In addition to your ongoing course, you'll gain a lot of confidence simply by increasing your understanding of what contractors, plumbers, etc. do - and how.

Yes! I realize I need a good dose of courage to take risk and get my hands dirty. Appreciate you communicating it. :)

Try to make yourself available as a non-paidintern to work side by side with an interior designer focusing on all aspects of a design project. Jumping right in to get your feet wet is the best plan of attack.

Thank You Lani! I have worked with a designer over the passed year and half, and the hands on experience is value added. I appreciate your insights, and best wishes to you!
