Dreaming of Starting Your Own Home Staging Business?

Staging Diva Home Staging Courses

Established in 2004, Staging Diva® is one of the most respected names in home staging training, with over 4000 students worldwide.

Whether you are already established, or just thinking of starting a home staging, or house fluffing business, you’ll find training courses and a growing list of other tools to help you here.

There is even one-on-one advice by phone directly with the Staging Diva herself, Debra Gould, for when you get stuck on a project or don’t know what to do next with your business.

What Makes Staging Diva Courses Unique

Home Staging Expert Debra Gould

Debra Gould, The Staging Diva has spent over 25 years in marketing. This expertise, combined with what she knows about running her staging company Six Elements, makes her courses uniquely practical.

This specialized program created by home staging expert Debra Gould, is the only program in the world taught by someone with an MBA in Marketing who has personally grown a successful home staging business.

Unlike any other program, the focus is on how to start and grow your money-making home staging business. The assumption is that you have some natural decorating talent but you don’t know how to make that into a real business and all that this involves.

Debra Gould has supported herself and her family as an entrepreneur since 1989.

The Staging Diva program is not filled with untested theories. It is real-world stuff that will show you exactly what you need to do to start and grow your own home staging business.

From personal experience, Debra Gould knows what it’s like to be terrified and move forward anyway. She candidly shares her secrets for success so you can get started with greater confidence.

Learn How to Build Your Business From Home With Little Money

Unlike other programs that will have you spending money on newspaper ads and door-to-door flyers, in the Staging Diva Home Staging Training Program, you’ll learn low- and no-cost ways to build your business way more effectively.

Debra Gould on HGTVIt’s no accident that within two years of launching Six Elements, Debra Gould was already featured in the Wall Street Journal, HGTV, MoneySense and CNNMoney! You will learn how to become the home staging expert in your area and how to attract free media attention. These will do much more for your business than buying ads.

rave review for Staging Diva

"This training program was the wisest investment I ever made. This is practical, no-nonsense information on what you need to start your own business. You will leave the Staging Diva Program with a written road map to guide your success." Jody Thulin, Sharp Dressed Homes

You’ll also learn how to run your home staging business without having to invest in any inventory. There are tons of home stagers who have failed because they couldn’t cover their overhead. When you follow what the Staging Diva Program advises, you’ll avoid this trap.

Juggling Staging with Kids or a Full-Time Job

It takes some effort to build a new business while being there for your family. That’s one reason single parent Debra Gould went into home staging in the first place. It offers the flexibility to be there before and after school everyday because you can book your client appointments around your other needs!

The Staging Diva courses will teach you how to start your staging business on the side if you want to, whether it’s because your kids are little or you have another full time job you aren’t ready to leave.

There is total flexibility in the Staging Diva’s approach to starting and growing a home staging business, so you don’t feel like you are taking a scary leap into the deep end without knowing how to swim! Debra Gould will guide you step-by-step through how to create a business that doesn’t waste your time and lets you grow into it.
