Starting an Interior Design Business - Aarti Popat

Show Notes

In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneurs Podcast, I speak with Aarti Popat, Interior Designer, Consultant and Mentor at Aarti Popat Interior Design and The Interior Designers Club.

From the age of 15, Aarti dreamt of becoming an interior designer and becoming her own boss one day. After studying and working in her dream career for more than a decade, the time came to fulfil the second part of her desire and start her own business. The opportunity came when a paid project landed in her lap. She followed this with a website and social media presence...only to discover that she needed more than this if her business was to thrive.

Listen to this episode to discover more about Aarti's journey, and what she has discovered it takes to build a successful interior design business.

I learned early on that business isn't as easy as building a website and social media presence and waiting for clients to find you. You have to take action for clients to find you. - Aarti Popat
