Well, when The Productive Designer guest Sara Keeling felt the need to hire-it was not a Design Assistant. It was somebody else. Tune into this episode to find out who Sara’s first hire was. And how her approach taught her some valuable business lessons we should all learn. 

We chat with Sara Keeling founder of Custom House Interiors & Co. Since 2005 Sara has been building her design-build business and has positioned herself as the go-to kitchen design-build expert in her area. 

When not designing and running the kids to their activities, Sara enjoys a fun golf game, (not too serious because her games needs some work) hanging out with her hubby and friends, and traveling.
