Psssst .. are you ready to learn how to ‘bribe’ your closet to be your friend? Maybe ‘bribe’ is a strong word for when you want to be ‘friends’, since what we really want to do is ‘treat’ your closet great so it can give you love and comfort in return. Hmmm, comfort from a closet? Yes!


After following these tips your “new found friend” (your closet!) will always be there for you when you need an item from it.


When closets are cluttered people tend to just drop items anywhere & everywhere; therefore THE SECRET KEY to your closet happiness is: 


having a designated area for items so that every time you open your closet you will (by habit) know where to drop, pick, pull, place, look in, or reach for your item. And it will almost feel as if your “friend” hands an item to you when you open your closet door. Here are some bribe ideas, oh .. I mean treats for your closet and YOU:

  • Clothes: Sort & arrange shirts by sleeve length (from long to short) – this will make the space look & feel organized and roomier. To maximize space, buy a hanging closet rod (cost is approx. $10) so you can place clothes on the bottom of your closet.
  • Shoes: Sort shoes by usage. Those used more often should be accessible, least used should be placed from your farthest reach. If your closet is too small to place a long shoe rack, I recommend that you purchase clear cubbies that stack upwards & sideways (cost is approx. $7). To keep your tall boots from drooping over, roll up an old magazine & insert it into your boots. Also, hang them if you have space in your closet.
  • Bags: Hang – hang – hang! Hang all bags that have straps so the straps do not turn into octopus tentacles when you reach for the bags (long straps tend to sometimes get tangled-up with other items when not bribed (treated) with an organized plan. I suggest you use “S” hooks (sold at most local hardware) to hang on a pull-spring rod. The key is to hang the bags in a space that is viewable & accessible without having to pull one bag out and fear an avalanche (yikes!).
  • Door: Maximize your door space – “INSIDE” your door. I recommend placing a garment hook (about 5″ length – approx. $9) inside your door, here you can place a few business suits for the week or pick and place the clothes you will be wearing after you shower in the morning.


Again, the key to having an organized closet is to have designated areas for all your items within your closet. Now many people may ‘know’ this, but do not implement it thereby missing out in the comforts that organization brings, so be different and treat yourself great. And, if you treat your closet with a few economical commodities and organization, it will return the favor by staying de-cluttered and organized. If you want me to take a peek into your closet or rooms to give you my suggestions go to: Analyze My Room.

The Key to Your Powerful Brand Image

More often than not, each piece of your brand image was created when you needed it, but not altogether in a strategic fashion. Your image may look fine, but does fine help you grow?

Eventually as you scale, your image foundation cracks, and the way your business presents itself no longer helps propel growth – costing you time and money to fix.

When you unlock your brand power, you get to pick and choose how people perceive you and your brand.

Our Image Mastery System™ takes the 5 key brand components that you already have and ties them together in a way that amplifies your results and achieves your vision.

I feel like a whole new person. I’ve been unchained from the old self. I’ve been freed to laugh and dream and smile. And I’ve become more accessible to my clients, which is the whole point.

Donna Terrell, Criminal Defense Attorney

It is hard to explain why Lee is so brilliant at what she does because it is almost like magic. She pierces through your personality and reflects who you are in what you wear. She does not just pick out great clothes – she picks an outwardly appearance that creates a comfort zone while also allowing the world to see the real you.

Nate Casey, Entrepreneur

Working with Lee has dramatically increased my revenue, not because of what I’m wearing but because of how I show up when I am dressed like my future self.

Angela Lauria, The Difference Press

When I reflect on who I was before working with Lee, I see that everything about me was a muted version of who I am today. And thanks to Lee’s incredible gift, I’m me. I now show up every single day: as the thought-leader Lee helped me dress to become (and be).

Hillary Walsh, Esq., New Frontier Immigration Law

Thank YOU! It was such a fantastic mini-class you took us through. You got everyone really into it! I can hardly believe that I actually had to cut them all off. You are a force! We are very lucky to have had the benefit of your help and we’re all better for it.

Megan Graves, Client Happiness & Team Happiness Coordinator, Upleveling Your Business

You are amazing!!!!!! I’ve been thinking about our conversation all day and this is just brilliant – you are a strategist and creative genius. Your vision completely resonates with me. I am so grateful for you, Lee.

Kelly McGrath, Esq., Kelly McGrath Law

Lee had a surprising way about her that uncovered my deeper self, my reason for being, and encoded it onto my wardrobe like a symbol—a moment-by-moment reminder of who I am, and what I’m here to do. Her brilliance crept up on me; I didn’t realize it was her behind the changes in my life until months afterwards. Now, I am able to approach everything I do from a place of power.

Jonathan Sparks, Esq. Sparks Law

Lee brings to life a vision bigger than I imagined. I’ve had the pleasure of working with her on my personal brand, photo shoot strategy, and the brand experience of events for my non-profit. Through each piece she’s helped me grow as a leader and an organization. I love having her on my team.
