A loan helped me to overcome the challenges posed by the Covid-19 crisis & not close my business.
Interior Design has always been my “thing” I guess you can say. Growing up in Berkeley Ca, I was the “go-to” for my styling, eye for design, professionalism & integrity. I can remember as a youth, organizing and decluttering my family's home. Through decluttering, cleaning then furnishing their properties myself, they begin to pull me in and ask for my opinion on decor and arrangement. I completely transformed the environment of their homes and allowed for it to reflect their desires. Family, kids, and living rooms were my playground. The blessing for me was when I realized that I solved a problem! With high praises and referrals, I’ve gained through word of mouth through the years, I knew that this was something I needed to cultivate & grow! It was a challenging transition for me to leave the corporate world, as a top banker for JPMORGAN CHASE Bank, in the Oakland / SFO district. My faith led me to pursue my new career in home staging, as a result, I’ve staged 87 luxury homes in my first year! Through wonderful recent transitions & blessings in my life. COVID-19 allowed me to push the boundaries and it honestly really tested my faith, day by day. I believe that If God gave it to me and blessed me pre COVID, he will post COVID.
