I was talking to a client the other day and she was telling me how pleased and excited she was from her results after working with me.
If you have followed me for a while you will have heard me say "personal brand is what people think of when they hear your name". Your Personal Brand is so much more than your logo or what you wear.
I want you to meet my gorgeous client MJ. MJ was on my WOW NOW Personal brand coaching program. It was an amazing experience working with her. It was very interesting seeing her resisting spending time on herself.
I love the fact that this dress is so easy to wear. I am wearing red shoes with it, creating a balanced focal point all across my body. You notice the shoes, but you also notice the red across the dress.
Let's start with the fact that in theory, someone with a pear shape like me (hips wider than my torso) can look very unbalanced when wearing pattern (which enhances the area where it is worn) on the widest part of the body. For this reason, I only own only 3 or 4 patterned (very carefully picked) bottoms.
Today I want to share with you Louise's story about working together. We met 18 months ago and a couple of weeks ago she sent me this video (click the photo below to view) that came unexpectedly.
If there is something I have learnt through my own experience and the experience of working with my gorgeous clients it is the importance of making ME the most important person in my life.
I am the first to put my hand on for a shopping trip, I love shopping but for some of us I understand that it can be a challenge. Even the most experienced shoppers will make mistakes that can be frustrating and costly. So I have put together some strategies that will help you to have a more successful trip to the shops: Be clear on the items you want to buy and the money you are willing to spend. This will ensure you go home with fantastic purchases rather than items that are just going to end up at the op shop!
Creating the life of your dreams is both easy and difficult. It is easy if you know it requires clear goals, a powerful image and taking action every day. I would never have been able to transform my life from Engineer to Personal Brand Expert without these three key strategies
Your window of time for a first impression is about thirty seconds, that is the amount of time it takes someone at first meeting to create a judgement about you. It is partly your physical appearance but much more encompasses this swift judgement.
It is like taking a photo and telling a story from it, what story would your image tell? Does it reflect you truthfully or are you hiding your true self?
Choosing the right makeup can make a huge impact on your image, your face is often the first thing people will notice about you. One of the most important things to consider is your skin, it is the base upon which good makeup is built!
Maybe it is the change in season, perhaps you are just sick of having to dig through your wardrobe for a great outfit or you just need to update. Whatever the reason I have an easy system for you to follow that will leave you with a fantastic wardrobe.
If you want to travel light you need to be minimalistic. It is the time to focus on your neutral coloured clothes, like solid or two-tone black, white, dark blue, nudes, cream and grey, which are much easier to combine into different outfits.
Smile and the world smiles back! Give it a try, it works because it is almost impossible not to return a smile. We are programmed to imitate each other's behaviour.
A smile is one of the most important business tools you have, and the one most people frequently forget to use. The busyness of business and life often leave us reflecting the anxiety on our face.
Only about 7% of the meaning taken from our communication comes from the actual words we use. Approximately 38% is from tone of our voice and 55 % comes through non-verbal communication, which includes facial expressions, gestures and posture. Handshakes and a proper eye contact are part of that 55% so it is crucial to get them right!
It’s amazing how simple it is to create the life and business of your dreams when you have a very clear end goal in your mind and you take action every day towards that goal. The key to this is creating an impact everywhere you go and being remembered.
If you want to get the most out of your facebook page you need to start with your profile picture right
Our image says so much about us. we are judged on the spot by the way we look and act. our profile photo is even more important. people who we haven’t met us before just have that photo ‘in their hands ‘ to make a snap judgement about us, who we are, what we stand for, how approachable and even how capable we are.
I have seen so many beautiful women through my image consultancy in the last few years. I have always admired the power, amazing nature, strength and abilities of women, however, it never stops surprising me how hard we are on ourselves.
I am now on my way to Los Angeles to join one of my live events for my coaching certification program. This is such an amazing opportunity for me and I am more excited than at a shoe sale! For 4 days I am going to be in the same room with my awesome coach, Gina Devee and a group of like minded women who have been already a great support and inspiration during the last 6 months for me.
It is the perfect time to look at your wardrobe and create one that is inspiring and filled with easy to put together outfits. If you haven’t already started a new year cull, it’s a great time to get rid of the clothes that are just taking up valuable space.
Using this simple, yet powerful process, I have been able to reach so many goals, little and big. Are you going to give it a try? I am sure you will!
