Lots of business learning in today’s interview with Robin. Robin talked about the importance of systems. He learned about this early on in her interior design business journey when a friend recommended that he read Michael Gerber’s book called E-Myth. If you are new into your interior design business, I highly recommend you pick up a copy. It will be the best investment of time you can make. BUT, if you want a free copy, all you need to do is give me a review on iTunes! That’s right, I believe so strongly that this book will help you, that I am giving away 20 copies of The E-Myth to the next 20 people who write me a review in iTunes. Just take a screen shot of your review, and email it to me at email@example.com with your mailing address. I will send you one book with free shipping.
