What Level is Your Design Business?

Process Leads to Profits

Get clarity. Grow profits.

Trust me when I say you can do this.

I know because I’ve done it myself. I started out as what LuAnn Nigara calls a #BabyDesigner and quickly realized that billing hourly, collecting design fees on the back end of a project and dealing with unrealistic client expectations was a recipe for disaster.

I knew there had to be a better way, so—with the help of LuAnn’s lessons on the A Well-Designed Business® podcast—I figured it out.

Join me as I teach you about processes, partnerships, packages, and profits…as well as the “secret sauce” that has doubled my business in the last year.

LuAnn Nigara
Meet Sara Lynn Brennan


Sara is an award-winning entrepreneur and interior designer who has utilized lessons from the A Well-Designed Business® podcast to build Sara Lynn Brennan Interiors from the ground up—and deliver on her signature “Romantic Transitional” style. It is Sara’s mission to make design approachable by educating colleagues and clients about the intricacies of the process.

I’ve had tremendous success with implementing what I call the Four P’s of design: Processes, Partnerships, Packages, and Profits.

But the most exciting thing about all of it is that the “secret sauce” is something I can actually teach to YOU. With the right mindset, you too can enjoy the benefits of solid processes—if you’re coachable, open-minded and willing to take action.

  • How to define your passion, focus on your skills and create your own unique offerings
  • The power of automating and delegating…and how to get to the first paid interaction
  • How to narrow down the services that you offer, track your progress, pull together partnerships and know your value!
  • And much more…

Are you ready to do the work it takes to create systems that can streamline your processes, impress your clients and explode your profits? I thought so.
