How Blogging Has Changed My Life

 

2 purple how blogging has changeed

Running a business is impossible without building relationships that are based on trust. One of the ways you can start building relationships with prospective clients and partners is to blog about your values and interests in becoming a personal style pro. It’s a simple tactic that allows your potential audience to get to know you before they consider hiring you. So consider blogging as an effective vehicle to connect and lay a foundation for future relationships with your audience.

Now even though blogging is a simple tactic, it can be challenging to consistently post and reveal details about your life. Recently, I met Deanna Koens through a private Facebook group. Deanna has been blogging for over a year. When I visited her blog, which is called SMEAR, I was impressed by the blog’s organization, crispness and overall design. I was also impressed with her consistency and frequency of posting. blogger yellow

When I was researching to start the StylistModi blog, I read about word counts and writing skill requirements. I was intimidated by these requirements. Then I realized the requirements are actually guidance. Deanna proves you simply need to have the desire to share your thoughts and ideas. And you can make your point quickly and succintly. She wrote a brief post about how blogging has changed her life, which is an inspirational but yet authentic explanation for why she blogs and how blogging has empowered her to feel more confident. You can read her blog post at the following link How Blogging Has Changed My Life by Deanna Koens.

I hope you gain inspiration from Deanna’s focus on blogging. Instead of being intimidated, simply focus on why you want to become a personal style professional and how you want to help people. From there the blogging topics and how to convey your ideas will come to life.

No Ugly Clothes

No ugly clothes #2

This is a common question I get from newer style professionals: How do I tell my client that their clothes are ugly? The short is: You don’t tell any client their clothes are ugly.

What’s beautiful, pretty or ugly are individual observations that are subject to an observers opinion. As professionals, we must strive to create a safe space where our clients can be vulnerable especially as they share their fears and insecurities.

This is why it’s important to focus on the client’s desired outcomes or goals for an appointment. Assess whether or not they have the right wardrobe, makeup or image tools to achieve their goals. Evaluate whether or not their clothes fit and flatter their body type and if they have the right tools to be perceived as needed. By focusing on the desired outcomes of your client you’ll provide objective feedback which are related to their goals. This type of approach assures your client’s feelings will not get hurt. And as bonus, your client will experience you as a kind and classy style professional, which is important for establishing long term client relationships.

First online class “Start Your Style Pro Business (Beta)”

This is the essential foundation program for starting your personal style business. The course guides you to turn your interest in fashion into a business where you help others look and feel confident. I wrote the program from my practical perspective as a business person who’s proficient with numbers, strategy and processes. Even though I invested $50,000 in my style consulting education, practical business concepts were missing from my training programs. Without clarity of how these concepts apply to a styling business it took me years to explain what I do, why I do it, who I can help and why my services are valuable.

Who should sign-up? Current or aspiring personal style professionals including fashion stylists, wardrobe consultants, personal shoppers with 0-2 years of experience or who operate primarily as a hobbyist.

What do you get? As no business is an overnight success, this course is an essential foundation for starting a personal styling business. The purpose of this foundation program is to save you time and money by making it easier for you to communicate your value so prospective clients understand how you can help them. Upon completing the course, you will gain the ability to: Enroll now HERE.
