Interior Design entrepreneur Tobi Fairley gives us a refreshing look at how to bring the fun back into our work, starting today.

“The thing that separates those who are super successful from everybody else is the ability to go ahead and do what you’re supposed to be doing… even when you don’t want to.”

-Tobi Fairley


Sometimes when we’re putting so many hours into our goals and building our dream business, we forget why we even started.

In this episode, Tobi Fairley gives us a refreshing look at how to bring the fun back into our work, starting today.

Tobi is best known for her bold use of color and interior design. She’s also one of the nation’s most progressive-thinking entrepreneurs, a successful business coach for creatives, and a certified life coach.

She is passionate about helping creative entrepreneurs, especially women, get out of that “starving artist” mentality so they can build a life that they love.

Let’s have some fun!

Why doing the deep personal mindset work should be your top priority


Tobi Fairley has owned her nationally-acclaimed interior design business for 20 years, and her work and products have graced the covers of House Beautiful and Traditional Home Magazines, and have been featured in other top shelter publications including Veranda, Southern Living and Luxe.

For more than 12 years, Tobi’s business consulting firm has helped thousands of designers and entrepreneurs reach their dreams.

Tobi has a unique combination of degrees in Accounting, Interior Design, and an MBA, paired with years of experience, which have lead Tobi to create a competitive advantage for herself and her clients. She also designs products for numerous companies, including licensed collections for Woodbridge Furniture, Soicher Marin Artwork, and Duralee Fabrics.

She has created a DesignYou online Coaching program for Creative Entrepreneurs where she helps you transform your mindset, your schedule, and your business model for more health, wealth, and joy.
