I am doing a bunch of mini decorating projects this month for my 31 Days of Interior Styling (I say as I collapse onto the sofa and wipe sweat from my brow). Honestly, without my background in project management and good planning skills, I think I would be dazed and confused at this point. Luckily, everything is going along smoothly, thanks in part to careful planning. Want to know how I do it?
Have you heard of scope creep? Nope, it is not a weird Halloween line dance.
Do you know the difference between top-down and bottoms-up estimating? Heck, do you even know what they are?
Do you know why and where you should plan for contingency? Conting-a-what?
I know these sound like big business jargon, but they are actually practical concepts that will help your decorating and home projects run smoother. Learn all about these and more in my FREE Lesson, How To Plan A Decorating Project.
This awesome lesson covers these 6 areas for a successful project:
- Scope Control
- Resource Planning
- Importance of a Schedule and How to Estimate the Time it Will Take
- Two Approaches to Creating a Budget
- Contingency Planning (aka Planning for the Unexpected)
- Handling Changes
It is over 1700 words of wisdom and project management goodness that is easy to understand and use right away!
The launch of Teal & Lime e-courses is a true blessing in my life. The first Define Your Style students graduated last week. My dream has come true. Now, I am looking to grow my course offerings and build upon my dream. As a big giant thank you for all the support and encouragement I received, I developed another FREE lesson, called How To Plan A Decorating Project. (My first free lesson, Finding The Right Fit, was taken by over 275 students.)
