I've been receiving a lot of compliments lately on my business and how well it looks like it's going. Thank you! It is going well for only having been in business a little over a year.
But I'm here today to share with you that it doesn't always go well. You think this only because I have been sharing the utmost positives with you via social media, blogs and newsletters. Truth is, it's not always rainbows and butterflies here over at LS Interiors! There are often times when I put a great deal of time, thought and effort into designs, and they never come to fruition.
It's okay. This is an example of when the (design) life hands you lemons and you make lemonade. These carefully crafted digital renderings that I have put together for potential clients on Laurel and Wolf have not gone to waste, because I can share them here with you!
This happens not only in the digital design world but also in the flesh. Sometimes you put together a proposal or a design for a potential client, and for one reason or another it just ends up not working out. It's all part of the process. Ya win some, ya lose some!
But. The sensitive soul and perfectionist that I am, I'm still learning how to take this in stride.
And it's honestly therapeutic just sharing it here with you. There are a lot of things you just can't control. You can give it your all and sometimes your all just isn't enough. It just means that it wasn't meant to be and there will be something better out there in the long run.
Anyone else out there feel me? This applies not only to interior design and business owning but life in general! Things aren't always as shiny perfect as they look on someone's Instagram feed. You never know what is really going on behind the scenes. We all have our own trials and tribulations. It's great to keep it positive, but it's also great to keep it real.
So, without further ado, here are some of the latest "fails"!
And by the way, whenever I "fail", it just brings out the competitor in me. Instead of skulking off and pouting, it gives me incentive to keep submitting these designs even more! Can't stop won't stop :-)
Also, with very helpful and personalized guidance from Laurel and Wolf, I've been able to learn from these fails and perfect my presentation style even more. So it's not really losing, right?
So, how do spin your #losing into #winning?
PS~ I can design one of these style boards for you. Find out more about that here.
