Simple Mood Boosting Workspace Hacks For Increased Productivity From Interior Designer Lori Kimble Hayes

Hey everyone! Stephen and Chelsey here with a new episode of The Rainmaker Family Podcast. In a time where so many people are working from home, it can be hard to separate the house from the work. Today we are going to talk about the importance and the how-to in making a functional workspace. 

Our guest today, Lori Kimble Hayes is an early creative, a real estate agent, and has a Masters in Design that she uses as an interior designer and architect. She uses her passion for design to help others create a place that truly does work for the purpose of work. 

Lori shares how she tapped back into her early entrepreneurship self, and started looking at what brought her joy rather than what brought in the most clientele, the importance of setting a space for work and keeping it sacred, as well as tips on how to stage your backdrop and work area to reflect your brand and really put into “work mode”. 

If you’re working at home or just trying to find a way to keep your work/life balanced, this is an episode that you simply don’t want to miss! So hit play and join us as we learn how to use our space to reach our goals from Lori.
