So I have to tell you a secret. I HATE shopping!!
Well that’s not exactly true, I like spending money on clothes and wearing new clothes but I hate everything about actually researching what to wear and going to the shops themselves.
Can anyone relate!?
Recently I have been working on a project to completely overhaul my online coaching offerings and decided while I was at it I would get a image consultant to look at my brand.
Part of the consult was to have a personal styling session over three full days (yes I said three full days) with the amazing gals at Colette Werden: Authentic Personal Branding. Wow!! What a fantastic experience. Here are some of my before photos…
Now for the record, I didn’t really think I was dressing badly, but here are the 3 reasons why I think it’s now crucial for any female entrepreneur or female professional (or male actually) to consider getting an Image Consultant or Personal Stylist if you are looking to level up your career….
1. I now have a crystal clear idea on who my customer is!
I know, weird right? But as part of this process I really got down to thinking about how I wanted to be perceived day-to-day and by ‘WHOM’.
This really made me think again about my client avatars and who it is I’m serving. More interestingly, it got me clear on how I want them to feel about me when they see me, whether online, on stage or in person.
2. My general confidence has sky-rocketed!
I’m not sure if it’s a ‘Dumbos feather’ phenomenon but every time I step out the door or walk into a new office I literally have people stop and give me amazing compliments.
They really take notice of of me and in particular what I’m wearing. It’s like the investment I made in myself has really made an energetic shift in how people are relating to me. I’m so hot right now……Seriously!
3. My morning outfit decision fatigue is gone!
As part of my consult I received over 100 pictures of ways to style the outfits in my wardrobe so I never have to make a decision about what to wear again!! Excuse me while I regress to my teenage self and have a small ‘squeal’ moment, because it’s actually like I have a Clueless wardrobe of my dreams!! Check it out below:
Wow, this totally frees up my busy business mind to work on my clients problems or my next big idea – freaking awesome!
So here are some after photos, the photos are not great quality but I think you will agree with the epic shift in how I’m presenting myself.
