"I am a SUCCESSFUL Certified Staging Professsional...

Lesley King
CCSP®, Barrie

Q. Everyone's definition of success is different; what does being successful mean to you?

A. Success to me is being able to wake up every day and do what I really love to do.

Q. What do you feel is you or your company's biggest achievement since taking the CSP Course?

A. When I signed on with who is now one of the top #1 producing Real Estate teams in Canada as their exclusive Home Stager. I secured enough income plus potential income to fit my business goals for many years to come.

Q. What did you do before embarking on the life of a Certified Staging Professional?

A. Well over the course of many years, I have dabbled in jobs that have allowed me to practise and expand my creative abilities. Seventeen years ago- to this date, I embarked on a position in a full service dental laboratory as a Dental Ceramist, also a very creative and artistic job.

Q. What did your friends or family think about your decision of starting a staging business?

A. At the time- staging was unfamiliar to most of them. However, they knew I had a passion for design and being creative, so I had support all the way and continue to receive it unconditionally.

Q. If you could give advice to someone considering entering the staging industry what would it be?

A. If it’s truly their passion, then to go for it! And stick with it; because success does not happen overnight.

Q. If you could give advice to a Certified Staging Professional who hasn't quite made it to "success" yet, what would you tell them?

A. Continue to plug away. Do “something” stage related each day so that your mind is in the right frequency for what you would really want to be doing.

Q. What would you tell a potential student as the BEST thing about being a CSP is?

A. Being a CSP brings you confidence, security and continued support throughout your staging journey.

Several weeks ago I had the pleasure of being a trainee in CSP’s intensive three-day staging training workshop with Nairn Friemann in New York City…

I had heard great things about the organization by alumni as well as have had great discussions and assistance from Liz and Linda. They have always been there to answer any and all my questions, they are polite and super efficient…

Last year I enrolled in a staging program which was very widely advertised and cost a little less than the CSP 3 Day Course. You know that saying “You get what you pay for”…?

I don’t know where to start. It was a fantastic class; it was such a pleasure to meet Christine and Lynelle…It was a lot of information in 3 days! I am happy and thrilled that I took this class – Thanks to everbody for their help!! Sincerely, Mira B. Mississauga, ON
