    Designers and retailers need to have their fingers on the consumer pulse. Do retailers need to branch out into new categories? Is e-commerce an essential in today’s environment? Does balancing hospitality, residential and more help a designer’s bottom line? Are there new business models retailers and designers should be keeping an eye on to ensure longevity in times of crisis? As part of Home Design Business Think Tank: Maximize Your Profitability! We’ll explore the facets of growing a successful interior design business and home furnishings retail as part of a series of four panels — from the categories and opportunities you should be considering to ways to make money outside of client interaction.

    TOUCH POINTS: Uncertainty creates longing … longing for familiarity, exploration, momentum, and progress. In TrendWatch’s TOUCH POINTS, tactility satisfies the senses, evokes positive memories, and awakens imagination. Vivid, earthy, and savory hues such as stone, clay, and sand; lush, ripen landscapes; tempting waters; exotic cuisine; patterned tiles and architectural details; cherished artifacts; unique accents; soothing and natural finishes; lustrous effects … these elements come together to define TOUCH POINTS, where experience and (at times) wistful nostalgia are shaping the next chapter in personal expression.

    Gail Doby, of Design Success University, discusses how to bring a fresh perspective to your business, and ensure a successful 2021. Assess where you are in your business now: Figure out where you are financially - how many months of reserves do you have? Analyze the types of clients you’ve been working with - are they ideal? Identify what you like and don’t like about your business. Determine if it is time for some team members to leave permanently. Decide if you want to scale back and rebuild differently. Now is the time to make the decisions that will protect the future of your business!

    Gail Doby is the Co-Founder and Chief Vision Officer of Gail Doby Coaching & Consulting and Design Success University. She drives the strategic vision for the company. Before starting this business, Gail had her own successful design firm. She knows firsthand the challenges and roadblocks faced by designers. And she loves helping designers master their business with stunning results.
