Learn how Faith navigated the process of selling her business and discover the key factors that contributed to her success.

LuAnn Nigara and Faith Fix’s Ah-Ha Moments

“You are the essence of the point of my podcast—it’s that your talent alone is not going to be the indicator of your ability to grow and have a successful design firm, it’s the business back end, that is going to be, you know, the biggest indicator of that and the talent and the other things can layer in.” – LuAnn Nigara

“I realized early on that I was growing kind of a larger firm than typical, I wasn’t solo with just a few designers. And so I started thinking about succession planning, probably 10 years ago, just to little seeds of what’s going to happen.” – Faith Fix
