I have joined Sarah Arrows blogging challenge to blogg for 30 Days. Not sure how I am going to get on but here is my first blogg!! How I became a Colour & Style Coach.
I have always had an interest in fashion and style and friends often came to me for advice, and asking me to go shopping with them. I think I have a natural flare for putting outfits together and it is something that does not feel like working to me. I also have a passion for colour for the way it looks and the way it makes you feel.
I worked in banking for many years before going into recruitment in the City where I stayed until I had my daughter many years later. Whilst she was growing up, I wanted to be around for her and worked part time at several network marketing company’s the last one for 15 years where I built up a team of around 100 people.
When Katie my daughter went to University, I decided that it time for me to find something I wanted to do. I missed her terribly and needed a new challenge and to find a job that I would love doing. It was not a hard choice as I knew what I wanted to do, and that was to train as a Colour & Style Coach. This was something I had wanted to do for many years, but never had to courage to take that leap.
How I became a Colour & Style Coach
I started to research companies to train with. I knew that I did not want to train with one of the large corporate companies as I had been working for one of those for the last 15 years. I chose a lady who runs her own company called QCIC based in Surrey. She had been a personal stylist for many years and now run her own training academy. I wanted to be independent and able to produce my own website and retail my own products. I did train in Colour and Style and since then I have gone back and trained on Wardrobe Audit and Personal Shopping. I can honestly say, I have not looked back. I really love my job and it does not feel like working.
I had to take a huge leap of faith and step outside my comfort zone to do this. If anyone had said to me at the time, that I would be able to stand in front of a room of a 100 people and give a 45-minute talk I would never have believed them.
Small steps each day and building on your knowledge and experience and I can look back and see how far I have come.
I have a passion for colour because it can not only make you look good but feel good too. All colours have an energy and wearing different colours at different times can make you feel good. Colour is used for so many other reasons, it is used for healing, and in meditation. I have thoroughly enjoyed my journey so far and my excited about what the future holds.
Colour & Style are so much more than what you wear!

Thanks for joining our 30 day blogging challenge you’ve made a great start here. What a jump from banking to colour and style. It’s always fascinating to me to here how people start off in their business and your daughter leaving for uni sounds like the push you needed to create an awesome business. Looking forward to more of your posts.
