“WE'RE ENDING THE YEAR $200K OVER”

Since joining the confidential, we’re ending the year $200k over what I was projecting to close out the year with. We have implemented a lot of automated steps in our process which allows our team to spend more time designing efficiently. Our systems and processes allow us to maintain control over our projects, project our cash flow, and our clients enjoy their experience along the way! Traci’s program was a game changer in leveling up my business!

Do you ever wonder why the trade secrets
in our industry are kept so hush-hush?


If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “There has to be a better way!” when it comes to building your design business, you’re right! The only problem is that no one is sharing the golden nuggets you need to get to the next level.

 

That’s why I created The Confidential, a private design society where growth-focused designers gather to learn the profitable business processes & industry trade secrets that are absolutely essential in building a profitable design firm that runs like clockwork.

WELCOME TO
THE CONFIDENTIAL

Your life is about to get a whole lot easier.

The Confidential now has two tracks:

The VIP TRACK for Designers generating $300K+

&

The PRO TRACK for Designers generating $0 - $300K

Each track offers the exact same client experience. The only difference is that each track has its own coaching call schedule, as the needs of these two groups are very different. This keeps each group focused on their individual priorities - but don’t worry! There are plenty of opportunities for both tracks to collaborate and connect.

Before we get into how The Confidential will change your life & business forever, let me say a little something from the heart.❤️️

I’m Traci Connell, CEO of a $4.5M award-winning design firm, Traci Connell Interiors. (I can’t even believe I’m saying that!)

When I started my design business from my kitchen table as a single mom with 3 kids, I didn’t care about publicity or fame. I had to make real money to put food on the table for my children.

These days, I see so many talented designers working their butts off, creating beautiful work, and getting nowhere fast. They are stressed to the max, underpaid, and missing out on the joy that their dream career can offer them.

What are they missing? Profitable Processes. There is a way of doing things that attracts the champagne clients you want, brings in the money you need, and builds your brand on autopilot.

That’s why I created The Confidential: to normalize wealth for interior designers and to show them the business-building secrets that really… shouldn’t be secret.

Listen, most of us didn’t go to business school. I didn’t! As designers, we are driven by beauty, aesthetics, and life experiences - not spreadsheets.

Unfortunately, if designers don’t learn the business lessons they need to run their design firms profitably and efficiently, they will always be cash-poor, time-poor, and stressed out.

Enter The Confidential. We make it FUN for growth-focused interior designers to make big moves. We come together to support one another, as I share the secrets that have been kept hidden for too long…

Because here’s the truth: there’s more than enough room at the top for all of us. (I mean, have you seen the homes and commercial spaces out there?!)

Designers - in The Confidential, we are going straight to the top together. Will you be joining us? You’re invited!!

HOW THE CONFIDENTIAL WORKS

(and how to make it work for you)

 


STEP 01

Make Your Money Back.

The first training in the program is called Find $10K in 10 Days. Use this training to literally make your money back immediately. Traci has created this class to ensure that you can use the program materials to pay yourself back for your entire 12 months of coaching right away.

STEP 02

Add the Coaching Calls to Your Calendar &
Clear Your Schedule to Attend Live

You’ll always have the replays at your disposal but you’ll get the most out of the program if you attend live. Set the time aside to do work during the call. This program is for designers who get stuff done! There are 3 calls per month with this program and one “implementation/off week.” So make the most of that time we have together!

STEP 03

Work Through the Essential Curriculum First

Traci will be guiding you as to the best next step for you in your business. Focus on going through the essential curriculum first. The important thing is that you achieve the growth that you want, and that requires focus. Once you’ve completed the essential curriculum, you can move on to the additional advanced-level trainings.

STEP 04

Use the Templates and Resources to
Copy-Paste These Winning Strategies into Your Business

Don’t be overwhelmed by the extensive template library. These templates are available to you so that when you need them, they’re there. When you’re implementing any part of the program, our goal is to have the templates do the heavy lifting, so you can simply customize and get them working for you right away.

STEP 05

Bring Your Questions to the Coaching Calls

The monthly calls are there for you to get coached. You can ask specific questions about the content, get help with mindset, strategy, or even tactical implementation. Whatever is on your mind is fair game for our calls. All calls are recorded and stored in the vault, in case you’re note available that day.

The Confidential is for growth-focused designers who are serious about taking their firms to the next level.

"THE CONFIDENTIAL GAVE ME WHAT I NEEDED TO EXPONENTIALLY GROW MY BUSINESS"

I came across Traci last year and joined The Confidential. The Confidential really changed everything for me, because it gave me the basis of what I needed to do to grow my business. Since then, it's been really great! I have a full-time design assistant, I have a full-time office manager, and they're revamping the back office. My business grew exponentially this past year, because I really got serious about my margins.
