It is known that image consultants make style and clothing suggestions to transform a person’s outward appearance. They are experts at bringing out the best in people, whatever each person’s career or lifestyle. Lauren has spent her professional life dedicated to positively and powerfully altering people’s image. She says it’s done in a way that “takes each individual’s unique message from the inside and expresses it authentically and effectively on the outside. It has transformed the lives of my clients around the globe propelling them to their greatest success.” www.LaurenSolomon.com
Some employees and business owners grab the first thing they see in the morning, where as others put thought into what is the most appropriate outfit for that day. Having an extensive wardrobe of all the latest fashions isn't necessary, however establishing your own professional image and a strong sense of individual personality and style is the key. Statistics show that: 95% of employers said a jobseekers personal appearance affected their opinion of the applicant's suitability for the job. 91% said they believe dress and grooming reflected the applicant's attitude toward the company. 61% said dress and grooming had an effect on subsequent promotions.
An article from Small Business Canada, reads: “Promotion isn't just advertising or press releases or sales events; promotion is also how you present yourself. Although we've all been advised not to judge people on our first impressions, we all do it. Worse, we form these judgments within two to thirty seconds of meeting someone for the first time! As a business owner, you want to ensure that everyone who meets you forms a positive first impression. After that, they'll be predisposed to think favorably of you. Creating a good first impression is especially crucial if you provide a service; every face-to-face contact you make reflects upon your service (and colors your business image).
