891: Power Talk Friday: Judy Brower Fancher: Selecting the Right Art Can Grow Your Client Base, Your Quality Results, and Your Profit

Today With Judy Brower Fancher:

Welcome to a Well-Designed Business. It’s Power Talk Friday. Today I am joined by Judy Brower Fancher, of Brower, Miller & Cole Art Consulting. Judy is certified in interior design, and while she isn’t currently working as one, she knows that most interior designers are not trained, nor confident, in selecting art for their clients. Judy is here to help my audience understand that buying those color Xeroxes is never the answer, and some tangible tips for those unfamiliar with the art world.

[42:12] How the relationship works between the designer and an art consultant.
