Here we are at the peak of summer. I hope you have some well-deserved R&R scheduled. You can’t perform at your best if you’re overworked, stressed and burned out. Even if it’s only for one afternoon a week or a day off on the weekend, take some time to unwind, enjoy the summer, and engage in those activities that recharge your batteries and renew your spirit.

Before you go off to the beach, the pool, backyard barbecue, or that vacation you’ve been dreaming about all spring, do your business a favor, too, and invest in your future success. I’m talking about taking just a couple of minutes to register for our upcoming Interior Design Summit, which begins October 13, 2017, at High Point the day before the opening of Fall Market. By registering now you’ll accomplish three tasks that are sure to enhance your business in the months to come:

  1. Ensure your place at the industry’s only professional development event focused on interior designers’ businesses with an emphasis on practical and actionable profit and success strategies. Plus, from October 14-16 you’ll take part in our exclusive curated Market experience, the IDS GRAM|MEs, that provides IDS attendees with VIP-level access to preeminent showrooms at High Point Market. Schedule yourself now for IDS and Market before you get caught up with new projects in the fall.
    Get personal assistance with pre-registering for Fall Market, trip planning, and onsite transportation arrangements, courtesy of Key Sponsor, the High Point Market Authority.
  2. The year’s IDS promises to be the best yet. By combining it with High Point Market, you get the added benefit of attending the world’s largest home furnishings trade show. If you’ve never been to Market, or have not attended for some time, you really should make time to do so. Please read my article Why You Simply Must Make It to Market to learn why.
  3. Registering for IDS is easy and quick. Just go to the IDS Website and complete the brief registration form. Save $100 by taking advantage of early bird pricing, now through August 18.

The 2017 Interior Design Summit is sponsored by: Lexington Home Brands, High Point Market Authority, French Heritage, Stanford Furniture, Theodore Alexander, E by Design, Julian Chichester, Mr. Brown, Weather or Not, Picture Source Somerset, Stemper & Associates & Verellen.

You can check that one off your to-do list, and feel good about having done something that will benefit you and your business. Now get out there and have fun!
