Owner

Inspired Interiors, Chicago

Age 39

Business at Inspired Interiors has skyrocketed over the past year, leading to added staff, a doubling of office space, and a growing bottom line. Behind it all is Emily’s ability to effectively merge her creative side with the essential management, finance, and marketing roles of a company owner.

Unsatisfied with off-the-shelf software, she commissioned a custom solution that includes an updated invoicing system, which has dramatically improved revenue tracking. Similarly, Emily revamped the interior design process that drives an individualized strategy for each client.

It’s important to Emily that Inspired Interiors offers a tight-knit, family-oriented environment for her associates. Her make-it-work, hands-on leadership style sets an example for staff on how to successfully manage several duties at once. Daily, you’ll find Emily juggling jobsite issues, attending client meetings, and managing a team of 12.
