In this episode, we'll be exploring how to find your life purpose. We talk about taking assessment tests to figure out your talents and skills, and we also talk about the importance of service to others. We're going to talk about looking at your life experiences. What has life taught you so far? What challenges have you faced, and how did you overcome them? In addition to looking at your life experiences, another great way to find your life's purpose is by talking to those who know you best. Friends and family can offer valuable insights into your strengths and weaknesses, and they may have suggestions for what you could do with your life. Similarly, mentors can provide guidance and support as you explore different options. By talking to those who care about you, you can get a better sense of what you're good at and what you might enjoy doing. In addition, they can offer encouragement and advice when you're feeling lost or uncertain. Ultimately, discovering your purpose in life is a journey that requires exploration and self-reflection. However, talking to others can be a great way to get started.

Hi and Welcome Back to Lolly's Secrets! Sope Opayemi Takes us through her journey of becoming an interior designer and drops some key nuggets that we will note below. 1. If you are pivoting from an existing career to move into interior design or are already in the middle of studying another course, you can always research schools that can take your grades and convert some of your scores into a master's program, the way Sope did. Tip 1 - Work experience is very useful for dipping your feet into the pool to see if you're really interested or if it is just a phase. You get to see what a full day looks like and understand if it is really for you. 2. Relationships are important - jobs are based on the relationships between you and your client. Building on and maintaining those relationships is key to your success. 3. Your team -  having the right team is essential to any interior designers success because your team can make or break your projects Source the through referrals, pick them by skill level, test their skills, work ethic, and willingness to earn. Incentivizing your team is important  Tip 2 - Management skills are fundamental to any interior designer. You must have people skills and be able to get the job done regardless of the situation 4. Networking - Join your associations to meet other interior designers as well as others in the industry so that you can get chances at collaborations. However, caution is advised as some collaborations may come with their own problems. 5. Monetization - payment is normally a percentage of the budget or the project and varies from project to project. Further monetization can be gained by using specific vendors to earn a commission depending on the partnership you have with them. 6. Involvement of a Client in the Project - a commercial project is usually 50% and residential 80% 7. How do you decide on a client? - a) budget, b) size of the project. c) client's commitment to the project, d) creative license, e) the rate at which the client pays you, f) vibe. Some unethical practices in the industry: A. clients holding on to your balance when you have completed the work to their specification B. sexual harassment from clients C. Pressure to gain clients in unethical ways Tip 3 - Design Home App is a game on IOS and Android phones that lets you be an interior designer in the game. try it! 8. Diversify - real estate is a nice way to diversify. You can buy a property, redo the interior and flip it. Alternatively, you can build a purpose building like a resort Tip 4 - The difference between a decorator and an interior designer is that a decorator cant effect changes to the built form. They can only make the space look aesthetically beautiful. An interior designer makes indoor spaces functional by determining space requirements and selecting essential and more decorative items such as colours, lighting, and materials. they must be able to draw, read and edit blueprints. you do not need a degree to be a decorator but you definitely need a degree to be a designer. 9. Residential pet projects can be a saviour in building your portfolio 10. No project is too small. It is all about building your portfolio. Thank You so much for listening to the show!

Hi and welcome back to Lolly's Secrets! Here are 5 things to note When working on your support system: 1. Reassess who you lean on for support on the different areas of your life (financial, emotional, spiritual, etc) 2. Make sure that the people in your support system are supposed to be raised to the importance level of "support system" - not everyone is cut out for such an important role. 3. Check to see if everyone is doing what they are meant to be doing in the role they are supposed to play in your support system. e.g your financial support supporting you financially? your mentor advising you and leading you right? 4. Time to set boundaries- Unacceptable behaviour is no longer tolerated. The level can only be determined by you.cut off, partial, etc 5. Find new people who will complete your support system in the right way e.g. meet up groups. church, therapist, activity-based clubs, etc Bonus tip! Be aware that what goes around, comes right back around. Learn to be your first critic. self-awareness is critical. Assess yourself! make sure you are also there for your loved ones and checking to be sure you are doing your part in their support system before you get cut off too! Continuous assessment is key! I hope this helps keep you sane in a not so sane world. Please rate, subscribe and share! Ciao! Lolly Lolly's Secrets
