2017 Year in Review

Posted by

It’s hard to believe, but it’s almost the new year. 2017 is done. And equally hard to believe for me is that this is my 10th year of sitting down on December 31st and doing a comprehensive review of all the things that I experienced, accomplished and celebrated over the last 12 months. One of the first things that comes to mind today is that this means my blog is also almost 10 years old. Wow, those years went so fast though I can hardly remember life before this blog.

For this 10th anniversary of my year in review, I am doing things differently. And that’s because these days, I am running my whole life a lot differently than I did 10 years ago. Yes, my life is even far different than just 12 months ago. Previously my year in review was the place that I highlighted all my business successes big and small, because I was admittedly a workaholic and my business was really what I thought about more often than not.

These days, my business is only a part of my focus and it shares the spotlight with my family and other meaningful experiences. Novel idea, I know. But I am committed to a balanced life and I am having more success with that than ever before. So this year, my year in review is a wonderful mix of things to celebrate across all parts of my life.

2017  was a BIG year with some dreamy, BIG, work stuff. But I intentionally curbed many of the smaller things at work to leave more space for what matters most. My mantra for the year has been “Say no to the good, so you can say YES to the Best!” And maybe that’s why I believe 2017 is my best year yet. Let’s take a look.

First and foremost, I completed my home renovation this year. Can you say Hallelujah? I cannot tell you how exciting it is to no longer be working on my own project. It’s always harder to do your own home, especially when you’re a designer and you have to fit it in around all your other projects. But this baby is FINISHED!

And having my home all beautifully designed and functional is adding so much joy to my life each day, especially since I now work from home, too. My design studio is on the back of my house with a gorgeous view of my pool and the golf course beyond, which makes for more relaxing days at the “office”.

This was also the year I became a columnist with Traditional Home magazine. The features kicked off in January and I wrote an article for every issue this year that chronicled my home renovation. From planning the floorplan layout, to selecting the colors, to designing the kitchen and baths, we covered it all. If you missed any of it, you can find it all on the Traditional Home website here.

The pool and outdoor areas of my home were featured in the summer issue of Traditional Home as part of my column, and readers really seemed to love this feature. My family and I especially enjoyed many hours by the pool from March all the way through December thanks to a few resort-style outdoor heaters and that great new fire pit.

In the December issue of Traditional Home, I finally got to showoff my entire home renovation all dressed up for Christmas. Having a column with one of the top national shelter magazines for an entire year was definitely a dream come true and I am grateful to Traditional Home and all the team that worked with me to make this happen. It was BIG!

My own home renovation wasn’t my only celebration with Traditional Home this year. In April my work graced their cover with one of my favorite client projects.

In addition to the column on own home renovation, the April issue showcased a beloved Farmhouse project that I have been dying to show you. And getting the cover for this project was the icing on the cake.

Also in April, the Pandora’s Manor Showhouse opened in High Point North Carolina. I designed one of 6 bedrooms in this lovely boutique bed and breakfast, with some of the country’s biggest names in Interior Design including Thom Filicia, Barclay Butera, Alexa Hampton, Celerie Kemble and the guys from Madcap Cottage.  This amazing property is all sponsored and owned by Eastern Accents. What fun it was to use my Tobi Fairley collections for Duralee, CR Laine, Woodbridge, Soicher Marin and New River Artisans all in this room.

We even had a super fun “designer sleepover” in our Pj’s at Pandora’s Manor, each spending the night in the rooms we designed. Eastern Accents spared no luxury on us that week, we even had celebrity chef’s cooking our meals. We were spoiled and it was great fun. Thank you Eastern Accents for this fantastic experience.

2017 was also a big year for my product lines. I launched my second full collection with Soicher Marin art company in April.

I expanded my outdoor collection with Woodbridge Furniture from the soft launch last October.

And I launched my new rug line with New River Artisans company. You can see products from all these collections in my home reveal too. How exciting to bring my own furniture and home accents to my own house for my family and me to enjoy for years to come. Definitely another dream come true! (P.S. Stay tuned for more product line announcements in 2018!)

One of my favorite things about my design work this year is that I had 5 of my most favorite former clients of all time start new projects with me. It felt like the best year of design ever and you will see lots of these beautiful spaces revealed next year. From family homes in Arkansas to a family-owned business headquarters, to a condo in Dallas and a beach home in Florida, we are working on fun spaces for these clients that have been a real joy this year!

A great honor I received in 2017 was being inducted into the Sheridan High School Hall of Fame and giving the keynote address to their graduating seniors at the annual senior banquet. How exciting to be able to come back home and share the highlights of my almost 20-year career in design and consulting with these young men and women who are just getting started on their own paths.

This year was one of transition for my consulting and coaching businesses in the best of ways. I loved hosting my Mastermind group in Dallas in the Winter and then at my own home in the Fall. What fun showing a group of other designers how I live and work in my new space, and treating them to a seated dinner in my dining room with fabulous celebrity chef, Donnie Ferneau!

I also hosted the last in-person session of my Designer MBA Course in California in early Summer at the fantastic Thermador headquarters in Orange County, California. I have hosted classes, courses and mastermind events at this amazing facility for 3 years now and Thermador always treats us like royalty. Thank you Thermador, for your amazing hospitality and all the delicious food cooked by fabulous chefs on your outstanding appliances. Being there with you was definitely a highlight this year!  And for those of you who have been waiting to take my fantastic Designer MBA course, you still can. And all-new version of it is coming to the online world in 2018.

My consulting and coaching business is my major focus for next year (more on that soon) and so I enjoyed concluding the way some of my courses and programs have worked for the last 8 years to make room for my most exciting launch yet, happening in just a few weeks in mid-January.  If you want to take your business AND your life to the next level in 2018, you are going to love masterminding with me and getting my top tips and my most popular programs all online (some taught live) and at THE most affordable price yet! And one of my favorite parts is my courses are no longer just for designers, and heres why…

To bring all of you my best next year, I wanted to take my own coaching and consulting skills to the next level. So 2017 was a year of education and training for me. Those of you who know me know that I am a lover of knowledge and learning. And in July of this year I completed a 12-month health and wellness coaching certification from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition to help me teach all of you how to better balance work and life. Lack of balance is the main challenge I hear from designers and entrepreneurs each year, and it’s been true for me too. So I wanted to be equipped to bring solutions to this challenge for both you and me, and now I’m ready!

To take it a step further, in December I was certified as a Life Coach and a Weight-management Coach from the Life Coach School with Brooke Castillo. I would say of all the courses, classes, books, seminars and learning I have gotten in my life (and I have completed a lot), this training was the single most life-changing program I have ever been a part of.

I cannot wait to bring my knowledge of nutrition, health, wellness and life coaching to my consulting business next year. This training has resulted in my biggest personal shifts yet, and I am incorporating these ideas for wellness and balance into all my interior designer and business coaching offerings next year. You won’t believe the results you are going to get!

And on a related note, I have just tackled the redesign of my website and online education site that is launching in just a few weeks. So that was a huge part of my 2017. I don’t mean I am just doing a refresh. I have literally redesigned my entire brand, mission, vision and goals to align my Interior Design and Business Coaching businesses with a holistic approach to wellness and balance. It’s been a labor of love with web designers, photographers, copywriters, strategy consultants, online marketing and products gurus and more. And I feel like we have blended all the things that inspire me the most into a simple and straight forward approach that allows me to help people design their homes, their businesses and their lives to create more health, wealth and joy.

And speaking of balance and joy, there was a lot of that this year for me too. I made room for my big goals this year for work, and worked those in around my main priority…my personal relationships.

It’s been years since I really traveled with my husband for his work, since I have been too busy traveling for mine. But in 2017 we made trips for his job (he’s an amazing attorney) to Scottsdale and Boston, plus a fabulous 15th wedding anniversary trip to dreamy Aruba and a fun family vacation to Seaside, Florida.

Working so hard isn’t worth it, if you can’t spend time with those most important to you. And this year, I definitely did that!

Working from home has also allowed me the most special time with my daughter. I love that I am here when she comes home from school each day. I love being here for those important moments when she tells me about her day. I love that I don’t miss her volleyball tournaments, tennis matches and school performances. And possibly the most special little moments, are in the carpool transporting six or eight 13 year olds to practices.

Motherhood is THE most important role I have. I recall several years back telling my own coach “If you think I will be one of those moms who volunteers at recess or drives carpool, you’re crazy!” But now I would give up every magazine cover or client to be here for these moments as a mom. And the best news is that with all the changes I’ve made to my business this year and my impending launch of a much bigger presence online, I can do BOTH!

I even made time for friends much more than ever in 2017. From hosting my ladies bible study group, to girlfriend nights for dinner and drinks, to date nights with other couples and my hubs, to Razorback football games and a weekend at the river, I had a lot of meaningful time with friends this year. Here’s a little pic with our friends visiting from Washington, DC and our fishing trip on the White River. I LOVE fishing. I know that’s hard to believe for a girl like me who loves fancy stuff, isn’t it? But the joy of being out on the peaceful waters with eagles flying overhead, and one of my dearest girlfriends by my side was perfect! And it was even sweeter when we caught more fish with our guide Danny, than the guys did.

Moments with true friends are so important to me now more than ever, probably because I am often reminded that life is so short. I was reminded of that this year when I lost my talented friend of 25 years, Todd. He was an event planner extraordinaire and I love this photo of him. It’s how I’ll always remember his smile. And the way he signed every hand-written note…”Smile, Todd”.

Another of my favorite things this year was doing a LOT of entertaining in my home especially during the holidays. My husband and daughter are super social, even more than I am.  We love to share our home and our cooking with friends and family.

In December alone we hosted 5 holiday parties and 2 dinner parties and we loved every moment of nurturing others in our home. One of my favorite things to share with my little family of 3 is our love of entertaining, and I know this home will be the backdrop for our events, big and small, for years to come.

The year of 2017 will go down as one of the great ones in my book.  And 2018 is going to involve some of the biggest changes I’ve made in years. Stay tuned for some big announcements, the launch of my new website and very exciting all-new consulting/coaching offerings  and a year hyper-focused on making my biggest personal contribution to the world that I have ever made. I am on a mission to make a difference in the lives of others including my family, my clients, and designers and entrepreneurs around the globe. I couldn’t be more excited about what that will look like next year.

Thank you my friends, for taking a look back at 2017 with me.

And a special thank you to Traditional Home, my licensing partners Woodbridge Furniture, Duralee Fabrics, New River Artisans, Soicher Marin, CR Laine Furniture, all the vendors that partnered with me on my home renovations, Eastern Accents, Thermador, my fabulous photographer Nancy Nolan, my videographer Leonard Chamblee, my builder Richard Harp, my landscape Designer David Munsey III, my own coaches and mentors, my amazing interior design and consulting clients, all our workrooms, subcontractors and vendors that help us create great designs, my fabulous Tobi Fairley Design team, my web designer and consultants, my amazing friends, especially my family and so many other people who helped make my 2017 great! And a big Thank you to all of you who follow my blog.

Cheers to 2018. I believe it’s going to be my most exciting year yet!

xo,

 

 

 

Self-Care Saturday: Making a Mental “Shift” for a Healthy and Profitable Life

Posted by

shift

Your success, whether in your business or in your personal life, is completely dependent on what you believe. You could be just one mindset shift from the success you dream of in all parts of your life. It was true for me just a few years ago and today I am realizing so many dreams that my mindset was keeping me from. Here’s what I mean… tobi before and after

It’s been two years since I finished losing over 30 pounds and almost 2 years since I revealed my getting healthy process here on the blog for all the world to see. It took me almost 2 years to lose the weight, 18 months to be exact, and thankfully I have kept more than 30 pounds off to date. And trust me, the keeping it off is much harder than losing the weight.

mind

But it’s not the weight loss that has been the big deal in my life. It’s the mental shift I made way back in June of 2010 which was over 4 years ago. That is when I was feeling awful and working myself to death. I was in my late 30’s and was burning the candle at both ends and in the middle to build a business and be a mom of a young child. I was filling my body with sugar and carbs to have the quick energy to keep working those 14 hour days, I was getting very little sleep and I was doing ZERO exercise. I just didn’t have time, or so I told myself. And when I wasn’t working my day job, I was at home writing this blog in all my other “free time” to help build a business and a following so I could grow my company into something profitable for my family. My intentions were right, but my mindset wasn’t.

unhealthy

Here’s what I looked like in June 2010 and seeing this picture is what made me say enough is enough. When I look at this photo I remember how awful I felt–my whole body hurt, I felt about 20 years older than my 38 year-old self and I was a walking ball of stress waiting to melt-down at any moment. I was SITTING at my desk or on my bed with my laptop for hours every day and there is a reason that Arianna Huffington addressed the top designers and architects in the country last November at the Design Leadership Summit by saying this…”Sitting is the new Smoking”. To be healthy, my body needed to MOVE, not sit!

healthy tobi

Thankfully this is what I look like today. When I look at this photo I see a healthy, happy and much more balanced forty-something gal. But for me it’s not about constantly fitting  into some tiny size of pants. It’s being a healthy size that’s right for me and more importantly feeling good on a daily basis through healthy food, regular exercise, yoga and meditation and a most importantly, maintaining a healthy mindset. Just last week for my Mastermind Consulting Group‘s monthly tele-call, my topic was Stay Healthy AND Make a Profit. Those of you who are entrepreneurs and small business owners like me know that these two things are often mutually exclusive.

your body

It is so difficult to have the time and energy to build and maintain a profitable business and have time to exercise and eat right, not to mention the difficulty of eating and working out when you travel often for work like I do.  And then there are the  many work-related social events where there are always so many things to tempt you like high-calorie foods and alcohol.

In my Mastermind Tele-call last week I spoke about why I believe that being both healthy and profitable not only can co-exist but why I think they actually MUST go hand-in-hand. And why when I made the mental shift that helped me finally get healthy, it was the same mindset shift that also made me disciplined enough to REALLY get my finances in order with my business and become dedicated to taking both my design and consulting businesses to a level of success I had previously only dreamed of. Today I am seeing all the things I have been working for now for over 15 years fall into place and I credit it all to that mindset shift over 4 years ago. the body will follow This week, I was reminded of another successful entrepreneur and business woman who has made this same sort of shift. My weekday morning show of choice is ABC’s Good Morning America. And I have loved watching Tory Johnson, their guest contributor of the Deals and Steals segment, get healthy over the last few years. Tory founded two multi-million dollar companies herself and spends time empowering women like I do, and she struggled with the same challenges of losing weight and getting healthy for years. But she has now kicked her bad habits and kept her weight off too as featured this week on GMA.

the shift

Her book (which I am now reading by the way) is called The Shift. And Tory inspires me to continue to make being healthy a priority in my life. So much so that I am ordering this treadmill desk for my office. Well I have ordered it and I am just waiting for the glass desk top to get re-stocked because Tory inspired so many people this week with her segment that the glass top for the desk is currently sold out. But I can hardly wait to have this desk as another excuse not to SIT all day, every day. 090414AtWork09CJ

So on this Self-care Saturday while I await my new desk,  I am going to take today to re-enforce my healthy habits. It takes time each week to relax, replenish and make sure you aren’t falling off the “healthy mindset” wagon. Yes, it’s self-care Saturday so I am going to the spa for a facial and a massage. I will be doing my daily 3.5 mile walk and I am enjoying healthy food like a yummy green smoothie filled with nutrients for breakfast. Plus I’ll be cooking some healthy recipes with my family this afternoon, all because almost 4 years ago I made a big “shift”.

Do you need to make this shift in your life to become both healthy and profitable? I hope I’ve inspired you to do so and let me know how I can help. Leave me a comment here if you’ve made a similar shift and let me know what tips and tricks for staying healthy AND profitable have worked for you.

I am always looking for new ways to maintain my healthy lifestyle. Happy Saturday friends! I hope you will spend the day being both healthy and happy.

Now I’m off to the spa. xo,

A Pillow Giveaway and Mastermind Spotlight with Traci Zeller

Posted by

pillows on green rug

Hello friends! Today is an exciting day because, since this is my birthday week – a week full of celebrations – I am feeling generous and so I’m giving away 2 fabulous pillows to one lucky reader of Tobi’s Blog. Now that’s really a reason to celebrate!

Actually  to be more accurate, my friend Traci Zeller is the one feeling generous and we are giving away a gorgeous pair of her “Bubbly” pillows in the sweet pea color with a chic green flange (see adorbs photo above, top left pillow). Isn’t bubbly the perfect name for this great fabric that reminds me of popping the cork to celebrate a special occasion? Like my birthday perhaps? 😉 And in just a minute, I’ll tell you how you can enter to win these beauties.

But if you don’t already know Traci, then you don’t know what you are missing. Traci has been a member of my Mastermind Consulting Group since it’s inception, and boy has she ever taken huge leaps over the last three years. I thought it would be fun to highlight all she has accomplished and let you get to know her a bit better. She has amazing things in the works, and I can assure you, you will be hearing a lot more about this lawyer-turned-interior-designer in the coming months and years.

TZD Profile Photo (headshot)

So who is Traci Zeller and what has she been up to? Well, she’s coming off a stellar year. In 2013, the founder of Traci Zeller Designs in Charlotte, N.C., launched a line of textiles and home accessories (hence the fab pillow giveaway). Another high point for her: creating a dressing room for Traditional Home’s Showhouse at Adamsleigh in nearby Greensboro, and she was in good company with design greats Suzanne Kasler and Miles Redd, who were also part of this stunning show house.

“2013 was a fantastic year,” Traci says. “My word for the year was ‘dream,’ and a lot of dreams really did come true.”

tra120215_ 026 (room shot)

Traci has been involved in the world of interior design for about a decade. Her design philosophy is rooted in her belief that “beauty is created when you make the ordinary orderly.” You can see more of her gorgeous work here.

This mother of  7-year-old twin boys has a particular passion for working with families.

tra130603_046 (fabrics)

“I create crisp, classic, and highly functional products and interiors that empower active families to enjoy simpler and more stylish lives. Many of those families have young children and, yes, multiples! There’s something special about having twins or triplets and understanding those dynamics. Most importantly, with the busy pace of everyday life today, I think we all want life to be simpler and more stylish.”

And as I mentioned, Traci has been part of my Mastermind program since its inception three years ago. That’s dedication, right? So I had to ask what has kept her working with my team and me for so long. Here’s what she had to say…

“I have always been impressed by how you make things happen, Tobi. The biggest takeaway I’ve had is how much work goes into making those things happen and what I need to do to make those things happen for myself. You can’t sit back and wait. Take the reins and make it happen for yourself!”

tra130603_024 (candles)

And sitting back is certainly not what Traci has been doing. Besides her amazing design work and fabric launch, she’s been published in Better Homes and Gardens and her home that she shares with her wine-loving husband was recently featured in a fantastic spread in the prestigious publication Wine Spectator. And if those two magazines weren’t enough, her work graced the pages of Traditional Home, too.

And then there’s Traci’s signature scent. Her candle is Ah-mazing! I have already had two of them and I burn them so often that I need to buy a case. And it’s so chic in the mercury glass container. You can find all Traci’s products in her e-store in case you want to bring some of them into your home.

Traci is planning to make things happen again in 2014. Her No. 1 goal is to “continue doing great work for great clients,” but she’s also embarking on new ventures a few that I am privy to but I can’t spill the beans just yet.  Traci wants you to know that she has “a few little (and for the moment hush-hush) projects” that she’s working on, and she can’t wait to see them come to fruition. And don’t worry, the moment they are public, the readers of Tobi’s Blog will be there first to know.

And since I am so into video this year, here’s a little video that sums up all that Traci does…

So now for the giveaway. If you want to be the lucky winner of Traci’s Bubbly pillows, just leave me a comment below and tell me where you would use these fun pillows in your home and what you love about them most and you will be entered. You have until midnight on Friday, Jan. 31 to enter to win. I will be announcing the lucky winner on Saturday morning, Feb. 1.

Please be sure to follow Traci’s blog for great ideas on Stylish Living even if (or especially if) you have kiddos in your life.

Good Luck Everyone!

xo,

Today’s the Day…Finally the details on the New Tobi Fairley Mastermind Program

I’ve been promising to tell you about my new and improved Mastermind program and today is the day! So in the spirit of making more money, I’ll give you some lovely and inspiring green photos to look at while you read all about how Mastermind will help you put more “Green” in your pocket!

In just a few months, we will be starting year FOUR of our Mastermind Consulting Group, but we just aren’t willing to wait to introduce all-new and very exciting features. So now that’s it’s almost back to school time, I think this is a perfect moment to get you into learning mode, too!

You’ve asked for more access to my contacts. You’ve asked for more access to my design processes and systems, and you’ve asked for more accountability so that when you leave Mastermind sessions or listen to my monthly telecalls you actually have a roadmap and accountability to REALLY put these all-important best practices in place.

Well, you’ve asked and we are bringing it to you. And the best news is that for at least a limited period of time, we are not raising the price of Mastermind at all. So many great additions all for less than $800 per month investment for your firm.

(Tory Burch–she’s great at making money, huh?)

So what does the new Mastermind look like?

Well it still has AMAZING content from me three times a year during our on-site strategy intensives in Little Rock. And you’ll still get 12 monthly telecalls on the hottest topics in the design business or small businesses in general. With 2014’s topics including everything from the design process for the new economy to paying yourself what you really deserve!

As always, you’ll get access to our all-important private Facebook forum where you can converse and collaborate with your Mastermind peers anytime day or night about client issues, the latest sources and trends, pricing questions and more. Many members have said the forum alone is worth the entire year’s Mastermind investment.

You’ll still get your quarterly small group Q&A telecalls to work with the Team Tobi staff and other members of the Mastermind group who have a similar business size and structure to yours, or who are facing similar challenges. And you’ll be able to have your questions answered there during the live call.

And you will still get access to my 6 Tobi’s Book Club telecalls a year where I give you my “Tobi’s notes” version of my very favorite business books and tell you how to put the key strategies from these great books into place in your business.

But here’s where it gets really good…

New to the program this year:

  • Action-packed evening and lunch additions to our on-site sessions, with top-shelf keynote speakers from our industry and beyond. So besides just getting my best content three times a year, you will hear from industry and business gurus who will share insights and strategies on topics ranging from creating business systems that really work, licensing, television media, building celebrity brands, outsourcing, putting the fun back in the business, making BIG profits and much, much more. I am bringing my most trusted industry friends and contacts to our on-site sessions and you will get REAL information on how to up-level your business like these top designers, editors, television personalities, and dynamic business owners have done.
  • You asked for accountability, so we are bringing you weekly email contact from Team Tobi to hold you to really making big leaps. We will be sending you monthly and quarterly milestone checklists to measure your accomplishments and help you get much more than your money’s worth by taking more action over a 12-month period than ever before!
  • For nominal additional fees, we will offer add-on course options at each on-site Mastermind session, so while you are already in Little Rock, you can take advantage of your time by taking additional coursework from industry experts on topics ranging from media and video training, social media, project and personal scheduling, understanding and up-leveling your finances, PR and marketing, and more. And if you’ve been in Mastermind and heard it before but need a refresher course, you can totally take advantage of this added-value too.
  • If you are a member of our Deluxe Mastermind level, you will see even more exciting additions and speakers.  You will continue to have hands-on workshops your second day on-site with us (3 times a year), and these meetings will include incredible field trips, working in a very small groups with top shelf industry and business gurus to get all your questions answered, plus your intensive sessions with me and my team for your deluxe content that continues to get RAVE reviews from our deluxe members.
  • And finally, you’ve ask to get access to my real procedures, my real contracts and documents, and my actual systems for running my profitable and nationally-acclaimed design firm, and we will be giving you access to several of these items included in your membership.
  • If all that isn’t already enough, we will be adding Mastermind to our Affiliates program. So whether you are in Mastermind or not, you can get paid to sign people up for this great program. You can easily offset your yearly investment by joining our affiliates program and becoming an extension of our sales team. And wouldn’t you LOVE to get paid to work on your business? It’s a no-brainer right?

All this fabulous content, tried-and-true Mastermind deliverables, and all new additions for accountability, access to industry insiders, top-shelf key note speakers, add-on content while on site to up-level your business, and much, much more starts at our September session.

And on that note, I am excited to announce the all-star lineup for September that you won’t want to miss.

Our on-site session, which is all about Licensing and Sponsorship, will kick off on Monday night Sept. 9 at the Clinton Presidential Library with a VIP tour of the Oscar de la Renta exhibit, followed by a reception. This stunning display is not to be missed.

For Tuesday’s lunch keynote, we are bringing in executives from Kravet and Lee Jofa Fabrics to share with you how the Oscar de la Renta fabric line licensing deal and design concept came together and the glamorous task Kravet and Lee Jofa had of creating a line that was a perfect representation of this fashion icon and his celebrity brand.
