Entrepreneurs often spend hours each day working in their home office. Why not enjoy better interior design and make it a positive place! Especially if the design fee is a low, fixed price!
Jaime Gonzalez and his online interior design company, The Man Home (Listen for his discount for you, toward the end of this podcast!) may be able to help you. Their target market fits the straight-forward business model and pricing: single guys who can use ‘a little help’ in how their apartment looks and feels. (That would probably be about 100% of single guys).
The service works smoothly. Clients upload photos of their rooms and photos of the any furniture they wish to keep.
Clients also fill out a survey on their design preferences.
Designers do not visit the client’s home.
The designs are delivered online, for a low fixed-price, per room.
Jaime’s story is of growing up poor in Latin America’s poorest Spanish speaking country. His family’s properties had been confiscated, and his grandfather was kidnapped. Jaime only had his guitar and mostly by teaching himself, earned full music scholarships to two top American universities, Loyola in New Orleans and The University of Southern California.
After college he survived for five years, playing music in restaurants around Los Angeles. He did not earn much but he learned much, especially how to engage customers, and how to hustle. Every day he studied to build up his knowledge of finance and insurance which allowed him to start a successful insurance consulting firm – that today, funds this latest startup The Man Home!
In this episode – Jaime talks about the imagination of an immigrant, teaching yourself when there are no teachers, finding the world in books, and the value of charm.
