Step up to a higher level and outperform your goals through results-driven strategies

Work privately with our founder, Jane Meagher, to rethink your operations, systems, personalization process and more.

Strategy consulting is a custom project designed around your most pressing challenges, and the way to work directly one-on-one with Jane (the undisputed national leader in design studio optimization and personalization strategy).

Private consulting is for builders who want to systematize operations for greater efficiency, optimize their design process, products, and pricing — and innovate new ways to solidify their position as market leaders (both now and in the future).

ELEVATE consulting is available in 3 tiers: Elite Access, Platinum Partnership, and Platinum Plus Partnership, so you can choose the amount of support you require.

Typical topics include:


Strategic creation of design collections (typically includes strategy, data review, configuration, design trends, profit and pricing, marketing, sales, IT needs, operations, and more).


Creating consistent, upleveled operations and customer experience across multiple departments or divisions.


Taking a retail approach to your design studio store.


Reimagine and remap your customer experience through all customer touchpoints in the design studio and far beyond (into other departments).


Redefine interdepartmental communication and partnership while diving into your most critical improvement opportunities across a variety of topics ranging from internal operations to customer experience to corporate goal alignment and more.

I’ve learned so much from Jane

I’ve learned so much from Jane about the Design Studio business. Her meticulous and focused attention to each project is admirable. She takes the time to understand the builder’s Design Studio business, points out where there may not be a clear strategy, and collaborates in an inclusive way to deliver projects that meet goals. Jane’s been a great thought partner throughout the years that I’ve had the pleasure to know her.

Instrumental in creating new process

Our experience with Jane has always been top notch. She makes us think outside of the box, is always open to new ideas, and spurs a lot of creative thinking when it comes to our design process and how we interact with our customers. She has been a great resource for building confidence in our Design Team and has been instrumental in helping us create new process and procedure – ultimately leading to a more streamlined and favorable experience for our homeowners.

Jane’s coaching was powerful

Jane’s perspective and coaching was powerful in jump starting our journey toward a modern buying experience for our customers and in bringing efficiencies to our team. Starting from a 50-year-old custom builder mindset, who had managed to shift toward semi-custom over the last decades, we  needed the expertise and experience Success Strategies delivered . Becoming a “retailer” was a big jump for us and Jane’s help and guidance was invaluable.
