Eileen Taylor

President | lead instructor

Having gone through the experience myself of founding and building a successful Home Staging, Decorating & ReDesign and Organizing business, Eileen Taylor Home & Design, I know what the challenges are. How do I start? What are the principles of transforming a space? What techniques and accessories should I use? Where do I get furniture? What vendors and suppliers do I contact? And so on. 

I will share with you my first hand knowledge in our training courses on how to overcome these challenges, how to turn your dream into a reality, and how to plan, launch and run your own Home Staging, Feng Shui, Professional Organizing, Decorating & ReDesign and Event & Wedding Planning company.

I developed the Ultimate Academy® training courses to assist other entrepreneurs that wish to pursue a career they are passionate about.  

At Ultimate Academy®, we have the most comprehensive training programs available today.

I am equally proud of our amazing team, including our instructors and industry specialists.

As the lead instructor of the Home Staging, Decorating & ReDesign and Co-Instructor of the Professional Organizing programs, I bring my passion for not only the craft, but also for educating and sharing my knowledge and experiences with others, so that they may follow their passions too.

These courses provide you with a blueprint for your new business. These courses provide you with the confidence, proper training and support to be successful. You will be in business for yourself, not by yourself.

To me, it is more than just teaching Home Staging, Feng Shui, Professional Organizing or Decorating & ReDesign – it is an opportunity to inspire you to be the best you can be in whatever your passion might be!

Greg Taylor

Vice President | lead instructor

I am the business instructor and co-founder of Ultimate Academy®. 

With over 25 years experience establishing and running businesses from the ground up, I know what it is like to forge your own path and how intimidating it can be when you start out. I know how helpful it can be to have someone with business experience talk to you about your business and how to succeed. I have helped many individuals develop and launch their business and set them up on a path to achieve their goals. I will answer the questions any new graduate would have, such as: How do I set up my business? How do I find clients? How do I market myself? Should I work for myself or someone else?

At Ultimate Academy®, my job is to give you the business and sales training so that you are confident and prepared to effectively implement your newfound knowledge and skills learned in our program. My goal is to make you just as confident in the business and sales aspect as you are with Home StagingProfessional OrganizingDecorating & ReDesign and Event Planning.

I co-instruct the business and marketing sections of the Home Staging, Decorating & ReDesign, Professional Organizing and Event & Wedding Planning programs. 

My passion is inspiring people to be bold, and showing them all the opportunities there are in running their own businesses, and how rewarding it can be for them. What I am most proud of is the success of our graduates, and seeing the joy and satisfaction that it brings them.

My approach is different, I make learning how to run a business fun!
