Sustainability Action Plan 

The Sustainability Action Plan is designed to help interior designers better understand how to effectively incorporate sustainability into projects. This intermediate level course is designed for anyone requiring a more in-depth understanding of incorporating sustainability into projects effectively and successfully. 


Finance 101 for Interior Design Businesses 

Running a successful business is simple. To succeed, you need to understand the basics of finance that effect the longterm and immediate decisions made for that business. Whether you are a one-person shop or work for a multimillion-dollar corporation, you are governed by the same business principles. This course covers the most critical areas you need to know in order to understand the basics that will help you and your company maintain fiscal health, make informed decisions and keep you on the road to success.

Remember: Business is universal. Running a one-person business requires the same kind of decision-making that a CEO of a million-dollar company makes. 


Ethics and Ethical Businesses Practices

 Exhibiting ethical business practices can result in significant benefits to a company. From attracting top clients to attracting top employees, how you conduct business says everything about you in an industry where word of mouth is so important. Unethical behavior, by comparison, may damage you or your company's reputation and make it less appealing to clients and vendors. Profits could fall as a result.

The value of strong ethical business practices can be found in your reputation and your brand as a company. You are a seller of goods and/or a provider of services. Customers must believe in you to make repeated purchases. If they don’t, they can usually buy similar products or services from a competitor.
