How do you manage hustling for design opportunities while also maintaining work-life balance? How do you overcome discriminatory work experiences at design firms who don’t value you? When do you know when it’s the right time to stop working as an employee and create your own business? We chat about this and more, with Abigail Marcelo Horace of Casa Marcelo.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • Seeking a more inclusive and less redundant, interior design environment
  • Growing up in an artistic family and deciding to pursue interior design
  • Meeting others who resonate with the discriminatory work experiences she had
  • Changes that need to be made in the industry
  • The rude, weird, and interesting experiences at past jobs we had before starting our businesses
  • Offering a supportive work environment to our employees
  • The benefits to owning your own business compared to working for a firm
