Whether your dream is being home to get your kids off the bus every day, contributing to the family income, or growing your side-hustle into a seven-figure business, home staging can help you get there.

Who Is This For?

This course is perfect for newbies looking to launch their staging career and existing stagers in the early phases of their business looking to build a stronger foundation and book more jobs.

Over 11 hours of dialed-in guidance from people who have actually been where you are!


Stager Starter contains everything you need to know - and nothing you don't - to build a home staging business from scratch, even if you don't have any startup funds.


We remember what it was like to be totally overwhelmed when we started out. To help avoid that feeling of info overload, we've included only what you need in order to launch and grow your staging business, making it more effective and less daunting.


Unlike those courses you've taken in the past that you complete and still don't know where to start, this course is designed to walk you step-by-step through the process of starting your staging business, even after the course is over.


Most staging courses begin above $1K!! We've cut the fat and left only the juiciest meat and potatoes, which allows us to price our course much lower so you can afford to get started on your dreams sooner.

No Degree Necessary

Launch your design career for a tiny fraction of what it costs to get a degree in Interior Design, and create a job for yourself that's even more fun, flexible and fulfilling. (Ask us how we know.)


Designed to get new stagers started on the right foot and then grow to any size they can dream of, or find profitability by staying small and streamlined. We'll help you build a business that works for your life.


Learn how to build a solid foundation in your business from people who have been where you are and know your struggles and dreams. No stuffy or judgmental Debbies here. (Also, no offense if your name is Debbie.)

Based On Real-Life Experience

Most stager trainings are created by big-budget stagers in big-budget markets who don't understand what bootstrapping your business in a low-income market is actually like.

We not only understand it, we lived it.

That's why this course is designed to help solve those problems and get you started on the right path so that you don't waste time testing and dismissing strategies that don't work for you.

The fundamentals. But fun.

Through our tested process, we’ll help you find clarity in exactly what you need to do and when, and maximize your efforts from beginning to end so you don't waste any time while building a business you love.



Part 1: Business Basics

Learn what you need to do behind-the-scenes to make your business legal and efficient from day one. From how to write a contract, to keeping track of staging details, to what kind of insurance you need, this section will set you up for success.


Part 2: Design Basics

Let's face it. You already have an eye for design or you wouldn't be here. Instead of teaching you every nitpicky little thing, we only teach the most effective, simplest hacks and strategies to make your stagings picture perfect every single time.


Part 3: Staging & Real Estate Basics

Learn about your new industry, how the staging process works, how to talk to Realtors, what to buy and where to stock your inventory when it's time, and how to feel confident going out into the world armed with enough information to position yourself as an expert from day one.


Part 4: Selling Your Staging Services

Most staging courses teach you outdated sales methods and focus on high-pressure strategies. Instead, we believe in smarter not harder, and so we're teaching you our easy ick-free sales strategies that never feel salesy.


Part 5: Mental Health

A healthy business owner is a profitable business owner. Learn coping strategies, how to set healthy boundaries, and focus in on small changes you can make in your life that will help you succeed as an entrepreneur.


✅ A list of necessary contract clauses

Packing & Shopping lists

✅ A super helpful downloadable course guide

Action challenges to keep you on track

✅ An email series designed to help you shift your mindset

✅ Crazy-valuable templates & downloadables to set you up for success

✅ AND a detailed BONUS video all about Sourcing & Selecting Inventory!

But wait,
there's more!

You didn't think we'd leave you alone to fend for yourself as a brand new baby entrepreneur, did you? 😁

We believe in the power of momentum, accountability, and community, and so we're including free lifetime access to The Stager Starter Community inside the course where you can get to know other stagers who have taken Stager Starter, access bonus resources, experience exclusive lives with Amy & Jes, and stay accountable as you build the foundation of your future.

We're going to hold your hand every step of the way because every business is different which means you're going to have questions.

We have answers . . .

. . . and occasionally a hug when you need it, however digital it may be. xoxo

This is the course we wish had existed when we were newbie stagers, and it's packed with value, accountability, and all the secrets we learned along the way that we know will help brand new stagers move mountains.

For All Skill Levels

Stager Starter consists of information for stagers of all skill levels whether you’ve been designing for years or you’ve just found your love of home décor. This course will benefit you and dramatically streamline your path so that you can achieve bigger profits much faster than we could have dreamed.

Perfect for Boutique-Sized Dreams

While the skills we teach will get you started on the right foot so that you can scale your business to any size, our methods are a perfect fit for those looking to build a boutique-sized business.

Not everyone dreams of a 10,000 sq ft warehouse.

In fact, as soon as we scaled up in our business, we looked around and realized it wasn't what we wanted. We were working constantly, and the pressure to book enough stagings each month to meet our rising overhead meant that we barely saw our families and were spiraling toward burnout.

And so we scaled right back down to a sweet spot that suits a softer, slower lifestyle, and lets us be more than just overworked entrepreneurs - all without sacrificing a healthy income for our families.

If that sounds good to you, then you're in the right place. <3



We've got A's for your Q's

How much does it cost?

Unlike most staging courses out there, this one isn't designed to be exhaustive, which means it isn't exhausting and actually feels doable.

The info and training you need to get your business off the ground and making money is our main focus, which allows us to charge MUCH less than most.

Click here to see the current price.

How do I know it's for me?

Do you love home décor? Do you have a great eye for design and the desire to work from home? Do you have reasonable organizational skills?

Then you can do this.

If you want to be sure you're a good candidate, take our free staging quiz to find out.

Does it matter if I'm new to design?

Nope! We've found that the drive to succeed and a natural eye for design matter far more than experience in the industry. While Amy has a degree in Interior Design, Jes has no official training whatsoever and it has never held her back as a successful entrepreneur or designer.

We'll teach you what you need to know to speak intelligently about design and feel confident in your skills and abilities as a pro stager.

How long will it take to complete?

While this course was originally designed to be a 5-week live class, you can now access all the sessions on-demand! That means whether you're a tortoise or a hare, you can complete it at whatever pace works for you and your life.

Every business is different, so it's important to us to create resources that work for all types of stagers, all over the world.

Can I ask questions along the way?

We know that questions come up all the time, so you'll have the ability to see and hear past students Q&As, but if you're still needing more info, we have solutions for you!

With the purchase of the course you'll also receive free lifetime access to The Stager Starter Community! That's a great place to get clarity, ask follow-up questions, and continue learning while making friends. <3

Will I receive a certification?

Currently the staging industry does not require any licensure or certification in order to become a home stager! Many other stagers will try to tell you that this or that certification is necessary, but they're either selling you something or misinformed, and your potential clients have probably never heard of their certification anyway.

Really, the only thing that matters is that you know what you're doing - and if the piece of paper does it for you, there is an option at the end to print a custom (and rather pretty if we do say so ourselves) staging certification to hang proudly on your wall. 😍

About The Staging Lab

Hey friend, it's great to meet you!

We're Amy & Jes, Co-Owners of our own boutique-sized Home Staging & Airbnb Design business in Northeast Ohio, a business we built from blood, sweat, and many many tears. We started with just $99, and built our staging empire into a multi-six-figure operation!

But it took YEARS.

We're here to help stagers thrive SO much faster than we did. Staging is a pretty new industry, especially lower-budget staging, and there aren't many resources out there helping bootstrapping stagers. It can be so frustrating, and you feel like you're wandering around blindfolded in the dark!

That's where we come in.

We already cut a path through the jungle, and now we're sharing our map. Starting or growing a staging business doesn't have to be a years-long nightmare! If you're lit up inside about making it work, then this course will give you all the tools you need to make it happen.

We created The Staging Lab as a safe place for newer stagers with smaller budgets to thrive and flourish. Stager Starter is our flagship course, and our pride and joy. We spent years perfecting it, and we know you're gonna love it!

Finally, a dream that doesn't cost $40k.

We started our multi-six-figure staging business with just $99 and a big dream, but we had to struggle every step of the way.

In fact, when we went looking for help from the industry, we found a ton of overpriced trainings that didn't seem to apply to our budget or our market.

And Amy had already wasted $40k and years on getting an interior design degree that she wasn't using! We didn't have the money for another pricey training.

It was so frustrating and we felt so lost!

After years of trial and error, we eventually found our way, and now we're obsessed with helping others do it faster and with fewer pitfalls along the way.

Sick of telling yourself you'll start fighting for your dreams tomorrow?

It's time to stop putting your dreams & goals on hold. Our only regret about opening a home staging business is that we didn't do it sooner!

You can register for Stager Starter right now for less than a couple Target runs. We made this a no-brainer price so you can make this the year you put your dreams first.
