If you have been following me for a while you might have noticed the changes in the direction of my business over the last few years.
I started my business 9 years ago! Wow! I can hardly believe it is that long! 9 years since I left a successful career in the corporate world working as an engineer to pursue my passion.
It hasn't been easy at all, but it has been the most fulfilling and exciting experience of my life. I started my business as an Image Consultant, very soon after I started offering public speaking and training on first impressions and executive image. A few years after that I started doing some consulting for companies and individuals. Very quickly I saw the need to get certified as a coach so I did.
It has been in the last 4 years that I grew to realise that the term 'Personal branding' explains my approach and what I do so much better . And today Personal branding and presence makes total sense to me, my experience, my passion for what I do and the actual transformation and guidance I offer to my clients.
My work starts by helping you develop a successful mindset, followed by the tools and strategies to help you create powerful first impressions and the loop is closed with the formula to create the impact and influence you desire.
Your image is still a component of my work, but there are so many other elements to what I do. That is why it is time for me to say goodbye to The Outfit of the Week, and say hello to a more holistic email from me on Mondays!
So I hope you stay, and we can now start digging deeper into what it means to develop an authentic personal brand that allows you to go to the next level in your career or business.
Let's get to the last outfit of the week!
Same top for a super casual and a more professional look.
All I changed was the bottom and the shoes.
You will be surprised at how many options you already have in your wardrobe to maximize what you already own.
It is all about changing the way you are mixing your clothes.
So why don't you go into your wardrobe now and put together a top with a bottom in a way you have never done before?
Remember that your clothes should be in total alignment with who you are. Are they sending the right message about you? Are you standing tall and happy with what you see in the mirror?
Have an amazing week!
