The Design Business Academy is the place to be if you're serious about building a successful, international design business.
DBA is the place to be if you want to launch or grow your design business. You might have been running your business for a while and are not happy with your results. Or, you might dream about running a design company and want to do it right. We talk less about design and more about the business of running a design company. And we support each other! So, DBA is an online incubator for design entrepreneurs.
Are you an interior designer, architect, product designer, decorator? Are you a design business owner? Are planning to become a design business owner? Are you not 100% happy with your current business processes? Are you not meeting your revenue goals? Are you feeling lonely and frustrated? Tried a ton of tactics and nothing seems to work? Yes, it is for you.
Then NO, it’s not for you.
Yeah, that’s the best part! We don’t only focus on some specific countries, we are an international group of designeurs who’d love to meet & grow. So as long as you can understand English and have an Internet connection, then you should join!
For our Designeurs at the PREMIUM level of the Academy Membership, we don’t have the possibility to offer private coaching. However, we host monthly Q&A sessions where we go through all your questions, and we have chat support for all our members! If you’d like to have a private coaching session with us, then we can offer very affordable monthly coaching packages.
While some things do get better when you wait, reaching your dreams and hitting your goals is not one of those. If you are not on track with your business, why wait another month or year? Besides, our price will go up so it would be wise to lock it now (check out the opening weekend offer!) But of course, if you’re not ready to level up your game, then you should not join us.
That is entirely up to you. We launch new classes every week; some weeks a full program, and some weeks we have short tech & tool trainings. We also have short and simple accountability checks every week, and whether you join then it’s up to you. You have access to all everything as long as you’re a member so you can plan your own learning!
During Fall 2017, we will have a joined schedule of launching one new training module per week. This means that by the end of 2017 you’re done with your own Design Client Attraction System. After that, we will move on to a regular schedule:
Yes you do. We only keep the designeurs who are happy. If you’re not happy, we will make you happy by refunding your payment during the first 30 days. After that, you can cancel anytime you like, but you won’t get a refund. Read our full terms on the bottom of this page.
Generally no. You can download the templates and access them after you have cancelled, but the training videos, mastermind calls, and other educational content are not accessible anymore after the cancellation unless you become a member again. New and returning members will always pay the current fee.
“Tiina’s advice was incredibly valuable and inspiring for me in the start-up phase of my business. Her constructive inputs, positive mentality, and tons of ‘homework’ pushed me to take action, and get things done in a very efficient way. Her weekly input was very inspirational and perfectly tailored to what I needed to learn to get where I am today. Her doer’s mentality is fantastically courageous! Wish there were more Tiinas in the world”
