THIS IS THE INDUSTRY'S ONLY 6-WEEK ONLINE CERTIFICATION AND MENTORSHIP COURSE THAT INCLUDES THE BUSINESS TRAINING AND TOOLS NECESSARY TO BECOME A SUCCESSFUL PERSONAL IMAGE CONSULTANT
Put your passion for personal styling, fashion, and coaching to good use by making a major difference in a persons life when it comes to how they feel about their wardrobe and how they present themselves to the world.
Many individuals are seeking professional help because they value the personalized feedback a personal style expert or image consultant offers them. Not only can you help them define a personal style that is hassle-free and truly them, you can change their entire outlook regarding how they feel about their body and themselves. Who doesn’t want that?
Online training providers within this industry have a bad reputation. Why? Because many training providers sell downloadable pdf’s and let you believe this is “e-learning”. Far from that. You deserve better. That’s why we offer:
Each week, you’ll receive new lessons, accessible by video, audio and facilitated through a workbook:
During the second week, you’ll learn how to strengthen your clients’ body image based on body type analysis and lessons on proportion, style, and line.

You will spend this week working on your homework and catching up on previous lessons.
Now that you’ve learned how to perform the exact consults you’ll be performing with your clients, it’s time to learn how to market these services. Learn how to get exposure for your business for free or low-cost marketing strategies. We’ll dive into the basics and pro tips of social media marketing and give you tips for networking within your community. In addition, we’ll show you how organizing and planning events is a great marketing tool for attracting new clients.
During this week you’ll focus on perfecting your presence as an image consultant while establishing a two-year action plan and revenue strategy for your new company.

By the end of this module, you’ll have all the tools and information necessary to get started with your business immediately.
You’ll spend the last week working through the previous modules and homework. Upon completion of your final exam at the end of the course, you’ll walk away and proudly can call yourself a certified Personal Image Consultant.

The entire program was fantastic! I needed everything. I now know exactly how to perform the services I offer.
I waited a full year before taking this course. I wish I hadn't. I would tell aspiring image/style consultants to do it now!
The marketing skills I learned can be used not just for image consulting as well as other things I am working on.
My image consulting goals became easier to attain because of the given tools, structured content, & practical advice to put in place an achievable & clear action plan.
I have seen that I am more confident in outfits I choose for myself, as well as being more confident in helping my clients make 'smart' buys and explain the 'why' to outfit/style questions.
I really enjoyed how in-depth the the lessons are, including the helpful worksheets. I especially enjoyed the coaching calls. This course arms you with the tools you need in order to be successful.
I was completely convinced about the quality of the program even before it started. It is obvious that Shauna knows what she is talking about and she shares this information/experience/wisdom freely!
Everything was taught very clear and not just teaching the styling side, but the business as well. It’s very informative. I would recommend this program to anyone who is interested in image consulting.
I love the sophistication of the online service and legitimacy of the learning process. Lastly, the content far exceeded my expectations. The transparency and sincerity makes an online program somehow seem personal.
I would recommend this training because this program in particular also covers extensively the business aspect of it as well as social media marketing, which are important to launch any business.
This is the best online course I have ever taken. Shauna has great knowledge, business experiences and clear english!
One of the reasons that I chose the Studio was because encompassed the whole business not just techniques. You come away with everything you need to start to build your business.
The course has equipped me beyond what I expected. Being certified now gives me the confidence and with the thorough knowledge that was shared with us on the course, I feel I have it all!
The personal attention is what I enjoyed most. When I was freaking out because I felt like I didn't know what I was doing, you calmed my fears. Thank you for that!
I love Shauna's approachable yet direct and helpful approach. I have really benefitted from the coaching calls and meetings.
I loved how organized it is. It covers all the foundation of this field and sets you on the right track.
With the huge amount of training, business advice, and one-on-one support, it is worth every penny. I learned a ton of technical, business and marketing aspects, and was saved from making mistakes that I would have made otherwise.
I have walked away with hundreds of ideas that I can incorporate to my business immediately. Excellent course with immediate real world application. Loved it.
