5 major keys to building a successful personal styling business.
with Alexandra Suzanne Greenawalt+Michelle Rodriguez
Want to find out my styling business secret weapon? Let me tell you my story…
I’ve always been a lone wolf when it comes to business, always thought I was smart enough to figure it all out. But when the bottom dropped out of my business (like everyone else) in the 2008–2009 crisis, (after freaking out) I took the time to regroup, reassess, and clarify where I wanted my styling business to go.
I decided I needed more training, not only in business but also in marketing on the internet, necessary skills for today’s marketplace. I started with a Fast Track entrepreneurship course in NYC, but not much was applicable to styling. Then I met a social media teacher Melea Seward who taught me tons about SEO and online strategy, and I enrolled in Marie Forleo’s B-school and met some amazing women through the journey. It was generally helpful, but there was still something missing that I couldn’t quite put my finger on.
At RHH Live, I met the one woman who would change my life and business forever: Michelle Rodriguez, personal stylist and founder of The Paid Stylist. She had a waiting list to work with her, and I figured if she had more business than she could handle I could certainly learn a thing or two from her. I worked with Michelle for over 12 months and saw significant increase in new business. After working with her I signed five new clients in one month, and one of them has an AmEx black card – yes, I couldn’t believe it.
If you’ve been noodling around the internet, you’ll see there are no shortage of general “make money online” programs that will draw you in with lofty promises and take your money. But NONE of them address where the business of styling is at today.
Michelle took all of her knowledge of what works and what doesn’t in the private styling market, making her Paid Stylist Program program totally unique to the personal styling business.
The Paid Stylist now offers the COMMITTED version facilitated by STYLE MENTORS Nicole Otchy.
If personal styling (meaning you want to work with real women as your clients) is your calling, I urge you to check it out.
My word is gold to me, so I’ve always been really conscious of who I promote.
In all my years of blogging and styling, I’ve ONLY talked about designers and people who I truly believe are top notch and my blog is strictly editorial.
The up and coming stylists who I have recommended to the program had this to say:
