It is truly more important to be healthy and whole than to try to match some unhealthy worldly standard. My father used to say, “I’m pretty good for the shape I’m in.” That’s a good attitude. I remind us to appreciate our body and all it does for us. It’s the vehicle that gets us where we want to go-even if the pace is slow at times. Knowing your body type directs you to flattering clothing styles and coordination. To learn more, get yourself to my Style for Life Retreat. Be careful in all you do and make mindful dressing part of your everyday life.

One of the areas that sets Conselle apart is its ability to rely on classic principles of art, and science including mathematics. As Conselle image consultants, we use the artistic elements and principles of design taught in every university level art foundation class around the world. Why? Because what you put on your body is your own artistic representation of who you are. And it communicates something about you. It may say that you are incredibly creative, artistically confused, completely boring, or something else entirely. Nevertheless, what you wear speaks before you even say a word. Because fashion trends come and go, your education can become quickly dated if the focus is only on what’s hot now. Understanding the messages each artistic element of design conveys, how they relate to the body and personality of each of my clients has helped me find the perfect fit for them. Science comes into play when we uncover differences in perception, psychological messages, figure variations and anatomy, just to name a few. These concepts are timeless and will support your career as far as you want to take it.
Judith Rasband says, “Conselle affiliates identify your natural personal characteristics or traits and align them in harmony with clothing and grooming traits, after balancing or counter balancing dominant traits as needed.”
My business is growing and will continue to flourish because of the concepts, strategies and skills based on classic academic principles that relate to what we’re seeing now and will see in the future. It’s all thanks to Conselle Institute of Image Management. A great education never goes out of style.

Before you can hope to build serious momentum in your business, become the master of the product you are selling. Remember the book, The Little Engine That Could? The poor little train full of dolls, toys, and good things for the boys and girls on the other side of mountain is stranded. The big engines refuse to help. The “Little Engine That Could”, who had never even been over the mountain, comes to the rescue. With a positive “I think I can” mantra and some hard work, that little engine eventually gains the momentum to pull the stranded train up and over the mountain, bringing good things to the kids on the other side.
Mastering the image consulting industry is a huge challenge! It requires positive thinking, hard work, and a knowledge of psychological, social, physical and artistic aspects of image. That’s a big load to carry my little engines! Picture your clients, the wonderful people on the other side of mountain waiting for you to deliver them life transforming treasures. Oh how they want those treasures! To gain enough momentum to actually get to them, you need to master the material. Otherwise, you are not only disappointing your clients, but yourself and your own reputation…and potentially marring the image consulting profession in general. So if you really want to know your business, you best do your homework. AICI, Association of Image Consultants International, offers a list of reference materials as suggested reading for the certification exam. There are a number of references listed there. If you only read one book, read the book that will help you pass the exam, Wardrobe Strategies for Women by Judith Rasband. This book is not only listed 4 times by AICI, but the author also contributed to the AICI Key Terms of the image industry which are on the AICI exam. Wardrobe Strategies is the one comprehensive book that includes everything you need to know to pass the exam. Master this one book and you will gain the momentum to have a fabulous and fulfilling career as an image consultant. Or you may choose to learn directly from the author herself at the Conselle Institute of Image Consulting and be able to say “I knew I could!”
