Women Branding With the Help of an Image Consultant

Jun 14 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

Makeovers are one of the most “in” thing nowadays. From women homemakers, to bachelor yuppies, to kids that have no sense of style and aging men who are awkwardly dressed for their ages-makeovers seem to define how a person is. Because of this rampant need to consult experts on the way that people look even image consultants have different specialization.

But, the biggest chuck of the society that image consultants cater to, are the women. Maybe because it is innate for women to be conscious about the way they look especially when they appear in public. Image consultants-especially for working women that are professional-are very important because these people do not only monitor the overall lifestyle and also their lives.

Among the kinds of people that are in need of help through makeovers usually those women who don’t have the time to take care of their appearance due to lack of time such as working moms and stay home mothers. The reason for this that these people are some of the hardest working people on the planet and the people with the least time on their hands to worry about the way they look.

But why is it important for these people to look good? For women homemakers, sometimes it’s a little too much if they put on makeup and dress fabulous. But the truth is that not because they are stay home moms they should forget about looking good. Image consultants that focus on stay home moms’ image have a few things to consider which include the age of the person and the type of lifestyle that they have.

For stay home moms, the major components that an image consultant should pay attention to include clothing, including color and “line” or style of garments; accessories from head to toe; hair; and makeup.

When an image consultant audits a woman’s closet they should look in to these things so that they could build the woman that they want to build. In fact they don’t need to build from the ground up. They could start from finding the right clothes that they could still use and make sure that they look good with the style and the brand that they would want to see.

Women branding

Going back to branding yourself, branding means having a personal style that’s distinctly your own and that could stand out among other styles. It is important to have a personal brand because it is what makes us different from another person.

Branding is like having a name that would stick and people would remember. How many times has this situation happened to you? You are in a party and you keep mingling among the guests and you are meeting a lot of people. After the party, you accidentally bump into one of the people you happened to meet there. You say hi and the person acknowledges you but they can’t remember your name or it’s the other way around. Branding is important because it makes people remember who you are. It’s like when you say Marilyn Monroe, you will immediately remember the mole and the white dress or when you say Elvis Presley, the sideburns and the tassels come in to mind. Now that ‘s branding.

When you brand yourself, you put your signature on the things that you wear and tell other people that this is you. Branding doesn’t have to be expensive clothes and designer products. When you brand yourself, you need to take into consideration the image that you want to portray.

Women’s image consultants have their hands full all the time with the different types of women they have to work with. But one thing is for sure when it comes to them-nothing is impossible.

Coaching or Consulting-The Difference

Jun 13 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

It seems that everyone either has a consultant or a coach. I wear the title of Life Coach/ Hypnotherapist a.k.a Metaphysical Healer–Mind, Body and Spirit. I am often asked what the difference is between a coach and a consultant–how to know which is needed.

To answer this question we need to define the terms–Coach and Consultant. These words have become as common in today’s business world as Kleenex is to facial tissue.

Having been a consultant to Fortune 500 companies and a Coach, I give a first-hand definition. A consultant is a professional with specific areas of experience and expertise, who facilitates management and organizational change and/or provides subject matter expertise on technical, functional and business topics during development and/or implementation. In other words a consultant seeks to provide answers to business problems for their clients using a systematic analysis process, then offers solutions and is often retained to implement those solutions.

The consulting process may involve a team of experts. The analysis phase can be extensive and take several months. Employees, systems, and processes are assessed. Once complete, solutions are recommended and the company decides what if any recommendations will be implemented. A single project can take months or sometimes years to complete depending on the nature of the endeavor.

A Coach is a professional who is trained in a particular discipline or modality to foster individual internal change whereby that individual can achieve specific goals, improve relationships and become a more effective person overall. Like an athletic coach, a business or life coach fosters change, inspires, encourages, is a sounding board for ideas and holds the person accountable for achieving their goals and implementing change.

Business or personal coaching has become more popular in recent years and is what I consider the most effective approach to personal and professional change. Like the consulting process, there are assessments made, discoveries revealed and solutions recommended.

With coaching, the changes come from within. You explore your strengths and address issues unique to you vis-à-vis your career, relationships, etc. that are affecting your success and wreaking havoc in your work or personal relationships, your processes and your inner being–Mind, Body and Spirit. From this perspective the coaching process empowers you to create the changes you desire.

The coaching process is direct, focused and combines creating the future while healing the past with measurable results. Through this process your personal and professional life is synergistically rewarded with positive transformation.

Coaches often specialize in a specific area–personal coaching or business coaching. Some coaches address both. The coaching process can be a one-one-one or small group experience and often focuses on a specific perceived issue, such as management skills, assertive communication, decision making, planning or development.

In summary:

Consulting is a series of systematic and specific changes implemented by a professional, whose experience and expertise is congruent with the perceived needs.

Coaching is the process of exploring personal strengths and weaknesses to make the necessary changes in your behavior, beliefs and being held accountable while you implement the series of steps to create specific changes.

How do you determine which one you need? You may need both. It depends on your objective and the level of skill needed to achieve your desired goals. Most people do not need a coach to implement technological, management or organizational changes within their company. However, you may need coaching to support your decision making, problem solving and/or building stronger relationships and the developmental changes required to effect these changes.

6 Considerations When Choosing Customer Service Consulting Firms

Jun 12 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

If you’ve looked in the correct spots, you should have noticed encouraging signs from the economy lately. For those of us that keep a pulse on the retail field, this recent holiday season was a good one, perhaps a little better than we all expected. Shoppers were back in stores, products were moving, and dollars were exchanging. And if you’re like many other retailers out there, you are probably thinking that it’s time to kick up investments in your customer service, time to make sure your employees are delivering the best customer experience can they can provide. You want your brand to stand out in the crowd, so you’ve decided to look into customer service consulting.

Great idea.

With the help of technology and innovation, customer service consulting firms have come a long way since their humble beginnings. Here are some things to consider when choosing the firm that’s best for you, and how to go about vetting a consulting firm you may be interested in:

  1. Accreditation: This is easily overlooked, but extremely important. Inquire to see if the customer intelligence and research provider you’re looking into is part of industry associations, such as the Mystery Shopping Providers Association (MSPA) or a similar network.
  2. Services: Know what services they provide and what you are getting. Are they a mystery-shopping-only provider? Many firms offer a full menu of services, including customer feedback surveys, software, and on-site consultation. It’s all well and good to have one shopper’s reaction to your customer service experience, or to have a list of metrics printed out for you, but how do you make sense of it? The best firms will do this for you. Ask yourself: how will this firm address my company’s complete needs?
  3. Reputation: This goes beyond just asking your contacts and friends (although there is something to be said for this practice as well). Find a local business that has a similar setup to yours, while not being a direct competitor, and ask them. Put it right out there. Ask: “Would you consult with them again?” Other resources for recommendations include local business and retail associations that you may (or may not, even) be a member of.
  4. View Their Website: You can’t always trust and assess providers solely based on their online presence, but often the best firms have made it a point to have an online presence that is as impressive as their product. You can ask yourself: How does this particular firm represent itself online? Does it show care and passion for the services they provide? Do they provide samples of their work? How is their customer service?
  5. View Their Portfolio: Good firms are proud of their portfolio and will be happy to share it with you. You can often find this information on their website. If it’s not, call or visit them and ask.
  6. Get On The Phone: Call the consulting firm itself and chat. Do their values and passions align with your brand’s? Have they worked in your specific sector before? The more questions you have for them, the better. Remember, they are working for you. Tell them up front: “I’m interested in delivering the best customer experience possible,” and see what they say. Then ask for references and be sure to follow up with them.

The best part about searching for a customer service consulting firm is that the people you will be dealing with will be experts in customer service. This should be evident throughout your entire experience with the potential firm. If it’s not, move on to the next one. Keep searching until you feel absolutely comfortable with your complete experience. Do this, and the chances of your overall satisfaction will greatly improve.

Consulting Jobs – The Latest 3 Tips to Find a Consulting Job

Jun 11 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

If you take pride in helping other people to get to where they would like to be by sharing your knowledge and your experiences, a consulting job might just be perfect for you. Finding a consulting job cannot get easier these days as the demand is soaring high. As long as you are considered the best in your chosen niche, you will surely not find it challenging to convince people to sign up.

Here’s how you can find a consulting job:

1. Start a career as a freelance consultant. If you want to have yourself as your own boss and if you want to have control over your working hours, I recommend that you start a career as a freelance consultant. There are pros and cons in taking this route. For example, you will be responsible in finding your own clients and in selling yourself and your services. If you are unable to bring in clients, you’ll most likely not to earn a single penny. I suggest that you weigh the advantages and disadvantages. If you are okay with them then, go ahead and start your career.

2. Apply to consulting firms. If you want a guaranteed paycheck every 15th and 30th of the month and if you don’t want to spend time looking for clients to serve, I recommend that you consider working for top consulting firms. Today, there are so many consulting firms who are looking for competent and reliable consultants. To increase your chances being hired, make sure that you have relevant educational background, experiences, and trainings. You must also possess great communication, analytical, and people skills. Include all these information when writing your resume so you can capture the attention of your potential employers.

3. Start your own consulting firm. If you think that you have what it takes to launch your very own consulting firm then, by all means build your own business today. By doing so, you’ll have great chances of earning thousands or even millions of dollars per year. Read and learn about running a business as much as you can. It would help if you can hire a business coach who can bring in knowledge, advice, and guidance so you can get started on the right foot. As the key to success of any business is its people, make sure that you only hire the best consultants who can offer your clients with great service.

Image Consulting To Boost Your Self Confidence

Jun 04 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

Hiring an image consultant is an important decision. Sometimes you don’t even realize you need one in the first place. Speaking from personal experience, one of the most important reasons why I chose to work with an image consultant was to achieve high level of self confidence.

Confidence is more of an attitude, rather than the scores of talents you might have. When you stop worrying about what you don’t have, but belief more in the abilities you already have, that’s what is called confidence. And this is the confidence, which will move you forward in life to achieve more success.

The truth is you’re your biggest critic. You don’t need your mother, father, partner, spouse, or even your friends to critique your every move. You do that all by yourself, and sometimes, it’s a tad more harsh than necessary.

So in such a state, it’s often useful to have an outsider a.k.a. an image consultant to bring you out of the rut. An image consultant uses different strategies to help you build your confidence like helping you dress smarter, encouraging better body language, bringing out your uniqueness, and so on.

For instance, when you know how to dress to impress, you don’t feel so conscious about your appearance, and hence automatically feel great about yourself. And this great feeling shows in the way you carry yourself around others, and when you interact with people around you.

Your body language can tell others if you’re feeling tired, depressed, or confident. If you’re slowly treading your way, others know you’re feeling tired. If you’re walking with your slumped shoulders, you’re most likely depressed or worried about something. However, when you’re walking quickly with your head straight up, shoulders back, and making eye-contact with people on your way, you’re a picture of healthy confidence.

One neat tip I received from my own image consultant years ago is something I still use today – make a habit to dish out a genuine compliment to at least one person every day. This way you’ll look for the best in others, and consequently bring out the best in yourself. And don’t forget, you’ll also make a positive impression on others.

These tactics offered by an image consultant can help you improve your perception about yourself. You’ll see how much you have going for you, and that of course will motivate you to succeed even more in life.

Different Types of Building Inspections and When You Need Them

Jun 03 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

If you are looking at investing your hard-earned money on a new home, then before you make the all-important decision it is important to find out whether the property you are interested in has no problems or defects. This is why a home inspection in Sydney or elsewhere is vital prior to purchasing.

There are many types of inspections that should be done before you buy a new house or move into an old one. Here are some of the most common types of inspections and when they are necessary.

Building Inspection

A building inspection is usually performed by a professional inspector,Guest Posting who will check for any structural damage in the foundation, roofing, plumbing, electrical wiring and heating systems. This type of inspection can range from simple to very thorough, depending on what needs checking up on. The inspector may also provide tips about how to maintain your home or commercial building so you don’t have problems in the future. This is why getting a pre-purchase inspection report in Sydney is so vital.

Home Inspection

A home inspection is usually performed by an inspector who has been certified for many years after completing required training courses. This thorough type of inspection will check all the systems and components of the house, including appliances, ventilation, electrical wiring and plumbing fixtures. During construction inspections prior to closing on a new build project, inspectors typically follow the plans with utmost precision in every stage along the way before they issue their final report at completion.

Home Inspections in Sydney and other cities are usually performed by an inspector who is very experienced in identifying problems around buildings or homes that may not be visible otherwise. They often have completed special classes to become able to perform these types of inspections properly if needed during renovation projects or when buying or selling property. It is vaguely different from other building inspections because it focuses mainly on residential homes and isn’t as extensive or technical.

Timber Pest Inspection

Termites can wreak havoc in a home and you won’t even know it until something terrible happens. This is why getting a timber pest inspection in Sydney is very important. Termites are attracted to moist, warm conditions and they can completely decimate a home in just a short amount of time without the owner even knowing. A timber pest inspection will check for any sign of termite infestation or damage, as well as fungal decay which is something else that these pesky creatures love feasting on. They are pests that can cause extensive damage to your home in a very short amount of time, so it is important to have this inspection done before you buy or sell property.

It’s always a good idea to have an experienced pest control company inspect your home or business property on a regular basis. They’re trained professionals who know exactly where and what conditions to look for when it comes to infestations. Not only do these inspections help identify infestations at their earliest stages, but they allow you take action against them quickly with proper treatment plans along with follow-up inspections until all pests have been eradicated.

Swimming Pool Inspection

Pool safety inspections are also important in Australia if you are thinking of getting a home with a pool, as it is a legal requirement. Pool Safety Inspections in Sydney and elsewhere are usually performed by an inspector who has been trained and certified to perform this type of inspection properly, and they will identify the different types of risks that could be present around your pool as well as issues with chlorine levels or other chemicals. They will also identify safety issues which will need to be addressed prior to giving a certificate of conformity. A swimming pool safety inspection is often performed as part of a home and pool package. This will allow the inspector to identify any potential issues with your new property, which can be an advantage because it saves you from having to call in two separate companies who may charge more for their services. It also ensures that there aren’t multiple people going through your new home, so it reduces the risk of someone overlooking something important.

Mould Inspection

Mould can be quite harmful to people suffering from breathing problems, allergies, asthma and other respiratory conditions. The best way to prevent any problems is by doing a mould inspection before purchasing or moving into your dream home. A professional mould inspector will check all of the visible surfaces for signs of water damage, overgrown vegetation in exterior drainage areas which could be harbouring spores, as well as inspect air quality inside. Mould can also be a sign of water damage or leaking pipes, which are often times not visible to the naked eye. A mould inspection will also check for any signs of drainage problems, standing water in crawlspaces, and other areas where moisture may be trapped. Any evidence of hidden leaks should be reported immediately so that they can be properly resolved before further damage is done.

Radon Test

Radon tests are important in order to check for dangerous levels of this gas in the air. Radon is a colourless, odourless radioactive gas that can cause cancer if you are exposed to it for long periods of time. The test will check for elevated levels of radon in the air by analysing samples taken from inside your home or business. You may need multiple tests depending on how large and open your structure is, so these tests should be conducted before construction begins, after major renovations have been done to the building, as well as while any heating systems are being tested.

Sewer Line and Septic Tank Checks

Sewer lines and septic tank issues can cause a lot of problems in residential and commercial areas. This is because when they are not working properly, that can cause waste to back up into homes or businesses during rain storms or flooding conditions. When this kind of issue occurs, it may be a good idea to have septic tank inspections done in order to determine the best way forward with rectifying issues. It is also important because sewer line problems can occur due to tree roots growing too close to the piping, which means you will need a plumber present for these inspection services as well, so everything gets fixed correctly from both ends.

Environmental Testing for Lead and Asbestos

Inspection for lead paint and asbestos aren’t necessarily inspections, but you should take them into consideration if buying property built before 1980 in Australia, or anywhere else really. The main concern here isn’t so much about immediate dangers from these materials during renovations, which can pose a risk if not handled correctly, but whether there was previous exposure to asbestos /lead paint within the home at some point. If that’s the case then working out how big a risk, you’re dealing with will help you decide what to do next.

In general, there are different types of building inspections, each serving a specific purpose and checking for problems in various areas. It is important to be totally sure of the property you intend buying, because you don’t want to have to make additional payments for rectification and repairs after investing your money on a property. Always get the services of a professional company or inspector, so that you can be sure that the job will be done right.

How To Get Approval To Keep Pets In Your Strata Unit

Jun 03 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

Owning pets can be a great experience, they are loyal and loving and provide many hours of entertainment for both adults and kids. However, you may not know that this is not always the case in strata units. Strata unit owners often face strict rules about keeping pets in their units, with some even prohibiting them altogether.

There are many reasons why these restrictions exist,Guest Posting but one of the main ones is due to insurance requirements for strata buildings; it’s more likely that strata policies will exclude damages caused by pet-related incidents than other types due to an increased risk of injury or illness when there are animals living in close proximity to humans. If you are thinking of moving into a strata unit, it is important to get a strata inspection in Sydney so that you know early where you stand regarding your pet.

Usually, strata unit owners are required to seek approval from the governing body of their building before they can keep a pet in their home. This process may seem intimidating, but with some patience and guidance it’s easy to get through this step successfully, without ending in heart break.

The first thing that every Strata owner should do when thinking about getting an animal into their apartment (or even having one already) is checking if there are any rules regarding animals in the bylaws or covenants. You can learn this easily through a strata report in Sydney. If there aren’t then it’s possible that no written consent will be needed at all; however, once these documents have been read over, you can always contact the Strata Company for any clarifications needed.

The second thing a person should do is speak to their neighbours and let them know about the animal they plan on getting, before it becomes a problem. It’s best not to keep an animal as a surprise since many people may already have allergies or just don’t want animals around at all. Most strata units will require written consent from every single neighbour who has shares in that unit (which means you will need permission from everyone even if your home was meant for one person), so be sure to give yourself plenty of time; however, once all approvals are gained, there shouldn’t be anything stopping you and your furry friend becoming friends with the whole neighbourhood in your strata scheme in double quick time.

In general, you will need to follow the ensuing procedure when thinking of getting a pet into your strata unit.

Find out what regulations are in place for pets.
By getting a strata report in Sydney you can find out what regulations are in place for pets, and whether in fact, they are allowed in your strata.

Check your strata’s bylaws to see if they have any clauses about pet ownership.
All rules and regulations regarding pet ownership are laid out in the strata’s bylaws, which you can get during a strata inspection in Sydney. A quick check of these will let you know what is expected when it comes to pet ownership.

Talk to other owners in the building and find out their opinions on pets.
You may first want to see what your neighbours think about pets in the building. Talk to them and see if they would be open to a furry friend living with you. It’s important that your neighbours are on board for pet ownership before going any further because there may be complaints from other unit owners in the future, so it is best to get their input up front.

If you have already decided that this is something you want long term, then perhaps finding out who might complain when introducing an animal into your life will help move things along more smoothly when you do finally ask permission from the strata council. In most cases, people can simply talk to others in their buildings or even email everyone individually asking what they think of having a dog or cat in a unit without too much trouble.

Present a petition with the signatures of all owners who want to keep their pets.
You may not be the only one in your building who needs to ask for permission, in which case you can do up a petition form and get all the other people to sign it. This will save you a lot of time and effort, but also show the strata council that many people are in favour of this request being granted.

However, if there is no one else who needs to ask for permission or support your application then presenting a petition might not be necessary. The general rule here is to have an open conversation with everyone living around you so if they do have problems with pets becoming a part of your life at home, they can voice their concerns early on when any kind of discussion takes place about allowing animals into the building.

Provide proof that you will be responsible for cleaning up after your pet, including a letter from a veterinarian confirming that your pet is healthy and well-behaved.

Consider getting an insurance policy for your pet.
Getting a pet insurance may be a good idea to consider. It might be a good idea to get pet insurance just in case your dog gets into some kind of accident or something happens, then you will have the money for medical treatment and so on.

The best way to get the strata corporation’s approval is to have a meeting with your neighbours and show them that you are committed. If you can convince everyone in the building, then it will be easy for your application to go through without any problems. This is because if one person doesn’t want it, they could say no or put up an objection which would mean getting unanimous consent isn’t possible anymore.
