Earlier this year at the Las Vegas market, I had the pleasure of meeting LuAnn Nigara, the host of a ‘Well Designed Business Podcast’. If you are familiar with the podcast, you already know how fabulous LuAnn is!
What I especially love about the way LuAnn conducts her interviews with guests on her show, is how she asks the hard hitting questions that we all want to ask. She’s so great at taking a step back to fully understand the scope of any issue or topic, before digging deeper to find out more.
I was so excited when I got the request to be a guest on her show!
LuAnn’s podcast focuses on many aspects of the business side of interior design (hence the name of the show AND another reason why I love her so!).
While we obviously discussed business strategies & marketing during my interview, it will probably come as no suprise to you that our conversation had a great deal of focus around video and how it’s been invaluable to growing my business.
