Meet Amy & Katie, Past Students

Former Admin Assistant and Paralegal Turned Professional Home Staging Business Owners

Amy Burke former student of Joy'sAmy and Katie worked at the same nice law office, and both suffered from office burnout. Bored to tear with their professional life, they signed up for Joy’s decorating course.

Shortly after, Amy and Katie earned their certificate and launched a Professional Home Staging business.

At first, they stayed busy staging homes on nights and weekends. Joy taught them how to be good decorators, therefore, they were busy with clients.

So, as the demand for their staging services grew, it became obvious it was time to leave behind the illusion of a steady paycheck, the Golden Handcuffs they call it.

The Amy & Katie Success Story

Katie Miedler former student of Joy'sIn the past 5 years, Amy and Katie staged $14.6 Million worth of real estate. The properties they stage get 104% of the asking price, which makes them both highly sought out home stagers.

Amy and Katie’s best advice for someone considering taking Joy’s course is that you only need to like interior decorating a little bit.

“Joy’s course was so fun and inspirational that you’ll end up with a passion for decorating. Like we did. We never even considered starting our own business, but Joy’s course happily led us down that path.”

“I will teach you everything you need to know about interior design – whether you start a business or simply pursue your passion.”

– Joy Nan Rodia, Creator of NextGen Design Academy.

How do students find the time to take an online course?

The Universe treats us all to the same amount of minutes in a day, but in the real-world many of our students suffer from multiple combinations of dream-career obstructions such as full-time jobs, kids, sick family members, broken limbs, vacations, sinus infections (To our knowledge no one has suffered all 6 obstructions at the same time, thank god.)

You always have access to the course.

Have a full-time job? No  problem! Just about all of our students are working full-time. They solved this issue by jumping into the course before work, after dinner, or on weekends when everyone is still asleep. Pour yourself a cup of coffee and sink into the material.

Need to stay late at work? No problem! Logon during your lunch break. That way get to avoid Nancy at the lunch table while she chews her sandwich with her mouth open, yuck.

Your kids take up most of your free time? Again, no problem! Our students catch up on their lessons while waiting in the car to pick up the kids, or sitting in the doctor’s waiting room (You know their never on time), or as their nighly reading in bed.

If you have a different dream-career obstructions from the ones above, one of our students has probably over come a similar one. Email us and we’ll help you find a way.

But in reality, our students are typically so excited to be learning something they’re passionate about that they always find time to dive into the material and complete their fun assignments.

How long does it take to complete the course?

NextGen is totally self-paced, so depending upon how much time you dedicate determins how fast. That said, most of our students take on average 6 months to complete the course and earn their certificate. Exciting to think that six months from right now you could be a certified interior decorator.

You have 12 months to complete the couse. If you need to take off a month to help a friend move to Bali, you won’t miss a beat.

What is the difference between Interior Designer and Interior Decorator?

An interior decorator selects and arranges décor including furniture and lighting, they choose paint colors, rugs, accessories, and artwork. They work closely with clients to ensure that their vision for a room or home is well thought out and implemented.

An interior designer doesn’t just enhance the look of space; they also enhance the function of it. Interior designers often work closely with architects and contractors to help attain the ambiance and look the client is after while still adhering to code and regulatory requirements. The interior design process follows a specific and systematic methodology which includes research, analysis, technicality, and creativity. Additionally, having knowledge of and applying the principles of environmental sustainability has become more and more essential in this line of work.
