"The HSRA™ Training Camp was the push I needed to truly begin improving how I run my business. As a smaller sized company with only a couple part time employees, I am often too busy working in my business and not on it. Training Camp provided focused assignments so I could identifying what needs to be improved and tweaked as we grow. I am so glad I committed to this program and am excited to continue on to Ramp Camp"
- Adrienne Edgell | Owner of My Nest is the Best
This training camp is exactly what I have been looking for so many years. With our industry being a creative business I believe it’s hard to know all the in’s & out’s of the business side. Starting from the beginning this would have been the greatest information needed to start your business the right way from the start. I now know exactly what I need to do to keep my business growing, how to continue to create revenue, and how to grow a team that will last and love the company they work for. Creating policies and procedures for your company and having the appropriate business plans will help your company have great success. This program has dramatically helped me look more into the business side more without so much fear and has easy modules to help you do anything your business needs on your own time. This is the best investment at anytime in your business but particularly when you start as it will help you make the right decisions from the beginning. Whether you’ve been in business or just starting this training camp will have the best tools your company needs to succeed.
- Heather Good | Owner of Attractive Interiors
"Although I had completed most of these modules in the past by myself, the fact that there were assignments to each made me really consider how to actually implement them in our company. We've managed to plan a series of strategic planning meetings for Marné and I to schedule deadlines of when we will be implementing many of these vital, yet foundational aspects, in order to set us up for the next level of success in our business. I wonder if we'd learned these things and been mentored in them, from the beginning, where our business would be today. We've spent 8 years learning all the self-taught ways to do this business slowly and steadily, but now is the time for us to ratchet it up and grow to our full potential."
- Sharon du Plessis | Owner of Metamorpheus Designs
The first 30 days are over and I have survived! Training camp was wild and wonderful, intense, scary at times (yes, you have to make a video of yourself), challenging and so inspiring!
I am Marné Coetzer of Metamorpheus Design Services and embarking on this journey with my business partner Sharon du Plessis and HSRA leadership is one of the best decisions we have made for our company. Training camp provided me with valuable information and skills to help my partner and I move forward in our business. It forced us to really dissect our business and to be brutally honest about where the business is at the moment and what we need to do to take it to the next level!
We all know when you first start the business you wear all the hats and there are no time to pay attention to policies and procedures that are so critical to ensure the future growth of your business. Training camp helped us to not only focus on those aspects but actually implement that!
And that is one of the biggest take aways from this first phase of the program. I need to be accountable, not only to myself but to the business, my partner and our team. No excuses anymore! Do it now!
But for me personally, the most valuable part is the support and encouragement from my fellow Squad 5 Team members. It has been a blessing sharing this experience with like minded, passionate people with a love for this crazy industry we are in, and I am excited for taking on the next phase with them.
Thank you Jana, Laurie, Jill and Dana for helping me to become the best version of me, in my business as well as my personal life!

GDP is very comprehensive for the business owner, particularly one without any structured or corporate experience. For those that HAVE a corporate background, it's a good temperature check and will identify need areas around systematizing and standardizing your business for growth, scalability or future sale.
It will be an eye-opening experience for stagers who have given very little thought or effort around the true back-end business side of the business, and who don't really have any idea HOW to grow.
It gives you SO much more than what any training class would ever provide and is incredibly valuable as a result.
- Leigh Newport | Owner of Staged by Design
I enjoyed the first 30 days. I found a basket full of items I didn't think about. So this will be the year to build a firm foundation with the help of GDP.. I'm so grateful to hear about this program. I feel I will have a guide through this maze. I thank you Thank you!! ❤️
- Pamela Wogenstahl | Wogenstahl Designs
I loved it all. The accountability, the modules, and the delivery of content. A great way to stay focused on what truly matters, and a step by step that is easy to go back to and delve in at a later time- too much to catch up on at once, over here ;)
- Ilana Weismark | Ooh La La Home Staging
The GDP program has been invaluable to review, assess, revise every aspect of my business to really get it structured for growth. During the first 4 weeks of training camp it felt like being shot with a firehose with all the information and learning resources! However, over the past 4 weeks and a lot of hard work, I feel like I have more clarity, direction, and confidence to be ready for the next phase of Ramp. I am so grateful to be part of the first Squad to go through this amazing program. Thank you HSRA!!!!

GDP is like a mini MBA. Starting out, this would help the frustrations, let’s you win way quicker!

Wow! Where do I begin?? As I write this testimony, I want to preface by saying that this testimony will do this program NO JUSTICE!! The one word to describe this program is PRICELESS. Like seriously. The amount of knowledge gained in this program is unheard of. Like who and where do you think you’re gonna get the blueprint. The DNA to someone’s business?? I will admit that it gets hard to follow and implement simultaneously. Don’t do that because you will fall behind FAST! Instead what I learned after riding the struggle bus was to simply pave myself, not get overwhelmed with ALL of the content and knowledge day today. Write the notes, save the resources in organized folders and implement them later bit by bit.
You’re here and apart of this alliance (HSRA) because you’ve realized that your staging business is missing something. Or you may think that you have it figured out and client contracts are coming left and right. That’s the thing... this GDP has something for both sides of the spectrum. Processes and procedures are the backbones of any company’s success.
The ramp phase of GDP was like taking my company’s processes through a cleanse. Jana’s videos in the daily modules made me feel like she was in my head and knew my very specific pain points. I am literally able to create an entire two-week training for my staff from the modules and resources given during this phase. I feel rejuvenated, recharged and ready for action following this program. Nothing is censored. The amount of candidness shared and information exchanged, has made me feel powerful. GDP was simply my missing link to my business.
Lastly, I’ll say this. I am now severing 4 celebrity clients on million-dollar redesigns, my website is now being completely rebuilt to include critical information I never realized I needed, I hired 3 stagers, and a client Coordinator, our name is soon changing with a new logo to reach a broader audience, and I am receiving a PAYCHECK simply by pivoting my business to a whole new level as a result of GDP. *drops mic*

This has been an amazing journey! 90 days of intensive education involving you and your team. This is a gamechanger and I highly recommend it. This is a next-level program and will elevate you and your business.
- Barbara Heil-Sonneck | Design2Sell
This program saved our business this year. With covid 19, I personally was having a hard time getting out of bed in the morning. But Jana told me about this amazing program and I was in. First, we spent 4 weeks really focusing on the structure and exec side of the business. Then we brought our team members into the program. It was tons of work but I can't say enough for how we have grown. Our team has made Tuesday Tip videos that will take us to the end of this year for Social Media. We have a Social Media Calendar now. Our logistics team figured out by moving 2 parts of our warehouse around that it would save "X" amount of dollars for the 7 years of our lease. It becomes your team training forever... We now have an emergency evacuation program w/ pictures of our floor plan and the exit routes as well as where are all the fire extinguishers. In addition, we have training on how to use a fire extinguisher. We are continuing to work on our Standard Ops/Employee Handbook. Updated our Business Plan to 2020 versus the last time I had looked at it was 2014. We now have the end of day reports... and a way to track those calls coming in versus the proposals/sales going out. Blessed beyond belief that we have gone through this and will continue on Growth w HSRA. This is a must for all staging businesses to go through. Thank you HSRA for giving us the opportunity to be a part of SQUAD 1
