don't fall for the super cheap sales gimmicks posing as ebooks. I sell ebooks on this website, but they would print out at well over 140-220 pages on the average - jam packed with meaty, valuable training - all at a very affordable investment.

Ensure your reputation as an talented sort of person.

Hello, my name is Barbara Jennings.

I've been doing interior redesign and home staging since 1986 (over 20 years), long before it became popularized by Oprah Winfrey, HGTV, Decorating Cents or any other TV show.

I'm proud to be able to say I own the leading interior redesign/home staging training center in the world - America's most trusted - in part because my training programs are so thorough - and in part because they are so affordable.

If you're looking for the perfect home based business, where you can work from home, either part time or full time - be creative all day long - this is the business for you.

Start Now Before Your Best Friend or Neighbor Does!

Interior redesign and home staging are still ground floor opportunities - but it won't always be that way. It's a lucrative, fun business opportunity - but those that start early have the best chance for success. Everyone wants to redecorate some time. Most people seek to sell or buy a home sometime. Earn what you are worth, at last! Don't take those overpriced seminars and home study courses averaging $2500-3500 just for training!

Please take the time to read all of the information I provide so you can make an informed decision. Your future depends on it. Have you got what it takes? Keep reading. And if you still have questions, I'll be delighted to answer them for you. If you call me, you'll often find it's me who answers the phone, because I want to make sure every student has easy access to me.

Testimonial #5
"Hi Barbara, I have been passionate about home redesign for 4 years and after completing your training I was able to become a sought after home stager in addition to redesign. Miracles Happen!

I am now privledged to work with successful real estate agents in my area. I have an ulterior motive. What is it? To lift my clients spirits and help them provide a beautiful enviornment that is pleasing for personal use or a top dollar sale of their property. Thank you Barbara for helping craft my talent into a profession that offers service to others in a tangible way.

As a side benefit of being trained by the best, I will have an article appearing in a magazine next month and have been listed as the home stager referred and selected by some of the most prominent real estate agents in my area (San Luis Obispo, California). All this is a direct result of your training. - Maria Skellie"

Testimonial #6
"Barbara, your Gold Staging Course was so thorough it blew me away. I can't believe that I almost signed up for an expensive seminar to learn this business. I've already got two realtors interested and an appointment with a third lined up. On top of that, one realtor gave me a great referral for my redesign services. I'm so grateful I found your website. - Candace Wallace"

"Barb, I just couldn't wait to tell you how excited and ecstatic I was to receive all of you're e-books and printed books.  They  were sensational; easy to read and understand, filled with personal stories and experiences, and full of valuable information.  Most of all the personal support I received everytime I called.  You were always there.  Thanks for brightening up my world with you're redesign and decorating techniques.

7 - SILVER*** COMBO "TRAINING-ONLY" OPTION FOR BOTH BUSINESSES - * Popular Choice for Both Businesses -

Comprehensive Interior Redesign and Home Staging Training-Only Course
(All Our Training All at Once/No Tools of the Trade Included)

If you're interested in just our training ebooks/manuals in one convenient course that will teach you both businesses, consider the Silver Redesign/Staging Training Course. You'll get all of our design training, and both the basic and advanced redesign business manuals, plus the basic home staging tutorial manual, plus you'll get one design manual free and save on your shipping charges. This course does not include any tools of the trade, certification or directory listing (included in Gold & Diamond Courses only). Click on the link above for details.

* Choose your emphasis: interior redesign or home staging. The interior redesign emphasis includes minor training in home staging, but it is quite basic. The home staging emphasis does not include redesign due to the complexity of home staging.

Home Staging for Profit is trainly solely for the home staging career and is far, far more comprehensive than any aspect included in Rearrange It and probably the better choice if you really want to excell in home staging, but each person must make that decision for themselves. We stopped giving advice because we have no way of knowing what you already know and what you don't. Yes, there is overlap on the business, marketing and publicizing of each business. I suggest you re-read the content of each tutorial and make the decision that seems best for you, or get both tutorials and do both businesses. You'll make more money since they are so closely related.

If you want to do both businesses, choose one package and then add the basic tutorial of the other business to your package from our "Bronze Program" above.

The Basic Redesign Tutorial is called Rearrange It! and the Basic Home Staging Tutorial is called Home Staging for Profit.

Everything you can imagine is real - that's where it starts!

Well, there you have it in a nutshell. Choose any of the options above and you'll get all the details I could think of to give you in advance, and maybe even a few you didn't need to know. I don't want anyone to select an option without getting full disclosure on what they are getting. That's another thing. You won't find any other trainer in the world who gives you the amount of up-front detail that I give. That's because I have nothing to hide. Nothing. And it's because I run a very thorough, honest training center. You deserve all the information you can get to make the decision best for you. I understand that.

So please do read everything I am sharing with you before you make your final decision.

Warm regards,

Barbara Jennings

Too Few Women at the Top says Orange County Register

A lengthy article in Orange County's leading newspaper (February 10, 2006) states that women only hold 8.2% of the executive positions in California, only 11.4% of the corporate board positions. In addition, the survey sites that more than 2/3rds of the top 200 companies have no female executive officers at all. Only 6 of the 200 companies have a female CEO. This, inspite of the fact that women comprise 46% of the work force and hold 1/2 of all managerial positions.

So why do female faces rarely appear behind an executive desk and why are their voices seldom heard in corporate boardrooms? And we've known for a very long time that women get paid about 27% lower wages than men get paid for doing the exact same job.

Let's face it. Men are in charge and they are a closely aligned group that will always try to keep it the way it is. So a woman's best chance for true success lies in becoming the CEO of her OWN company!

P.S. By the way, I'm the only redesign/home staging trainer that offers you a way to buy just what you want and pay for what you get as you go. And I'm the only one that let's you get some of the training with a full 30-day money back guarantee. That alone, makes me really unique and explains why my programs are so popular. Now it's time you choose one of the  options above and read all about what is offered. Below you'll also see some easy comparison pages to help you evaluate one option against another. And you can always call me too. I'm more than happy to answer your questions, Monday-Friday, 9:00-5:00 PST (unless I'm redesigning or staging a client's home).

You Owe It to Yourself to Weed Out the Fluff and Puff Programs!

Some charge hundreds of dollars, then fill up half their "training package" with stuff like pencils, notepads, measuring tapes, shopping bags, hoping you won't notice the "fillers" they added to make it look like you were getting a lot of stuff. I'm betting you already have a pencil. You probably also have a notepad close by too. You can get a measuring tape at the local hardware store for a few dollars. You can get all that filler stuff on your own and you probably already have most of it anyway.

So why pay someone else $800 for a course that consists of things you already own or that takes a full year to complete with lots of assignments and tests you have to complete and submit? I only put tools and manuals in your hands that you won't find anywhere else (like at your hardware store or at Staples). I only include the things you really need and can't get on your own. I'm a hard core trainer who has spent the last 4 years creating and developing the most comprehensive, all-inclusive training and tools you'll find on the market for the money. No one else in the world has invested that kind of time and effort into developing a rock-solid training program. And if they had, they'd be charging you thousands of dollars for it. But don't take my word for it. Read what some of our trainees have said about what they received from me.
