Last week my Stylish Inner Circle members enjoyed a great class taught by life balance expert and founder of YuDu Concierge, Sarah Hays. Sarah shared great tips on how to take the overwhelm out of a forever growing to do list. I really loved Sarah’s perspective on how to have life balance and it made me realize that whether you’re figuring out how to have better time management, or better style, the key to success is the same—you have to think outside the box.

Thinking outside the box doesn’t involve doing something that feels completely foreign or crazy. It’s simply changing the way you typically do it. One of my favorite quotes comes from marketing and mindset coach, David Neagle. He says, “To change your life you have to change your life.” Duh! Yet it’s sometimes the most challenging thing to do.

The first step starts by being willing to think outside the box, thus resulting in change. For instance, Sarah’s talk made me realize that my time management is hindered by feeling overwhelmed over where to start taking action on my to-do list. She suggested prioritizing the list. Give each item on the list a letter such as A, B, or C according to its importance. Easy solution, but it was one that hadn’t occurred to me. Prioritizing my list requires me to think outside the box.

It’s the same with your style. If you aren’t finding happiness with the way you look—start thinking outside the box!

Think Outside the Box When It Comes to Your Style

  1. Add an accessory. A bold necklace or funky shoe can completely change the look and feel of an outfit.
  2. Try on a color you’ve never worn. Sticking with the same colors can leave you feeling drab and bored. Remember that a color comes in many different shades and you may find the perfect one for you that is totally unexpected.
  3. Don’t settle. If you need comfort and style, don’t quit until you have found both. Settling keeps you in the same old unhappy style box.
  4. Get unbiased advice. Ask the opinion of an honest friend or a trusted stylist. The benefit of a fresh eye from a new perspective is often priceless.
  5. Do something different. Shop different stores. Try something on you ordinarily would not. Hang your black shirt back up in your closet and put on one with color that you hardly ever wear.

To borrow from David Neagle, just remember that to change your style, you have to change your style.

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.
