#35 Money Matters When Thinking About Style

Hello, Style Classmates! This week let's chat about your deep thoughts on money and how it can hold you back from dressing as the most successful version of yourself 5-years from now (my 5-Year Rule). 

I recently read You Are A Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincere. It's a game changer, guys. I don't care what you think your relationship with money is like, it can always improve, and mine certainly has. It got me thinking, I wonder how much money mindset is holding people back from styling themselves?

Money is one of the associations one can have when they think about being stylish. Having money, spending money, looking like you have money. And if you have any hesitation about what money can do for you, then you may subconsciously start sabotaging your own closet.

"What if people think I think I'm better than them?"

"What if people think I'm stuck up?"

"What if people assume I'm a bad person?'

All these questions lead back to your own values and beliefs. You might as well be saying, "I think people with money are stuck up and bad." But as Jen Sincero writes, if you like what money can do for you and for the world when applied correctly, then talking shit about people that have it will hold yourself back from getting it. Money isn't going to come to a party where she is being shit talked, y'all! 

So, get the book. Read it. Take a hard look at your mindset on money. Now take a hard look at how you've held your style back to fit those money beliefs.

 More fun updates about free resources coming out soon and my thoughts on thinking about your future, what you will look like, and your perception of money or looking like you have money - inspired by the book You Are A Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero.

MOB Conference Speaker and Dressing in Defense

27867169_1604421116321167_3029812694096135798_n.jpg

This week's podcast was all about my speaking engagement at the MOB NW conference for the first quarter of 2018. It was so fantastic. The setting was a large bed and breakfast on a vineyard (what?!) and the attendees were even more beautiful than the scenery. All 100+ women in attendence were mother's with businesses, there to up level their mindset, strategy, and business while getting support from other mom bosses. Cause who knows better the challenges of raising a business and babies better than another mom boss, right?

My colorful and authentic speak got down to the heart of how I believe we should be dressing: like ourselves, but 5-years from now and very successful. However that version of yourself dresses, ladies, that's how you should be dressing now. Like, now! Go! ;)

I also spoke about dressing in defense in my podcast this week, which is when someone deliberately dresses in a way that deters others from seeing them or getting close to them. Some gals don't realize they are doing this and are more likely to be the sort to try to disappear. If you dress in an extreme (everything from scary goth to ultra femme glam) it better be with intention, an understanding of why you choose to do this, and a full understanding of the ramifications of who you could be turning away from your light.

If you find that you could be dressing in defense the first step is to outline the pros and cons of this action. Why do you think you do it? Are you a disappearing dresser or one who is actively keeping people at a distance? What have you gained from dressing like this? What have you lost out on because of this. Which side of the list out ways the other?

I truly believe we all have something to bring to whatever table we want to sit at, but dressing in defense can keep us in the shadows. Step out, lady!

The Trend Buffet

This episode is for the trend watchers out there. I get so many questions about trends that women don't like. It's such a compliment, because they are looking to me for advice, but I always say the same thing.
