‘To live is the rarest thing of all. Most people just exist.' - Oscar Wilde.
Have you ever secretly dreamed of reinventing yourself?
Perhaps you feel like you’re stuck in a mid-life bubble of work, kids and home, with a deep longing to feel and exude the kind of energy and magnetism you had in your twenties.
Maybe you feel an underlying sense of being lost, even though in your day-to-day life you have plenty of fun and laughter and work hard to progress within your corporate role.
Or it might be that your clothes don’t express who you really are and who you really are is lost beneath a pile of washing, work deadlines and a busy social calendar. And if you’re anything like me, those social events largely revolve around your children’s activities!
But despite these feelings of disconnection, you know that during 2018 something shifted. It’s as if you’re able to see clearly again; a deep knowing in your heart and soul that now is the time to take action to create the life you really want.
If you’ve been through a period of personal growth and are ready to step up to the next level and step out into the spotlight, then these top tips will help you to gain the confidence, promotion and recognition you desire.
• Align your dress style with your new-found inner confidence. Not only does your choice of clothes increase your assertiveness and positive self-image, it also affects how others see you. In a survey by OfficeTeam, 80% of executives believed that an employee’s choice of clothes can affect his or her chances of promotion. While a study by Wings for Success showed that 75% of recruiters believed a person’s style affects his or her job, salary and promotion prospects. If you’ve been stuck in a rut (we’ve all been there!) and are ready to leave behind the safety and familiarity of your comfort zone in order to pursue your career or business dreams, then now is the time to start dressing for the job you want.
• Get help with career progression, recruitment or new business development. Often we procrastinate about making big life and work changes because we aren’t sure exactly how or what we should be doing. If you’re fed up with feeling like you’re never making progress, unsure how to best promote yourself or want to try something completely new but lack direction and focus, then investing in personalised career coaching will equip you with the tools you need to feel empowered and create the positive impact you dream of.
• Open your wardrobe doors to a personal stylist and have fun shopping! Allowing a stylist into your home to critique your wardrobe could feel like the scariest step of all, but a personal stylist will take the time to understand your lifestyle and personality to offer bespoke styling ideas that can give you that extra ‘edge’ at work: boosting your assertiveness and enhancing your best assets. Plus, you’ll develop and define your own style along the journey which will enable you to shop more effectively in the future, saving time and money.

A few words from our clients:
"Thank you for all your support and help over the last few months - you've been a star. I'm so grateful and can't wait to start my new role in 2018!”
"I had forgotten until now that it's so important to invest time in myself and to stop and reassess more regularly. The job that suited me a while ago really doesn't work for me now and you've helped me work out what does.”
"I had a deep knowing of the job I wanted to do but I kept it buried and thought it wasn't possible - Katie uncovered this aspiration that I hadn't shared with anyone and has helped me make it a reality. She uses her intuition and many skills to help make the 'impossible' feel achievable.”
“I’m shouting out a stylist friend @styling_matters who has helped me enormously by doing a wardrobe edit and in-depth colour consultation – she is brilliant and has saved me £££ as I don’t make costly mistakes anymore – thanks Lynne you’re amazing – go follow her on Instagram – I love seeing what she wears every day.”
“You are the best teacher – I’ve learnt so much in the years you’ve been my personal stylist. It’s saved me a fortune, and a lot of time and stress too. Now my wardrobe is super organised, life is much easier. I look better, plus I have discovered my inner rock chick and I love that! It’s been a lot of fun along the way too. Thank you Lynne. Love you for empowering women everywhere.”
