Our Mission

Help 100 design firms reach $2.5 million in annual revenue with 20% profit

At Gail Doby Coaching and Consulting we all come to work every day to solve the biggest problems that Interior Designer face in their business. The nagging problems that keep them awake at night, many of the same issues that every business owner face. Even successful Interior Designers struggle to find the right clients, increase their bottom-line profits, and have access to solid business guidance that they can count on.

Throughout the history of Interior Design, people come out of school with little to no business building knowledge. Our mission at Gail Doby Coaching and Consulting is to help 100 design firms reach $2.5 million in annual revenue with 20% profit. The truth is you have to have both, revenue and bottom-line profits to be sustainable. We have helped design firms 10x their revenue and profits in little as six months using our proven proprietary formulas.
