When I speak with my potential client on the phone and we’re deciding if we want to work together, 95% of the women tell me that if they had their version of an ideal wardrobe, and getting dressed could be the way they’d always imagined, and they had the image they wanted and were putting out to the world exactly what they wanted everyone to know about them… They’d be more CONFIDENT!
