Have you ever had a transformational experience? What did it feel like? Did it change you forever?
I have been a practicing image consultant for a little over a year now, and I have to tell you I have witnessed women having MAJOR transformational experiences, and it has changed me forever. Let me tell you about some of them…
All the women have three things in common:
- They had been thinking about creating change for themselves, some women actually thought about getting their colors done or finding someone to help them shop for clothes. But they didn’t know how to go about finding a style consultant. So they drew me into their lives in a “law of attraction” way (ie. randomly sitting next to me at a conference and striking up a conversation) In any case they knew they wanted to change their personal appearance which they hoped would change them in a deeper, more significant way.
- They were wide open to hearing my color and style advise, even though it meant that many of the clothes in their closet would have to go. They were open to the change.
- They were 40+ years old, and had never really been sure how to get that put-together look. Shopping was an overwhelming experience for them, and some of the women avoided it as much as possible, shopping only once or twice a year.
The look on a woman’s face when she is finally dressed in the colors and styles that make her feel completely beautiful and radiant in her skin is like “coming home.” She stares into the mirror and finally sees the real, powerful truth of who she is. And she never looks back….
It’s pretty powerful. I think about how the transformation in a woman’s life moves outward to affect her loved ones, friends and acquaintances in a meaningful way. It’s like throwing a pebble into the water and watching the ripples of energy radiating out.
