Personal Note

from my heart....

My greatest wish is to see you succeed as an entrepreneur & image consultant. Today, Image consulting comes in different forms and with new opportunities.   We have personal stylists, online stylists, corporate Image consultants, etiquette experts and more.  The Style Educator is focused on working with individuals whether it be in person or as an online stylist. Having these skills will set you apart from any competitor and help you truly understand 

your client and their needs. 

Before you contact me for my pricing, I want you to know that in both my personal business and in my teaching I have worked very hard to make what I offer valuable. When I started this business, I had no income, I borrowed money from my husband to take my initial training course. It was such a big step and in my opinion so much money for a 10 day course. This did not include hotel accommodation or food either. I could only repay him after 2-3 years, because I did not feel ready to step out, even after that initial training. It was not adequate and I had to learn more before I felt confident to really start working this business. 

I want my training for you to be more than adequate.  I want you to feel that you can walk out of here and know exactly how to conduct a style and closet appointment; how to measure your client accurately and with confidence. I want you to know the steps to starting your business, how to register it and what sort of legal entity would be best for you. I want you to know how to conduct classes and workshops and to have a relationship with the stores and people you work with, that is beneficial to you all. My training fees reflect this. My 20 plus years of experience is invaluable, but I don't feel I have to inflate training fees to share this. I love what I do, I want others to love it too and be successful.  All of that being said, I would like you to call or email me for pricing. Please see the Training Courses Tab for how the modules run.

For those of you that are brand new to this industry and want to learn, please reach out with a personal message. For those of you who have experience, sometimes one needs to refresh and enhance your skills. I cater to all of you in this course material.  I really would love to chat with you first and find out your needs, you heart for this industry and your story.
