Tom Landry, Nick Saban and...Kliff Kingsbury?

Tom Landry, Nick Saban and ... Kliff Kingsbury?

Some of you may not know that I am this OLD SCHOOL, but I loved the days of football when the games was played in the cold snow and the coach made a statement on the sidelines by his style. The days of old were seen in the coat and tie of Tom Landry and his fedora hat, resulting in the Dallas Cowboy Dynasty.  Today we have Nick Saban who is chic in Alabama style. Bama logos, great fitting shirts and pants and the swept back dark hair - always neat and always perfectly clad.  He is "The Polo Look" and current king of college football. Some even saying the unthinkable, Bear Who?

Now the latest style coach is Hollywood look-alike Kliff Kingsbury of the 4-0 Texas Tech Red Raiders.  This designer wearing, style conscious coach who loves Tommy Hilfiger and Marc Jacobs, who is often referenced back to Hollywood Heart Throb Ryan Gosling (to each their own opinion on what a real heart throb is).  He is the latest in style, and is an up and coming college coach superstar. It appears for now that his style on the field and off the field is inspiring the team around him but like any young designer in today's world, he is yet to be tested by the challenges of stiff competition, the cold rain of an October game and the last second tick of the clock that determines if his team is bowl bound or watching the games on TV over the holidays.

His coaching contract even includes creative control over the uniforms of the team.  He said he wanted to be able to have a feel for what his team wanted to wear.  He continues to say that he thinks it makes a big difference because if they look good, they play good.'  This is true in every area of life. 

I love his swagger, even the idea that he wants to meet his Hollywood look alike, Ryan Gosling, but excuse my old school approach…I love a winner. Looking great is important, and inspiring others is so important when it comes to understanding and promoting one's Personal and Professional Brand.' In the end, you have to put up the numbers. You can look great for a season, but dynasties, unlike the fame of Hollywood, are built over time. The same is true for a GREAT BRAND. So keep going Coach Kingsbury, stay in style: But to be the best game in town you have to win the biggest games in town.  Good luck.

There is something about Tom Landry and Nick Saban's style that we just love as Americans. Oh yea, I know what it is, WE LOVE WINNERS.  The winning is what gives strength to the style of your favorite sports team and players, and yes, NOW THE COACHES. Build a winning Brand, and call on MODA when you want to make your style a part of what makes you a WINNER.

Do you have a Personal Advisory Board?

Do you have a Personal Advisory Board?

I am so excited about this fall season and the close of 2013. It has been such a rewarding year personally and professionally. I am more than thankful for all of the blessings and character shaping tribulations I have faced. The advice of my friends, peers, pastors and advisors have guided me through some tough questions and kept me focused on the important things while providing for my family and successfully serving my clients. I am blessed to have the most incredible Personal Advisory Board (PAB).  If you don't have one; it's time to start building one! 

I have worked with some of the top guns in business, sports and household management. It does not matter what your job title is; everyone really is their own boss when it comes to running their lives professionally and personally. You are the BOSS OF YOU.

  • Have you ever been passed over for a promotion?
  • Do you feel confident when you leave the house every day?
  • Do you have dreams that you need to dust off?

Every day we face choices in life that will have short and long term consequences.  This fact is true for the CEO of a multinational firm and the 'Home Professional' who is raising a household of future stars and professionals. One of the most valuable members of your PAB is your personal and professional brand advisor.

MODA Image Consulting is the strong member of your PAB that helps you look your best, feel your best and be your best. MODA is the PAB advisor that will help you determine your best direction for reaching your goals, match your Brand to your personal fashion and style, and be the advisor who is beside you in tough and great times. We help  your other PAB advisors such as your accountant, legal firm and health expert because we help them see who you are as much as what you do.

We shape the Brand that gives all your other advisors insights and a map for understanding you.

It is your Professional and Personal Brand' that reflects your character, and your character is what directs all of your choices.  Each choice and action should go through your branding filter if you don't have one, it is time to define yours.  Decisions begin with brand it is how you make decisions, differentiate yourself from others and stay consistent and true to who you are.  So, who is on your Personal Advisory Board?'

  • Is your PAB nonexistent, missing a few key advisors or totally dysfunctional? 
  • Are you certain of the direction you are taking in life?
  • Does your 'Personal and Professional Brand' correctly speak for you?

If your answer to any of these questions is NO, then you need to add MODA Image Consulting to your Personal Advisory Board. If your PAB is nonexistent, call us so we can get started on creating a winning brand that will lead you to the best Personal Advisory Board you can have.

We look forward to serving you.
