Today’s guest is the fantastic Lisa Dreissig! Lisa went to school at The Fashion Institute of Technology. She then worked for several startups and then moved onto an architecture firm. Working with these firms helped her immensely with the starting of her own business. But before she started her own business she created a blog that she started in 2007 when she was laid off from her job. It turns out that this blog has really opened the horizon to be a great way to have people get to know her and find potential clients. Lisa shares with us today how her blog has helped her business and why it’s a good idea for others to start a blog as well.
Lisa shares with us in this episode:
- Her inspiration for her blog

- Make a personal connection
- If someone doesn’t like what you post, then don’t work with them

- Recommendations of other blogs to read
NEW Special Segment! Bonus!
If you could invite one person to a business lunch with you, someone who you could sit with and have complete access to ask questions about their marketing, branding, licensing, design inspiration, anything at all, who would it be? Maybe it’s not a fellow interior designer; maybe it’s a business leader, a thought leader or an author. Who’s name would you want to see on the RSVP to your lunch invitation? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org – put RSVP Podcast in the subject line and then tell me the name of your dream lunch date and the reason why you selected this person.
Who knows, maybe we can invite that person to the show and you will get that chance to ask your questions…. In the meantime, to see whose name Lisa Dreissig would love to see on her RSVP hear our off air conversation about her RSVP wish.
