WHAT’S YOUR HUSTLE: I am a design enthusiast. I am totally inspired by all things design and want to bring affordable design to people’s lives.
WHAT DOES YOUR HUSTLE MEAN TO YOU: I think no matter what someone’s hustle is, they need to do what they love and love what they do. I love working as an interior designer. You can connect with people on such a personal level since you are working with them to make the place that they spend most of their time into something beautiful. Also, I feel like bringing beauty and design into peoples lives enriches it to an amazing degree, people are much happier in beautiful spaces.
IF YOU COULD HAVE THREE TOOLS FOR YOUR HUSTLE, WHAT WOULD THEY BE: 1. a computer, 2. unlimited funds to spend on furniture i love, 3. unlimited happy clients
A WORD OF ADVICE TO WANNABE HUSTLERS IN YOUR FIELD: Without a doubt, find a mentor! For my first design job, I worked for an amazing designer who taught me everything I know. The knowledge I learned from working for her was invaluable and I would have never learned this info in your typical school setting. Also, work for a designer whose aesthetic you respect. This is extremely important. You dont need to spend a ton of money on design school. If you got the skills, work experience will take you far. Once you get some experience, you will have the confidence to go out on your own and hustle your own skills.
