“I bring in $120,000 dec­o­rat­ing homes for the hol­i­days”

First For Women - - Home -

“When I was in col­lege, I used to help out dec­o­rat­ing trees at a gar­den cen­ter and I learned how to make cus­tom bows. Busi­ness own­ers started to so­licit my ser­vices and I be­gan to get so many re­fer­rals, I re­al­ized I could make money on my own do­ing hol­i­day dec­o­ra­tions. I didn’t have any cer­ti­fi­ca­tions, but as more peo­ple learned

Name about me, it be­came a lu­cra­tive Age side gig.

“I’m hired to dec­o­rate oC­fiftiyc,eSst,artes­tau­rants, the­aters or homes. Some of my clients need me to pur­chase dec­o­ra­tions and in­stall them while oth­ers only need in­stal­la­tion. I usu­ally dec­o­rate Christ­mas trees, stair rails and kitchens. I also make cus­tom gar­lands for the ex­te­rior and I hand-make all the bows.

“I mar­ket my busi­ness on my web­site (DenisePic­colo.com), but most of my work comes from word-of-mouth re­fer­rals. I make be­tween $75,000 and $120,000 in just two months. I love this work be­cause I get to have a hand in the won­der­ful mem­o­ries that are made dur­ing the hol­i­days!”
