At what point is an interior designer consulted in the development of a new business? How useful is an interior designer in the world of business, if at all?

Do business owners consider that interior designers have anything to contribute at the idea formation and planning stage? 2) Are interior designers generally called in at the latter stages to apply design to an already decided business concept/plan, or a tightly scripted design brief, or just to put a face to the business?

This issue explores great art and brand building. Building a brand is a step-by-step process that takes foresight, planning, patience, and hard work. Erik Desando shares some of his salient tips for success in Chasing the Brand. Talent and creativity is not enough, you also need to be able to brand yourself and stand out from the crowd. How can you be unique and different? What are the steps that take you from merely talented to outstanding? Networking, marketing, social media, a solid business plan, and getting your work out there is a must - but you also need a quality product. Many creative people would rather concentrate on the design, the painting, or the photograph, than business or marketing strategies. Younger actresses and models can get so caught up in relationships. A good attitude is needed as well as the spirit of helping others. Branding takes hard work, ingenuity, strategy, heart and soul - but it is a must if you want to succeed.

However, the important thing to remember, is that just producing a good business plan alone, will not result in a sound, profitable or prosperous business. The business plan is just that – a plan – and like any other plan, the only way to see if it really works is to monitor its progress at regular intervals, so that you can respond to any potential problems which may arise and then change or modify your business strategy as necessary. So, let us have a look at some of the reasons why people take the trouble to produce business plans.
