Yeah - yeah - got your attention . . . but really where was YOUR mind going?  I was talking about AIR BEDS - of course.  Ever had one deflate on you after you left?  (One key reason why we need to check on our Staging to make sure things still look good!).  What an embarrassing call THAT is. . . ...

As a follow up to my rant on the red light district Stagers - http://activerain.com/blogsview/287074/Get-off-your-back  I thought it would be good to put this one up so that anyone reading this who wants to know what to charge - it's easy. . . just ASK.I cannot imagine a Stager established in bus...

I was reflecting back on my participation on Active Rain and the SIF Group - nine months have gone by since I posted my first blog and began to read what others were sharing.

Chalk it up to experience . . . I should know better considering how long I have doing this. . . but even I jump at the chance to bid on jobs with the trust that my information will be considered with the same care and consideration that I have put into the proposal.I was asked to bid on a $1.2 m...

I know there have been other posts on this topic, but recently I have had to do battle with some rental companies in my region and elsewhere to help dispel the myth that renting furniture is "Staging."  I have had "discussions" with large national companies on behalf of Stagers, sticking my neck ...
