Being honest: Is a lack of self-confidence getting in the way of your business growth? If any part of you says yes, this course may be just what you need.

Join me as I teach you to confidently market and sell your services, to attract better projects, and to get comfortable with creating bigger profit. If you’ve ever said that you wanted to be more confident as a business owner, this is your opportunity!

Meet Desi Creswell

Desi Creswell is a Certified Life and Business Coach who helps interior designers intentionally create more profit, freedom, and fulfillment. An awarding-winning interior designer herself, Desi is uniquely equipped to empower her clients with an essential blend of industry specific expertise and mindset coaching.

Self-confidence is a skill that you can learn and cultivate.

It’s not something you’re born with or without—but no one teaches us that. This is an opportunity to become the next best version of you—the version that will exponentially impact your business AND your personal life.

If you find yourself letting other people or external circumstances lead your business instead of confidently deciding what you want for yourself, this class could make all the difference. If you don’t trust yourself to follow through on your big vision—and you always scale back to that “comfortable” place, this may be just what you need.

  • Stop talking about wanting more confidence and learn to start creating it
  • Develop the skill of self-confidence that has allowed my 1:1 clients to double, triple, and even quadruple their annual revenue
  • Gain the mindset tools to continue to foster this skill long after the course is complete
  • Utilize a blend of easy-to-implement strategies and mindset tools to continue to foster this skill long after the course is complete
  • And much more…
