21 Lessons To Jumpstart Your Personal Image

Transform your life with your personal image.

This weekend marked a pivotal moment in my journey as a designer, founder, and speaker. I was bestowed with the honor of being the opening keynote speaker at the world's largest planning conference: GO WILD. This privilege placed me on the lineup with the esteemed Martha Stewart, who delivered the conference keynote. My talk, titled 'Building an Elegant Personal Image,' was a testament to rising above my struggles and insecurities and committing to my personal growth—a testament you, too, can experience.

If there was ever a moment of self-doubt or questioning my purpose, this weekend dispelled it all. The opportunity to interact with some of the world's most creative minds and witness the profound impact of my work reaffirmed that the gifts and contributions we have hold more value than we could ever comprehend.

Following my presentation, there were endless lines filled with people waiting to take photos, steal a hug or share how much my talk resonated and inspired them. It was incredible! I left the conference with several insights I wish to share with you today.

Why Your Personal Image Matters

I share these lessons with you because my memorable experience from the conference was heightened as a result of investing in my personal image: my appearance, my behavior, and my communication. This past weekend, I saw the value of planning out the details for each one. 

As I shared in my talk:

"I can't control what others think. I can control what they experience."

If you dream of experiencing more success, more opportunities, more advancement, more connections, more promotions and more fulfillment, it's time to invest more in your personal image by planning out the details: 

  • Plan your outfits
  • Plan how you engage with others
  • Plan how you speak to others
  • Plan your presence
  • Plan your posture

...In a way that is meaningful to you.
