How long have you been in this career and how did you get into styling?
I have over 7 years of experience that involves style; I was born to do work in this area. I have a natural niche for color schemes, personal flare, while seeing missing details to create the most current look for the time and season. I got into styling after having being asked privately by many women to assist in formulating a personal style of their own. Beyond style consulting, I offer coaching responsive etiquette.
What qualifies me for the responsive etiquette is the amount of challenges that I have personally respond to and failing at it. Our responses to life responding must be acceptable and pleasing both to God and any opposing party. An amazing awareness shook my life not very long ago and since then I have change my posture inwardly not just concerning my attire. In fact I developed a manual called “HIS Style” it is a mission for me and women all over the world to take on. Becoming “HIS Style” changes everything.
What can you say are the most important skills one should have to succeed in your industry?
The most important skills is readiness, willingness and being adaptable. You cannot just say what you can do, you MUST acquire the skill and the rest falls in to place.
