Dallas Image Coach Julie Thurburn with Colour IQ on Empowering Women on the stage and in life.
If you’ve read our articles you know we celebrate women showing up beautiful and brilliant which is why we enjoy shopping for fabulous women. You see, we believe that women are more powerful clothed than naked – especially in public. When women show up at work, at the mall, or at the networking group in attire which exposes their girl parts they not only degrade themselves, but all of us. As a single mom, this was a constant struggle while trying to raise a daughter to focus on ‘who’ she is not on ‘what’ she’s got.
A trip to the mall should not include the view of a silhouetted derriere so perfectly outlined by leggings or yoga pants that the public at large can distinguish one cheek from the other – or see through to the center of her earth. Nor should there be ‘booblettes’ (the result of wearing a bra too small and thus creating an extra set of boobs which jiggle like jell-o with each step), it’s just too easy to buy a well-fitting bra.
Relationship marketing does not require you to show up nude or nearly nude. Creating a personal brand associated with integrity, credibility, and trust requires you to be clothed. What kind of business are you marketing with your attire…daytime or nighttime? What do you want people to say about you? According to Shakespeare ‘all the world’s a stage’ and Phineas T. Barnum believed that there was ‘no such thing as bad publicity’. Your life is your stage and the publicity you create will generate a ‘top of mind awareness’ in either a good way or a discrediting way. What kind of publicity do you intend to create this year?
We applaud this article from SheKnows which focuses on the soft porn that many pop stars engage in so you will buy their music. Sadly, these talented, beautiful women have chosen the way of a ‘well undressed’ skank to make a lucrative income. Financially, they are well rewarded but their legacy is one of emotional bankruptcy for the girls who follow them. The boys who follow them fail to show up as real men and respect a woman too much to pay her to sink to such low standards. Click on the link above to read the full article.
