Rick’s Story:

Rick Campos is a self-proclaimed recovering interior designer, podcast host, and design business coach on a mission to support and promote the rise of the interior design community. Before becoming a leader in the design industry Rick championed his own residential design business for six years and then joined forces with a fellow designer and practiced for another 6 years, first as an associate designer and ultimately as a director of business development. His daily interaction with clients, builders, architects, vendors, and artisans contributes to a broad perspective of the design industry. In 2018, faced with an opportunity for reinvention, Rick traded his tape measure for a microphone and launched DESIGN BIZ SURVIVAL GUIDE, a multi faceted platform that includes a podcast, business coaching, and a lecture series all designed to inform and inspire interior design professionals. With literally thousands of conversations with designers and industry experts about the business of design under his belt, Rick leverages lessons learned and the generous advice of his peers to inform and empower design entrepreneurs across the country and abroad to build better, more profitable businesses.

Rick is proudly a past president of ASID Orange County, a past leader for NKBA SoCal, and is currently the president for the Orange County / Los Angeles chapter of IDS. When he’s not on air or on stage he spends his free time in the woods of Washington with his husband John and their Portuguese water dog Lucy where he plans to one day raise goats and chickens while continuing to inform, inspire, and empower design professionals near and far on the platform.
