Meet Bianca! The newest addition to the Foxy Styling Team and an absolute bundle of enthusiasm! Before joining us back in May 2021, Bianca (or B as we like to call her) used to be a Property Stylist for another Home-Staging company here in Brisbane. Writing this article has given us a unique opportunity to reflect and compare her experiences in two different styling companies. It was a very insightful chat and I’m sure you will find it interesting as well, so without any further ado – here’s the story of our powerhouse - Bianca. [...]

Home-Staging Consultations | Step by Step

By |2021-08-27T12:49:38+10:00August 27th, 2021|Business of Staging|

Every Home-Staging business owner has their own unique internal process when it comes to organising their workflow. For most of us, a consultation with the vendor is usually the very first step. There are many different ways you can approach a consultation from the business point of view, and we are not here to preach what is right or wrong. The method we have instilled in our business has worked really well for us, so we’ve decided to share our entire Consultation Process with the hope to help other Home Stagers. We sincerely hope that you can get some [...]

Stylist Spotlight | Meet Cassie

By |2021-08-16T17:31:55+10:00August 16th, 2021|Behind The Scenes, Business of Staging|

Meet Cassie! Meet Cassie, our longest employee! Her signature smile (seriously, have you seen how white her teeth are?!), kind nature and organised work ethic will make you fall in love with her faster than she can say “Cuuuuuuute!”. Which, if you ask anyone at Foxy, she says all the time. Cass divides her styling career into “pre-P” and “post-P” times, with “P” being her adorable baby girl Penelope, who is just so… what’s the word I’m looking for… cuuuuuuuute! Cassie is now back in a part-time capacity at 3 days a week, which Cam [...]

By |2021-08-12T12:12:24+10:00August 10th, 2021|Behind The Scenes, Business of Staging|

Oh my goodness, I can’t believe it has been 12 months since I started working at Foxy! Time flies when you’re having fun! Or when you’re in a lockdown unable to do much else… or in my case… both! Just a heads up, this article is not going to be one of the professional, well-structured blog posts you are used to. Oh no, quite the opposite. It’s 4.15pm as I’m typing this and I’m leaning all the way back in my chair, left foot on the desk, left arm elbow-deep in a bag of sweet potato chips, occasionally wiping [...]

Five Golden Agents – A Simple Idea to Earn a Living as a Home Stager

By |2021-07-23T14:20:13+10:00July 23rd, 2021|Business of Staging|

Quick Intro: Hey guys, Eva here! I was scrolling through Jake's LinkedIn and came across this awesome article he wrote back in May 2020. I couldn't help but notice that it somehow hasn't found its way onto our website yet, so I've decided to fix it. It's a great read full of golden nuggets (pun intended). I'd recommend it to any Home-Stager regardless of what stage of your business journey are you currently in. Enjoy! To be a successful home stager you don’t need thousands. You don’t need thousands of clients, you don’t need thousands of followers [...]

Working ON vs. IN Your Home-Staging Business + 5 Tips for Finding the Right Balance

By |2021-07-15T11:47:11+10:00July 15th, 2021|Business of Staging|

One of the most difficult battles we encounter as entrepreneurs is striking the right balance between ‘working ON the business’ and ‘working IN the business’. Growth of the company should always be the primary focus, however, without cash flow from everyday operations, the company can never hope to grow. Mastering this balancing act requires tremendous amounts of focus, strong self-discipline, and unwavering patience. What is the ideal ratio? Finding the right ratio of how much time should you spend working ON vs IN your business is subjective and the answer will be different for everyone. Defining the [...]

Our Selection Process From Start to Finish | + FREE Downloadables

By |2021-05-21T15:42:25+10:00May 21st, 2021|Behind The Scenes, Business of Staging|

Not sure if other Property Stylists can relate to this, but we get this all the time: “Oh my gosh, you work for a Home-Staging company, that must be such a fun and easy job!”  Fun – yes! 100%! It is a lot of fun and we love the creative aspect of it, BUT… it is by no means easy. Most people don’t get to see the volume of work going on behind the scenes and just how much thinking, strategic planning and scheduling needs to happen to make their homes ready for a successful sale. Home Staging is [...]

What’s the Hidden Business Behind Your Business?

By |2021-05-17T16:18:43+10:00May 17th, 2021|Business of Staging|

Every business that’s achieved huge scale has another business powering it behind the scenes. And that back-end business often looks very different from its public-facing side. A great example is Rent The Runway, a business that lets customers rent a single dress for a special occasion to create a kind of “closet in the cloud”. From the outside, this is a business of fashion and glamour. But underneath that exterior, is the largest dry cleaning business in the world. That part of the business could have been outsourced, but they knew the service was so critical, it was not only worth [...]
