Leanne Ford, interior designer, author, and star of HGTV’s Restored by the Fords has always forged her own path with no apologies and no regrets. She shares her honest wisdom on how to pick a path when you face a crossroads, figure out the best price that your clients are willing to pay, become your own publicist, and allow your fear to guide you towards making something special.

  1. When you pick a path, the universe is there to promote you and push you forward.
  2. As soon as you say this is what I’m doing, I’m open for business, I’m available to help you – your customers will emerge and say, “Come help me.”
  3. There’s room for all of us here. Your success does not equal someone else’s failure.
  4. Be yourself. Stand strong as to who you are. People will be drawn to that.
  5. Look at what is different about you and thank it.
  6. Accept the fact that you’re human. It makes life a lot easier and a heck of a lot more fun.
  7. If you aren’t making anyone nervous, you aren’t doing anything special.
  8. Keep it loose. Be open to paths and opportunities you didn’t even think existed.
