First, let me "Thank You" for the calls, e-mails, and texts I received after that devastating tornado hit AL.....My family is fine....Join me in praying for the families who were not as fortunate.......
I ask all of you, "Is it Time to Change Your Image"? This question can be applied to your personal and professional life. Changing your personal image can start with something as simple as a hairstyle or an outfit. It can also apply to your personal lifestyle. Making changes in different areas of your life, from your attitude, to painting a room in your home.
Many may ask, "how will I know when I need to make a change"? You'll know when you are tired, unhappy, and/or not getting the expected results. In life, we must realize, if you continue to do what you have always done, you're going to get the same results. If you can't see growth or progress from what you are doing in your personal or professional life, then, it's time to make a change.
Professionally, when you're ready to take your business to a new level, you may need to seek the help of an Image Consultant to work with you or your company. The Image Consultant can assist with brand strategy, media training, and much more. This person or agency can assist in "rejuvenating" your appearance to the public. In terms, your new business image will attract more customers. And, more customers mean, more revenue.
Many celebrities have Image Consultants and Wardrobe Stylists. The Wardrobe Stylist acts somewhat as a personal shopper. Selecting the proper clothes for the celebrity. If you feel you're not as strong in this area or you need someone with a "bit" more expertise in this area, hire a wardrobe stylist to assist with creating a new image for you and/or your business.
One person can hold both titles or you can hire multiple people. When hiring a person, be sure to consult their references, be sure they have a pleasant disposition and attitude. Because you will have to work in close proximity with this person(s). Be sure they are not emotional, opinionated, rude, and unprofessional.
Many of you have made comments regarding my website: www.tonilove.com. At the beginning of this year, I "changed my image". It took a team of people to assist in getting the results I envisioned. They are: Maria Palladino, my website designer, Kris Cole, wardrobe stylist, Derek Blanks, photographer, Saisha Beechum, make-up artist, and Makeda Smith, public relations manager.
As I've stated in the past, surround yourself with the right people. Maria and Makeda have been on my team for years, advising and assisting me throughout my career. Kris, Derek, and Saisha worked with me for the first time on this project. Many of you have seen Derek Blanks photos on magazine covers such as: "Essence", he's shot photos of Angela Bassett, Jennifer Hudson, Monique, Trey Songz, Usher, and many more; as well as the "Alter Ego" photos featured on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta".
Until next time......
