"I recently started my own design business. Going in, I thought that I knew everything I would need to know, but soon realized I had so many questions!! I was overwhelmed and decided to hire both a bookkeeping consultant, as well as a business coach - thinking that they would be able to guide and answer all the questions that kept coming up. But because our industry is so specific, I realized that what I really needed was someone who knew the interior design world. I immediately found Beth Whitlinger and could not be more grateful!! She not only is able to answer all of my questions, but is able to give me advice that has taken her years to acquire, which makes it absolutely invaluable!! I am pretty sure I would be lost in the business portion of this profession without her input and guidance. She is amazing and I HIGHLY recommend working with her!"
