Is your Image/Style business as successful as you want it to be? Or are you wondering where all those dream clients are?
TO ME, LIFE'S ABOUT SPENDING YOUR DAYS GETTING PAID WELL TO DO WORK THAT FEELS LIKE PLAYING.
I'LL MAKE THAT HAPPEN IN 90 DAYS.
What if you could...
Work with thousands of clients showing them the incredible impact of wearing the right colour & style?
Attract your ideal clients - the people who're eager to work with you?
Book up your calendar with those dream clients?
Hand in your notice at your 9-5 job and and become a full-time Image Consultant/Stylist?
Run events and workshops with high-street chains and designer stores?
Work with clients around the world?
Actually afford YOUR own dream wardrobe rather than just making that a reality for others?
Know exactly what you need to do every day to promote your business locally and online?
Put an end to procrastination and self-sabotage?
YES, I'M GOING TO HELP YOU MAKE THAT HAPPEN IN 90 DAYS.
I'm Emma Ward, a Business Confidence Coach (and former Image Consultant). I'm going to help you not only DOUBLE your confidence but learn exactly which business structures you need to have in place to get seen, get clients and get paid.
Imagine this: it's 3 months from now and the new season stock has barely made it into the shops. And yet, your Style Business has taken off.
You've developed a confident mindset. You feel like a business owner (rather than having an expensive hobby).
You're confidently taking inspired action each week to drive your business in the direction of your dreams.
You've created a marketing action plan which means you're working SMARTER not harder.
YOU'RE DOING WORK THAT COMES SO NATURALLY, YOU ALMOST FEEL GUILTY GETTING PAID. (BUT THEN YOU REMEMBER THE IMPACT YOUR WORK HAS ON YOUR CLIENTS' CONFIDENCE AND YOU QUASH THAT LIMITING BELIEF).
You're finally making things happen. Clients and contacts are finding you.
You wonder why this didn't all happen sooner.
(Because no-one taught you how that's why.)
IN 90 DAYS , YOU WON'T EVEN RECOGNISE YOURSELF LET ALONE YOUR BUSINESS.
That’s what my coaching does.
I’ve been where you are. Before I get to my story, let's start with real results I’ve already helped some of my clients get with my Business Confidence Coaching Programme:
I'VE HELPED ONE CLIENT GO FROM 5 TO OVER 20 CLIENTS A WEEK (CONSISTENTLY). SHE HAD TO HIRE AN ADMIN ASSISTANT TO HELP HER TAKE ALL THE BOOKINGS! SHE'S NOW PURSUING HER DREAM OF CREATING WORKSHOPS AND TRAINING PROGRAMMES.
I helped another client to gain the confidence to see herself as a business owner. She went from the occasional booking to consistently having 10 clients a week. Instead of hiding away, she gained the confidence to have a professional photoshoot and develop her beautiful website. She now runs monthly promotional events and group workshops. She created a strong brand and message which means she's doing less work but more ideal clients are finding her!
ONE CLIENT PUT HER DREAM OF STARTING A FASHION BLOG ON HOLD FOR YEARS BECAUSE SHE WAS TERRIFIED OF WHAT OTHERS WOULD THINK. WE WORKED ON HER CONFIDENCE AND SELF-ESTEEM. SHE'S IS NOW NOT ONLY BLOGGING REGULARLY BUT BUILDING HER SOCIAL MEDIA FOLLOWERS DAILY.
I helped another Image Consultant to create her 12 month plan and then collapse the time-line. Instead of her distant dream of running workshops, she is now making it happen. She's written the content, contacted the venues and already had women signing up. That's what happens when you turn 'one day' into right now.
I ASKED ONE CLIENT, WHO HAD JUST STARTED HER BUSINESS, TO STATE HER 'DREAM' 3 MONTH GOAL. SHE WAS EXCITED BUT OVERWHELMED WITH HOW TO MAKE IT POSSIBLE. TOGETHER WE BROKE IT DOWN INTO BITE-SIZED PIECES. SHE SURPASSED HER GOAL AND IS READY TO AIM EVEN HIGHER.
I've held every client accountable to her goals. I've also helped her to dream bigger than she every thought possible.
YOU HAVE YOUR OWN VISION OF WHAT A DREAM BUSINESS LOOKS LIKE, SO YOUR RESULTS WON'T BE EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE WOMEN ABOVE. BUT THEY'LL BE JUST AS RADICAL. I TAILOR EVERY COACHING SESSION TO SUIT YOU AND YOUR GOALS.
I want to tell you about a woman who:
- Followed her passion and invested in training
- Proudly framed her Image Consultant certificate in her newly painted 'studio' (a.k.a. the attic room)
- Registered her Image Consultancy business with the tax-man
- Bought all the paraphernalia including over 100 colour drapes (she was like a kid in a sweet shop)
- Practised on family and friends
- Designed and printed leaflets and business cards
- Asked a friend to create her a website
- 'Built it and hoped they would come'
- Waited and waited and still didn't have the clients she'd dreamed about
- Invested heavily in MORE training, hoping this was the magic solution. (It wasn't.)
- Felt frustrated, overwhelmed and embarrassed (maybe she wasn't cut out for this 'business stuff'?)
THAT WAS ME. IN 2008!
YES, I UNDERSTAND YOUR FEAR AND FRUSTRATION. I paid well over £6500 ($9200) on training to become an Image Consultant but I was still completely clueless when it came to running a business. I hadn't realised that by definition it meant that I was an ‘entrepreneur’!
We had someone come and talk to us about bookkeeping. BUT in order to have 'income' you need clients and once I had worked with friends of friends, everything dried up. My expenses far outweighed my income and therefore my chances of recouping my outgoings, let alone making a profit, were slim-to-none.
I didn't realise that as well as having the skills I also needed the crucial business knowledge. I had a website and social media accounts but I knew nothing about marketing myself locally or online. Plus I was painfully shy; part of me was too scared to actually be a success because I knew that meant 'putting myself out there'. (Shudder)
So after too many years to admit, I had to do something about it. Enough was enough. Clients weren't going to just beat down my door...I needed to GET OUT THERE and BE SEEN. My God was that a terrifying thought. But the alternative was far worse – having to throw in the towel and go back to being a classroom teacher. That was not an option – I had come too far with this and spent too much money to just throw my dreams away.
I had to transform not only my confidence but my skills as an entrepreneur.
I began by transforming my confidence. I read copious books; I journalled; I attended seminars. I even trained in EFT (tapping). And I hired a Confidence Coach to help me to see my blind spots.
I finally had the courage and confidence to GET OUT THERE and BE SEEN in my Image Consultancy business. Instead of hiding away I was actively promoting my business.
- I had a professional photoshoot and updated my website
- Advertised everywhere I could think of locally (and online)
- Increased my social media coverage
- Made YouTube videos
- Spoke to roomfuls of women
- Was interviewed on BBC Berkshire radio
- Contacted and appeared in newspapers
- Wrote a monthly style column for a local magazine
- Ran colour and style workshops and parties
Here are some of the companies/organisations I was a guest speaker for (Yes, ME - the girl who used to blush in front of strangers!!!)

IN 2013 I REALISED THAT IT WAS THE CONFIDENCE PIECE THAT I WAS SO PASSIONATE ABOUT (RATHER THAN THE CLOTHES) SO I TRAINED TO BE A CONFIDENCE COACH
THE COACHING ACADEMY I CHOSE SPECIALISED IN ONLINE BUSINESSES AND IT BLEW MY MIND.
If only I had had that business knowledge when I ran my Image Consultancy business I would have had a far greater impact in a much shorter time. It's not enough to just be a skilled Image Consultant. It's not even enough to be skilled and CONFIDENT. To have the greatest impact you have to have the skill AND the confidence AND understand business and marketing. Because of this, I coach my clients to increase their confidence, develop a success mindset PLUS the business structures.
That's why my clients are able to get such incredible results in a short space of time.
SKILL + MINDSET + STRUCTURES = CONSISTENT CLIENTS

HOW DOES MY COACHING HELP YOU?
I help every client to gain clarity and confidence. Why clarity & confidence?
What if you knew exactly who your Ideal Clients are, where to find them, how to position yourself as an expert and how to speak their language so they are eager to say: "How do I pay?"How wonderful would that feel? That's CLARITY
But is that enough?
No! You also need CONFIDENCE in yourself and your offerings. It's all very well knowing who your Ideal Clients are but if you don't have the confidence to get out there and in front of them then you're no better off.
I always say it would be a heck of a lot easier to tell someone else's services! But then you'd be helping someone else build their dreams rather than your own. And I know you crave more than that!
So HOW how can I help you to gain CLARITY & CONFIDENCE?
Not only am I a qualified Confidence Coach but I am also a Certified Business Coach. For true success I believe you need to right mindset and confidence as well as business and marketing structures. I know because I learn the hard (and slow) way - I'll get on to my story in a second.
Because of my own experience and training, I can support you in:
1) GETTING CLEAR ON YOUR LIMITING BELIEFS
Procrastination and inaction are caused by limiting beliefs. Any self-sabotaging behaviour is caused by our subconscious mind. Deep down we are scared of success (I know that sounds crazy) and our subconscious mind will do whatever it can to keep us 'safe' i.e. in the status quo. I'll help you uncover which of your beliefs are causing you to stand in your way get to the deep-seated fears you aren’t even aware of. I’ll teach you some of the most powerful techniques to eliminate these long-standing beliefs so you can eradicate them for once and for all.
2) PROGRAMMING YOUR MIND FOR SUCCESS
Confidence Coaching is about reprogramming the mind. I'll teach you the quickest and most effective techniques to install a success mindset. I'm all about getting you rapid results! This enables you to double your confidence and take the action required. As a result you'll be feeling confidence to GET OUT THERE and be seen by a larger audience.
3) GETTING CLARITY ON YOUR WHAT, WHY, WHO & WHERE
Clarity on your 'WHAT & WHY'.
What do you want to achieve in your business? What will your business look like when it's 'finished'? The majority of people know what they don't want in life but for success you have to know exactly what you DO want - you need to be crystal clear on your desired outcome. You also need to know exactly WHY you want this business success. Both of these will keep you motivated and drive you to success on the days when you feel like quitting; because resilience and persistence are the keys to success.
Get clarity on your 'WHO & WHERE'
All the confidence in the world isn't going to help if you're speaking the wrong message to the wrong people. You need to define your 'WHO' (your Ideal Client) and WHERE they are. I love nothing more than seeing the light-bulb moment as my clients discover who they’re truly meant to serve. Then from that place, you can conduct ideal client research (it's not as scary as it sounds, I promise). This is where we'll get information about what your branding should look like, your website copy, and what offerings you're going to be selling - all essential pieces for building the foundation of your business. When you match your offering to your Ideal Clients and speak their language, they will be eager to buy from you. This leads to more bookings and days spent doing work you love!
4) AND ACTION...
Together we'll develop a clear marketing plan that matches your personality and enables you to quickly reach your target audience. I'm the brainstorming queen: together we’ll pinpoint exactly which marketing techniques would be best for your client (and you).We need to get you out there and in front of your dream clients and talking to as big an audience as possible. Remember that I’m a qualified Confidence Coach, so if your confidence wavers as you begin to take action each week, I’m there to help you get back on track. We’ll break down the next SIX months, at least, so you have a clear vision of where your business is going and what action you need to take. This takes away the stress and overwhelm. The clearer you are the more likely you are to do it! Taking inspired action means you'll consistently be in front of your target audience and they’ll grow to know, trust and like you and ultimately purchase. This is where the magic lies because it leads to days spent doing work you love with dream clients. That’s priceless.
And I'll hold you accountable to the steps you decided to take. I know for me this is one of the fastest ways to success.
My life and business transformed completely when I hired my own coach and I'm 100% committed to the success of my own clients. I dream bigger than they do; I won't let them play small any more. In short: I won't just leave you to try to work all this out for yourself.
