TERRI L. MAURER, FASID, a former national president of ASID, is a business consultant, commercial interior designer, author, speaker, and educator. Based in Akron, Ohio, she is the owner of Maurer Design Group and President of Maurer Consulting Group.

KATIE WEEKS, the editor of eco-structure magazine, is an experienced design writer and editor. She is a former editor of Contract magazine and has served as a member of the editorial advisory board for ASID ICON magazine.

Review:

"Maurer and co-author Katie Weeks have created a must-have manual for anyone considering beginning an interior design practice. Running a successful practice requires more than talent and enthusiasm. The subsequent parts include starting and sustaining the business, and the sale or turnover when it's time to retire. Several examples of actual business practice follow an overview that explains each topic area and how they apply to an interior design practice." (San Francisco Book Review, May 25, 2010)
