When most think of helping industries, they automatically envision the doctors, nurses, firemen, police officers, and others directly on the frontlines of health and safety, right? Well, today, we are here to talk about the personal stylist and image consultant working behind the scenes of the helping industry.
While you might not receive the awards and pats on the back that the firemen get, you, as a personal stylist and image consultant, are one of the vertebrae that makes up the helping industry. And, you’re putting out a lot of metaphorical fires burning the lives of your clients.
There’s so much more to our profession and services than just handing someone color swatches and styling them to look beautiful/handsome. What you do is more…so much more.
You’re offering your clients the ability to be their best, truest self and reach any and all goals they aspire to set. For some, this may mean finally matching their inward and outward appearance to find confidence and self-esteem. Other clients may have more targeted goals, such as finding a life partner, landing a job, or excelling within their professional career.
Shouldn’t you give yourself that same opportunity to be your own highest sense of self within your profession? Let AICI help you get there.
