Why You Should Hire An Image Consultant?
In this blog post I am listing 6 reasons why your should work with an Image Consultant. I can help you to put your best foot forward in any situation, help you to gain more confidence and allow you to enjoy your life to the fullest. One single consultation can already do so much, let alone a full image consulting package.
Getting professional advice is nowadays widely accepted on all life areas and there is a coach for almost anything. I love that because what’s the point of struggling on your own when you can hire someone to hold your hand throughout the process. I believe that this way you’ll gain better and longer lasting results faster.
The choice is of course highly personal and I won’t be judging you if working on your personal image is not on the top of your list right now. But I want to show you what kind of benefits there are so you can make an educated choice when the time is right. Maybe it’s now or maybe next month is a better time. Either way I am not keen on selling you something that is not a good fit for your situation. That’s why I try to stay as transparent as possible about my work.
You might have read my posts 3 Reasons To Hire Me and Unexpected Advantages of Hiring An Image Consultant that have given you some good insight. In this post we look deeper in the benefits of working with an image consultant. Some points might come as a total surprise so keep on reading!
1. Enhance Your Personal Image And Style
A professional image consultant can help you to enhance your personal image and style. I look at my clients from multiple angles: Their appearance, behavior, communication style, sense of style, overall poise and even their online presence. These elements are all parts of your personal image and to me it’s so much more than just clothes.
With me you can select an area that you want to work on. Together we dive deep into the image that you project to others. Is there room for improvement? Sometimes it’s your business style that we need to work on, sometimes we will dive into your social media presence. Often one area supports another, and you’ll gain benefits beyond the actual package that you have purchased from me.
2. Increase Your Executive Presence
The old saying goes “Dress for the job you want” and to me it still carries some weight. While traditional business style has gone through the wringer, the importance of our image has become even bigger. People continue to work from home and our online personas will be all many will ever know. Being the right cultural fit and belonging to a community are still strong workplace and lifestyle trends that you can’t possibly overlook.
Your executive presence is a complex mix of your reputation, digital presence, poise and stamina. Managing this combination is a challenge but it can definitely be learned and mastered. You too can become a strong, trustworthy (thought) leader! Your superpower is how well you can use your personal image as your secret weapon.
Disclaimer: This has absolutely nothing to do with being toxic, abusive or opportunistic. See my last point about being a real (thought) leader.
3. Be More Confident
Very often your success comes down to confidence. It’s an area we all need to work from time to time. There is nobody in this world who is born with an infinite and stable self-confidence. Actually challenging it and working on it is a sign of a healthy self-image.
Working on your personal image and style can be a huge boost to your confidence. Most of my clients come to me when they are in cross-roads of life, such as:
- New challenging job in a new role, new company or working with new business partners
- Looking for your dream job on the tough job market
- You have a new relationship status -or perhaps you are dating again
- Major changes in your physical appearance and lifestyle
- Getting adjusted to a new social circle due to move, relocation or new life situation
I enjoy seeing my clients’ self-esteem picking up and improving dramatically. Sometimes it’s just the conversation and getting a second unbiased opinion that makes all the difference. Often my clients just need that nudge to the right direction and the rest seems to fall into place on it’s own.
4. Gain Better Style
Getting better style might feel like chasing an unicorn but it actually is attainable. I believe that great style belongs to everyone and you deserve to look your best. With enough creativity this can be reached with a very small budget. We all know that money won’t bring you style, it just allows you to have more.
To me REAL style comes from within. It’s those little fashion details, the way you carry yourself and the way you combine your clothes. Technically you could wear the same little black dress for the rest of your life and be the best dressed person wherever you may go. Continuous chase for new can leave you feeling drained.
Why not just sort it all out on one go? You could enjoy other aspects of life while other spend their Saturdays queuing in crowded shops. That’s tempting isn’t it?
5. Learn To Dress With Ease
Learning to dress with ease is a big motivation to visit a personal stylist. Imagine how much more time you would have if you didn’t have to think about the way you look? You would probably enjoy your life more too. Having your personal style in check at all times will release a great chunk of capacity to do other things.
If you’re tired of shopping non-stop and still hating most of your clothes, it might be the right time to get in touch with me. I will help you to get your current wardrobe under control and help you choose better clothes with less effort. Some of my clients never want to shop alone ever again, not because they can’t, but because with a professional personal shopper it’s just so much more efficient.
6. Be More Memorable
While many people prefer to blend in, it’s always the most successful people who stand out. And by standing out, I don’t mean screaming me-me-me, but making meaningful connections and leaving an impact with everyone you interact with. I am always talking about being memorable for the right reasons and it goes way beyond your outfit.
Remarkable people have something in common: They are memorable. It’s often the way they made others feel in their presence, the way they carried themselves with grace during a dump fire, their wast kindness and their enormous compassion. Are you memorable for these reasons?
Taking you personal image further than style is the key but your fashion choices should support the image that your project. After all, it’s the element about you that people see when you enter the room. With the help of an image consultant you can reinforce your personal brand through your style and stay in people’s mind.
