Add-on’s, renovations, and new construction homes can seem intimidating to take on. How do you even get started? How do you find and manage contractors? What surprises should you anticipate coming up? How long do these things take?

In this podcast, you will learn all that and so much more!

What you will learn from this episode: 

  • What my past experiences taught me being the only girl on the jobsite

  • Confidence and joy on jobsites is possible

  • Why I want to help boost other women up and create a community for designers

Today I want to talk about the very essence of being the only girl on the jobsite.

Since the Masterclass I hosted last week for Interior Designers I’ve been talking to a lot of designers and found that we have a common thread among us. Doing renovation work, we’ve found ourselves to be almost always the only girl on the jobsite.

Now, this role can be rather lonely if you are the only anything in a situation whether it’s the only man, woman, child, adult, what have you.  And since I have been the only girl on the jobsite for such a long period of my life, I have developed strategies. I have evolved the way I work in order to make it a positive experience…..and it is a very positive experience for me now, but that wasn’t always the case! 

For those listening now, the designers listening, I thought it might be valuable to share some of my experiences over the years. What you’re seeing now, my confidence on jobsites, the joy that I have going on jobsites was not always there. That comes over time, with experience it comes with confidence, looking back, seeing a situation, and growing and changing from it.

I fully believe women should be helping each other along, boosting each other, inviting each other to new levels when opportunities arise. 

In today’s episode, I’m sharing with you some stories from my own past experiences where I have had situations where I’ve had to stand my ground, and in some cases – just leave.

I want to hear from you! 

If you’ve had experiences like mine in today’s episode, or something else, I’d like to hear about them. I want to open up a forum for a conversation that allows people to get the support that they really need. Being the only girl on the jobsite can be very isolating, can be very lonely. I believe with the proper support from other interior designers it can be a thrilling and exhilarating role as well. That is what I experience now and why I wanted to build a designer community inside the Only Girl On The Jobsite course. I would love to hear from you. You’re experiences, wins, and strategies, because as I always say, there’s something to learn from all of us.
