Learn How to Ignite Your Inner Passion to Reach Your True Career Potential as an Image Consultant, Personal Stylist & Personal Shopper

At the Sterling Style Academy we receive many calls from students who are interested in becoming an image consultant, personal stylist, personal shopper or fashion stylist.  Although we have many informational videos on YouTube telling you about the industry and how it is a growing profession, we know that our prospective students still have their doubts and that their significant others always question the viability of this industry and if you will make money being an image consultant, personal shopper, and personal stylist.

The key to anyone’s success as an image consultant, personal stylist, or personal shopper, and more importantly, as an entrepreneur are the following:

1) PASSION.  Only with a love for this industry will you truly succeed.  You may choose a niche or direction you wish to take upon completion of our certification program, however fundamentally you must have a true love for image, fashion, and style.

2) DRIVE AND MOTIVATION.  These are the next key components in order to become a successful image consultant, personal stylist, and personal shopper.  Becoming a success doesn’t happen overnight.  It requires hard work, persistence, consistency, and perseverance not to give up even when the going gets tough.  Any business owner goes through their business ups and downs – therefore it is important to have faith, keep calm and carry on.

3) CREATIVITY AND INSPIRATION.  This is the next necessary component for success.  Not only do you need to be creative in your styling abilities and be able to work with clients to dress them according to their personal style, you must also be creative in the manner in which you approach business.  In order to become successful, you need to be able to promote yourself, your business, and your abilities to the best of your capacity.  This requires you to think out of the box, be flexible, and most importantly be able to take risks.  Those who succeed will always diversify their businesses to meet the current economic demands.  And when creativity meets inspiration, you have success.

4) SELF-BELIEF AND SELF-CONFIDENCE. Believing in yourself is the last key component in order to be successful.  If you truly want to build a business as an image consultant, personal stylist, and personal shopper, you have to really want it like nothing else you’ve ever wanted, believe that you can have it, and allow the universe to open doors before you.  Every opportunity becomes a business opportunity to foster relationships, educate people regarding your services, and attain new clients.  If you are confident in your own abilities, others will have confidence in you and your capabilities.  If you believe that you can be successful and never doubt yourself for more than a second, you will be successful and you will develop the career of your dreams.

At the Sterling Style Academy, we not only set you up for success with our Sales, Marketing, Business Brand Identity Launch Kit, we also provide you with teleclasses in order to grow and build your businesses.  To learn more about how you can become more successful, we invite you to purchase the book, Success Simplified, co-authored by Michelle T. Sterling, Sterling Style Academy Founder and Training Director.

When Researching Personal Shopper Training Programs, Consider the Experience of Your Instructor – Michelle T. Sterling, Sterling Style Academy Training Director

When you are looking up the various personal stylist and personal shopping training programs on the market, it is important to consider many factors, including: Who will be training you? Learning from your instructor’s vast personal styling and personal shopping experience is equally, if not more valuable, than mastering the text book elements and principles of design as they relate to image, fashion and style.  A good instructor will ensure you understand color, dressing for body type and building your career.  But a great instructor will also share a wealth of real world client experience and will teach you how to excel in various personal shopping and personal styling situations in which each client presents a unique styling scenario in different cultural environments.   This is knowledge that can only be gained through experience, and as an aspiring personal stylist, you want to train with Certified Personal Shopping Instructors with real world, global experience.

Michelle T. Sterling, founder of the Sterling Style Academy and Global Image Group, has offered her unique, global perspective of personal styling to an elite group of more than 350 personal shopping students from 40 different countries.  Ms. Sterling achieved her AICI Image Consultant Certification in 2003 (the first year it was offered) after working with executive and affluent personal shopping clients since 2000.   In 2000, she founded the Global Image Group, which today has a team of a dozen image consultants working with clients in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, the Middle East, South America, and Japan.

Ms. Sterling founded the Sterling Style Academy in 2002, and has developed the program into an internationally recognized Personal Styling and Personal Shopping Training Program that takes place in eight cities globally, including New York, Miami, San Francisco, Las Vegas, London, Sydney, Hong Kong, and Dubai.  While Ms. Sterling’s main focus is now her students, she continues to work with executives and personal shopping clients in each city during her travels.

Always looking to further develop the value of the Sterling Style Academy to reach a broad range of aspiring personal shoppers and stylists, Ms. Sterling introduced the Sterling Style Academy’s Online Training Program in 2005 where students can enroll per module and study at home on their own schedule to train to become personal stylists.  Online modules are formatted in such a way that it somewhat emulates the in-class training courses, giving at home students personal stylist training that is virtually on par with in-class courses.

And in 2010, Ms. Sterling wrote and published three new at home personal shopping and personal styling training workbooks with DVDs to further diversify the training options available to aspiring personal stylists.  Focused on offering the services of Wardrobe Consultations and Closet Evaluations, Personal Shopping Sessions, and creating Client Wardrobe Lookbooks, students can now purchase service-specific training tools through the Sterling Style Academy Boutique.  Taking at home training another step further, Ms. Sterling also released the Sales, Marketing and Brand Identity Launch Kit to give new personal shoppers a business and marketing plan to grow their businesses and increase clientele through proven industry marketing strategies.

All of this from a women who started working in retail at age 16. Graduates worldwide can attest to the level of professional training they received from Ms. Sterling at the Sterling Style Academy.  If you’d like to learn more about enrolling into the Sterling Style Academy or purchasing any of the at home learning tools and resources, please call the Sterling Style Academy at +1.888.866.8996 or email the Sterling Style Academy.
