Home stagers... I didn't want to make a big stink about this, but I am thrilled to announce another staging training & certification course is now available to you.
While I know you all are well trained staging professionals and have already worked hard at learning the foundational basics in the business and art of home staging, I also know many of you still feel grossly inadequate and under-trained.
I've read your posts that tell the tales of how your competition rubs your nose in the fact that they believe they are better educated then you... ESPECIALLY when it comes to the skillful use and application of Raffia.
Well, your worries are over...
I am happy to announce I have been sought out by the British Academy of Staging Training & Raffia Design (B.A.S.T.R.D.) to be trained, certified and then bring back to you their famed ARSE approach to home staging.
Last weekend, I am happy to say, the B.A.S.T.R.D.s flew me over to jolly old England for an intensive training program to learn MILLIONS of ways professional home stagers can use Raffia to beautifully and cheaply transform their client's properties. There was so much to learn in this grueling 3 day wonder workshop. Who would have thought you could create so much out of a shriveled smelly dead weed?
But even though I am sooooo pooped out, I was just too excited and wanted to share with you that I am now a Master BASTRD ARSE (MBA). That's right, I'm a real live educated ARSE. I can no longer say I stage naked. AND, more importantly, I am trained and authorized to teach you the B.A.S.T.R.D. method so that you too can create beautiful Raffia staging transformations. Just LOOK at all the stunning yet clever ways Raffia was used in the room pictured to the left.
You see, NOTHING SELLS a home faster than a home staged with RAFFIA! And while I know many of you might think you know why it works so well, because of how cute and utterly adorable it looks, but it is not the way it LOOKS that helps a house sell. Actually it is the way it SMELLS that SELLS! But I have to admit I think it looks NEAT-O too. Oh, there is so much to teach you, like the ARSE tag line,"Don't be a stinker... swell smells sell!"
Our industry will soon be revolutionized as more and more stagers use this misunderstood and underutilized tool of home staging. Come learn the secrets! I am now taking reservations for next month's inaugural class. Space is limited... so sign up now. And know, I look forward to teaching you how to be a total ARSE just like me.
Pip Pip & Smile It Forward...
Post Script: Before the long holiday weekend I thought it would be fun to do something a little bit funny. (Or what I THINK is funny.) I believe it is important that we can laugh at ourselves and not take ourselves too serious. Plus it has been a heck of a long time since I did anything goofy in the rain. Anyway, hope you enjoyed it... Happy 4th.
