Your first client is you!

The thing with choosing Personal Styling as a career is that you may be fearful that you aren’t 100% confident about your own personal style. Perhaps you’re thinking ‘My friends and family always tell me I look great, but does everyone think I’m naturally stylish?’ It’s absolutely fine to feel this way, I mean we’ve all got those photos that remind us that our personal style was sometimes a bit questionable!

Fail to plan, plan to fail!

This simple famous quote by Benjamin Franklin is one of my favourite quotes of all time as it really does ring true! And this has been so evident to me since running the Training Academy.

Train to be a Personal Stylist in just 3 days!

The one thing no one can accuse us of at Style ME Training is not understanding our customer.
