Does this sound familiar?
You are creative and have an eye for style. Friends always ask you for fashion advice. You think being a personal stylist would be fun, but you have no idea where to start.
If that describes you, then you're in the right place.
I understand how you feel, because that was me several years ago. Then one day I stopped procrastinating and finally took the leap. After that first closet clean out, I've never looked back.
I didn't know much about being a personal stylist when I first started off, but after years of experience (and making all the mistakes!), I'm giving you ultimate guide to creating your own personal stylist business.
Don't have a lot of time? That's okay. The course is one week long and the first day we even discusses how you can be a personal stylist full time, part time, or really part time (aka: side hustle style).
Don't have a lot of money? That's okay, too. I started my business with $0 in the bank. I'll let you know where to save and where to spend (hint: it's not on certifications!) so you don't make any costly mistakes!
Confused with all the personal stylist training and certification options out there? I don't blame you....there's a lot! (And they're not cheap) I go through the options and have a heart to heart talk about what you really need and what you don't (spoiler alert: depending on how style savvy you are naturally, you most likely won't need to spend thousands of dollars on being trained and getting 'certified').
Don't have a clue about business stuff? Most of the personal stylist programs out there tell you things you already know...like how to put outfits together. You know what they gloss over, though? How to do the business part. Like...how exactly do taxes work?...do I need a website?...do I need a separate bank account?...do I need a business license from my state/county/etc? Luckily for you, we cover the answers to all those questions and actually walk you through everything you need to know to be a legal business.
Need a refresher on body shapes, accessories, colors, and all things image? When you enroll in the 7 Days to Success: Personal Stylist Edition, you will also get FREE access to my e-course, The Ultimate #STYLE Guide (a $99 value).
Essentially, we go over everything that I wish I had known when I first started my image consulting business.
If you're ready to take the plunge and start making some (or a lot of) extra dough, keep reading!
This course is specifically designed for anyone who...
...wants to start their own personal stylist business, but isn't sure where to start
...wants to start making money and booking clients NOW!
...wants the honest, no-nonsense guide to the personal styling world
...is ready to start a new career and take control of their own schedule
Hi! I'm Leslie and I'm thrilled you're here.
After years of being a women's apparel designer...aka: fashion designer, I had an epiphany: the average woman doesn't NEED more clothes, she needs help with the clothes she already has.
That's when I left the world of design and moved into consulting. I've been an Image Consultant (which is just a fancy name for personal stylist) for years now and haven't looked back!
When I built my personal stylist business, I learned two really important things:
1. Cities aren't the only places that need stylists! My career started off in a town of 26,000 people. The 'average' person in the smaller town has the same issues as the 'average' person in the big city. Long story short: you can be a personal stylist ANYWHERE and you have an almost infinite supply of clients.
2. There is no one resource on the internet that shows you how to start a personal stylist business from scratch and goes over everything from dressing a client to the legalities of your business.
These two important lessons are what led me to create the 7 Days to Success: Personal Stylist Edition.
I've combined all my successes and the lessons from my failures to make a no-nonsense guide to starting your own personal stylist business. There's no fat or expensive add-ons. The course delivers exactly what it says: makes you a personal stylist success in just a week.
"Starting my own business was something I never fathomed until I took this course. I was scared to death, but it has been my best decision yet. After styling on the weekends for several months, I was able to leave my boring 9-5 to take my personal stylist business full time. I can't even explain how gratifying it is to be in control of my own time! I get to see my kids more than ever and I can vacation whenever I want to. I'm finally living the life I've always dreamed of."

"I did a lot of research to decide what online personal stylist course I wanted to take. Some were really expensive and took forever and other didn't have the business help I wanted. I am so happy I found this course. I spent an hour or two each night and didn't have to spend an arm and a leg. I feel totally prepared to take on my first clients!"
