Why am I so Confident?

Why am I so Confident?

I know just how much my delegates love their training from all the positive feedback at get at the end of each day, however by the time we get to the end of the week I always ask them: “how are you feeling?” As excited as they all are, 9/10 delegates will say to me “I just can’t ever imagine being as good as you, you’re so confident with all the knowledge.” As flattered as I am, I remind them that it is my job as a trainer to be this confident in what I teach and instead of being […]

Why everyone needs a Mentor

Why everyone needs a Mentor

Ask any of my delegates, the one thing they all say about me is just how positive I come across. This always makes me laugh because I think they’re implying I’m always like this or perhaps I was born this way. I always have to correct or rather reassure them that I’m not positive all of the time and it is in fact a mindset I have to work very hard to obtain and maintain. When I created the 5 -day Intensive Training Course that offers ongoing mentoring for every delegate I knew I had to learn to walk the […]

Incremental ways to make money as a Colour Analyst

One of our most popular courses at the Academy is our ‘Train to be a Colour Analyst’ course. We like to think the reason it’s so popular is because we are the only Academy that can get you trained in one day and we are so competitively priced by comparison. The reason we know this is because our Founder, Nisha, first ventured into Personal Styling by completing her Colour Analysis training at Aston & Hayes and the course was fantastic but it took one week and a hefty £3k to complete! We have the privilege of teaching so many women […]

Do I need to know about fashion and trends to be a Personal Stylist?

We can honestly say, hand on heart, that you absolutely do not need to be a fashionista to be a great personal stylist. If you have read some of our previous blogs, you will have found out that the key skills you need to be a great stylist is good people skills and the ability to be self-motivated to get the clients. Nisha, Founder of Style ME, didn’t start her career as a Personal Stylist until her early thirties and she tells delegates that the reason it took her so long to make her career move was her fear of […]

When is the right age to become a Personal Stylist?

When is the right age to become a Personal Stylist?

This is a subject we have had to think long and hard about be because when we first started the Academy, we had no idea who would be attracted to this great job. Initially we thought we would see the young twenty somethings who are into fashion and shopping and would love a career that combines the two. In fact, the first course we ever offered was in Soho House to this very group so on that basis I guess that’s why we thought they were our target market. But we couldn’t have been more wrong! The very next course […]
