Is your Personal and Professional Brand inspiring others?
clear

The storms of life will come when the wind blows, will your Brand withstand the storm?

I recently gave a Brand/Image seminar to a group of students.  I often have the opportunity to speak and teach at universities, and the questions are always very interesting.  One student recently asked me a question that many people think, yet few have the courage to say out loud.  He asked, "What if you are associated with someone who has fallen down, done something they shouldn't, had a lapse in integrity and even potentially hurt others by doing so how do you disassociate with them?"  The answer is simple; a Brand built on a solid foundation can align itself with one that is weak or broken and help that Brand to rebuild.  A Brand built on integrity has the option to disassociate,' or not, but a person who has a Brand built on integrity will most likely choose grace and forgiveness over desertion.  What is your Brand built on?  The storms of life will come when the wind blows, will your Brand withstand the storm?  Does your Brand help others and give them hope for restoration?

Sometimes, in fact, most times, the best way to help another person is by sharing a personal testimony.  I am passionate about helping individuals and companies achieve and become all that they can.  The past ten years have been filled with challenges, and even more, blessings.  Like every human, I have grown on issues of profession and personal character.  There are values I now hold out as absolutes and I have a deep appreciation for my successes as well as my failures.  The events, education and experiences of life drove me to my business and to create my own, Personal and Professional Brand.'

Life, business and relationships will always be illuminated by positive HOPE when the foundation of your Personal and Professional Brand,' and your company, is built on the right principles.  If you are challenged professionally, a solid brand will lead your actions, guide your thoughts and directly impact your results.  Your brand should influence every decision at work and at home.  A strong, pure and improving Brand is the lifeblood of people and companies alike.  Brand will outperform wealth because money can be lost, but Brand endures.  A humble, thankful Brand will surpass failure because repentance and real change never comes from a profession or person full of pride and indifference.  A true and genuine Brand will fix mistakes, repair relationships and create opportunities from life's painful errors. 

When a person or a company knows their Brand, communicates that Brand and most of all, operates and lives by that Brand, they will always have HOPE.  A good Brand builds a good legacy and lifts us up when we cannot stand on our own and it can help those who have fallen to have hope again. 

The fall season is the perfect time to book a complimentary consultation.  Your image (Fashion) plays a vital role in helping others to distinguish your Brand either you control how other's will perceive you, or you give them the ability to create an opinion about you that may not be true. 

Ask yourself a few questions:

  • What is your Personal or Professional Brand?' 
  • Is it a weight, or is it HOPE? 
  • Is your image inviting? 
  • Does your Visual Brand inspire others?
  • Does your first impression tell the world about your talents?
  • Does your image tell others you have integrity? Experience? Are professional? Educated?

If you are unsure, let MODA Image Consulting help you or your business shape your Brand and turn opportunities into success in your life and business.  Consultations are always complimentary.


RECENT BLOG POST: Integrity never goes out of style...Click here to read more.

Over the past month, I have seen integrity in the Personal and Professional Brand' of two professionals whose services I have utilized over the past few years.  I must say that integrity is one of the most important Personal and Professional Brand' descriptive words an individual or company can have.  If the word integrity is linked to your entire life, I can promise you that your visual image will consistently shine.  Integrity is not found in a closet, it can't be put on like make-up or a tie, and you can't buy it at the store.   Integrity shines brighter for a person better than any fashion or style could ever shine.

What is beautiful? Don't listen to the liars...
clear

A Personal Note from our CEO, Mila Grigg…

What is beautiful?

Many times I will read a magazine, blog or a column that tries to tell you how to be more beautiful.'  I am in the world of Brand, Image, Fashion many people call this the beauty' industry when referring to the fashion side of what I do…In many of my Brand seminars or training sessions for corporations, I initially tell them that what I do is not about cute' or pretty' or handsome' it is about helping people to be the best they were created to be.  We are wonderfully made, created perfectly and we are already beautiful. 

To the people who try to tell you how to be more beautiful by buying the right clothes, products or looking a certain way that is absolute RUBBISH.  They are trying to sell you something, create fear that you are not beautiful and have a clear lack of integrity.

My passion is helping individuals to express who they really are to the world to ensure that people SEE them for who they really are.  It is true that sometimes we are not representing the best side of ourselves not because we don't want to, but because we are not all equipped with the knowledge of how to.  This does not mean we are less beautiful. 

When I work with individual clients in Brand coaching, fashion or image, I dig deep to understand them.  Talents, goals and core beliefs are so important to know I want the world to SEE how incredible each client is.  It is a visual world, I agree.  We should strive to present ourselves in a way that tells others who we are, invites people in, inspires others to greatness and shares our talents in a way that helps us to shine.  You were created for a special purpose and task let others see what that is!

Image and fashion coaching is NOT about how to be beautiful you are there, you are beautiful, you couldn't be more beautiful.  No other person on this earth is like you you are unique and there is only one of you.  How amazing is that? 

My goal is to show the world your uniqueness, to help you to feel more confident, to help you to reach your goals and succeed in life by defining your Personal and Professional Brand' in a way that helps those around you to know you better not to make you more beautiful…What an arrogant thing for someone to think they can help others to be more beautiful.  It is impossible for me to do that, impossible for anyone to do that YOU ARE ALREADY BEAUTIFUL!

So, please, don't read those ridiculous blogs about how to be more beautiful they are meant to create a fear that you somehow need help being beautiful.  That is a fear based sales approach and those are all lies.  Those people or companies simply want to sell you products or services.  Enough is enough. 

By the grace of God I have built MODA Image Consulting to inspire you to be the best that you were created to be.  I am here to help you, teach you and inspire you.  Call or email me anytime, I would love to hear from you.

Warmest,

Mila

Integrity always looks the best...
clear

Over the past month, I have seen integrity in the Personal and Professional Brand' of two professionals whose services I have utilized over the past few years.  I must say that integrity is one of the most important Personal and Professional Brand' descriptive words an individual or company can have.  If the word integrity is linked to your entire life, I can promise you that your visual image will consistently shine.  Integrity is not found in a closet, it can't be put on like make-up or a tie, and you can't buy it at the store.   Integrity shines brighter for a person better than any fashion or style could ever shine.

One of the professionals I saw these last few weeks was someone whose services were terminated for poor professional work performance.  While this person failed professionally, they still look great in my eyes because they told the truth when the truth was asked of them.  They chose integrity over their professional goals.  They told the truth knowing it could damage their business and reputation, but chose the path of the truth.  This person was courageous to tell the truth in a world that can be so full of half-truths.  While I was disappointed by their service, I respect their character.  What a legacy to leave behind.  A person without integrity can't ever look as good as sloppy clothes look on a person of integrity.

The other professional this week provided greater work than I paid for.  That is true value!  They did more than I paid for, exceeded my expectations and their integrity is the foundation their Personal and Professional Brand.'  Whenever I see my new advisor, I see integrity before I see their style.  Integrity should be seen on everyone, and when you practice integrity, your marketing and advertising costs plummet.  Integrity brings in business and creates lasting relationships.  Integrity makes you a very visible light in a dark and grey world.

If integrity is not a part of your Personal and Professional Brand,' then decide to change today.  Seek truth, repent from your old Brand,' and live a life of integrity.  I guarantee success will run after you instead of you chasing after success.  Nothing look as good as integrity!
