The Edge Newsletter

Perhaps the ultimate member benefit, each month you’ll receive (in your mailbox!) 16+ single-spaced pages of innovative strategies, proven best practices, cash flow and marketing tips and new opportunities. Many Edge members say this one benefit is more than worth the price of membership.

The Edge Tutorial

Each month you’ll be notified that a new video tutorial has been developed just for you. Produced exclusively by David Shepherd, these encourage you to create the habit of learning and mastering topics simple and complex, from cash flow to marketing and beyond. Each month, you’ll look forward to making time to learn.

The Edge Archives

After joining The Edge, you’ll have instant access to the members' archives, containing years worth of Edge Newsletters, Edge Tutorials…even complete courses, eBooks, and more. This is also where you’ll find copies or recordings of anything you miss after joining.


The Edge Discounts

While the benefits described here are all included in your low monthly dues, there are other premium courses which are fee-based, but for which Edge members receive meaningful discounts. This includes the amazing 24-week, Interior Design MBA Program.

"Membership has definitely added six figures to our bottom line."

Phil Norman, principal of Norman Design Group in Torrance, CA has been a member of The Edge since 2005. He states that when the Edge Newsletter arrives in his mailbox. he grabs it and leaves the office for half a day of reading, thinking, and planning for his firm's future. He is also a graduate of the IDMBA Program which he says imposed the accountability even a seasoned industry veteran needs. 

"I can easily do $1 million now, all by myself." 

The vast majority of interior designers are sole practitioners, or what we call SP-Plus, meaning they do have some freelancers and part-time help. Tanya Shively is just one of many examples of those who have used membership in The Edge to increase their ability to gross seven-figures and increase earnings up to 400%!

David's ability to coach interior designers is truly unique.

"I do find David's work most fascinating. It's like he had the mind of a business scientist, highly educated and experienced, and yet he understands the creative minds-of the Interior designers. The mind of the creative is most unique. How David is able to respect the science and still coach interior designers is truly a unique craft."
