The #1 concern I get from any woman who finds out I'm an image consultant is:
"How do I show up as myself without being 'too much.'"
So many times in our history, women have been told to temper their feelings, emotions, voices and opinions, and often we'd find ourselves inconsistent with how we'd present ourselves - in turn doing a disservice to how people saw our contribution. In short, we...
Happy Solstice today as we mark the halfway mark of our planet’s trip around the sun this year.
My closet friends know I love a solstice. In the summer, it’s the longest day of the year (today). In the winter, it’s the shortest and being in Northern Alberta, it’s always an awe-inspiring day.
The sun won’t set until 9:51 pm tonight.
I love that, but I also love what...
When you have clear confidence in your purpose, you can go years and years without seeking outside recognition. But when it comes, it's a chance to pause and reflect on what others see in you. Here's what happened to me this week.

It's mostly well-meaning but too generic and short-sighted.
While there is some truth to having to put yourself and...
Evolving always feels weird.
In the past couple of years, we've all shifted what we knew to be true about everything in ourselves and our lives, and for the growth-focused folks out there, it's very typical that the idea of going back to who you were, what you did and how you did it before seems foreign.
This discomfort is a signal. (Actually, all discomfort is a signal.) It's telling you...
You might think the shirt you put on this morning is just a shirt. But oh, no. Let me tell you!
THE SNAP OF A FINGER! That's all you've got to communicate your best!
In 3-minutes, I shared why the appearance part of your image is CR-I-T-CAL for projecting yourself, so people see you, take notice, remember (and above all else) choose you!
And it's not just me saying it this time - it's...
