3-Month Personal Development Programs

(Dating with Purpose & Clarity | Influential Woman of Style)

"We are communicating to the world on a subconscious level that we either value and respect ourselves or we dislike and undervalue our self-worth; which ultimately influences how key people in our life will respond to, interact and communicate with us based on the same level of respect we extend to ourselves."

Personal Style Development Core Basics

1. Current Lifestyle – Your current wardrobe aligns positively with the direction your life is heading in. If you are changing careers, in the process of launching your own business, starting a new job or revamping your staggering social life how you dress and feel about yourself is directly influenced and reflected through your inner self-confidence, and your core personal values.

2. Essence of Style – The essence of who you genuinely are is naturally illuminated through your unique style personality and your image management techniquesWhat is your style personality? Your style personality makes up the essence of your authentic inner spirit, and your preferred style aesthetic. You will find that some women will consistently gravitate towards a particular cut, fit and style of clothing, while other women may enjoy experimenting with various colour combinations, patterns and fabrics. These fashion and style preferences are linked to the original six style archetypes; watch the Discover the Essence of Your Personal Style Series FREE Webnar

3. Colour Synergy  – Your wardrobe and accessory colours can positively enhance your interactions with others, or negatively impact your ability to visually communicate and interact with an empowered, commanding presence. Incorrect colour application can distract and dilute or overpower your personal brand’s credibility, trustworthiness and authenticity. Correct colour application is the foundation to building a well-rounded wardrobe, thus contributing to the overall authenticity of your personal image and style.

4. Functional WardrobeYour wardrobe and accessories accommodates your lifestyle and offers you variety and versatility. A functional wardrobe will allow you to easily transition from your executive 9-5 corporate look to a vibrant, authentic image that equally commands a stylish, unique and empowered image that is reflective of your active social life or the one you desire.

Dating with Purpose & Clarity
Influential Woman of Style™

Dating with Purpose and Clarity program is designed for women who are re-entering the world of dating, whether online or off and have done the inner work on themselves and are ready to attract into their lives their ideal partner. This program will support and coach you through re-defining your personal style.

Influential Women of Style™ is an image and style reboot program created to empower you to take back control of your authentic image and style. Melissa will work closely with you in re-creating a holistic, vibrant, new image which will re-energize and heal how you feel about yourself from the inside out

 

Ladies, have you sensed for a while that something special is missing from your life and you are now prepared to take a leap of faith and begin the process of seeking the one? The Dating with Purpose and Clarity program is designed for women who are re-entering the world of dating after a divorce or many years of being single and have done the inner work on themselves and are ready to attract into their lives their ideal partner. This program will support and coach you in re-defining your personal style.

If you are rebounding from divorce or have been a perpetual single professional you will want to ask these very important questions before creating an image that will intentionally attract your ideal partner, and that would be:

1. What does this person look like on the inside (values, goals and ambition in life)?

2. What are they most passionate about? Lastly, and most importantly do their values reflect your own?

Once you have a clear mental image of who this person is and the direction you hope to take this new relationship, only then can we begin to piece together an authentic image and style that will facilitate your goal of meeting and dating your ideal life partner.

After completing the 1-week foundation Personal Image and Style revamp portion of your program, you will receive an additional 3 months of image and style coaching and support from Melissa. To successfully transition from one phase of your life to the next whether for personal or professional reasons having additional support in place will further ensure that you are on track to achieving your personal image and style goals, thus giving you a renewed attitude and optimistic approach to successfully elevating within your social circle, dating life or for other personal development purposes.

I strongly encourage you to take advantage of the bonus image and style coaching sessions with me, as it is a good opportunity to get clear on the do’s and don’ts of your new wardrobe transformation.

***

Session 1.We will go over your lifestyle questionnaire that you submitted online + your image and style vision statement via phone or Skype. During your session, we will clarify and create your personal image and style vision statement, which is based on your core personal values and your intended personal goals. You will also receive a mini workbook to help guide you through the duration of your program. Establishing a solid foundation during week 1 of your transition and transformation is pivotal to ensuring your desired results.

Session 2. You will discover and learn more about colour synergy and the importance of correctly applying your signature colours to your career wardrobe and everyday accessories. Specific colour application will be utilized to correctly analyze your core colours/related season (Autumn, Winter, Spring or Summer) and your flow seasonal colour analysis. A very detailed and scientific method will be used to complete this portion of your transformation.

Session 3. Two topics will be covered: The Essence of Style and Body Analysis. I will go over your exact measurements and discuss in detail styling tips and tricks that are specific to your body type, including your facial proportion and specific accessories that can further enhance your facial features. The Essence of Style can either be done in-person or Skype. You will learn about the 6 style archetypes and how your style personality is connected to at least two of these fabulous archetypes.

Session 4. This phase of your program is very intense, but also cathartic as we spend a significant amount of time detoxing your closet, which means you will be letting go of a lot of emotional baggage you probably never realized was attached to the current condition and energetic vibe of your personalized wardrobe. I promise you when we are finished detoxing and reorganizing your wardrobe and closet you will feel more uplifted mentally and spiritually. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves because we are going to get to work in helping you emotionally let go of clothing pieces that are no longer serving a purpose in your new life and the direction that it is transitioning into. Also included in this session is an in-depth exploration of your current wardrobes colour foundation and how your recent colour analysis conducted during session 2 will be incorporated into your new wardrobe. Melissa will also take you to the tailors (if needed) to alter clothing items that can be re-worked into your wardrobe, as well as donate clothing items that are no longer serving you a purpose.

Session 5.Shopping with intention is the game plan. Based on our previous sessions together I will have created a transitional image and style report for you. Having a solid understanding of the direction your new personal image and style will transition into is key to shopping effectively and with purpose.

There are two options available to you for this portion of your program:

First option: I can pre-shop a few stores for you according to your chosen wardrobe budget and your Essence of Style report, I will then have you meet me at the selected stores where you simply come in, try on the outfits I have chosen for you and at that point you can purchase what you feel most fabulous and comfortable in. Advantage of this option is the opportunity to shop in stores you otherwise would never have considered shopping at prior to booking me as your personal stylist. Learn how to invest in key clothing items that will elevate your image and style immediately without having to wade through racks of clothing that are not reflective, nor suitable to your current or desired lifestyle.

Second option:The VIP Experience: I personally visit various pre-selected stores based on your image and style report and will curate various outfits for you to choose from. However, instead of physically going into a department store to try on the outfits, you will visit me at my home studio or I can bring the outfits and accessories to you at your home or office. The advantages of this option is additional privacy, no sales associate lingering around to interrupt your time of relaxation. Lastly, you will enjoy the boasting rights of having a luxury shopping experience brought to the comfort of your home just like the celebrities do in Tinseltown. Additional fee for this option.

Session 6. Hair and Makeup consult. I absolutely love this final part of your program because we are finally ready to pull everything together, thus completing your transformational makeover. We will spend time discussing hairstyle options and vibrant makeup colors that are suitable to your profession. A private online hair and makeup look book will be created for you to browse through and for you to choose what is most appealing. Once you have made your final selections I will then set-up an in-person appointment for you with one of my exclusive hair and makeup experts where we will re-create the hairstyle you most felt a connection with via your online look-book of hairstyles. Also, if you need a mini refresher lesson in how to apply make-up correctly this option is also available.

Session 7. Melissa will be in contact with you shortly after your one-week foundations phase of the program is over to schedule and review with you any special occasions, date nights and vacations you will be attending. Once all dates have been tentatively confirmed, Melissa will be at your disposal for 3 months to further assist, support and coach you until you have successfully achieved the desired personal transition and transformation you set out to accomplish in your personal image and style vision statement.

This program is also a great fit for savvy, busy moms on the go! As a mother myself, I too have felt the brunt of managing a household while trying to appear stylishly relevant when I am invited to attend various social events. Let’s face it, being a mom is a rewarding blessing and gift, but it can also be emotionally challenging. Burnout, stress and a loss of interest in taking care of your best asset, which would be you is not uncommon among working superhero moms. You’re up just about every morning prepping the children for school, fixing breakfast and arranging after school pick-ups and drop-offs; add to that a 10:00 am morning meeting and a presentation to complete by the end of the week. At some point, it happens to all of us your professional life consumes your personal life and you no longer recognize the frumpy, tired woman you’ve slowly become.

Have questions? I bet you do (click here).

Below is an extensive list of questions regarding our image and style programs and services. Please review them carefully, as you will gain greater insight into how I like to work with my clients; thus, giving you a chance to decide whether you and I will be a good fit to work with one another. If you have any further questions don’t be a stranger, send me an email and I’ll do my best to answer your question(s).

Q1. Where do you host your in-person image and style consults?

A1. I am located in a lovely, closed-knit suburban community in the city of Ajax, ON (Durham Region). You can visit me at my serene home studio where I facilitate most of my local, in-person image and style programs which is not too far from the lake and three international shopping malls (very peaceful and tranquil option). Clients who have been properly vetted for suitability for one of the image and style development programs are forwarded my studio address once an appointment has been booked and payment confirmed.

Q2. I do not live in the Durham Region area (Ajax/Pickering/Whitby/Oshawa) but I am still interested in the program, what are my options?

A2. Distance shouldn’t be a barrier for you to participate in my professional image and style coaching programs. If you are serious about transforming and transitioning your life you have two options available to you. The first option is to meet me in beautiful Toronto, Canada in a well appointed studio space where we can conduct the in-person portion of your consult; or I can visit you at your home or office (this option is applicable to Toronto or GTA clients only).

Q3. Why are your image and style development programs 3 and 6 months in length?

A3. I want to ensure my clients leave my programs not only feeling 100% transformed, but also equipped with the knowledge they need to upkeep and maintain their own image and style from an authentic and empowered position. It is called an image and style development program because it was very important to me not to offer surface level image consulting services. Clients who choose to work with me will be challenged and encouraged to go within and dismantle the inner negative chatter that has held them back from truly embracing their signature image and style. If you are not ready for such a commitment or you only want to up-level a specific domain of your image and style, I also offer other image and style options that may be more advantageous for you.

Q4. Do you accept international travel request to meet with clients who are interested in your image and style programs?

A4. Yes, on an exclusive basis I am available to a limited amount of international VIP clients who are unable to travel to Canada due to business obligations or privacy issues; and prefer to stay in their country of residence. However, travel fees, transportation and accommodations are to be 100% covered by the client, in addition to the program fee, as well as your chosen wardrobe budget.

Q5. What if I do not like my image and style transformation?

A5. Good question! But, highly unlikely it will happen when you are working with me. Apart from my own personal journey of transformation and transition I am formally certified in the profession as an Image Consultant and Personal Stylist, I also possess a diploma in Fashion Arts from Humber College where I spent two years honing my skills in personal styling, visual aesthetics and colour theory; I am also a graduate of the Law & Society program with special interest courses taken in Women’s Studies from York University. Not to worry, I’m qualified and passionate about helping you up-level your image and style and ultimately transforming your life. However, in the very rare circumstance you happen to feel that your transformation was not up to your standards (again, very rare occurrence) I will continue to work with you at no extra charge(for a limited time period) until we have crafted the perfect image transformation that is suitable to your taste.

Q6. What is included in my image and style follow-up coaching sessions?

A6. Once we have wrapped up the loose ends of your final consult I usually like to give you a couple weeks to settle into your new image and re-purposed lifestyle. During this time, you are encouraged to communicate with me and ask any questions you may have via Skype, email or phone. The image and style coaching sessions are approximately 30 minutes in length and cover any image and styling topics you may have.

Q7. You mentioned member access to your Facebook Group once I have completed the program, what is that all about?

A7. I decided to create a private member only group for clients who have successfully completed the personal or executive image and style development program. The groups are for your continued support among other fabulous, ambitious women who are interested in networking and sharing their amazing stories of transformation and transition with one another. I find this to be a great way to stay connected and up to date with all my fabulous clients with whom I have worked with.

Q8. What is the best way to get in contact with you if I have any further questions regarding your programs?

A8. You can either contact me via the official booking form Contact Mel, or you can call the company number directly and leave a detailed message. I will usually get back to you within 24 hours. If you contact me on the weekend, please allow 48 hours for me to contact you back.

Q9. How much will I be investing in myself if I sign-up for one of the personal image and style programs?

A9. I think the better question to ask is how much do you value yourself and do you believe you are worth the investment? Your personal image and style speaks volumes to the world long before you’ve had the chance to formally introduce yourself. A disheveled or dated image can cost you a new job, you risk being passed over for a promotion or a missed opportunity to impress a potential client or future life partner. More importantly, as discussed earlier, the effort in which you put into your image and style will always communicate outwardly into the world how much you value and respect yourself. Remember, you only have 7 seconds or less to make an amazing and memorable first impression.

Q10. What is your refund policy?

A10. Please review our refund policy – Click Here
