E1 Naomi Alon Coe
Welcome to Design Biz Survival Guide, a podcast about life and business for interior design professionals. I’m your host – Rick Campos
Today we welcome Naomi Alon Coe of Little Crown Interiors. www.littlecrowninteriors.com Naomi has been in the Interior design community for ten years and has dug her heels firmly into the niche market of Nursery Design. During our conversation we touch on topics such as E-Design, Social Media, and Communal Office Space. Our conversation comes full circle when we discuss paying it forward and Naomi shares her association with an amazing organization called A Sense of Home. www.www.asenseofhome.org
So let’s get started…
TAKE AWAY –
Talking with Naomi about her design business was both informational and inspirational and I can honestly say I learned a few things. I hope you did too.
Naomi’s advice to keep up with technology was not wasted on me. One of my biggest deterrents to launching this podcast was fear of technology. I realized that if I wanted to keep up with what’s relevant and trending in the design community I had to embrace technology and make it work for me. So here I am.
I also learned the E Design is alive and well. That reminded me that just because something isn’t a fit for my business model doesn’t mean it cant be the golden ticket for somebody else’s business. Take a moment to evaluate your business model – maybe E Design could work for you!
I love the fact that Naomi talked about the pros and cons of working from a home studio and I was especially intrigued by her initiative to join a co-working space to supplement her networking efforts.
My biggest take away from my conversation with Naomi was her work with A Sense of Home and how meaningful her collaboration is with such an amazing organization. At some point we all need to take a step back from our day to day and ask ourselves… “what can I do to help?”. Our work as design professionals impacts the lives of others and that gift is not limited to those who have the means to hire us. We all work for free at one time or another so find an organization like A Sense of Home and put your good will to good use.
