MODA: Heating Up Your Brand

June is the perfect month for a mid-year review of your Personal and Professional Brand. For the next three months, we will share some game changing ideas that can really heat up your brand.   

As we review the first half of the year in order to improve our lives and businesses, we should be excited that we have a full 6 months to reach our goals. The goal for the month of June should be to HEAT UP YOUR BRAND! 

Here are a few ideas to inspire you!

Reconnect: Get together with old friends - not for business, but just for fun.

Be grateful: Send out thank you notes to all of your clients for the last 6 months and tell them you are thinking of them.

Update: Review and revitalize your social media sites and ensure you are representing your Personal and Professional Brand. If you don't know what it is contact us.

Imagine: Read a great book- email me for some suggestions.

Give back: Volunteer for an organization in need or help out a neighbor who has fallen on hard times.

Review: Take a day, or maybe two, to evaluate the last 6 months. Is your life, or the life of anyone else, better because of what you have done in the last 6 months? If nothing has improved, make immediate changes!

Enjoy: Eat some great ice cream it is summer after all!

Breathe: Plan a vacation (or staycation) no matter how short or long it may be…and take it.

Laugh: Go to the movies.

Remember: Say thank you more often.

While you may not find these brand igniters in the supposed brand guru's books, I can assure you that they will make you smile, bring some joy to your day and create a positive attitude that benefits everyone around you. No matter what is going on in your business or your life, nothing creates positive change like a positive attitude put into action.

Be certain and check out these great fashion ideas for the summer.  Success is knocking on your door...Can you recognize it? When it comes to Brand, Image, Fashion, Style and a better life, think of MODA Image and Brand Consulting. We help people succeed every day...At work, home and play.

How do you look professional during the hot summer months? Here are two tips that will help you to stay professional and cooler...(Click on the pictures below for links to purchase!)


Wear a sheath to escape the heat! Buy a breathable knit that has some give and maintains structure for a professional feel. Look for the ponte (four season) knit. It is both comfortable and versatile pair with tights, heels and a blazer as temps cool down. If you are uncomfortable with showing your knees - there are plenty of options that fall right below the knee!

There are days you must wear a blazer. Invest in a lightweight fabric for the warmer months and create a new look with each wear by pairing with patterned shirts. There are multiple options for lightweight blends let us guide you!


Next month: Celebrate Your Brand...

Being a Real Man

This is a great Father's Day for our family as we celebrate God's work. There is more to being a dad than having children - learning to be a father requires a father figure. Who is your father figure?

This Father's Day there are too many fatherless families. Tony Evan's message on Reversing the Curse of Fatherlessness, is one that everyone can benefit from hearing.  Give it a listen and share your thoughts!

Happy Father's Day!

Psalm 68:5 - Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation.

Yesterday's Successes are Tomorrow's Tarnished Trophies

Yesterday's Successes are Tomorrow's Tarnished Trophies

Have you ever met the salesperson or athlete who always remembers the big sale, the super year, that amazing season, or the year that the company Brand really took off?  We love our trophies, but the problem is that we can get caught looking at them too much and not striving after new successes. I can remember the Wendy's commercial, Where's the Beef,' and the dominant days of Dell Computer, or the Life cereal commercial, Mikey likes it!' These giant marketing triumphs helped to create brands that we can remember, yet today, Life cereal is no longer filling every cereal bowl and Wendy's is third in the burger wars.

Have you ever caught yourself looking at the past trophies of your life or business and failed to stay up to date? Do you find yourself thinking or even saying, I remember when...'  Success is fleeting and it can lead to stagnation. Take a moment to reflect. Are you still excited? Motivated? Seeking after new dreams and ambitions? How about work - Is your career stuck in the mud? Is your company brand improving or is the business playing the starring role in the movie Groundhog Day?

Trophies tarnish and so do past successes. Great brands are always re-evaluating themselves. This is true for one's Personal and Professional Brand and for a company's Corporate Brand.  Personal, Professional or Corporate Brands that drift are brands that are losing their influence and visibility. Trophies are exciting and you should celebrate your victories, but remember, today's silver trophy is tarnished by time.

The best Brands are the ones that constantly evaluate and then update. This saying is true when it comes to Brand…That was yesterday, what have you done for me lately? 

MODA Image and Brand Consulting is in the business of helping individuals and companies create, update, and communicate a winning Brand that keeps the trophies coming while bringing added value to your life and the company bottom line.

Please don't hesitate to call or email us for more information!
